I recently bid a job that consisted of trimming 10 junipers that are extremely overgrown almost to the point of being trees. I projected out the time to perform each phase of the project from the moment of leaving home to returning home. Well, i was awarded the job and just performed it today. When I stepped on the gas this morning i pressed my stop watch on the Timex. When I returned back to the house I was within 10 minutes of my projected forecast. The beauty of this was that I could actually just look at my watch while I was working to see how I was doing. I found this to be a valuable tool....as well as a little bit of incentive. Have any of you tried any similiar methods to see or keep a job on track?
