How to Cut Back on Wasted Time

When you’re a small business owner, your time is one of the most important aspects of the success of your business. There are so many time-traps you can get stuck in during your day to day. In the name of saving even more of your time, we’ve rounded up the top ways to stop wasting time with your business.



1. Track how you spend your time


One of the first ways to start saving time is to take stock of how much time you spend on certain tasks each week. This is your first step in protecting your time! You may be surprised at what you find. All of those interruptions during the day add up and impact your productivity, from the phone ringing, to checking voicemails, to scrolling Instagram.



2. Use “Do Not Disturb” on your phone


Speaking of distractions, consider putting your phone on “Do Not Disturb” mode when you’re completing tasks, answering emails, or calling customers. This small action will ensure you don’t get distracted from the task at hand.



3. Schedule your week in advance!


We recommend taking some time at the end of your week to plan out the coming week ahead — identifying your goals and priorities and setting up meetings with your team. Do you need a scheduling tool to help you keep track of the following week? We recently launched a new one on the Fuzey platform!



4. Dedicate specific times in your day to respond to emails and calls


Creating set times throughout your day to respond to emails and voicemails ensures that these tasks get done but that you aren’t spending time all day being distracted by them. It may also reduce your stress not to be staring at your inbox all day.



With these tactics, we’re sure you’ll be saving yourself plenty of time in no time!
