I get it, completely. Time is valuable. Which is why I wanted to take the time to share with you the 3 steps to systemizing your business to be more efficient. That way you can spend the hours your pour into your creative ideas and see them through. To be more efficient in business to allow you to unlock new potentials and achieve even more desired success and greatness. Yes, it is possible and yes, you can absolutely do this!
The very first step in becoming more efficient in business is to have a plan. Now, having a plan can look a variety of different ways, all of which are important. In order to be more efficient in business you must know exactly what it is that you are doing. Therefore, you must have a plan to how you are showing up to spend your hours that you are working on your business. Additionally, you must have a plan of execution to know the exact steps to take in order to get the things done.
By having a plan you are setting yourself up for success by creating a solid foundation. Having a plan allows you to know exactly what it is that you need to be doing so that you can GROW. My simple suggestion here, just in case you haven’t done this before, but map out a list of all the things you must do in order for your business to function. Once you have that list, create a method for getting things done efficiently. Which brings me to my second simple step for becoming more efficient in business, batching work!
The second step to becoming more efficient in business is to batch work. Batching work is incredible, if you have a plan and know what you are doing that is. After you come up with the list of tasks of things you need to do to allow your business to thrive, sort through and organize the list based off of what is similar. What tasks require similar head space and have similar rhythms to it? Group those tasks together and sit down at one point and work on those specific items.
By batching work, it allows you to get incredible efficient in your processes by minimizing your time and maximizing your effort. Through batch work you will actually get MORE accomplished in your business, in less time and that is exactly what efficiency is all about! Through having a plan and knowing exactly how your tasks are going to get done allows you to maximize efficiency in business and beyond.
Your third step to becoming more efficient in your business is to have a support system. Now, when you think of support system you may be thinking of people in your corner who are cheering you on. Yes, that is important, but not going to actually impact your efficiency too much. Instead, focus on having task management systems and softwares in your corner making tasks more easily done. What are things in your business that you can let someone else handle for you? Whether that is a scheduling service, online task management, a CRM program, or automated software program to focus on managing the bigger moving parts, to then allow you to focus on all that is in between.
Specifically, through allowing an outside system work to support you in your business you are guaranteeing yourself more efficiency and happier served clients. Plus, anytime you find a system that can work towards your business, this allows you to reduce the stress you carry, and instead pour that added energy into more things.
There are so many options out there. Whether you want to organize all your plans and content for marketing through a task management software like Trello. Or maybe you want to be able to handle all the online backend of your business through Dubsado or Honeybook if you are a service provider.
