When people ask what you do with your time what is your response? Do you really know where your time is spent? I just took a course on scaling my business and freeing up my time that touched on a few sore spots and left me with a long list of action items.
Now I completely understand how systems can help an organization run efficiently because when I was managing a department in the corporate setting we were growing, hiring and implementing new procedures like clock work. I knew exactly what I had to do when I punched in and what needed to be done before I punched out. It is quite amazing how productive I was.
Now that I am my own business owner, and believe I work hard, this lesson shed light on how and why my business does not grow and prosper like it should. Take away the fact that I don’t have employees I still need to run my business with systems. Systems keep me on track and eliminate interruptions in my thought process and allow completion to a project.
The things that happen when you systematize your business are:
* You find more time in your day by structuring general tasks so it becomes a system
* You will find more success in the completion of tasks when you put a system and a strategy in place
* You will learn more as it allows one to increase more brain capacity and bring more processes to your business so that it can grow.
