How efficiently do you think you work ? Do you think there's room for improvement? What things have you picked up allong the way that save that extra bending down, that extra few mins here and there? Kneeling down and realising you left your tape measure and pencil at the other side of the room. I think streamlining your work practices can have a big impact on what you achieve in a day and also how you feel at the end of the day! I was reading an article that was suggesting improving efficiency is actually more productive than working say an extra couple of hours at the end of the day when your tired.

Being a short arse, it is always time heavy when doing bathrooms where I can't get a decent sized platform in the room....... some old house with 9 & 10 ft ceilings are a killer for me.

Efficiency in tiling is very important as it is very repetitive . If you ever do site work it's funny to see that the guys that do more than the next guy don't seem to be moving any faster and take just as many cigarette breaks .

I'm horrifically inefficient. In my defence though, most of my jobs never end up what they started off as.

Not usually a problem as mostly work dayrate so no rushing about, however starting an 80 bathroom hotel and kitchens with @widler next week on price work so we need to be efficient...full tile off floor, spacer and wedge pocket, pencil pocket, side stops set on cutter, labourer stacking tiles behind us and mixing and get em banged on.. Bathroom a day @widler ;)

I have you down as mr efficient @impish ?
I try. I've worked with dave stott (elite tiling) ex military and he's the very definition of efficiency. I've learnt a lot about being organised just by working alongside him.
Some jobs it's great to be super organised and get done and away. Other jobs though I quite like getting a bit lost and lazy.
