  1. ‘Time is money.’ It’s true; ask any manager. Another adage that fits is ‘Work smarter, not harder.’ Focus on one task at a time instead of doing too many tasks at once and not doing anything properly, (‘The lazy man’s load;’ when you carry too much and it all falls.) Also, even though the idea is for everyone to get along and help each other out because ‘we are a team’ is a good business model, this adage might be an important one to consider: ‘Learn to say no.’ Finish your task first, then, if you are able, help others. It’s like when you’re flying and the flight attendant says to put your oxygen mask on first. You get the idea. Finally, there is no shortage of quotes and adages similar to ‘a messy desk is a sign of a messy mind.’ I like: ‘stay organized’. Organization is key. You will be more efficient and effective if you manage your tasks successfully through detail and structure. So, work in a timely manner, do one thing at a time and do it well, finish your task before endeavoring to help a colleague, and stay organized. ‘That’s my two cents.’
