207: How to Batch Work (and Save Yourself Hours)

Description

You’re REALLY busy, right? Want to save yourself hours of time? Read on.

The facts: The average time spent on a task before losing focus is only 1 minute 15 seconds. Multitaskers reduce productivity by FORTY PERCENT across the board. When multitasking, it takes twice as long to accomplish a certain task AND it increases errors by 50%. Here’s the thing… we’re not REALLY multitasking. We are just switching our mind back and forth rapidly from one task to another, not giving either task our full attention.

Today’s episode is all about the method I use in my business to ditch the multitasking lifestyle and work ahead, plan with strategy, work efficiently, and have time off to truly REST. Wonder how I’m going to be able to take THREE MONTHS off for maternity leave? It’s all about BATCH WORKING, friend.

I can truly say how I approach work has transformed my business... but it wasn’t always easy or natural to me. Now that I have batch working down to a science, I’m sharing the entire process with you. Raise your hand if you’re a serial multitasker?

I'm a behavior consultant - my agency requires me to churn out assessments & plans constantly to ensure that we remain funded. the complexity of this process is so overwhelming that I often feel like I'm just treading water, but I have an amazing supervisor who's an expert efficiency planner and I'm going to introduce your "batching" ideas to streamline our department. Our consultants are constantly suffering from every single issue you mentioned (mental "overload") and I feel like I've just been handed the solution to our issues, so, thank you!

Ep207 batch working - some great tips on batchworking but holy ads! There were like 4 or 5 which was really distracting. It didn't used to be like this so hopefully it doesn't get worse.

224: This Type of Business Could Be Your Answer
PLEASE READ: After publishing this episode it was brought to our attention that there is a great deal of controversy and damaging claims surrounding the company featured in this interview, LuLaRoe. LuLaRoe is currently under investigation and facing multiple lawsuits. Our intent on this show was to shed light on a different type of business model and how to successfully approach marketing in this space. While we support the actionable tips shared by our guest and believe they can be valuable for our audience, we do not support LuLaRoe. We hope our listener's takeaways are not focused on the company featured but focused on: Knowing your “why” behind anything that you do and letting it shine in all you share. How to stand out among the others selling your same product or within your industry.  Researching different opportunities that can help you spend more time with your family and loved ones. Approaching relationships not with the sale in mind but in truly being able to connect with other human beings on a heart level. Using your business as a means to serve others needs and not a place to constantly sell. Preserving relationships by being sincere with every interaction. The importance of creating a personal experience for your customers versus creating mass appeal. As always, we recommend researching business opportunities before entering them. We are privileged to serve the Goal Digger audience each week with inspiring stories and know the platform we have built comes with enormous responsibility. We heard your concerns, we're sorry, and we're grateful to have your continued support of the show.   GOAL DIGGER FB COMMUNITY: https://www.facebook.com/groups/goaldiggerpodcast/ GOAL DIGGER INSTAGRAM: https://www.instagram.com/goaldiggerpodcast/ GOAL DIGGER SHOWNOTES: https://jennakutcherblog.com/amelia/
