Whether you work from home, in an office or you share your time between the two, there are moments during the day where you waste time. It may be because you need to organize better, you are caught in traffic, or don’t have the right tools to maximize your time. Since time is money, here are a few ways you can make sure to get the most out of your business days.
Organize As Much As You Can
Efficiency often comes from a well-organized schedule. If you wake up in the morning and know exactly what you have to do, your day will surely be productive, providing you don’t find yourself with unexpected problems to solve. At the opposite, if you are unprepared, you may go through your day, jumping from one project to another and wasting a lot of time.
An organized person will prepare his tasks in advance. You can either do so the night before or on Sunday, prior to the start of the week, as the Monday morning movement can rapidly lead astray. But it also means making sure that all the tools necessary to do the work efficiently are always around us.
For example, the car ride to work in the morning can be a sacrifice of precious time, when traffic is stuck. But if you have a tablet holder for car installed, you can actually make the most of the long ride in. Just make sure you can use the vocal command to interact with the tablet.
Use The Cloud
If you use different computers at home and at work, the Cloud is the best place to save your documents. That way, you will never be caught without an important report you need to deliver or to work on. Also, you won’t find yourself with three different versions of a document. It is also quite useful when you need to share them with your colleagues. With Google Drive, everyone (provided you give them access) will be able to modify the Excel file PowerPoint or Word documents online.
Before the pandemic, meeting through a video call was not considered a real encounter. However, this has completely changed, now that the world has been through a few lockdown periods. Deciding to meet people online, instead of a physical meeting, will make you save an enormous amount of time. Choose the software you prefer (Zoom, Skype, Messenger…) and learn as much as you can about it. Make test calls with friends as well, prior to business meetings. You should look at your best and in control.
