As an entrepreneur, time is one of your most valuable assets. Entrepreneurs put in a ton of hours to grow their business both during the day and after most of the rest of the world goes home for the night. But with the right combination of technology, prioritization, and self-control you can cut some hours out of your work life and give yourself a bit more time to unwind.
For example, try focusing on just five main tasks each day and try to get them done before 11 AM. This will free up the rest of your day to work on sales or other things that need your attention. Don’t be afraid to leverage virtual staff, either. If there’s busywork that needs to be done, you’re better off hiring someone to do it remotely than you are losing valuable hours doing it yourself. Entrepreneurs are often workaholics, and it’s a habit that can affect relationships and lead to burnout. Instead of overworking, schedule “date nights” with your significant other and keep them. Travel with your family and keep your cell phone away from the dinner table. If you’re looking for ways to save time and money, take advantage of free tech tools like Dropbox, Hootsuite, and 1Password to make your digital life much easier.
