Time Management – How Efficient Are You?

Using your time effectively is always important in business. Work in a relaxed way and tap into your natural flow and you will get more done in less time and enjoy what you are doing.

When I was working in a small office, we sometimes had youngsters with us on work experience. On one occasion we were finding a new recruit suitable jobs. As I am very slow typing on a computer and do not touch type, I suggested passing over a list of many pages I was imputing for a new project.

Now the Boss seemed to think this was a good idea, however every time I passed over the list, to our recruit, when she was looking for something to do, the Boss found her something else to do instead!

Eventually the list was completed, but how efficient are you with your time? Now my ability was in sales, not imputing a list of 12 pages of future clients and their details into a computer system.

Who might help you?

It’s great to learn new skills for your business like understanding and operating word press to build a website, or learning to write effective copy for your sales pages. However sometimes your time is better spent doing the things you are good at and finding someone to do other jobs. For example Fiverr.com has people waiting to offer various services, for a fiver. Or Elance.com is another good source of willing helpers who will quote for various jobs and free your time.

Maybe you have a relative who is expert in a particular field, who would be willing to help. Now youngsters are very computer literate and happy to earn a few pounds.

Of course the question is are you cash rich or time rich, this will have to be taken into account.

Why regular time slots make a difference.

It is important when building a business, or learning any skill, to achieve something every day towards your goal, however small. This keeps it in the forefront of your mind. It keeps the momentum going for fast progress and is better than occasional long sessions. This way you are likely to remember your newly learned skills better, or you may forget what you have learned, become frustrated, lose confidence and interest in your new project.

It is very rewarding to see regular progress and feel excited by your achievements, even if they are small to begin with. I would like to wish you success and steady progress in your new venture. Do congratulate yourself, many people don’t even start, it always remains a dream!
