As an entrepreneur, do you find that there are never enough hours in the day? You’re not alone, it’s a problem that affects all business people at some point, especially when their enterprise is in its infancy. There are only so many hours in a day, of course, but by using those hours smarter you can find that you get much more done. A recent article in Entrepreneur magazine revealed three ways to maximise your time. Here, Angel Business Suite review the article, and look at how it can help businesses on the road to success.
“An entrepreneur has to have many skills, from sales to creative thinking, and from accounting to design”, said the operations manager of Angel Business Suite. “Time management is a skill that’s equally as important. When an entrepreneur uses their time wisely and efficiently, they’ll be able to get more done, and being more productive will lead to greater profits.”
Effective time management is, in essence, the ability to know what you want to do, and when you’ll do it. Some people find this easier than others, especially when they’re just one person trying to juggle all aspects of their business. The first tip the article gives is to have a clear purpose. When we have a defined goal that we’re trying to achieve, we feel more motivated, and ready to go that extra mile. Thinking about why you’re in business, and what you want to achieve from it, can help you defeat the prevarication that can otherwise overcome people.
The second step to becoming time-wise is to make two lists every day. On one list, write down the important things, and on the other the urgent tasks. Concentrate on the things that are truly important, and don’t worry if urgent tasks have to be carried over onto the next day. The third tip the article gives is to be predictable, by which they mean methodical. Have a set time every day when you check your emails, or when you take a break. This means that when emergencies arise, you’ll know exactly when and how you can fit them into your schedule.
“There are some excellent tips in this article, especially the importance of being regimented and methodical”, said Angel Business Suite’s operations manager. “Your office space plays a big part in this. Having a smart, well planned, office with everything you need right to hand, can save you considerable time every day, allowing you more hours to build your business.”
