Here are some top tips for managing your time in the day to make sure you are focussed:
- Time Blocking
This is where you allocate yourself main tasks that you need to focus on for your small business whether this be client work, administration, business growth or accounting. Then place these titles over your day, when do you want to focus on each of these tasks.
- List Writing
Identifying the priority tasks for the day and then using these to schedule what must be done, what is good to get done and what can be skipped if necessary, allows you to orient your day to make sure you complete all necessary tasks.
- Goal Setting
The best way to ensure nothing eats into your spare time is to have clear concise goals that you want your small business to achieve this year and this month! By doing this you can clarify what you are aiming towards and schedule your time better.
