Podcast: 8 Ways to Free Up Time

There's just not enough time in the day! Here are 8 tips on how to free up more time so that you can be more productive.

    

TIP 1: Repurpose Your Content

We spend so much time perfecting one piece of content. Why not make the most out of this time by stretching it across mediums? If you write a brilliant educational blog post then use that content to create 3 Instagram posts from each tip you provided in the blog. This way your audience can consume your content in different ways and you’re not spending heaps of time thinking up new material.

TIP 2: Booking & Scheduling Apps

Save the back and fourth of scheduling a call or coffee meetup. Apps like Calendly and YouCanBook.Me allow other people to book open slots of time in your calendar through a single link. You can block out time for yourself and limit the number of calls you take per day.

TIP 3: Automate, Automate, Automate

If you find yourself doing something consistently, try to automate it. Zapier is a great software tool that can create automated rules for all of your other apps. For example, you can set a rule if an email you sent doesn’t get opened in 3 days then a follow-up email will be sent. IFTTT (If This Then That), Mailchimp, Infusionsoft, and Seval also have automation capabilities to simplify your tasks and save you time.

TIP 4: If You Can’t Automate it, Outsource it

Learn to let go and find people that you trust to take over tasks that you struggle with. Resources like Upwork and Freelancer are great for outsourcing small tasks to save you time and stress.

 

 

 

TIP 5: Practice Saying No

Know your goals. Cut out time consuming tasks that aren't relevant to your goals. Make sure that everything you do is getting you where you need to go.

TIP 6: Do One Proactive Thing for Every Reactive Thing

Don’t get stuck working in the business and not on the business. You will not move forward this way, so prioritize working on the business so that you can grow the business and move forward.

TIP 7: Get Conscious on What is Sucking Your Time & Energy

Take a moment and evaluate where your time goes. Pinpoint things or people in your life that are eating up your time and holding you back. Cut out these toxic relationships to make more time for ones moving you toward your goals.

TIP 8: Make the Most of the Time You’ve Got

Figure out when you are most productive. I know that I work best in the morning after having my coffee. Couple your productive power hours with your top priorities. When you pair these two, magical things happen.
