If I had six hours to cut down a tree, I’d spend four hours sharpening the axe – Abraham Lincoln.
Working Smarter requires intellectual strength. Working harder mostly needs muscular energy.
Here are 9 ways to work smarter as an entrepreneur:
➊ Schedule your Activities: To save time and stress, prioritize your daily activities and work with a set time.
➋ Notification: Notifications are time wasters especially from Social Media Platforms. Make it a self law not to go through notifications during the first half of the day unless it comes from your client or boss as this is the most productive time of the day.
➌ Be Result-Oriented: Focus more on the result set to be achieved and not the hours being taken to achieve it.
➍ Don’t Work Hard: More effort than required is hard work but the right knowledge and principle applied is smart work. Choose to work smart always.
➎ Relieve Stress: Always find time to rest and relieve your stress because this can hinder your productivity. It will be so difficult to get any work completed when you are stressed up.
➏ Chunks: Work in bits of 30 to 40 mins and have 5 minutes break in-between.
➐ Timing: Set a deadline for each task, and move to the next.
➑ Take naps: A nap can help relax the brain and muscles. It also increases cognitive function, which is getting more done in less time.
➒ Enjoy Life: This is as important as working to give your mind new experiences in life because once your routine becomes mundane you will stop having new ideas. Do things you enjoy.
