7 FAB IDEAS FOR INCREASED PRODUCTIVITY To Rock Your Business!

 

Here are 7 fab ideas for increasing your productivity, saving time and making the most of your productivity strategy.

Rock your Business!

  1. Start with the Most Important Productivity Strategy

Before installing any productivity app, tool or resource, first determine which part of your business you need to strategize, prioritize and systematize. Look for the most:

  • Time-consuming part of your business
  • Energy-draining tasks of your business
  • Area of your business where you lose the most money
  • Area of your business that makes you feel as if you’ve wasted hours

Start with a productivity tool that takes care of the most urgent areas—be that scheduling, customer support, billing or all of the above—and fit your solution to meet that need with as few tools—or steps—as possible.

  1. Stop the Endless Cycle

Do you buy course after course, promising yourself you’re going to “master” an area of your business that is not second nature to you? Do you have courses and eBooks on your computer that you’ve never completed (or perhaps never even started?)

These are big clues to your ‘weak’ areas—the ones you should waste no more time on, but immediately outsource or automate.

  1. Learn to be Mindful and In the Moment

If you’ve made a commitment to be more aware of your business overview and vanquish self-sabotaging habits, then pay attention to that commitment. If you find yourself doing time-waster tasks on autopilot, or spending hours trying to tweak one headline, or letting time slip away on Facebook—stop. Take frequent reality checks during the day. Get up from your computer, and take a moment to appreciate the weather outside (bad or good); the comforts of your office; even the fact that you are alive and breathing.

Doing this can help you break bad habits—as long as you make this your new habit!

  1. Underestimate on Purpose

Perfectionists have a lot of bad habits. The worst one? Being a perfectionist! Stop! Keep your to-do list essentials simple: No more than three key tasks per day. Then time those three things; at least for a few weeks.

After you’ve concluded this experiment, start allotting a time frame to each task, based on the actual time-frames.

And if something takes too long? Automate or outsource!

  1. Sync Your To-do List with Your Scheduling Software or Calendar

Reserve some appointment slots for yourself, to accomplish tasks you have to do yourself and for self-care.

  1. Hire a Coach

Solopreneurs and small biz owners often just can’t see the forest for the trees.

Invest in coaching for yourself, zeroing in on problem areas, to increase your productivity in areas you didn’t even realize were problems.

  1. Create Templates and Checklists for Recurring Tasks

Checklists and templates provide a quick way to make sure you create consistency in your content and communications.

They also save time, and allow you to hand off completion to assistants.

Productivity is really just another way to make sure your quality of life—as well as your business—rocks. Being truly productive keeps you energized, inspired and heading straight towards your dreams.

Your #1 Tip To Get It ALL Done.

Want more productivity?

If you want to get it ALL done, then this Tip holds the keys you need to succeed.

#1 Productivity Tip : Understand The Difference Between Urgent And Important.

The important thing for you to understand with this, is that most people focus on the urgent stuff, so they never get anything important done.

If you constantly stay in “urgent” mode you’ll be engaged in activity all the time and feel like you’re busy, but you’re actually just spinning your wheels, like the hamster in the cage.

This is so important for your success because most people stay permanently stuck in “urgent” mode through the whole day. If you stay stuck in “BUSY” and “URGENT” mode, you will constantly be stressed and never get anything done. And, you’ll be exhausted, anxious and depressed because you didn’t accomplish anything meaningful during the day. This will go on and on, you wake up again tomorrow to repeat the process.

To get the important stuff done, you need to:

  • Make a list of all the “stuff” you need to get done
  • Ask yourself a question about each item on the list: “If I don’t do this today, what happens?” If the answer is some short term pain, then it’s probably urgent.
  • Ask yourself another question about each item on the list: “If I don’t do this today, what happens 6 months from today? A year from today? 5 years from today?” If the answer is long term pain or failure, then it’s probably important.

So, do you have to choose between the two and only do one? No! Just make time in your day for BOTH urgent and important tasks. Schedule them and get them done!
