One of the biggest challenges I’ve personally faced while becoming an entrepreneur and building my business from scratch has for sure been: Time Management. It’s the single most important thing to get a hang of if you’re going to set yourself up for success.
I know! You’re already bored!
But hear me out for just a second. We all have the same 24h a day to create our vision for our life and business and if we’re going to turn that vision into reality then we need to create the habits and daily routines that will support us.
Creating your own habits and daily routines will help set yourself up for success, no matter where in the world you are, or whatever the kind of craziness going on around you.
So today I want to share with you, my 4 Habits and Routines that help me get more done everyday.
4 Tips that will Set You Up For Success
The Bullet Journal
I’ve used every app out there, tried every tool you can name to organize my day and keep track of my tasks, projects and client work. But of all the tools I’ve used this low-tech tool is my absolute favorite: The Bullet Journal
I use a modified version of The Bullet Journal where I keep all my projects and client information as well as my monthly and daily logs. My journal is inspired by this amazing journal by @journalspiration.
The Pomodoro Technique is a focus technique where you divide your tasks into 25-minute blocks. This allows you to stay focussed on the task at hand for 25-minutes at a time.
The biggest benefit for me of the Pomodoro technique isn’t focus, it’s the peace of mind of knowing that you can commit fully to the task at hand without the fear that it will take up all of your day.
If you’re looking for an app to implement this technique my personal favorite Be Focused, check it out if you’d like.
Work in a Proper Office Space
This has been vital for me! I used to work from home but my productivity went trough the roof when I started to work from a proper office at a local coworking space.
Having a space that is actually for work is the single most important thing that you can do to improve your productivity.
Music & Podcasts
Finally to keep me focused and chipper all day long I listen to either music or some of my favorite podcasts. I do much better with something to listen to than I do with silence but this is just my personal preference. 🙂
