5 Useful Productivity Hacks for SMEs








1.Automate and Outsource As Much As Possible

Take the time to identify what pieces of the work process like HR, transcription, customer service,   are slowing your business down. From there you should figure out what can be done to streamline those processes and get them out of the way. Take advantage of technology to help with these problems.

2.Have A Clear Agenda In Mind For Your Meetings

Never agree to a meeting that doesn’t absolutely require your input. This Linkedin post about covers the importance of not wasting your time in meetings and how to avoid their inevitable chit chat, back and forth, and general lack of effectiveness.

3.Exercise Daily

Exercising burns up the hormone, cortisol, which is the hormone released in excess of stress which can be very harmful to your health and draining of your mental abilities. Making time in your day for just 30 minutes of activity will make a noticeable difference in your life.     

4.Follow These Rituals

Read the book, “7 Habits of Highly Effective People” by Stephen Covey. Also read “Daily Rituals” by Mason Curry. Habits are the cornerstone of success. Develop a habit of waking, eating, completing important tasks, eating, fielding inquiries, and drink at least 5 litres of water daily.

5.Chew Gum

Last but not the least. Studies have suggested that chewing gum can improve memory and creative brainpower. Apparently the motion “warms up the brain” so to speak with an increase in blood flow to the head. In addition, peppermint has been found to stimulate concentration and help sustain focus on tasks. Having a pack of peppermint gum could be handy when you need that extra boost.
