3 Ways For Tech Business Owners to Have More Time

When you run your own technology business, there is always work to do. You can never sit back and relax once completing a task. You just have to move on to the next item on your to-do list. 

It often seems like there aren’t enough hours in the day to complete all the jobs you need to. You have to constantly think about growing the business, finding new clients, and promoting your brand to your target audience. And if you let it slide for a short amount of time, you will see the negative impact it has on your success. If only you had more time.

But with 24 hours in the day, the problem is not that you don’t have enough time. Instead, it is all about time management. By reorganizing your schedule and assessing your priorities, you can boost your productivity and get more done. The following article looks at some top time management tips and as well as time-saving hacks that will allow you to make the most of every day.

Pick the right times

You don’t need to be constrained by the traditional nine to five working hours. Everyone works differently, and if you feel more productive at certain times, you shouldn’t make the most of them. For example, if you love waking up at the crack of dawn to write proposals or working on your website late into the night, don’t let convention stop you. Squeeze every last drop of productivity out in these times and you will be surprised how much more you can get done.

Eliminate time wasters

There are so many things in business that waste monumental amounts of time. The two main offenders are meetings and emails. How many overlong meetings have you had to sit through, during which nothing was decided and no one wanted to be there? They are often productivity black holes that take you and your staff away from important work and are only rarely effective or necessary. You can fix this by only scheduling meetings that are absolutely necessary, and only inviting those who really need to be there. Try to shorten them too by scheduling 15 minute meetings rather than 30 minute ones, or putting them right before another appointment in your diary so you have an excuse to leave on time. You could even hold standing meetings so no one wants to hang around and have small talk.

Email is also a big time waster, as most people spend over four hours a day checking, reading, and writing emails. It’s very hard to ignore a notification when it pops up and it can distract you from the task you’re currently engaged in. INstead, turn off notifications and only check your email a few times per day.

Outsource important tasks

A tech business owner should focus on growing the company and finding new customers. You shouldn’t be using your mental energy on things like IT support, bookkeeping, or marketing. If you don’t have employees to cover these roles, it’s a good idea to outsource them. Outsourcing these duties to an external third party such as an IT consultancy, accountant, or legal firm ensures these jobs are managed by experts as well as freeing you up to focus on the areas that need your attention.
