To be successful entrepreneur you don’t have time to laze around. If you do, you won’t catch up to other successful entrepreneurs. Remember that when you see a successful entrepreneur, you don’t really know the behind the scene. They might have gone through difficult times before reaching success they are enjoying now. One of the most important ingredients to become success in business and life in general is time management.
How to optimize your time daily
It is essential to build positive and productive entrepreneurial energy to reach success. It is something you have to do daily because success itself cannot be reach overnight. Hence, it is best to practice time management. Here are tips you can consider to optimize your time and become more productive:
Put your phone on silent especially when you are doing your task. You can turn off notifications so you won’t be easily distracted during work. You can turn off social media or email notification for a while. Avoid checking your phone too frequent in a day. You can schedule email-checking for a few times a day.
It is best to plan your own day-to day schedule. Hence, you know what to do on daily basis. You won’t spend your time thinking of what to do next after finishing one task. You can make the plan based on the level of priority. Prioritized from the most important to the least so you know what to do first. Make sure to include meeting in your list so you won’t have a meeting without agenda that can rob your time.
When you conduct a meeting with your team, you can set a given time for each to speak. For example, you limit speaking time to two minutes long. Hence, you and your team members will speak efficiently and avoid ranting. This time-setting can also help optimize the meeting so everything can run smoothly.
Remember to take break between tasks. Optimizing your time doesn’t mean you keep working without rest. Some breaks here and there are necessary to keep you focused. It is recommended to take a break after working for 90 minutes. It helps keep your brain fresh/ you can also take a day break in a week so you won’t get easily burnout.
If you don’t understand a thing, you can ask for help from your team instead of wasting time figuring things out all day long. Asking question will be more productive because even if you don’t get the answer right away, you or your team members can find it later. It also means that you don’t have to do everything on your own. Delegate the tasks your team members can handle.
Avoid procrastination by getting inspiration instead of waiting for it to come. Also, it is highly recommended to practice healthy habits built with positive energy. Living healthily and positively will help keep negative influences at bay.
