Productivity Hacks For Greater Efficiency & Growth
- Always Prioritize
Setting priorities are important for business efficiency. It enables you to make the right choice and save time. Learn to prioritize your time, goals, and daily activities. Ensure that you prioritize essential activities such as training for your team members, meeting with your partners and customers, and following up on your prospects. The truth is that you have to learn to prioritize even while multitasking. There will always be tasks to complete. You may never be able to finish these tasks; however, your productivity level will increase exponentially when you order your work by priority levels.
2. Time management
Time is a crucial element when running a business, and every minute or second counts. Time management is critical to business growth and productivity. One of the most effective time management strategies is Steven Covey’s Four Quadrants of time management. These quadrants focus on identifying the most important activities. The four quadrants require you to rank activities by the following:
- Urgent and important
- Urgent and unimportant
- Important and not urgent
- Not important and not urgent
3. Avoid Procrastination
Procrastination is when you choose to do something else other than the initial task you had set out to do. Procrastination often involves ignoring an unpleasant but more critical task to enjoy comfort or do things that are less difficult. Procrastination will reduce your productivity and cause you to miss important goals.
4. Recruit the Best Talent
People are pillars for your businesses. They complete projects, and this leads to the company’s growth. As a leader, it's important to spend more time acquiring and keeping the best people in your team. This makes sure that you are not tempted to micro-manage people. While it is advisable that you invest in people, ensure that you invest in people who support your dreams and visions. Do these people's dreams align with yours? Then you are on the right track.
5. Learn to say No
Saying No to speaking engagements and meetings is not entirely wrong. It is pivotal to prioritize your personal development over other things that may require more time than you have. Attending multiple meetings at the expense of your growth is detrimental because you will not have time to focus on what’s truly important.
