When you organize your business, there’s no limit to how much you can get done. In this episode, I’m sharing the 5 steps you need to take in order to G.S.D. (Get Sh*t Done) so you can take control of your business and bring in the revenue you know you can.

I’m a firm believer that you need to be organized to reach your maximum business potential. Most women I know pride themselves on being multi-taskers, but studies have actually shown that multi-tasking makes you LESS productive. 

That’s why you need to learn how to time-block. Time-blocking helps you figure out where your time is going each week and what you’re actually wasting time on. When you’ve figured that out, you can block all your tasks together. So, for example, you spend 1 hour in the morning replying to emails, then don’t look at it again until the next day.

When you organize for time-blocking, you should also label your tasks, based on how important it is that YOU complete them, how big a priority they are for your business, and how much you enjoy them. 

Trust me when I say that organizing your schedule by time-blocking will have a profound impact on your level of productivity.

Plus, once you’ve figured out which tasks take a lot of time and take you OUT of your zone of genius, you can start building standard operating procedures so you can outsource them! You also need to learn to love automation to take over repetitive and time-consuming tasks, like onboarding a new client.

Quotes:

“Studies have shown that you are actually 30% less productive when multi-tasking because you aren’t truly focusing on the task that you are working on.” ([3:45])

“What are you working on and spending your time and focus on that will actually bring in revenue? And what are you doing that really is just a time suck in your day? Because so many business owners get caught up in their own “busy work”.” ([12:56])

“So let a CRM take your repeatable processes off your plate and handle them for you. Trust me, it’ll be a breath of fresh air.” ([17:20])
