  • Imagine this: You, the entrepreneur, have a to-do list longer than a CVS receipt, and the clock seems to have a personal vendetta against you. Sound familiar? You’re not alone.
  • According to a study by McKinsey, the average professional spends 28% of the workweek on email alone.

  • It’s a simple yet powerful time management method.
  • Set a timer for 25 minutes, fully immerse yourself in a task, and then take a 5-minute break.
  • After four cycles, take a longer break. It’s like a productivity power-up for your brain.

3. Eisenhower Matrix:

Picture this as your entrepreneurial superhero cape. The Eisenhower Matrix helps you prioritise tasks by urgency and importance.

Split your to-do list into four quadrants:
1. Urgent and Important,
2. Important but not Urgent,
3. Urgent but not Important,
4. and Neither.

Focus on the important and urgent tasks first, and watch your productivity soar.

  • It’s a small but mighty strategy to prevent small tasks from piling up and stealing your focus.
  • Think of it as tidying up your entrepreneurial workspace one task at a time.
