Any business owner will tell you that owning a business is a daunting task. Problems seem to arise all the time and it’s like raising a child. Here are some tips anyone can use to improve their businesses (or if you don’t own a business, these can also be applied to your work and personal life.)
- Focus on the important things. Multitasking doesn’t work for everyone. It’s easy to lose track of what’s important and by the time you realize it, it’s already too late.
- Organize. Being organized will decrease the time you spend looking for that file you were sure that you left underneath your stapler and increase the time that you can focus on more important tasks.
- Limit your work starting routine. Spend no more time than you need to prepare for your day. You’re most productive at the beginning of the day, so use your time wisely.
- Write to do lists. Write down current and long‐term tasks, and check them off as you complete them.
- Take a moment to assess the day’s emotional challenges. Take a deep breath. All those tough and boring tasks will be over soon.
- Visualize your day. Visualize how you want the day to go and see yourself completing all that you set out to do.
