Running a successful business is exactly that, running it and sometimes checking tasks on a list takes a toll on your productivity. You work as hard as you do, but with no new results….so where could you be going wrong? Hard work is an entrepreneur’s best tool, but eventually smart work is what really pays off, because the life of a girl boss is constantly on the move, with new things to do and new goals to accomplish. So what’s a girl to do? Well good news ladies, because we have 5 tips for lady bosses to increase their productivity, so read on!
Early to Bed, Early to Rise
Hitting snooze on the alarm is very tempting, those few extra minutes of sleep (which can easily turn into an hour…) seem like they could do magic for you; but you’re the boss, and waking up early and getting to work before anyone else can really set the tone for the rest of your day. Get a few minutes of extra reading done, really zero down on your tasks or just get some minutes of zen away from the world. The rest of your work day will be better for it.
The Most Difficult First
Have you been dreading doing something and putting it off for later? Hate to break it to you ladies, but getting the most difficult chore out of the way first, is the best way to get rid of it. You will be able to relax your mind, because the thought of doing it won’t nag you the entire work day. Plus other lesser difficult tasks, that don’t take much of your time will go by in the blink of an eye, giving you time to relax.
Jack of All, Master of None
Yes women have the ability to handle multiple tasks at once, but multitasking may not be all that it has been made to be. Doing too many things at once, will split your attention, and none of the tasks at hand will be done with as much focus as they should be. So, quit multitasking and one task at time to complete. You will find, your work being done faster and better.
Breaks are The Best Part about Working
We know ladies, that working hard is what’s going to get your business where you want it to, but working all the time might not. Working all day, every day may seem like a good idea now, but in the long run it will lead to burn out, and besides you, your business will also end up suffering. So for the greater good, step out every now and then, take a break, short one, but do it nevertheless; you’ll thank us for it.
Nobody is Perfect
Striving for perfection is every girl boss’ goal, but chasing perfection is the mistake they make. Every thing, every task that is done, in an entrepreneur’s mind can be done better and that illusion of perfection is what wastes too much of your time; every time you get done with something, you’ll inevitably feel you could have done it better, it could have been closer to perfection. Reality check though- nothing and nobody is perfect. Spending an unnecessary amount of time on one task that was over a while ago will do you and your business no good.
So, there you have it ladies, 5 tips for lady bosses to increase their productivity. Spread the word around, and succeed with your fellow girl bosses!
