This section feels like the solution to so much for busy business owners. There’s never enough time to complete the To-do list, and we all seem to be running constantly just to keep up! If we could just find the Productivity App, method or tip that will finally be the key to unlocking that constant pressure….

Sadly, there isn’t an easy solution!

There are many, many ways to improve your productivity, and that of your teams, and in this section we’ll look at lots of ideas and suggestions, but ultimately we all have a finite amount of time every day, and we simply need to make the best use of it. That means discipline and discernment are going be just as important, if not more, than the latest planner or timer.

As a small business owner, it can be hard to let go of any of your business, but doing so, whether to an employee or an external resources such as a Virtual Assistant, can be transformational. Small steps over time can release you to focus on the areas where you can get the best return on your efforts. There is work in the business that only you can do, the high value work that will drive it forwards, but focusing on the low value jobs means the development either takes longer or simply doesn’t happen. That causes delays, missed opportunities and frustration. It may be a challenge initially to find the cash to pay for the extra resource, but it should very quickly pay for itself.

If you haven’t looked seriously and recently at your productivity and identified tasks that you can pass to someone else, it could be a really smart move. Our experience is that a focussed business owner can do far more with the time they gain than they ever realised!
