Focus On Being Productive Instead of Busy

Focus On Being Productive Instead of Busy -

I recall hearing my old boss sharing a piece of advice (from one of my first jobs years ago) that still holds true to this very day:

“Plan your steps”


What he was referring to, as I was working as a line prep cook in high school as if you needed to go into the freezer to grab 2 tomatoes, think about all of the other items you’ll need, and grab these at the same time. This way, it’s 1, possibly 2 trips to the freezer instead of 4 or 5.


In the transportation industry, the same could be said about productivity, regardless of the job scope or position held.


Focusing on being productive, such as grabbing a cup of coffee, paperwork off the printer, and keys for that piece of equipment in 1 trip - instead of 3.


Or, setting your cargo securement tools up in such a way that after loading the piece of equipment, you’re not making 3 extra trips to the headache rack to grab the same chains and boomers you’ve utilized before. In the meantime, while setting yourself up, inspect your cargo equipment instead of waiting to find out the chain is no good after you tried to utilize it.


These are simple examples of opportunities we have each day to operate in a productive manner, instead of a busy manner.
