What can you do to get things done, done well and on time with greater ease? Here are some good starting points:
Delegate A bit time consuming up front, but a better long-term solution. A solopreneur client, who hates accounting, figured that if she hired a bookkeeper once a month for a nominal fee, it would be one big ugly task off her plate. Instead of suffering with the bookkeeping, she uses those 2-3 hours to do what she does best and covers the bookkeeper’s fee 5 times over.
Best time of day Deep work requires prime time focus and concentration. You’ll get through those tasks faster and with greater accuracy at a time that is optimal for your focus and energy level. Use low energy time for mindless work like laundry or house cleaning.
Assess the task Before jumping feet first into a task, look it over and get an idea how involved the task will be. When’s the deadline? Will you need assistance, resources or a location more conducive for working on it? Do you need to break it up into chunks and spread it out over time? You may also find that the task will take less time than you imagined!
