Time is very valuable. It is our least plentiful resource, and if you are most entrepreneurs, you are often trying to fit in multiple tasks in a single hour to maximize your time. Yet, often we end up doing a lot of things halfway and not gaining any momentum. Bottom line is we all want to free up some time on our schedules to enjoy life.
Here are 3 effective ways to help you free up some time, feel accomplished in your goals while enjoying life balance:
1. Time Blocking Your Schedule
While this may feel constrained, it will give you the biggest freedom in the long run. As business owners, we need uninterrupted blocks of time to allow for the ideas to flow. Having a schedule where we have everything accounted for allows us to make sure the business tasks that have the most impact are accounted for. ‘

2. Visible Reminders
Most of us rely on technology or cloud-based services such as Dropbox or Trello to arrange our schedules, appointments and provide reminders to help us avoid forgetting things we might miss otherwise. However, no matter how well we plan our next to-do list, chances are, you’ll lose the quality of the secondary or pending tasks one way or the other.
One solution I do is to have one big whiteboard in my workspace that has important projects and any required deadlines. I make sure to review this on a weekly basis to keep myself focused on the next important project. Sometimes, all you need is a physical paper, post-it note, or whiteboard to remind you. Try it, it works pretty effectively. Think of it like double-checking your homework before you submit it.
3. Establish Good Alliances
Building your group of people to help you with your business is very important. Finding motivated and skilled individuals are the core ingredient to a well-run organization. However, searching for the best candidates to involve in your business can be costly and will consume a huge amount of time if done well. One best solution to this is to hire an excellent virtual employee.
