Time Management Tips Thursday Thirteen Post 2

Here are 13 time management tips to help you to use your time wisely to get important tasks done!

1…. Plan daily. Each night write down the top five most important tasks that you would like to accomplish the next day.

2…. Prioritize. List your top five tasks in order of importance and stick to completing each task in order.

3…. Set realistic times for each project. Don't set a goal to fold five loads of laundry in 15 minutes! Anything is possible but is it realistic?

4…. Stop multi-tasking. Do one task well, then move on to the next.

5…. Clear clutter. One of the biggest time wasters is looking for something amongst a pile of clutter.

6…. Delegate. You don't have to do everything. Focus on the most important tasks of the day and allow others to handle the rest.

7…. Reduce distractions. Let the answering machine answer calls. Get up an hour earlier while everyone else is sleeping to get important tasks done.

8…. Sort mail immediately. When you go to your traditional mailbox or check your email, toss out or delete what is not important and take action on what is important.

9…. Use a timer. You can get an inexpensive egg timer at your local grocery store. If you schedule 15 minutes to perform a task, when the timer goes off stop what you are doing and move on to your next task.
10...Use a day planner. Writing things down helps you to stay organized and manage important tasks. You could forget something when you rely on your memory.

11….Throw out old magazines. Tear out articles you wish to keep. Place the articles in plastic sheet protectors and put them in a 3 ring binder. This will keep all of your articles in one place and save you alot of time flipping through advertisements to get to what you want to read.

12….Outsource. Hire outside sources to handle jobs that take up time that you could be using to focus on important tasks.

13….Turn off the t.v.! Alot of valuable time is wasted watching television when you could be doing something more productive.

Local Business Advertising Ideas

For those of us who conduct most of our business online, we sometimes forget to tap into our local market also. Here are a few local business advertising ideas that will help you to market your home based or small business out in the "real world."

1. Get business cards
This may seem like a no brainer, but many people, especially those with online businesses, skip this basic step.

2. Write, or have written, a press release
Once you have a quality press release written, submit it to local television and radio stations along with any local magazines and other publications. Remember however, that there are specific guidelines in how you submit them so be sure to do your homework and send it in the way they ask in order to get better results. If you need help, click here for free press release writing tips.

3. Join your local Chamber of Commerce
Yes, you will more than likely have to pay an annual fee, but it can be worth it. The networking opportunities alone in some areas will help drum up business. There are also various publications that go out to new members of the community, businesses, etc. with a list of all the businesses in the Chamber.

4. Participate in local Networking Groups is a great place to find local home based and small business networking groups to share your ideas and your business with. You can get lots of word of mouth referrals as well as give some to help others to grow their business. It's a win-win situation.

Have a successful day!
