Do you already have a list of things you want to accomplish for your business next year? It’s easy to come up with resolutions for the incoming year – the hard part is actually getting them done.
Work productivity can be affected by different factors, so it is important for entrepreneurs to have a solid plan of approach to maintain high productivity levels in the workplace.
Here are three ways to get into the right mindset for top productivity in 2016.
Time is gold – all business owners are aware of this. If you are not in the habit of creating a schedule, or are having difficulty sticking to one, make it your New Year’s resolution to change. Sticking to your schedule is a MUST, regardless if it’s during meetings, answering emails, or even taking breaks. Doing so would help keep you moving throughout the day and possibly completing tasks earlier than expected.
Set time for email
How many emails do you receive in a day? It can be a big time drain if you stop what you’re doing and respond each time another email arrives. Don’t let emails pull you away from a task and reserve time to tackle them later instead. Try a half hour for emails in the morning and another half hour for it at the end of your day and see how that works for you.
Utilise the phone
Contrary to how you ought to handle your emails, phone calls deserve your time and attention. Why? Because if a person took the time and effort in giving you a ring instead of sending you an email, it signifies a greater sense of urgency. To save time, consider getting a virtual receptionist to take your calls for you and to take messages when you’re busy, but forward the more urgent ones and those you have to give a return call ASAP.
Increase your productivity this 2016 by finding a rhythm that works for you and sticking to it for the rest of the year. Good luck!
