How have I been saving time lately?
A few posts back I shared a few ideas on how I could shave some time off my day, and I have a few more tips to add into the mix to share with you!
I had noticed that I was spending a lot of time on my computer. While much can be created and done on the computer, I knew a lot of things I was doing was not productive. A few things that I had done to save time are:
#1 – I stopped playing Facebook games. While I had lots of fun playing these games, it wasn’t generating business for me (except for one client last year), and I was doing it too frequently. So, with much regret, no more Castleville for Tiffanie(which I am now fine with).
I know some people who accidentally got my requests are very happy (even though it was supposed to only go to people who were also playing the game).
#2 – I use the tips that Renia Carsillo shares with us in the Facebook 5. In this webinar, Rnia shares how to manage your Facebook account with just a few things. Utilizing this, I figured out how to use Facebook schedule postings so now I can schedule my business pages update a head of time. I recently set up for Thread Art 30 days of Unconventional promotional products for September, so they’re posted every day.
#3- I now answer my e-mails when I get them, trying not to let them sit in my inbox for hours days or months. Also I have turned off the sender/receive function so that I do not see every five minutes that little blue box in the corner.
#4 – When my husband got me an iPhone, I did not set it up to get e-mail. On my last phone I would get e-mail, and sometimes I would answer it, other times just read it. Now I only read it the single time on my computer and deal with it then.
Technology is great, at helping you be more resourceful as well as sucking your time – It should make your life easier not take up too much your time. I will be sharing a series on the blog on some of my favorite APPS that do make my life easier, sometimes even saving time!
How else can you save time with your Technology?
