Default Wiring Recepts and Light Switches

I am having a lot of trouble. I really want to cut my time down. I am tired of being slow and the black sheep of my group. Smh...The company where I am working. They layoff workers that tend to be slow smh...I am trying to go as fast as I can. Any advice that will cut my time down will be helpful and greatly appreciated.

Get it right before you get it fast. Else you do a whole bunch of work that you get to do again. Then always look a few steps ahead and know what order things are going to happen in.

Those little holes on the back of the devices-,,, Those are called profit holes around here.

Practice makes perfect and perfect increases speed over time.

Sit and watch someone who is older and faster at it.
Before you ask him a bunch of questions, see what he is doing differently then you.
Compare what he does with what you do.

Use your eyes and your head together and learn by watching. Don't stop what you are doing but notice how things are done. If you can't be fast, be really good, you will stay on a job longer. If you or worse, someone else have to redo your work, that is a quick ticket out the door.

Out of curiosity, do you find that the people you work with often have to go back and troubleshoot stuff / fix mistakes when they test? My point being that you may not necessarily want to aspire to be like them. Within reason, slower and correct is always better for construction work.
