Default 5 Effective Techniques To Get More Done In Less Time

People often say that once you have started your small business you can pretty much forget about your wife, girlfriend, kids, friends or everyone else that matter in your personal life. While it is true that running a business is no small task – they don’t call the owners Chief Everything Officer for no reason – there are ways by which you can get more done in less time and have time left to enjoy those personal moments.

Interesting article, especially about multi-tasking.

Setting the phone on DND and turning off the pop up e-mail notifications are easy enough, but you have ot check in sometime. So how do you truly single task?

I have 3 employees in the office, so how do I stay on task when they have questions, issues, etc.?

I think it depends on what kind of tasks you are doing in the multi-task. Many times it may be OK for employees to interrupt and ask questions. What you don't want to do is have Instant Messenger running; while talking on phone when you are trying to focus on a proposal. Microsoft Outlook (email program) has a "feature" that pops snippet of an email every time it comes to your inbox. I find it very distracting. Invariably you find yourself stopping whatever you are doing and checking the email to see what's in it. These are the things you don't want to have.

At times when you absolutely have to focus on the job you want to shut off everything. I do it frequently when I am writing my blog post.
