Writing Tools, Part 1 – Why Authors Need iPads | BUSINESS and more | Scoop.it

An Apple iPad can make a major contribution to your writing and marketing success, whether you’re a self-employed professional writing a book to build your brand or an entrepreneur creating social media content to market your small business.


I can understand, though, if you think I’ve overstated the benefits of writing and marketing

with an iPad.

 

Confession: I was originally skeptical about using an iPad for writing and marketing.

 

I doubted that an iPad would quickly become a significant part of my daily writing and social media marketing.

 

As a result, when I received one as a birthday gift, I viewed it as something else to complicate my life! I never expected it how much it would actually simplify my life and save a lot of time...

Prioritization - Making best use of your time and resources

Prioritization - Making best use of your time and resources | BUSINESS and more | Scoop.it

Prioritization is the essential skill you need to make the very best use of your own efforts and those of your team. It's also a skill that you need to create calmness and space in your life so that you can focus your energy and attention on the things that really matter.


It is particularly important when time is limited and demands are seemingly unlimited. It helps you to allocate your time where it is most-needed and most wisely spent, freeing you and your team up from less important tasks that can be attended to later. or quietly dropped.

 

With good prioritization (and careful management of deprioritized tasks) you can bring order to chaos, massively reduce stress, and move towards a successful conclusion. Without it, you'll flounder around, drowning in competing demands.

But there is a way to get more done of what you want and need with less distraction, and it’s a strategy that you likely employ for some things already.


You have to schedule stuff. Not just the appointment-specific stuff, but all of the stuff that matters. You can do that by scheduling time blocks.

 

The one great equalizer that all of humanity has is time. No one has twenty-five hours in their day; we all have twenty-four. How we choose to use those hours is what separates us.
