Last month I talked about being prepared and ready for the unexpected. This got me thinking about automation and how much of a role it can play in being ready for anything.
When it comes to personal things, this could be everything from setting up a family chore schedule to creating a regular carpool rotation with other families in the neighborhood who have children in the same soccer league as yours.
For your business, you can save time by setting up automatic payments for your bills and creating regular schedule rotations for your employees – this could be shift coverage, on call responsibilities, etc.
The important thing is to find ways to remove the thinking that’s behind this work and open up that brain space for other activities. It’s also easier to hand to someone else if you do have an unexpected reason that takes you out of the loop. You’ll lower your stress, raise your accuracy (a.k.a. Less forgetting), and get more accomplished in the end.
Thanks for your business and make it a great day!
