Back in 1948, in his book, how to stop worrying and start living, Dale Carnegie listed four good working habits that will help prevent fatigue and worry. It is still excellent advice today which can help you work efficiently and effectively. It is especially suitable to today’s small business owners who seem to have millions of things to accomplish in a day.
According to Dale Carnegie, the four working habits are:
- Clear your desk of all papers except those relating to the immediate problem at hand.
- Do things in the order of their importance.
- When you face a problem, solve it then and there if you have the facts necessary to make a decision. Don’t keep putting off decisions.
- Learn to organise, deputise, and supervise
I think that is great advice? What do you think?
