Block Off Focus Time

With many high-importance tasks on a franchise owner’s to-do list, setting aside some designated time to focus is important. With some items, you simply can’t afford to multitask. For these tasks, we recommend blocking off focus time so you’ll be able to focus on essential items without the potential of interruptions.

Prioritize Communication

Communication is key, especially in business! While email is a quick and efficient way to communicate with team members and customers, it can also become a distraction when checked repeatedly throughout the day. Set aside some time in the morning, afternoon, and evening to check emails, so you won’t have to constantly check your inbox when working throughout the day.

Use Productivity Tools

It can be easy to get distracted throughout the week and recenter on what needs to be done first. We recommend utilizing online organizational and productivity tools to maximize your work potential and keep things organized.

Pro tip: Use an online timer to help manage your time when completing tasks. This will allow you to focus on the designated task at hand without distractions and can help boost productivity!

Keep Meetings Intentional

Prepare for every team meeting with a list of important topics, discussion points, or issues that need to be addressed. Assigning purpose to your meetings can help prevent wasted time by long, drawn-out meetings.
