Want to Kick Start Your Productivity?

This can sometimes be a tough subject for entrepreneurs because we want to be able to take care of everything on our own but may not always have the tools (or time) to do so. Increasing productivity means you will finally be able to put all your energy on what is most important – growing your business. And of course, being able to find that happy place of work/life balance in the process. Summer is now in full gear! It’s a perfect opportunity to evaluate your business systems and tools to determine what is or isn’t working for you. This will help pave a path for new strategies and assist your business growth. The same way as watering your garden and watching it thrive as everything blooms.

Here are a couple of great tips to help you get started:

1. Keep a log of all your daily activities for at least a week or two.
I like to use the Evernote app as well as my trusty motivation journal. But you can use any app or even just good old-fashioned paper and pen on fun coloured paper. Creating this log will show you how you’re spending your time so you are able to prioritize tasks by organizing them into order of importance. This will free up much more of your time.

2. Determine which tasks you are able to delegate, automate or perhaps even eliminate.
One of the best suggestions I can make would be to start with the small stuff and chisel your way through to the bigger tasks. This will make you feel more accomplished and motivate and inspire you to get working on the bigger tasks on your to-do list. When we get talking about delegation, you may have heard that it is one of the best ways to free up time but in my opinion, automation might just be a better option. By achieving more automation, you will be able to reduce repetition, therefore increasing productivity. You choose which path is “the best” – but if it’s not working – change it!

3. Use all this new information and dive right in!
Last but not least … utilize the information you just gained. Figure out what works and what doesn’t as well as what areas require more attention than others. Do your homework. Ask other for advice if you’re unsure or want a second (maybe even third) opinion. And try new tools/apps. With becoming a bit more clutter-free you’ll be able to get clear on what tasks could sue some improvement and dive right in.

Crystal is an artist, a writer, an organizer, a dreamer, a doer, and down-right proud of it NERD!.

Struck with a love for #AllThings creative at a very young age, Crystal dreamed of a life fueled by her passion for creating and bringing the stories and images in her mind into reality.

As she worked toward her dreams, she earned a diploma as a Computer Applications Specialist then another in Graphic Design and from there began to develop her extensive background in multimedia and the arts. She began her worked in the magazine industry as a layout designer and had a succession of design jobs thereafter. It was her role as a graphic/web designer that gave her the first real glimpse of her future. Soon she began a side job as a freelance designer while keeping one foot in the corporate world. A spark was lit! She turned her freelance gig into a full-time business combining design work with her other passion: creating organization from virtual chaos.

Crystal is one of the most organized individuals on the planet. She is by all means a Zen master of her crafts. She excels at helping others become “untangled” and provides her clients with tools to run their businesses smoothly while she takes care of the details behind the scenes. Thus Virtually Untangled was born. A successful business where her work as a top notch creative in graphic and web — with a twist of virtual assistant — married into one amazing place where clients can come with their virtual messes and become magically untangled. Crystal can always make sense of even the most unorganized chaos and offers a virtual detox of order and peace, so her clients can get busy doing the work that they love the most.
