    Is delivered in a timely way

    Hi,

    Could you please tell me what the following question is asking about?
    Sorry I am not sure.


    Is it EQUIVALENT TO asking how I can ensure I can submit my work before deadlines?






    Sentence:
    How do you ensure that the work you do is delivered in a timely way?

    Thanks

    Hi,

    When I look at the dictionary, timely = occurring at just the right time.

    It seems to relate to "deadline".

    However, is there any other possibilities?

    For example,

    How can you complete your work as quick as possible.



    Thanks

    Re: Is delivered in a timely way

    First, it would be "quickly" not "quick" ... but that's not the request.

    No one is asking for the work to be done quickly, simply On Time (before or at deadline, when needed, not necessarily before and definitely not after). That's "timely." The idiom is more usually "in a timely fashion" or, more simply and directly, "on time."

    The answer to "How do you ensure your work meets deadlines?" might be "I develop and follow a tight schedule."

    The answer to "How do you ensure your work is done quickly?" might be "I attack it right away and never stop till it's done."

    These are two different questions, and two different solutions.
