Time Management

Time management is the ability to use an individual's time effectively and productively, especially at work (but with a work life balance).

Small business time management is an element of your business system(s). 
  1. Weekly A-B-C planning
  2. Daily a.m. A-B-C planning
  3. Re-prioritization of A-B-C and if it's a 1, 2, or 3 priority
    • Considerations of
      • Importance
      • Urgency
      • Significance

Email Time Management

My personal email review strategy is a disciplined, calendar-scheduled:
  1. AM email review
  2. Noon review
  3. Late afternoon review
  4. Minimal after hours / weekend (if possible, hold to working hours)

Social Media Time Management

Research, analytics, and channel planning are integrated with your above business system.

Consider a foundation of 
  • Tweets
    • 6-7 tweets per day on weekdays
    • 3-4 on weekends
  • Facebook
    • 5-6 Facebook or LinkedIn Page posts per week. 
    • Periodic on other social networks 
      • But have a daily schedule for each. 
It varies for everyone and all should to experiment to their business system schedule.
