THE KEY TO MEETING DEADLINES

THE KEY TO MEETING DEADLINES

Understand your working pattern

In order to create rational deadlines you need to understand how you work, how much time you take to accomplish particular tasks, and under what conditions you are most productive, and least productive.

Make a schedule and follow it

Set aside a particular time of your day just for work. Once you start working within your working hours you’ll be surprised to discover how much extra time you have and how efficiently you can work.

Track your work

When you track your work you know exactly where you are at a particular. There are many software tools available that can help you track your progress; such as project management software. Or you can use something like a Google calendar or even the calendar feature of Microsoft Outlook. These tools help you create lists of jobs that you want to accomplish at a particular time interval.

Don’t over commit

Maintain a proper calendar and always refer to it before committing to any new projects. You can politely refuse more work if you know you won’t be able to finish it or it will create a stressful situation. Refusing  a project is far better than first accepting it and then not doing it or delaying it.

Keep your client well-informed

Keeping your client well-informed will avoid misunderstanding and allows you to make your deadline.  In case there is a delay it is more likely your client will be okay with it if you have kept him/her informed of the situation. Therefore, it is important that you constantly update your client regarding the status of the project.

Treat yourself when you complete a deadline

When you meet a deadline on time, treat yourself. Do or buy something you truly enjoy. It will keep you motivated.
