It's time to improve productivity for your business. Saving you time, money, and stress! We're breaking down the easiest ways to improve productivity for a happier owner and a happier business!
Use a task manager
Believe us, gone are the days of using a printed calendar. We love our calendars, but they aren't practical when you are managing a growing business and a team. There are many task managers on the market that are easy to use and can easily organize your business and to-do list in a better way. The best part? You can never lose it and you can access it from anywhere!
Pro Tip: We LOVE clickup.com and they have free plans available! It helps us keep track of all of our clients, administrative tasks, and team members.
Set goals and break goals down into tasks
Turning goals into attainable tasks is a great way to make sure you are on track to achieving them! Set 1 month, 6 months, yearly and 5-year goals, and then break those down into tasks that you can check off along the way!
Prioritize your to-do list
Make sure your attention is on the most important parts of your list, not ones that can wait or that can be delegated!
Delegate tasks that can be delegated (did you see this coming?)
We all know the person who loves to do it all and is proud of it! This is one of the biggest reasons your business isn't growing to its full potential. We know it's hard to let go, but it must be done! Hand off tasks that are easily completed by your employees, interns, or team members.
Save the best for last
Get the most undesirable tasks out of the way first (preferably before lunch). That way, you can have the afternoon to do the ones you enjoy and finish the day on a high note.
Make time for yourself
Owning a business is stressful and it can take up most of your time. Make sure to take some time to yourself so you can give 100% of your energy when you need to! This may mean hiring help, delegating, or just simply taking the day off!
