Do you feel like you’re constantly busy but rarely getting things accomplished?
Do you feel like your routine has become dull?
Don’t be busy, be productive.
Here are three methods I use that help me stay on track:
>> No. 1 Using Online Tools
Technology, or as I like to call them ‘Online Tools’ have honestly been a lifesaver for me!
Although manual tasks done by real people can be apart of your business, I’m all for using online tools when it makes sense.
Having online tools have helped me stay organized, save time and scale my business.
Have you seen my post about picking tools that work for you?
If not, click here to read “A System About Picking A System.”
Here are a few tools that I use in my own business systems that have helped take my business to the next level:
Google Drive is an easy way to save all your files into one place. You can get access to photos, videos, files and more.
Infusionsoft is an effective way to offer e-mail marketing, marketing automation and build customer relationships.
Leadpages helps you with lead generation and collect email subscribers. It’s a great tool to help you grow your business.
I’m all about systems (which I’m sure you already know!) Trello has been the key to my organization throughout the years.
Without systems in place, you have to work twice as hard to make twice the revenue.
Let’s be real, you don’t have the time for that (because who does?)
Using online tools, or systems, will save you time and automate your business.
>> No. 2 Limit Time You Spend on Tasks
Tracking the amount of time you spend on certain tasks could put into perspective activities you can cut out of your day.
Sometimes we spend too much time on the wrong things and not enough time on the right things.
I like to follow the “do, ditch, delegate” rule.
What you don’t do is equally as valuable as what you spend your time doing.
Another tip: if the task only takes you a few minutes to complete get it out of the way, instead of saving it for later.
>> No. 3 Set Goals
When it comes your business, the first thing you should think about is what goals you wish to accomplish in the future- whether it be over the next month, year or even five years.
Having a vision, setting short-term (and long-term) goals and staying focused will help you stay on track to build a successful business.
Actions follow thoughts. If you’re thoughts are productive, inspirational and focused then you’re on the right track to accomplishing your goals.
Short-term goals will encourage you to stay on track to meet target deadlines.
Being able to check off little goals on the way to accomplishing larger ones will help maintain productivity.
I like to take my annual goal and divide it into quarters and then months to track it.
