4 Ways to Save Time and Manage Admin Tasks For Your Business

So much administrative work…. 

14 minutes and 25 seconds.

According to research, that’s how much time business owners spend EVERY HOUR on administrative tasks.

Not every day – every HOUR. 

That’s 24% of your workday – 10 hours or more EVERY WEEK – spent on non-billable outsource-able behind-the-scenes work.

What would you do with TEN extra hours every week?

💰 Have more time for billable work – and therefore create more revenue and profit?

🔥 Sit down and create higher-level strategies for the future, instead of always just reacting to the fire of the day?

🧘‍♀️ Or finally, just slow down to a more manageable pace – and have more time to relax or be with your family (or just to SLEEP)?

When you sit down (probably with a groan) to reconcile your books or update your Quickbooks data – you are saying “yes” to admin work, and “no” to billable work, and rest 😴

Are you ready to start saying “no” to those 10 hours of admin work … and “yes” to fewer work hours and more profit? Because you don’t have to do it all.  You really don’t. 

I know – because I want to help you the same way that I help my clients every single day. 

In the meantime, here are some tips from Mollymaid.com with information on how to save time at work. 

“4 Ways to Manage Your Time at Work

We’ve all heard it said that when it comes to business, time is money. And for many of us, the saying holds true. Use these four ways to save time at work, improve your efficiency and stay on top of your projects.

  1. Is it critical? Or important? If you have a lot on your plate at work, try dividing your tasks into two categories: critical and important. Only move on to important tasks after the critical ones are complete. This is a great way to not only make your workload more manageable but also improve your performance at work.

2. Don’t let email take over your day. Having your email open throughout your entire workday can lead to decreased productivity. Schedule dedicated times each day to read new emails and send replies, and then close your email. That way you can reduce distractions and focus on your work.

3. Prepare a plan for tomorrow. One of the easiest ways to save time at work is to have a game plan for the next day. Developing a strategy for the day beforehand allows you to prioritize tasks, schedule meetings, and complete your work faster.

4. Drown out the noise. A simple pair of headphones helps drown out the noise and sends the universal “I’m busy” signal to your coworkers so you can work efficiently without distractions. “

Hope these tips can help you!
