Try to prioritise the most important tasks for the day and make sure they are completed.
Small business owners often complain that there are simply not enough hours in the day. Despite rushing around working on various tasks, at the end of it all they find that they actually accomplished very little. The solution for these individuals is to develop their time management skills.
If you face the same problem, the first step is to work out where you are wasting time. Try keeping track of how much time you are spending on each activity. At the end of a week you will be able to see how much time you are wasting on pointless endeavours.
Now that you are aware of how much time you are wasting, you should begin setting time management goals. For example, try to go for a whole week without accepting personal phone calls during the workday and measure how much extra work you are able to complete. If you are pleased with the result, try to cut out personal phone calls altogether.
The next step is to start developing a time management plan for your small business. Be ruthless about the unimportant tasks and consider outsourcing or ignoring them altogether. You can keep track of your new schedule by using WinWeb’s Online Calendar.
