They are extremely relevant as you are planning for the holidays. It’s important to level up and become that CEO right now. Enjoy!
Are you constantly asking yourself, where did the day go? Or, why time runs so fast? Believe it or not, we are bombarded by so many time wasters in our day-to-day business that we don’t realize the impact it can generate in our lives. Between emails, text messages, calls, social media notifications, and even our colleagues, we’re constantly battered with potential time-wasters.
Eliminating all the distractions at the office can have a positive impact on your productivity, output, and mental wellbeing. Don’t get me wrong, my friends, distractions happen but we can reduce them.
In this week’s episode, I talked about the three biggest time wasters that we, creative retailers, face on a daily basis and how we can avoid them. Something I hear every day is, “I just don’t have any time. I’m too busy. I’ve just got too much to do.” I shared some tips on how you can stay focused at work. I share the top three time wasters that I changed in my own personal business life and that really made a big difference. Of course, it’s natural to get distracted. But it’s when we recognize all those distractions and work out a plan to not let them take over our lives that can make a positive impact on us and others.
I want to remind you that if you need any support join my monthly coaching group Retailer’s Inner Circle. In this group, we work together on these types of problems. We help each other. We had a challenge about the phone distraction and the conversation inside the group was just amazing. Please reach out if I can support you in any way.
