Make the most of your “wait time”

As a business owner, it’s easy to feel like you never have enough time to get everything done in a day.

If finding time for a “work-life balance”, enjoying some time with family and friends, or relaxing with a hobby you enjoy seems impossible, then this post is for you. I write about different ways you can begin to save time, that you can take action on, right away.

Here we go…

Jason Womack, well-known productivity coach, has says “15-minutes can fix your time-management problem.” One way that this is possible is by being prepared to tackle small tasks during times you are waiting in a queue, stuck in traffic, waiting for an appointment, etc.

If you are prepared, you can use that wait time productively and creatively. Keeping a list of the things you can do during these times will help!

Some things you could do during this time include:

  • Writing thank you notes
  • Drafting some social media content
  • Ordering your food shop
  • Doing some research online
  • Listening to a podcast or audiobook
  • Making phone calls
  • Clearing some emails
  • Organising your calendar

It’s incredible how much you can accomplish in the time that you’d otherwise spend just waiting around.
