On this episode of the Small Business Show, your hosts Dave Hamilton and Shannon Jean Discuss how to set up a volunteer or intern reward system in your small business, manage your time and socialize at events, and use a to-do list to see how your day went.
Dave returns from SXSW with stories and tips on how to connect with people by creating your own chance and making every effort to meet people, even if it’s only for a brief moment. We discuss the tremendous contribution volunteers make at SXSW and how you can apply this concept to your small business.
Shannon is not a fan of structured to-do and time management systems like GTD and others. It just doesn’t work for him and it takes too long to maintain the information on these lists.
On the other hand, at the end of the day it is important to see how productive you have been or how much you have failed. The concept of the to-did list is simple: keep a loose list or set reminders so you can focus on important tasks. Then, if you move on to other tasks or unexpected interruptions later in the day, write them down on your list. Write down (digitally or old-school notch) what you accomplished that day.
Hear more about the To-Did List concept and learn why it can be a powerful tool to succeed, create your own reality, and ultimately help you live the charmed life of a successful small business owner.
