Success is the result of a series of small, incremental steps. Everything has to start somewhere.
If your not happy with the productivity of your business and the thought of making a change seems overwhelming, start small. How do you improve your productivity? Make one change. Once you accomplish one small task toward your overall goal; everything will feel less daunting.
Here are 3 recommendations to improve productivity:
- Build a better network
- Be more productive
- Set aside blocks of time
Spend 20 minutes a day making connections. Arrange a quick cup of coffee with a strategic alliance. Pick people on LinkedIn to connect with, and then communicate with them at a later date. Send an email or a note to one of your contacts recognizing their recent success or achievement. Contact a supplier you are happy with and compliment their services.
Just make sure your 20 minutes are focused entirely on giving, not receiving. Then you’ll be on the road to creating real and lasting connections.
Set aside blocks of time to respond to incoming email rather than glancing at your inbox every five seconds. Review your emails first thing in the morning, again at noon and then at 5pm. You’ll be surprised at how many non-urgent emails you receive vs. those you must respond to in a timely fashion.
Pick one task or project to see through to the end of the day.
Want to take your business to the next level but the day to day grind doesn’t allow the time? Make time. Set aside blocks of time where you simply just take the time to work on your business. Start small. Arrange a lunch meeting with an alliance. Brainstorm big picture ideas in the morning when you have your coffee. Then block out larger blocks of time to plan.
Contact helpful people who can assist you in the planning process. Reach out to your team, find a business consultant, ask your accountant, meet with your family…who ever can brainstorm with you and help you plan ask to lend a hand.
Whatever it is that you want to accomplish, no matter how impossible it seems to accomplish, just pick one thing and start doing it.
You’ll be that much closer to success–and in the meantime you’ll feel a lot better about yourself.
