Do you find it difficult to say NO to tasks, or even to family and friends?

I’m your host Lyndsay Phillips and this is your Smooth Business Growth Flash Update.

“NO” is not a dirty word! When possible, say no to tasks you can’t take on. Many times those task don’t serve you or your business. And believe me, it’s okay to say NO to those you care about, because seriously, you can’t do everything.


Schedule Your Priorities

Setting priorities for yourself isn’t always easy, but here are a couple of things to think about.

I’m your host Lyndsay Phillips and this is your Smooth Business Growth Flash Update.

Schedule tasks in your calendar for the things you ‘have to do’ to ensure they get done and you don’t forget to do them.

Schedule certain times of the day to do your Social Media for business – so you are focused on what you need to get done, and not distracted when social notifications pop up!


Clear the Clutter

Does your inbox get inundated with too many emails including junk email, and other crappy stuff like mine?

I’m your host Lyndsay Phillips and this is your Smooth Business Growth Flash Update.

Each day, when you first go into your Inbox – delete all the ‘stuff’ and junk you don’t need; any resources or articles you DO want to keep for later – use an app like GetPocket to store them. Then delete that email to unclutter your inbox. It also makes it easier to find what you DO need to respond to it in a timely manner.

Do you find yourself answering the same questions over… and over…  and over, again?

I’m your host Lyndsay Phillips and this is your Smooth Business Growth Flash Update.

If you have email responses that are similar, depending on a specific situation, MAKE A TEMPLATE. Copy and Paste the main body of your response and only change the name and a few details… it’ll save you time!

Another solution, if you get the same questions being asked over and over – set up an FAQ page on your website, then, you can just email the person the link.

What’s your number one distraction these days?

I’m your host Lyndsay Phillips and this is your Smooth Business Growth Flash Update.

For me, a distraction used to be my phone pinging me, or reminders popping up on my computer. By turning off sound notifications on all your devices, you are less likely to get distracted. This includes sound notifications on your phone – they can be distracting – just schedule time each day to check up on emails and address them.
