One of the major struggles that people have in their workday is a lack of time, and even more so, the loss of time when it comes to doing the bigger things in life. For example, how many hours do you spend making phone calls, checking emails, and generally being busy instead of being productive? Probably a lot and yet we fool ourselves into thinking that those smaller tasks are work, and we let them dictate our time and energy.
Thankfully, in the internet age, it’s now easier than ever to automate the different types of smaller tasks electronically. Then the bigger problems are freed to be tackled with all our time and energy. Automation can take on many different forms, and while auto responding to emails and messages is fairly easy, what about automating phone calls?
Well, if the task is simple, you can do that too. For example, a digital pharmacy-management system is all about putting all the customer’s data online, so they can have their prescriptions filled automatically without taking someone’s time. If they have questions or other concerns, they can still reach out to you, plus those are problems that need to be fixed by you in person.
But take a look at your workday and see what kind of tasks you have set in front of you today. Can you automate any of them, or maybe have someone else do them for you? The big problems are the ones that need to be handled by you, and you deserve the ability to give them the time and energy that they need. When your business tackles the smaller problems automatically, you’ll find that you have more time to handle the bigger ones.
Then you get more of your time back, and isn’t that great for everyone?
