Being an entrepreneur requires to juggle between a lot of tasks and yet completing them on time. This requires them to be ultra-productive throughout the day and still making time for themselves or activities they love to do.
The question arises how they can up their productivity by a notch and achieve more in less time or how much focus they require. It is in nature of many entrepreneurs to think about multiple things at the same time. That’s their biggest strength and their biggest weakness. While it is easy to say that zen-like focus is the key of success but it is evident that biggest successes often start as distractions, the most wonderful idea strike when you are distracted sitting idle and an idea pops in your mind. Here are few productivity hacks for entrepreneurs to increase their productivity.
Prioritize the most important task
Stephen Covey, author of 7 Habits Of Highly Effective People said in his book,”The key is not to prioritize what’s on your schedule, but to schedule your priorities.” This principle works on the notion that people usually rate what’s on their schedule as per its priority which makes them lethargic if the task is not high priority whereas if high priority work is done first it makes rest of the schedule uncluttered and frees up time for other tasks which may seem trivial but are significant.
Learn to delegate
There are times when an entrepreneur is so preoccupied with small tasks which consume a large portion of his. He/she can find himself short on time if that is the case which reduces their productive hours (if not minutes) which can affect the big picture and startups have a lot of these tasks. One will find himself at peak productivity if he loves his task and if he doesn’t, well you can always hire someone who would love to do the task you are dreaded from. So, an entrepreneur must delegate like a boss in literal sense with some degree of authority so that he doesn’t need to supervise every task.
