Simple productivity hacks for business owners and managers
Business owners and managers are the backbone of any company because you hold all of the pieces together. If you fall apart, it could result in a domino effect for your business. There are many ways that successful owners and managers stay more productive, including outsourcing a commercial property maintenance team to do all of the dirty work. But the buck doesn’t end there. Here are some simple productivity hacks that any business person can handle.
Limit email time
Current research has shown that the average person spends at least 11 hours per week on email. Whether you’re a small business owner or part of a corporation, being inundated with emails is normal. It’s up to you to limit your time on checking and responding. Need help organising them? There are apps for that!
Mute your notifications
How many of us can say that we’ve never stopped ourselves in the middle of a conversation or project to grab our phones when we receive a notification? Not only is this habit distracting, but it’s also counterproductive. Your mind and body immediately jump out of concentration mode when you react to your phone’s buzz. Instead, set aside time every hour to check notifications.
Optimise your to do list
One way of optimising your to do list is to include how long you plan to work on each item. For example, you may estimate that placing orders could take approximately two hours, morning tea: 45 minutes, answering emails: 1 hour, meeting with a new member: 1.5 hours. Make sure you adhere to your time frame you have for each item. And don’t forget to add in some “you” time, like taking a walk or getting a massage.
One of the most popular ways of outsourcing is to hire a commercial property maintenance team, like Collective Maintenance Services. We handle everything from landscaping, handyman repairs, plumbing, electrical work, carpentry, cleaning and more. Not only do we work with your budget and around your business hours, but we also have 24/7 call-outs for emergencies.
