Look at some of the time management tips for small business owners:-
Don’t Be Scared to Delegate:-
Choose people you can trust, and give them the work you don’t have time for or the work you don’t understand how to do. This will give you time to concentrate on the tasks you’re best at and the ones that mean the most to you.
Identify your big-time wasters:-
When you complete a time logging day, you'll instantly see where you're wasting a lot of time. Take your time log and total up the time of the day you tracked and then try to classify all of your activities. Then, do some basic calculations to define the percentage of time you spend on each activity. The purpose here is to discover the areas where you're consuming way too much time.
Know Your Priorities:-
You may not get everything done, every day. Most of us will always have some items leftover every day that we didn't get completed. You might think about building a priority task list, or at least know which ones you can leave.
Track Your Time:-
Time tracking with a dedicated time tracking tool can be a great way to manage time, even when you don't require to track your time spent on the client. Tracking your time throughout the day can assist you to improve productivity. It can keep you concentrated on the task you're working on right at that time.
Multitasking might seem like a quick way to save time by reading as much work as possible in a short amount of time, but it’s likely doing more wrong than good. Focusing on one task at a time increases performance and productivity. Conversely, working to take care of a particular task while you respond to every text, respond to every new email, and manage every problem as it arises means you’re not giving any one thing the consideration it deserves.
