Do you own a masonry contracting firm or does the masonry contracting firm own you? If you find yourself working 60 hours a week and putting time in on weekends, you probably should spend more time planning your time. Time management planning mostly involves delegating responsibility. DELEGATE RESPONSIBILITY Masonry contractors fail to delegate responsibility for two reasons. First, the owner usually understaffs the firm. Second, contractors are often guilty of overinvolvement. Owners must learn to work with the employees and let them do the work. PRIORITIZE RESPONSIBILITIES Once the masonry contracting firm is adequately staffed, the owner must prioritize his own responsibilities. MAINTAIN A ROUTINE SCHEDULE Another technique to help a masonry contractor organize time is to create a weekly routine schedule.
