  4. 6. Step 1: Make sure everyone understands their positions within the departments and company. The more the jobs are foggy and undefined, the more people get distracted trying to do someone else's tasks in the company. Define roles clearly. Step 2: Prioritize all the tasks you have to do. Put the most important at the top of your to-do list and start from there. Too many times, people get started on 3 tasks at once and therefore become slower in production. Step 3: Try not to waste time on each task you have assigned for the day. Make sure you set a certain amount of time for each task and stick to it. Do not make more work for yourself than you need. Step 4: Do your task right the first time and leave it at that. The more you rush through things, the more there is a possibility of mistakes and errors. Quality is important so try to do it correctly and move onto the next task. Step 5: Leave procrastination at the door when you arrive to your work place. Just get right too the task and do it. Sometimes building up a huge plan on how to complete the task appropriately slows you down. Action speaks louder than words.
