Do you need a digital detox? If you pick up your phone several times every hour or feel lost when you don’t have it, you probably do.
Are you experiencing small business productivity problems? Running a business, leading a team, and accomplishing priorities can be difficult.
As a small business owner, you do a lot, don’t you? You vet ideas, meet with your team, and seek ways to improve your product or service in addition to all the daily tasks you have on your list. If you’re floundering and struggling with productivity problems or know someone who is, know that you’re not alone. It’s not uncommon.
Today’s post is all about one of the main reasons small business owners (especially those leading a team) struggle to improve their productivity — and a simple tool they can use to fix it for good.
Recently, I’ve been multitasking. It’s not as bad as you think — it’s good multitasking. Listening to productivity and small business podcasts have been high on my annual goal list, so I decided to give my brain a workout while I’m on the treadmill. Two tasks. One time block.
Learning should be a priority for all business owners as it allows you to grow or even to pivot when necessary. Of course, time is not always on your side, especially for startups and solopreneurs. So, it’s helpful to connect priority tasks to blocks of time you already have carved out in our day — like during your commute, while you’re in a waiting room (think doctor’s office), during your lunch break, or even while you’re exercising.
