3 Quick Tips to Help You Get More Done
Who doesn’t want to get more done? We all get 24 hours in a day, and it seems like it’s never enough time. Use these 3 quick tips to increase your productivity and tackle that to-do list.
Make a Plan Every Day
It may seem like it will take you more time than it’s worth, but making a plan every day is one of the keys to getting more done. Take a few minutes each morning and think about what you need to accomplish during the course of your day. Just write everything down as it comes to you. Then, go back and prioritize. Star by choosing three things that absolutely must get done. Put a star by those. Those are the three items you should work on first. As an added bonus tip, start with your most difficult tasks first. It may cause a little bit of dread (at first), but once you’ve completed your hardest tasks, the rest of your day will feel even more productive.
Making a plan works because you’re able to monitor what you need to do and take action to get it done. You won’t waste as much time trying to determine what you should be doing throughout the course of your day. Your plan doesn’t have to be elaborate or timed to the minute. It just needs to be something you can work from in order to be productive.
Yes, really. Consider how often you’ve tried to remember a name of a show, person, or song, but when you’re trying to remember, you can’t do it. It’s on the tip of your tongue, but you can’t recall. Then, you do something totally unrelated and the answer you were working so hard to remember suddenly comes. When you schedule downtime (and take it), you’ll be more productive. Why? Because you’ll be refreshed and energized. It gives your brain time to process and decompress. You may notice that you have more ideas and have a renewed passion for your business.
Master the Art of Delegation
When you own a business, you wear many hats. You handle customer service, marketing, providing services, prospecting, accounts receivable, and whatever else needs to be done in your business. To get more done, you should master the art of delegation. It can be hard for business owners to allow someone else to take over any part of their business, but it’s essential for growth.
