As entrepreneurs, we have a lot to do! And so little time to do it in. So it’s important to make the most of our time and make each day a productive one. Here are 5 life hacks to increase your daily productivity.
Make a Schedule
Create a daily schedule that works for you and stick to it as close as possible. Work in the important things you sometimes find yourself “too busy” for, such as exercise, cleaning, and responding to emails. This way you have time blocked off for everything you want to get done.
Running a business takes a lot of energy and brain power. That’s why it’s important to stay healthy by eating right, exercising and getting plenty of sleep. You’ll be more efficient when you’re at your best mentally.
Get Up Early
Try getting up an hour earlier than your regular time and see what that does for your productivity. Early mornings are a great time to get things done because there are fewer interruptions. This might mean you need to get to bed earlier to make sure you get a sufficient amount of rest.
Avoid Wasted Time
Find ways to reduce the amount of time you spend doing things that aren’t productive or enjoyable. Avoid sitting in traffic by running errands at times when there are fewer people on the road. When you’re stuck sitting in a waiting room or on the bus, use that time to check emails or update your calendar.
We all have strengths and weaknesses. Instead of spending hours and hours struggling with the things that aren’t your forte, find someone who can help. Sometimes this will require hiring some help, so it’s important to have a budget for these services. Remember, time is money.
One of the most time consuming tasks that business owners regret attempting to do themselves is the creative work. That’s why hiring a professional graphic designer for branding, marketing and website design is so rewarding. At 2nd Story we will work with you to make your vision come to life.
