Are you a social media junkie? Do you get distracted by email and the time it takes out of your workday? If so, you’ll get some valuable advice in this clip.
Most people don’t tell themselves the truth about social media and email.
Specifically, they are not honest about how much time they spend doing social media and email related tasks.
For entrepreneurs, scheduling time for checking social media and dealing with email is essential.
Why is this important?
If you’ve ever surprised yourself by spending hours of your day on social media at the expense of other important duties, you know exactly why it’s important.
Having a plan for these activities helps you maintain productivity.
By scheduling these tasks on your calendar, you invite yourself to be truthful and aware of the time and tasks that make up your workday. You take a step toward using your precious time to do more meaningful, income-generating activities than scrolling through social media posts and answering emails.
There are a couple of different ways to schedule time for these daily tasks.
One is to create three segments throughout the day: one in the morning, one before lunch, and one at the end of the day.
Each can be as long as you need them to be.
The method I have found that works best for me is to schedule two one-hour time blocks for these tasks.
The hours are blocked off on my daily schedule, although they may not be at the same time every day, depending on what other tasks need to be completed.
But having them there allows me to make sure the time I spend doing those tasks is accounted for. It gets me out of the office when the workday is done, so I can spend the rest of my day doing things that matter to me.
However you choose to do it, it is crucial to be aware of your time spent doing these tasks. Your business (and your life) is too important to do otherwise!
