How great is it that you can make mistakes within your business and still have a business the next day?
Here at Kahuna Accounting, we’re not above mistakes, nor are we above admitting them and apologizing for them. We’d like to send a sincere apology to everyone who signed up for our 7 Ways to Grow Your Business with Bookkeeping webinar that was scheduled for Tuesday this week. Due to using new software and some technical difficulties, we were not able to go on with the show. We will be recording the webinar and publishing it for free on our YouTube Channel. Stay tuned for updates, we promise it will be worth the wait.
This week in the Kahuna Accounting Weekly Newsletter, we discussed the importance of getting tedious tasks out of the way first. Instead of putting the tedious tasks of your business on the backburner until they pile up, try hitting them head-on to eliminate stress and to disallow them from controlling your time later down the line. These tasks (the tedious ones) can be anything from updating your Google Calendar to making a to-do list for the next week. Believe it or not, being disorganized can take a significant toll on you and your business.
“[Disorganization] stresses us out and ultimately burns us out. It makes it harder to do everything and ultimately makes our businesses less profitable,” says entrepreneur Mike Veny in a recent Manta Tip of the Day article.
“To combat chaos, Veny suggested blocking out time every day to organize. The amount of time reserved is less important than the consistency of the habit. “Batch tasks and use checklists for everything. You will think less and get more done in less time,” he said.”
Pick one thing this week – a “tedious” task, and do it before anything else. Taking it off of your plate will free up your time and mind to focus on what’s important for your business.
