4 Time Management Tips for Busy Online Sellers Or for anyone feeling the pressure and stress of too much to do

tired worker one of many busy online sellersI bet you barely have time to read this article . . . right? Fortunately, it’s a quick read so I hope you do.

We’ve all heard the old adage, “Work smarter, not harder.” But what does that mean? And how does it pertain to busy online sellers and others feeling pressured by time?

It’s simple, really.

Working smarter comes down to a genuine understanding of what works best for you. And this is what ultimately saves time.

Write out and prioritize a daily to-do list

This one’s my personal favorite.

The reason is because making a to-do list clears my mind of busy thoughts while, at the same time, producing a visual reminder of the day’s most essential tasks.

What is more is that identifying items by priority on a daily list helps us manage ourselves and what we do with our time.

“Although it may seem simple, a to-do list is one of the most powerful time management tools available,” notes self-development author Brian Tracy.

Set yearly goals, but tweak them monthly

First off, this doesn’t have to be as lofty as it sounds. But it is a good way to get a general idea of what you need to do and when. Like a list, of sorts.

Many busy online sellers get stressed about goal setting. However, this doesn’t have to be the case. By keeping it simple, real life implementation becomes doable.

So whether it’s finding the best way to manage multichannel inventory or anything else related to your online business, try to stay relaxed and take it day by day.

And remember that your long term goals are there to keep you focused on the bigger picture.

“Your internal prime time,” explains Tracy, “is the time of day, according to your body clock, when you are the most alert and productive.”

For most people, it’s the morning.

Whenever it is, advises Tracy, use it as a time for doing your most important and creative work. And just watch how much you’ll get done!

Establish work routines and stick to them

For busy online sellers, time is their most valuable asset.

That’s why routines are so helpful. They allow you to get right into it, without wasting time. Even more, you can set time limits on your tasks which also increases productivity.

Remember that situations will always arise that can affect schedules. So be flexible, too. Because, in the end, time management is about changing behaviors, not changing time.
