Stop wasting time! In the business world, time is money. But, in an ever-more-complex environment, how can we keep track of things and avoid wasting time?

Stop wasting time! Give yourself a deadline to launch that business, next promotion, add new products to your business. Just do something!
2. Have a Plan for the Day
The biggest time waster is not having a day or week’s worth of plans. We basically float through the day reacting to whatever comes our way when we don’t have a strategy for the day, and we don’t make any progress toward our objectives or purpose.
You will be in a reactive state if you do not have a plan for the day.
A day’s plan does not have to be unduly complicated. All you have to do is choose a few hobbies that will excite you, that you will enjoy doing, and that will improve your life in some manner.
3. Outsource some tasks
You may be able to find jobs that could be better assigned or outsourced once you’ve broken down your large priorities into smaller chores. If you’re not experienced (or interested) in accounting, for example, it could be a nice chore to delegate.
You could wish to consider outsourcing administrative chores, bookkeeping, and social media management. It may be less expensive than hiring a full-time staff.
