Have you ever started a workday with a whole list of tasks that need to be completed and instead spent the whole day working on part of your website? Or perhaps you were sidetracked by doing your bookkeeping? It’s easily done and once that time is gone, you’ll either need to work for even longer playing catch-up or just leave what you were doing for another day and increase your backlog even further.
Basically, if your business isn’t outsourcing the non-essential tasks and administrative functions then it is nowhere near as efficient as it needs to be to compete. Any time you spend on something that doesn’t make you money is time wasted and it drags down the overall performance of your business.
Bad performance is usually down to a lack of focus caused by distractions that your business shouldn’t be dealing with. Use a combination of cloud computing and outsourcing to make sure distractions don’t impact on your performance and use your time more productively. Get out from behind your desk and focus on meeting potential clients and providing great support instead.
