It is coming to the end of the year and if you are a business owner like me, you may experience burnout if you don’t take a break. I was fortunate to take time out to refresh and spend time with my family abroad. You don’t have to go abroad to get some time off your business but you should still take a break.
Here are few steps that you can take to ensure you do not burn out
1. Plan to Succeed
So with just over three months to the end of the year, you must plan your marketing activities so that you are not all over the place.
Here are some questions to ask yourself:
What are the essentials activities you need to do in your business to improve your business performance?
What activities should stop doing because they are just a waste of time and are not generating any revenue?
What new opportunities should you explore?
Here are some activities you should be doing
Review your marketing plan
Review your marketing objectives
Review your communication plan
Review your sales goals
Take action on the things that are not aligned with your business objectives.
2. Stay Focused
It’s easy to lose focus because there’s so much information overload. For the last few months of the year rather than trying to achieve too much and not achieve anything stay focused on essential business activities. Once you have achieved that goal then move on to the next. You will thank me later.
Here is a list of essential business activities
I’m sure you get the drift. You need to market and sell.
3. Have A To-Do List
One of the reasons for burnout is poor time management. TD Jakes says we spend 20% of our time on the things we are supposed to do and 80% of our time doing non-essential things. It takes TIME to be creative. What if we spent 80% of our time doing the things we were created to do?
Here are some time management techniques that might be useful for you.
ABCDE Method – List your activities and then rate them under the following
A = Must do
B = Should do
C = Nice to do
D = Delegate
E = Eliminate
Urgent & Non Urgent method – List your activities and then rate them under the following
- Urgent – Important
- Urgent – Not Important
- Non-Urgent – Important
- Not Urgent – Not Important
So how does good time management look like?
Start with a to-do list
Use a time management method
Work singularly on each task till complete
Chunk down into smaller tasks
Always ask, ‘’is this the best use of my time?’’
Remember your reason for doing what you are doing.
4. Limit Social Media Time
Are you spending too much time on Social media? Are you spending too much time surfing through images or videos instead of focusing on your business goals? Have you noticed how tired you can get after spending time on social media?
Set limits on your social media time because it can be a major distraction.
Find tools to help manage your SOCIAL MEDIA content
Keep your phone away from your sights for a few hours and see if that helps.
