As you know there never seems to be enough time in the day to get done all you need to.
The days can feel like they are getting shorter and the weeks can feel like they are running away!
You can’t stop time but you can find ways to use it more effectively to get done the critical activities you need to move your business forward and make more time to relax and unwind.
If you don’t have enough time I’m sure one, if not more of these activities are sucking up your attention, energy and time.
Here are what I think are the Top 4 Biggest Time Suckers you face on a daily basis as an entrepreneur.
1.You don’t have a daily game plan
You have in your mind a mountain of tasks and activities you need to get completed today, but you haven’t written down your top 3 most important tasks for today.
It’s like swimming in the deep blue sea with no life jacket.
You’re going to sink without a daily plan and get overwhelmed churning away at thoughts of the 101 things you need to do.
You don’t need to do it all today.
If you worked for 24 hours straight you still wouldn’t get it all done in a day, so stop trying and beating yourself up in the process.
My top tip
Just write down your top 3 goals for today and stick to it.
This will create momentum and keep you focused.
Once completed at the end of the day you can tick them off and you’ll feel good.
2. You spend way too much time checking your emails
Emails are the biggest time suckers as your inbox becomes a crowded marketplace full of people sales messages and alerts, only a few have any value to actually help you.
The world won’t end if you stop checking them every hour.
What are you hoping to receive in your email today that makes it so exciting?
An email confirming you’ve won the lottery or a luxury holiday? That would be great but unlikely to happen.
Emails have been one of my biggest time suckers in the past and I now I manage them by only checking them once, maximum twice a day.
My Top Tip
I recommend checking them in the afternoon once you have worked on some of your most important tasks to avoid distractions.
3. Playing the Social media Game
Every day you will see an advert or an email from an internet marketer selling you their dream and how they have this amazing life from building an online business and social media is the answer to all your hopes and dreams.
Is it really?
I’m sure at some point you may have spent hundreds of hours trying to work out how to get customers on social media but it has not worked and just wasted your time.
Don’t get sucked into other people’s agenda’s.
You have your own path and play the most important role in shaping your own destiny.
You could sit all day watching webinars or buy a bunch of online products and programmes from internet marketers claiming it’s changed their life and given them the financial freedom to spend time with their family and work 5 hours a week…
These people tell you what they think you need to hear and why you should follow their programme but very rarely do they actually show you step by step how to do it once you have invested with them.
Social media marketing is just one tactic and takes time to see results with a strategy. You could spend as little as 2 hours a week and get results.
I’m sure you love multi-tasking as you think it help you get things done quicker but honestly it doesn’t work!
Every activity takes double the time to complete as your focus and concentration get diluted.
My top tip
Get clear on what you want to achieve and make it manageable.
You will feel more energised and get more done in less time.
Time you can spend having more fun…yay!
