Small changes can have big impact if done right...

Susan Bender Phelps's curator insight, October 9, 2015 1:06 PM

Our habits are so easy to do because they are habits and we don't have to think about them to do them and that's also why bad habits or unproductive habits are so hard to break. The good news is, you don't have to break them. Just adopt a new practice and repeat until it becomes a habit. Old habits literally fall away with disuse. This article gives us very concrete and practical ways to start.

Ian Berry's curator insight, October 9, 2015 6:24 PM

All implementable by anyone anywhere. Particularly like the fixing little things every day (I'd add it doesn't have to be fixing it can simply be improving) I call this every day innovation. I also like the it's not a fixing people it's about fixing process

7 Ways to Stop Procrastinating and Start Getting Stuff Done

7 Ways to Stop Procrastinating and Start Getting Stuff Done | NEED EXTRA HOURS IN YOUR DAY? | Scoop.it

If you're like many of my clients prior to them seeing me, you might have a hard time getting started with projects and completing tasks. Maybe you do everything but what you need to be doing. Perhaps you watch TV instead of cleaning your house. You socialize instead of finishing a work project, or surf the Internet instead of writing that business plan you've been meaning to do for the longest time.

You essentially avoid that which you deem to be uncomfortable. It’s an adaptive response to stress, fear, and anxiety. The problem with this tactic is, by putting off an important task, it ultimately leads to more stress, greater fear, more anxiety — and of course not completing the task.

This procrastination can lead to feelings of guilt, inadequacy, and depression — all of which can kill motivation and creativity and perpetuate the unproductive cycle. Poor time management, feeling overwhelmed, unrealistic standards, or just plain laziness are a few possible reasons for procrastination.

Keep your inbox empty with one of these four strategies | NEED EXTRA HOURS IN YOUR DAY? | Scoop.it

No matter how much time we spend trying to optimize our inbox — from batch checking messages to adding bells and whistles — email takes over our lives. Looking at my stats from last month, I received and processed over 10,000 emails (eek!), so finding the right way to manage all this online correspondence has been critical for my day-to-day sanity.

Turns out, though, the "right way" to manage email depends a lot on your own personal style. I've rounded up some of the most popular and successful strategies so that you can decide which one is best for you.

Why Backing Up Data Is Important for Small Businesses

Why Backing Up Data Is Important for Small Businesses | NEED EXTRA HOURS IN YOUR DAY? | Scoop.it
Why Backing Up Data Is Important for Small Businesses and Rules They Should Follow

up your data is important for everyone that keeps data on their computers that they do not want to lose, and this is even more important for businesses due to the many records they are required to keep. It is surprising how many businesses do not backup their data on a scheduled basis, and many businesses have lost important data because of this. Medium to large sized businesses usually have an IT department that ensures that backups are scheduled and are working correctly, but many small businesses do not always think of this because they are busy with other things and assume that their computers are stable enough that they don’t need to backup nightly or even weekly. Then there are others that do not even think of backing up their data until it is too late. Even the small business that do regular backups are not always ensuring they are being done properly, or they are only backing up locally. Backing up locally is a start, and as more and more online data backup services are available more small businesses are starting to realize that this is important.

 

Searching around online you will find many stories of personal data lost due to not backing up computers, and then you will also see stories of businesses that lost important data due to the same issue. Below are stories that discuss the importance of backups, and also discuss more issues that can arise if you are not backing up your small business data properly. There are also strategies that businesses can use to ensure that data is properly backed up.

The Computer Backup Rule of Three – Here are some basic stats about backing up and rules that businesses and personal computer users should always follow to ensure they are backing up data properly.

4 Ways to Protect Your Small business Data – Here are 4 ways to protect your data, as mentioned before this is extremely important and these 4 “rules” should be followed to ensure that you never lose anything.

Many U.S. Small Businesses Back Up Data as a Precaution, but May Not Be Sufficiently Prepared for a Crisis – Computers can crash at anytime, even if your computer is fairly new. Many small businesses that are backing up may not be doing it properly so if there were a crisis they could lose important info.

How to Protect Your Companies Data – Here is some more great advice on the best ways to protect your companies data.

7 Deadly Sins Small Businesses Commit When it Comes to Backup and Recovery – Here are some things that many businesses are doing wrong when backing up data, if you are committing any of these sins then you should get this process fixed asap.

Hopefully some of these articles will wake people up to the fact that backing up all of their data on a consistent basis is extremely important. These days people keep employee records, payroll, sensitive company data such as tax information and much more on their computers since it is much easier this way. These are all important things that no company wants to have lost on them, but there are still many businesses not making sure their data is safe.


Via TechinBiz, Daniel Watson
Jemima Bornman Van Zyl's insight:

We recommend backing up data for small business owners and new entrepreneurs, because we learnt a very expensive and time consuming lesson. Our website was hacked during 2013 and we lost all content. It resulted in the re-design of a new website collecting new content. While we were busy with this project, we lose valuable new clients because we had no face on the internet web.

 

Back up daily if possible, or every second day or even weekly, but then you have the risk of losing one week's content research. I hope your find this useful and applicable to your specialized small business.

3 Easy Ways to Improve Your Efficiency

3 Easy Ways to Improve Your Efficiency | NEED EXTRA HOURS IN YOUR DAY? | Scoop.it

When it comes to many of the people who we think are hardworking, we're really just misinformed. For instance, it is a common thought that people who work late are hardworking. Why? Because the assumption is that they have so much work to do that they must burn the midnight oil to get it done. Another example is when we see people who always seem like they are busy all the time. Again, they have taken on so much work that they must work all the time.

In truth, most of these "hard workers" are just inefficient. Look closely and you'll see they use these methods to produce the same results as everybody else. And while it can be argued that these people are disciplined because of their work ethic, more of a focus should be put on productivity. And to produce more results, you don't have to work longer, just smarter.

Saying no can be hard - so these tips are great.  But I love #2!  Many people are a little confused about the role of communicators.  On top of my communications role, apparently I can also do web and graphic work, manage projects, and develop the program.  And often also a miracle worker.  So clarifying what I can do is a lifesaver.


I've discovered people are overwhelmed with the thought of having to write or develop communications, and the process seems overwhelming.  It makes sense especially if they don't do it all the time, or isn't their area of expertise.  Once I can explain I'm not the content expert (and point out who I think that is), and simply there to support them by getting their material out to the appropriate audience in a way they can hear it, things shift.  The conversation changes, information starts flowing, and a more collaborative approach begins.
