Time Management in Business
Time management is so important in everything you do, not just in business. Do you need to manage your time better and be more productive? Time management is crucial when running a business. It is something that will run away from you and you’ll struggle to play catch up. Trust me, i know this all too well. As i sit and write this, i have both kids in holiday club and i made a list of everything i needed to get done today. During the summer with both kids at home, running a business is far from easy. Also with clubs being so expensive, they only go in once a week at most. I often lag behind and struggle to complete tasks.
How i managed my time today:
Here is what my lists usually look like. And they don’t consist of me checking my email every 10 minutes and sitting on Facebook all day (sorry to say)
- Design 10 graphics for a clients twitter account
- Check email (once)
- Write blog for client
- Write my own blog (this one)
- Schedule clients Facebook posts for the next 3 days
- Create graphics for my business
- Schedule my one posts for the next 3 days (yet to be done)
You get the picture right? I enjoy ticking off my tasks and seeing them completed. I’m old fashioned and like a paper and pen diary. I put everything in there that needs to get done and it pretty much always gets done when i schedule my time.
Time Management and Blocking Time Slots
This is another thing i do, i block time for each client and my business. So today i worked on one clients graphics and scheduled for their Facebook page, i wrote this blog and one other, i am yet to check emails and i have dealt with a bunch of queries for a client. I time blocked all this and i have got a ton of stuff done. The kids are back at school after being off for 7 weeks over summer, so i finally have a lot more hours in my week, so time management is far easier.
