5. Manage your technology:
Technology can be a blessing and a curse.
Technology can increase your productivity by allowing you to manage your communications, to-do-lists, tack activities and more. However, technology can be a time waster if you are constantly switching tools, investigating new technology or more. Source information on technology from others to identify which tools might in fact help you remain productive.
6. Take back your time:
Treat your time like your money, save it and invest it wisely.
When you evaluate the time you are spending on various task throughout your day you increase your understanding of where your time is going. Consider time spent in tasks that do not directly lead to your end goals as costs or liabilities and then determine what your time is worth doing. Learn to say no to the things that interfere with your priorities.
7. Share the workload:
Bring on board temporary help at home or at work and identify what tasks you can delegate.
It may be your business but you cannot always do it all. Select others’ who are more skilled or have expertise in an area, find a mentor, barter services with someone else and learn to trust others to do what is needed.
You do not have to make all of these changes at once. Select one productivity tip to implement each week or even once a month. Don’t forget to share the workload in making a change from busy to productive.
