Entrepreneurs wear at least a gazillion different hats.
From human resources to payroll manager, to content generator- the list is endless and exhausting. Here is a compilation of things that most entrepreneurs do so that they can continue generating those magnificent ideas!
1. Sleep is imperative for being productive and healthy. Do you feel like you’re not getting enough sleep? Try the Oura Ring– it will let you know how you’re sleeping and helps you analyze how you can improve your sleep!
2. Take breaks! Your poor body was not designed to sit at a desk for 12 hours every day! Perhaps you can get a desk that will allow you to stand up while you work, essentially giving your back a break from the sitting, slouched posture. Put the water or coffee in another room so that you actually have to get up and stretch your legs to get a refill! Don’t eat your lunch in front of your computer, instead try eating in a different location and maybe even taking a walk afterwards! Your body will thank you later!!
3. Try outsourcing some of your work! Hire a personal assistant so that you don’t have to run to the dry cleaners or purchase birthday gifts. You can also outsource someone to create graphics for you to use on your social media platforms, you can outsource someone to write your blogs, create content, etc. This will free up your time of mundane tasks that weigh you down and will give you more time to create!
4. Being an entrepreneur is a lifestyle about flexibility. If you’re a morning person, get up in the morning & do your creative work first. Some entrepreneurs work best burning the midnight oil. Embrace the flexibility that you’ve incorporated into your life and make sure you’re creating at the time of day that works best for you!
5. Try not to get caught up in the perfectionist mindset. Yes, your products need to reflect a certain level of precision, however, it’s much more important to take action rather than waste time on EVERYTHING being perfect, additionally, trust your team to assess for perfection. It’s better to take action on a good plan than to sit on a perfected plan and wait. Productive people create things by taking action, not by obsessing over perfectionism.
6. You will get MUCH more accomplished if you are focused. When you throw in multi-tasking, your work tends to be more scattered. When you create your weekly schedule, you will then know the various pockets of time you’ll need to be focused.
7. Boundaries tie together many of the things productive people do. They keep productive people organized and help them prioritize. When you make boundaries and uphold them, you save yourself a lot of trouble in the long run trying to figure out and analyze all the exceptions. Boundaries are a great way to organize. Come up with your own and try them out.
