Reacting vs. Scheduling
If you are a business owner who frequently has to drop the task at hand when reacting to the latest emergency, you know that using this approach can be exhausting and overwhelming.
This is a common problem, especially for those who wear all the hats in their business and it can be a challenge for some to find the time to put better systems in place.
However, setting aside time in your schedule to work on systematizing your business should be part of your regular activities. It’s absolutely necessary in order to foster growth and increase productivity and profitability.
Create a Workflow System
A good place to start is to make a list of your most important daily functions. For example, customer intake, scheduling, invoicing, communications with customers, etc. From there, you can create an action plan to systematize functions over a period of time.
Ultimately, having the right workflow systems in place will allow you to run your business more proactively, so you can use your time, money and resources effectively.
Action for the week: Schedule one hour in your calendar to create an action plan. Set a due date for the daily function you think will have the highest impact, if systematized.
