3 tips to work smarter and not harder.

December 18, 2017


The more efficient you can be in running your business, the more time you have for other important tasks.

1. PLAN

This should be the first thing you do at the start of the day. Start by writing down all the things you need to get done. Break the bigger and more complicated tasks into their component pieces so they’re more achievable and less intimidating. Now number them in order of priority. Try to get more of the unpleasant tasks out of the way first – it will make the rest of the day seem easier. Keep the list somewhere visible so you can regularly check it throughout the day and cross off the tasks.

2. OUTSOURCE

Virtual assistants are perfect to perform administrative tasks (like answering emails, typing documents up, researching, posting on social media etc) as needed, so you only pay for what you use. Once you’ve found an assistant online that you like the look of, try them out with a couple of small jobs to see how they go

3. USE DOWNTIME

As part of your daily planning process, make a list of small tasks that you can do at any time. These might be things like phoning back some clients, ordering stationary, finalising a quote or paying a bill. Then when you’ve got a spare five minutes, whether it’s waiting for someone to ring you back or for a client to arrive, you can tackle one of these tasks and get them out of the way.
