Save Your Business From Time Wasters

556656621_ba9e8c870fWith piles and piles of projects to complete and the time flying away relentlessly, it’s crucial to stop wasting precious minutes, and get the work done. Time is the only non-renewable resource you have, and you need to manage it wisely if you want your business to grow by leaps and bounds.

Here are five tips to help you stay on track and accomplish more in less time…

Keep your impulse to constantly check your email box and your social media sites under control
Don’t start your day by checking emails and hanging out on social media sites – a couple of hours will disappear in the blink of an eye. Instead, use those first hours in the morning, when you’re well rested and clearheaded, for your most productive work – for the income generating activities. Then, decide upon the number of times, and the exact times of the day you’ll open your email box. When you do, reply immediately, don’t make it another task on your to-do list. Follow the same principle on your social media sites – deliberately choose when and for how long you’ll be logged in, and when you are, actively interact with other people, making the most of every moment you’re there.

Use voicemail
A phone ringing all day long can be incredibly disturbing and harmful for your business, since you’ll find it impossible to get any concentrated work completed. To keep your sanity intact, put the voicemail to good use. Record a professional message, explaining when you can be reached, or when will you call back. Alternatively, hire an assistant to handle your phone calls. The key thing is to regain control of your time by eliminating constant phone interruptions.

Switch off the television – or better yet, don’t even turn it on
You might think that television just keeps you company, and is in fact responsible for your creative mood, but the truth is that it’s only slowing you down. Sure, many great ideas can be triggered while watching a movie or a show – however, if you’re trying to finish a project that no longer involves general brainstorming, having the TV turned on might only be responsible for a huge delay in your working schedule.

Reduce in-person interruptions to a minimum
While you adore your family and friends, make sure to let them know when you’re in business mode, and kindly ask them not to disturb you, except in case of an emergency. According to statistics, a single interruption causes – on average – a twenty-minute setback, so try to ensure yourself a peaceful working environment. The more focused you can get, the sooner your business day can be over, allowing you plenty of time to dedicate to your loved ones.

Adopt the right mindset
You might notice that if you’re feeling overwhelmed, or you’re nervous about the outcome of a business project, it’s more difficult to fully immerse yourself in new and half-completed work that still needs your attention. So, in the most frenetic moments, calm down, and cheer yourself up. A success-oriented mindset will save you from panicking and losing invaluable hours you’d waste, if you gave in to fear and confusion.
