In my last post, I shared with you some tips to get more time from the time you have. Here are a few more ideas to help:
Some tasks that you do probably are tasks you could actually save time (and money) by buying someone else’s time. To find out, you need to know your hourly rate then compare it to the average hourly rate for the task at hand.
For example, let’s say your hourly rate is $200. The average house cleaner is $30 per hour. So it just doesn’t make sense for you to clean your home. Hire someone else to do it and save your time for more profitable endeavors.
2) Your clock is ticking.
We all have a peak times of day when our energy is at its highest. For me, mornings are best. So I try to make sure my intense tasks, such as writing are done in the morning. Determine which time of day is your peak performance time and plan your work accordingly. Keep meetings and routine tasks for other parts of the day when you have the choice.
3) Chunk it down for into bite size snacks.
How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time, of course. And that’s how you should look at big projects. Break it down into manageable pieces, then work on one piece at a time. In addition, breaking up large tasks into smaller ones can give you a greater sense of satisfaction and this can keep you motivated to the end.
4) Avoid your procrastination triggers.
Once you recognize that you are procrastinating, the next step is to begin overcoming this time-wasting habit. When I find myself refreshing Facebook more than twice, I realize, I am in procrastination mode. and the only way to stop it is to turn off Facebook and look at the tasks to be done.
5) Successes need to be celebrated.
As an entrepreneur, our to-do list is never complete. There will always be more. One of the problems with a hectic life is that you can be so busy that you fail to notice the completion of a major piece of work. You just move on to the next job without celebrating your previous success. This failure leads to focusing on what is still left undone instead of enjoying what has already been accomplished. Set up a reward system for yourself that serves as both a motivator to get certain difficult tasks done and an acknowledgment that you are making effective use of your time. Be it a bubble bath, two chapters in your new book, or a phone call to a friend, acknowledge your accomplishment by rewarding yourself.
