Productivity Doesn't Have To Be Hard. Read These 7 Tips

There are two phrases that unify all small business “Too much to do and not enough time”  It’s the small business owners conundrum; we create a small business so that we can control our time and our lives and in the end, the business ends up controlling us instead.

It can be ridiculously frustrating, cost you time and money without really adding to the profitability of your business.  And this is where productivity comes in.  Because small business owners wear so many hats, it’s easy to get distracted -- and this is where these tips come in.


  1. Have a goal: You can’t grow what you don’t measure.  Focus on a goal and set up a system to measure your progress.

  2. Focus on the critical 20%: Identify the top 20% of your customers and activities that generate 80% of your revenues.  

  3. Block distractions: Set up systems that isolate you from distractions such as emails and phone calls.

  4. Outsource or delegate: Develop of team of people who are very good at the things you aren’t so good at or don’t like to do.

  5. Leverage technology: Take your business into the cloud.

  6. Learn from others: Collaborate with experts.

  7. Ask for help: Get help from other small business owners.
