Five quick tips for making the absolute best use of your time

As a busy business owner time will always be at a premium. So how do you manage things to be as productive as you possibly can?

Planning your prioritiesHere are five things you can do to be more effective.

1. One of the easiest things to do to manage time well is to decide what is most important, and then do it. In other words always put first things first. Sounds obvious but its easily missed.

2. Write up a prioritised “To Do” list every day, it’s a good idea to do those at the end of the day ready for the next morning.

3. To help with prioritising, look at each item on your to do list and ask yourself whether it will move you closer towards achieving your goals. If the answer is ‘no’, then only do that job after you have done the jobs that will.

4.Don’t procrastinate – especially with jobs that might seem difficult or unpleasant. You have no doubt heard the quote ‘If you have to eat a frog, don’t look at it too long!’ Difficult jobs have a way of losing their power when you just get them out of the way.

5.Work out the time of the day that you are most creative and productive and use that part of each day for your most important tasks.
