Tips to Getting Things Done In Your Business

As I started a blog earlier (and discarded it completely), I realized something. Though I love to write and connect with others on social media and blogs, when it comes time to do my own, I struggle. I should enjoy this time since it allows me to be creative and write about what I want to. However, I try to write them as quickly as possible so I can get back to my actual work.

If you think about it, those things that you have to do shouldn’t be something that you dread (or dislike). They are just as important to keep your business running. They are a part of your work, not just something that you do. Whether it is paperwork or advertising, these are essential to the growth of you and your business.

So, what should you do? What should I do? It is not like you can stop doing things that you don’t want to do, though I must say that I enjoy writing blogs but writing my own makes me really stressed. I want to give you high quality blogs, yet I struggle every time that I work on them. I feel like they turn into ramblings instead of the quality that I can give you.

 

  • Set aside time just for those tasks. Be sure that you don’t feel rushed or in a pinch because you know that you have time to work on those tasks. Whether you set an hour a week or several hours in a month, it will help you to know that you don’t need to focus on anything else for that time.

 

  • Remember why you are doing it. Whether you are doing paperwork regularly to be prepared for your taxes or you are posting on social media to attract new clients, there is a reason why things need to be done. I need to remember that I should be giving my potential clients the high quality blogs that I will give them. If they simply see ramblings, they will think that I will hand them that type of work.

 

  • Hire help. There are times when it is worth it to hire help. Whether you are becoming overwhelmed with paperwork or you think that someone is better at advertising than you are, hiring help may be the smartest move that you can make.

 

So, let’s make sure that we are putting our best foot forward all of the time, even if you have to get someone else to do it for you! Focus on your business and completing the tasks that you need to do.
