“I regularly use scheduling software, which helps me effectively plan for the day, week, month, or year. It also has a to-do-list feature and an alarm option, which is helpful for meeting timely deadlines. In general, though, I’m very goal oriented and self-disciplined. I like to focus clearly on one project at a time for a set amount of hours. In the past I’ve found that this has helped me save time, which in turn has given me the opportunity to implement new procedures that have ultimately saved the department time and money.”
