Unexpected Time-Saving Tricks

They Shouldn’t Work…But Actually Do


Feeling bogged down by all of the responsibilities that come with running your own business? Check out these 4 time-saving tips as discussed in Rohit Bhargava’s article, “4 Time-Saving Tricks That Shouldn’t Work (But Actually Do).”

1. Open SchedulingDid you know that most of us waste a lot of time scheduling, and often rescheduling, meetings? There is a mistaken perception that you need to have complete control over setting up your own meetings, or that hiring an assistant may be too expensive. Consider hiring a virtual assistant instead to save both time and money.

2. Forced InterruptionsThere is a common misconception that in order to work the most effectively, you must eliminate all interruptions. Although frequent interruptions can make it hard to concentrate, changing tasks throughout the work day can provide a mental break and ultimately help you to be more productive.

3. Going OfflineTake time each day to turn off your phone and computer. Going offline will force you to actually think about solutions to problems instead of thoughtlessly typing a query into the search bar. Being offline also challenges your mind and may help lead you to new ideas and innovations that you may not have otherwise developed.

4. Taking a VacationDuring busy times, the thought of a vacation may seem almost impossible. Instead of saving your work until you return, try delegating it to colleagues or employees. When you return, instead of resuming all of your old duties, watch how your tasks were performed while you were away and ask yourself if it’s really necessary to take those tasks back.
