Pressure…pressure… and just pressure! Hundreds of things to do and all are to be done at the same time! Time appears inadequate. The challenge can be overcome only by making yourself PRODUCTIVE. To become a successful entrepreneur and make your venture flourishing, spend enough time with your business and stay focused on imperative and urgent things.

Penning down and prioritizing the work flow helps both- entrepreneur and business.
By following below mentioned steps, you can improve and enhance your productivity.
Pull Off Excellence
‘No one is perfect and can’t be’. Same applies for an entrepreneur and company. Accomplishing perfection sounds unrealistic and also lends one in disappointment. Attaining excellence appears much more sensible and laudable. Work with a thought of achieving excellence. It will take your organization a little closer to the state of perfection. Notion of perfection only causes disorder and chaos.
Channelize Your Efforts
According to the ‘Law of Pareto’, 80% of results are an outcome of 20% of efforts. So, try to figure out your strength that can bring great results. Mark the Pareto’s law as a USP of your business and reach great heights of entrepreneurship. For this, it’s important that you prioritize your ‘work to be done’ every day. It will channelize your best 20% to the important work and bring best in you and to your business.
Procrastination is born out of ‘Fear of Failure’. It is procrastination that stops entrepreneurs from growing. So, avoid being a procrastinator to not let your creativity and productivity get hampered. Choose a stronger path that can ensure life to your career and business.
Remember, ‘Procrastination is the thief of time’.
‘Disorganization’ is a killer to a business. Keep everything organized in your organization ranging from database of clients to online files. Toil of organizing things can be reduced and simplified by hiring an expert. It will ease your work and will make business process automated.
Woodrow Wilson quoted, “The ear of the leader must ring with the voices of the people”. This quote explains the best the complete concept of listening aptitude. With good listening skills, you can understand your customers and their need in a better way.
Essence is- ‘A good listener can be a good performer’.
Understanding the stand of company in the economy is important. Being an entrepreneur, you should define and describe your success only through achieved or derived results. Measure and keep a track of each and every activity of the organization. Productivity can be measured only and only by setting proper goals.
Enough sleep and leisure are important for an entrepreneur to stay charged up for the whole day. Take the time off to rest you enough. Bring scheduled breaks in your office -work; take your lunch away from your desk and move out for some time to breathe fresh air. It will make you more productive and your business life more successful and systemized.
Delegate your task to a specialist or outsource the same task from people who are ready to do the task at a cheaper price. A good way to enhance your productivity! But, never delegate relationships as another individual is bound to fail in carrying entrepreneur’s significance and thus customer relations should be manageable by you.
Like every employee, an entrepreneur has also got his own set of work that only he can do. Hence, being an entrepreneur , avoid getting into work that do not belong to you like fixing meetings, replying mails, answering calls, etc. Distribute such work and get better control over time. Utilize such time for customer interaction. It will bring brilliance to your business.
“Screw it, let’s do it!”
