Are You Managing Your Time Effectively?

So, your business is growing, and it is starting to feel like you’re spinning plates. A bit of a catch 22 scenario as you know you have to work on creating your content or packages, editing video content, or going here and there to follow up on client leads?

I find that by identifying the most pressing tasks and knowing the time I have available each day allows the ability to prioritise work better and remove any sense of pressure.

Five-Time Management Tips to Help Prioritise Workflow

Prioritise workload – By the level of importance, is it urgent? Do you have a precise and tight deadline? These are the tasks to add to the calendar as a priority. Once identified time can be assigned to crack on with the other, less time-critical tasks.

Delegate it – Do you have to be doing every single task alone? Are there others in your team that you could hand over some of the smaller, more time consuming administrative or social media tasks to allow you to crack on with the more significant deadlines?

Template it – Do you find yourself writing the same emails, or copy over and over again? Have you considered creating templates? Even better, put that template into an automated process – perhaps within your CRM system may have a function to automate your responses? There are smart, vast tools and tags available within some software that can extract the variable data such as; client names, addresses, meeting dates/times if needed for confirming appointments etc. save yourself-time and simplify the process.

Ask yourself – Is this task urgent? Try to establish clear deadlines for each new request when reaching capacity. Knowing our timeframes against the pockets of time we have available to crack on with them allows us to prioritise work better and more effectively as opposed to trying to resolve every new request that comes in instantly.

Don’t be afraid to say no! Sometimes we really can’t do it all. Should saying yes to a project/task mean you’re going to put massive pressure on yourself when you’re already stacked can be detrimental for both parties.
