Do you use streamlined processes to stay organized? Whether it is automatic bill paying, mobile banking, paperless statements or another automated system, streamlined processes will save you time and stress.
There are many ways to streamline a process, but the main goal is to simplify a routine habit or eliminate unnecessary tasks to improve efficiency.
Our blog post about Force Multipliers also highlights things that, when put in place make other things easier. Force multipliers are small changes you can integrate into your daily routines. They may not seem like much, or take much effort in and of themselves, but they will ultimately save you time, stress, and make a positive impact in other areas of your job or life.
We also love introducing our clients to the concept of systems. A system is a set of steps or a process to follow each time you perform a task.
Streamlined processes and systems are efficient: develop it once and follow it to save time when you execute. Whenever you follow a pre-determined process, you don’t have to think about the action to take, or the next step. It saves energy, it is predictable and best of all, it gives you consistent, dependable results.
Examples of streamlined processes and systems you can implement:
You can create a streamlined process or system for anything you do where consistency would be helpful. A few you might consider for your professional or personal life include:
