Embracing Systems Can Help You Free Up More Down Time

As a work at home entrepreneur, your ultimate goal is to work the least amount of time, with the maximum return possible. This way, you are free to explore your passions and enjoy time with your family and friends.

Unfortunately, what often happens is that your task list piles up and leaves you feeling as if you are drowning in your duties. Over time, you will become faster at what you do. You will master certain tasks and be able to slide through them compared to when you first started a task and had to learn the ropes.

You will also find better and easier ways of doing things than you originally did them. These two developments will certainly help you free up more time and allow you to enjoy a sense of personal satisfaction.

But if you want to go one step further, then you can create systems and templates to assist you in cutting down on your task list and working fewer hours. Start by developing templates for any area of your business where it makes sense.

This might be a blog post, an email autoresponder, a social media post, a sales page, etc. If you have a template to work off of, then it becomes a plug-in situation that moves much faster and more smoothly.

You also want to create a systematic response for how you conduct your business. This could be anything from your daily routine, such as checking your email first thing in the morning and responding to customers, followed by engaging on social media to a step-by-step system you prefer for handling large tasks such as an info product launch.

Everyone has their own way that they like to do things. When you start looking at your routines and habits on paper, you can often spot ways to combine tasks, simplify them, or help them make more sense.

You might re-organize the order in which things are done. Another thing you may want to do when creating systems to run your business is to see where it makes sense for you to delegate or outsource to another individual.

Whether you hire someone to be on your staff as an administrative assistant, or outsource to a freelance service provider for certain tasks, this is a part of your system that can benefit you in many ways.

Not only will you no longer have to spend time on certain things that you don’t like to do, or don’t have the talent to do, but the more you can hand over to someone else, the more free time you’ll have to enjoy everything you’ve worked so hard to achieve.
