Some people think that being busy means that you are in demand or more important than someone else. In some cases that may be true but being too busy isn’t the best way to get the job done.


Here are a few ways to lessen the workload and still allow yourself time to get the job done.


Hand Over the Work 

There is a saying that if you want something done right you do it yourself. Sure, that is sometimes true but there is nothing wrong with delegating some of the work to trusted employees or outsourcing some of your heavy load. One way to decide how to hand over some of the work is wait until the day is over and jot down a couple of things that someone else could have done for you. The next day, actually implement that and hand over the two items to someone else.


Allow Technology To Work For You

CMMS helps you lessen the load as well by allowing you to set up things like work tasks and preventative maintenance then having more time to relax. You’ll have less paperwork and a better way of keeping up with what is going on around the job site without the extra work involved. Work smarter, not harder is a phrase that is true and CMMS helps you do that.

Take Time For Yourself

Some people don’t know when to stop working so in their downtime, they’re still multitasking. This starts a pattern where you never get done with your work even if you really could be. You will start getting overwhelmed and have a sense of not having any different phases in your life except work. When you have free time, take that and use it to relax and unwind. You do not have to work 24/7.


Don’t Talk About It

It’s natural to tell people how busy you are but saying the words lends to actually being busier. Instead, focus on the task itself, work happenings, or anything but the actual focus on being busy.


Work is almost always busy and we realize that you have an important job to do but without a little downtime for yourself, you may end up getting burned out so make sure to take care of yourself as well as your job.
