Step 1: Audit Your Time
Use our time audit tool to track your time just like our buddy Steve. Tracking one week just might save you days of time in the future.
Step 2: Organize and Prioritize
The Eisenhower Box is a tool that helps you organize and prioritize your To-Do List by urgency and importance. Place your tasks into one of the four boxes. It will become obvious to you which tasks you must do, the tasks to delegate, and the tasks to eliminate.
Urgent tasks need immediate attention. Important tasks might not be time sensitive, but they are the things that will help you reach your long-term goals.
Asana has a great article on the Eisenhower matrix if you’d like to learn more.
Step 3: Delegate
The Not Important / Urgent box is the delegation box. These tasks need to be done, but don’t have to be done by you. Break-up these tasks into three smaller boxes. Internally delegate tasks which can quickly be taken over by members of your team. Externally delegate tasks your team doesn’t have the time or the skills to do well. Automate the tasks that you find yourself repeating or things that require moving data from one system to another.
Uncompany exists to help companies externally delegate creative services. Use the form to the right to get in touch.
Step 4: Eliminate
If it’s not urgent and not important, stop. This is the easiest way to regain your time. If you can’t stop doom scrolling maybe you could cut down from 4 hours/day to only 1 hour/day?
