Save Your Self Time Energy and Money
In our earlier post on SYSTEM, we discussed the importance of systematizing your business processes, and some high-level ways to go about reorganizing your internal business structure to create better efficiency in your organization. In this post, we would like to further explore the concept of systematizing your business.
To more easily recall the benefits of sound business systematization, we would like to introduce you to the easy to remember acronym, SYSTEM. This stands for Save Yourself Time Energy and Money. When you think of this acronym, you can quickly recall the necessity of creating a system and process for your business.
Systematizing your business process allows you to save time by automating many of the tasks you do every day. Through automating, or delegating these tasks you can focus on more important matters. With a little research, you will be surprised what can be easily and quickly automated. As for delegating tasks, take a look at the small tasks you are doing each day, or week and see if they can be grouped into similar themes. These may be better assigned to another individual in your organization.
Through saving yourself time, you will have more energy to put toward other tasks. Expending energy on a variety of small tasks which others in your organization could be handling for you is not an efficient use of a business owner’s time. You are the individual with the vision for your business, and it’s up to you to get it there, wasting your creative energy on repetitive tasks throughout the day is only a hindrance.
As a direct result of saving time and energy, you will be saving yourself money. Less hours will need to be put in to complete the same amount of work in a day In addition, by making your business a well oiled machine, you will have less risk of costly mistakes, as every part in the machine has its own individual function that it performs expertly. As the business owner, you are meant to oversee this machine, keep it oiled and maintained, but not be a cog in it.
Now that you have learned the acronym SYSTEM, and the benefits of having a sound system in place, we hope that you can begin saving yourself time, energy and money by having a more efficient business process.
