I’ve been in business for over 32 years now and along my journey, I’ve learned a lot of things that have helped make my time more productive and more successful. There’s a certain method to the madness of getting things done, and a strategic approach to tackling your to-do list is going to make you much more efficient and productive.
In the business world, there are generally two types of people:

- those who have a lot of non-productive time not achieving a great deal.
I’m always looking for ways to get things done faster and smarter, and then use my newfound free time to do other, more important tasks or things that I love doing.
Being more efficient and effective with your time, and being smarter with your time is what small business owners/entrepreneurs all should strive for because it leads to you becoming more successful and having more time to spend doing the things you love to do.
