When you’re an entrepreneur, you don’t have a boss breathing down your neck, keeping you on task to get things done. It’s easy to procrastinate on important administrative tasks, especially when they’re tasks you don’t particularly enjoy doing, like payroll.
You need to have the discipline to get these tasks out of the way in a timely fashion. Being busy is not the same as being productive. Make sure you accomplish at least two essential business-related tasks each day. Choose those tasks that only you can do – tasks that others can do should be delegated to others. It helps to put the important tasks first, before you get sucked into answering emails, updating your business’s Facebook page, or returning calls from customers.
