We would like to thank all our clients, suppliers and staff for 32 great years but regret that the new GDPR regulations have made it impossible to continue as we would have liked.

Should anyone have any questions we can be emailed on mikehilite@mail.com We only have a skeleton staff but will aim to get back to you as soon as we can.

Thanks again,

Getting More Productive

getting more productive

I read an interesting article last week that I wish I'd read 40 years ago!
I've always been interested in time management and getting things done. I've learned to make quick decisions (sometimes right, sometimes wring, but I'm convinced that they wouldn't have been any better if I had taken more time).
No, where I was going wrong was getting involved in too much, doing too many of the wrong things.
Several research studies have shown that people never get more done by blindly working more hours on everything that comes up.
Instead, they get more done when they follow careful plans that measure and track key priorities and milestones.
So, if you want to be more successful and less stressed, don’t ask how to make something more efficient until you’ve first asked, “Do I need to do this at all?”
Simply being able to do something well does not make it the right thing to do.
I've heard about the 2 by 2 matrix putting “Important” and “Not Important” on one axis and “Urgent” and “Not Urgent” on the other. Then you make sure you do the “Important Urgent” first followed by the “Important Non Urgent” next. You then look to delegate the “Non Important Urgent” and perhaps forgetting the “Not Important Not Urgent” altogether.
I always noticed that every time I went on holiday I would achieve as much on my last day before I went than the whole week before. I would have to delegate and would focus solely on the important urgent.
I'm going to try and sort out my following days important and urgent work the night before from now on. Well, I'm going to try.
