Is There A Better Way

Let’s talk about work overloading. Work overloading occurs when you schedule too much work in a fixed period of time.  If you think there will somehow be more time later to take care of your excessive workload, trust me, there won’t.  We only have 24 hours in a day.  That’s it.

Since you can’t get it all done, then we must come up with a way to reduce your workload.  One way, is to find ways to do your work more efficiently, thus freeing up time.  If you’re experiencing work overload, consider this option – learn to network with experts in your field.

Start off by listing at least four or five basics in your field of expertise.  Now ask yourself, who are the experts related to these basics.  It could be someone you know, some one you work with, someone who belongs to the same organizations or maybe someone who wrote a book on the topic.  Think about it for a moment.  Who would you seek out if you wanted to increase your knowledge?

This actually happened to me today.  I found an expert in the area that I was struggling with, and after just 45 minutes, we came up with a solution and I was on my way.  If I had tried to accomplish this task on my own, I can pretty much guarantee you that it would have taken me a few hours and I would not have come up with the same solution.  Not only did I get my task done but I freed up time to do other things – like writing this blog!

Some of these ideas shared by Chris Crouch, developer of the GO System.
