Productively Managing Your Time As An Entrepreneur

white and gray analog clock

Being an entrepreneur comes with its load of benefits, of course, but there are also enormous burdens and negative aspects that weigh on you. Something a lot of entrepreneurs wonder about is how can I manage my time more effectively?

The truth is, there are only 24 hours in one day and a lot more things to do, so what can you do, how can you structure your day so that you can get it all done and not go insane in the process?

Stop Waiting for the Perfect Moment

The problem with having ideas and having a creative mind is that it often leads to perfectionism. And so, many entrepreneurs have great ideas and excellent vision, but never really start building towards their goal, because they keep waiting for the right moment, the right product, etc.

But the number one thing you need to know about entrepreneurship is that you just need to start. The only way you will get better at it and learn is by doing, so get to it already. The perfect moment never comes.

Learn to Delegate

This is another ugly face of that perfectionism we mentioned earlier. Regardless if things are going well or poorly for you, you will find yourself tempted to hog all the tasks. Not out of selfishness, but out of an underlying certainty that only you can really do the job as it needs to be done.

That thinking is precisely what is causing you to waste time and your business to fail. A successful businessman knows the importance of delegating tasks and letting others shoulder some of the burdens.

You will never get enough time to do it all, and if you try, you will not be able to do a good job of any task.


You want to do a lot of things; we know that. But which of them comes first? They cannot all have the same level of importance ad understanding which is most important allows you to focus on just one thing, which means a higher completion rate for your tasks.

Get a Virtual Assistant

Similarly, to delegating, you are cramming your day with tasks that you do not need to be doing, but that no one else can do. Calls, e-mails, routine things that another person could easily handle for you, freeing up your time for what truly matters.

This is precisely what a virtual assistant can do. They can provide stability and spare time so that you have more opportunities to focus on your goals.

Take breaks

It may sound counterproductive – we are trying to use up more time, not waste it on breaks. If you think like that, you need to stop. Immediately. A break is essential in gaining perspective and refocusing on your goals. Sure, you can work for days at a time without a break, but then, you are just running on empty.

By taking periodic breaks, you get an excellent chance to reassess and steer your progress in the direction you want it to go.

As an entrepreneur, time always seems like the thing, we will never be able to master, but it is possible.  It takes a lot of extreme dedication, organization, and prioritizing tasks.  With just implementing a few of these, you will find yourself to be a lot more dollar productive and not just busy without results.
