Starting a business is no joke, especially if you have invested a lot of your money in it. That is why it is important to value your time and be more productive. Want to know how I do it?
Create and follow a schedule for major tasks.
I always thought that I can do everything in the business without following a schedule, but I was wrong. After I made some recording and comparison, I realized that I spent time on some tasks that would not help me generate that much income. That is why I started to write tasks and prioritize these based on urgency and importance. Then I was able to create and follow a daily business schedule. Now I get to mark the tasks that I finished and monitor the progress that I make on my current business projects.
Set up and monitor business calendar.
When I was a student, I write notes on my diary and encircle the dates to remind me of my projects and assignments. Now I set up and monitor my own business calendar. This is where I write some major tasks like chatting and meeting clients to discuss proposals and agreements. I also have a separate online events calendar that helps me connect with my current customers so they will not miss out our important events.
Hire skilled staff to help you.
Outsourcing has been one of the best ways to manage and grow your business. I too, have been using it since I realize the importance of delegating tasks to skilled staff. It works like having too many hands that can accomplish a lot of tasks in no time. I did screen the staff before getting their services, which took time, but I have found out that it is all worth it.
To recap, all you need to do is to come up with a to do list for your major tasks, use a calendar scheduling software and outsource some of your tasks to skilled and trusted staff. These are just some of the tips that I have been following since I started the business and it helped me accomplish more tasks, connect with my target market and develop my services.
