Many entrepreneurs feel the pressure of too many tasks and too little time. Trying to keep things in perspective can be a challenge. It often happens that less important activities such as like checking emails and responding to customer eat up much of your time and push out your bigger goals. If this happens, your company can lose its way. You can feel like you’re constantly behind schedule and chasing your goals.
Adam Toren, of Young Entrepreneur describes in 6 Essential Time Savers for Overworked Young Entrepreneurs some approaches that can help entrepreneurs get more done on a daily basis
- Plan, then attack – Take ten to fifteen minutes to plan. The list of things to accomplish need to be clearly thought out, prioritized every day. This can be done first thing in the morning or the previous day.
- Bundle responsibilities – Basically multi-task. Keep a list of tasks to accomplish. Take one day per week to run multiple errands such as banking and supply replenishment.
- Use delivery services – UPS, FedEx and USPS will pick up as well as deliver. Also, many office supply stores will deliver as well. You can save time as well as gas money.
- Ask for help – Sometimes friends and family can join in an effort to accomplish a time-consuming yet simple project. If you need to send out orders or a massive communication effort, make it fun with those you know.
