The life of an entrepreneur is a demanding one. You wear too many hats that it seems like 24 hours is not enough to accomplish everything that you need to do. Sometimes, your efforts fall short on some tasks that they affect business performance.

It is highly important for any entrepreneur to be productive. That means making use of much time as you have while ensuring quality of work. However, when your to-do list seems to never end and your responsibilities for business and personal life clash, it seems like your patience and sanity are put into a test.

These productivity hacks are the best ways to beat your daily tasks and churn out quality results consistently:

1.        Tackle the Challenging Tasks First

If you’re unfamiliar about the phrase “eat that frog,” here’s what Mark Twain said: “If it’s your job to eat a frog, it’s best to do it first thing in the morning. And if it’s your job to eat two frogs, it’s best to eat the biggest one first.” What it means is to just do your job and get it done and over with. And if you need to choose between two frogs, or two tasks, pick one that’s more difficult for you. This is to help you focus on the challenging job first so you’ll find the less challenging ones easier to do.

2.       Set and Follow a Routine

Do you often feel lost in a sea of tasks? It’s high time you follow a routine. Establish a morning routine that fosters positive towards work. You might want to have coffee and then meditate or exercise. In the evening, you might want to create your to-do list for the next day, highlighting the most important tasks first. In a way, routine sets a direction for your day, therefore improving your productivity and efficiency.

3.       Delegate Tasks

As a business owner and leader, you might hesitate to delegate some of your tasks. You have the natural instinct to be on top of everything. However, you can only handle so much and you need help. Instead of trying to do everything yourself, pick out tasks that you can delegate to someone you trust. This way, you can focus on the most important matters for your business.

4.       Take Care of Your Body

Sure, you have a hundred tasks piled for the day, but you only have one body. And your body will get tired at some point, leading to loss of focus and making you prone to making mistakes. Listen to your body and do what you need to do, whether you need to take a short walk at the park, take a 30-minute nap, eat lunch or just plain give in to that eight hours of sleep. When your body is at its top condition, you are more likely to tackle the tasks you need to efficiently.

When responsibilities begin to stress you out and take a toll on your body, it is inevitable to give less than 100%. Instead of churning out high-quality results, you end up burnt out, unfocused and less efficient. You have to learn to make use of your time efficiently, while making sure you get enough rest to recharge.

Remember that what it is you have done efficiently today is a stepping stone towards success. It’s a milestone! If you achieve your milestones by being productive daily, then you’re on the right path towards becoming successful.
