Do you prepare thoroughly before you start work?

This post is simply a question for you to ponder:

"Do you prepare thoroughly before you start work?"

By work I am including projects that you might be working on, your day to day normal work tasks or anything else you do during your working day.

Preparation really does save time, especially if you build your past experiences into effective working routines (or, habits) and checklists.

Proper preparation reduces mistakes, increases efficiency and your overall effectiveness.

You can prepare any way you like, but as the saying goes ‘getting your ducks in a row’ makes the execution of your tasks so much easier.

So, is your current approach to preparation of your work tasks both efficient and effective?
