One of the keys to success is establishing a routine.
In every job and every business, there are things that must get done.
Some of these things must be done daily, some weekly, some monthly, and some annually.
But none the less, they must get done.
The best way to make sure that they do get done is to establish a routine that you follow each day.
And set up little procedures to help you do that.
So I have all of these websites set up as bookmarks in a bookmark folder.
I just click on that folder, all of those websites open and I check through them one by one.
It is like a mini-procedure manual built into the bookmark folder.
But not all tasks are website based, and so it is often a good idea to make a list of the tasks that you do.
Not so much to remind you of what they are, but more importantly, so that at some point you might delegate some of those tasks and free up some of your time.
Make A List
So what I have my business consulting clients do is get a notebook and put these titles on successive pages:
- 6 Monthly
- Not To Do (things that you can delegate now)
You can also do this in a Word document, but the notebook is handy to record things as you think of them on the move.
Then they start writing down all of the tasks that they do in the business, on the appropriate page.
Learn to Delegate
The most important things that you can do to grow your business is to start delegating things.
And making these lists is the first step to doing that effectively.
We’ve all heard or been told that Business Systems are the secret to huge business success.
It is what made MacDonalds the huge business success that it is today.
And in case you did not recognise it, the steps listed above are the makings of a Business System for your business.
Businesses at all levels of size and growth can benefit from having systems in place.
Why the Water Bottles?
You might be wondering, why the picture of the water bottles on this post?
Well, that happens to be one of my daily tasks – first thing in the morning, I refill these 2 ‘recycled glass’ water bottles and put them on my desk.
(One is a Vodka bottle and one is a wine bottle! Truly recycled glass! LOL)
My goal is to drink this water during the course of the day to keep my body hydrated and functioning at peak levels.
In fact, doing this today was the inspiration for this post.
And it would be a good habit for you to include in your daily routine as well.
If you are out and about all day, make sure you have water bottles with you in the car.
