Exclusive – 50 Tried and Tested Business Tips – Day 5
Welcome to Day 5 of my sharing exclusive tips from Sage’s 50 Tried and Tested business tips resource, that I have been given early access to as a Sage Business Expert.
The resource has the following sections:
- Start Your Business
- Grow Your Business
- Manage Cash Flow
- Control Your Costs
- Work Life Balance
- Employing People
- Beating Business Fears
Yesterday I shared a practical tip from the Control Your Costs section, and on Day 7, I will give you access to the full resource.
Do keep posted.
Todays Tip from the Work Life Balance Sections is:
Take time to think
Allow at least two hours every week for thinking and planning. You run the business. Don’t let it run you.
The most successful people are not always busy,they recognise the importance of reflection, creating space and seeing the big picture. You’ll save time by investing it in ‘thinking’ rather than ‘doing’. Schedule the time in the diary and notice the difference it makes to your productivity.
