Respecting Others Time


Don't waste it

Everyone is busy these days, no one has time to get everything done in the day anymore. Our work just keeps us slammed and most often we stay late or bring it home with us.


At times we are so busy we forget things that we think are small to us, but could actually be bigger for someone else.

For example, say you’re an office manager and hired someone about ninety days ago.  At the end of that ninety days, you are to do your review on the person, give them a raise and let them know where they stand. Then the ninety days come and go and you just either forget it and never make time for that person.

On the other end the person is waiting for their raise and wanting to know their future with the company. They send you an e-mail to remind you and reach out once a week to book that meeting. Yet, you always seem to busy with other meetings and other people to sit down and set this up.

That my friend is very poor time management and sadly is becoming more and more of a problem. Just cause you have tons of meetings or things to do, doesn’t mean you can break a promise to your employees. If you are that way, you need to sit down and really make a schedule to fit everything in. After you make the schedule let your employees know when the meeting is set and if it works.

This also goes for you salesmen out there. Respect your prospect/clients time by showing up fifteen minutes early and letting them know just how important they are.

Another thing to do is try hard not to spring major plans very last-minute. Once in awhile is okay, but if you are known for making major plans three days before it happens is really hard. I am not talking about going out on a Saturday night to bar or movie, but traveling or parties etc. Give worry to respect your friends and families.

In your social and business life, you need to set calendars and dates well in advance. Respect your employees, prospects, clients, and vendors time. In return they will respect you and feel more respectful.

Respecting others time is key in this Savage World, that you are not just living in, but beginning to own!
