Here are a few ways to get more of the things done at the office that actually make you money, while thinking less about the other stuff.

1) Set up a system or two to “automate” recurring tasks. These can be easy, such as delegating payroll to a company like Ceridian or ADP (which now cost less than your own time), or automating office supply deliveries.
2) Create and automate forms and templates. Get a little more creative by formatting recurring data entry items and creating templates for customer service letters and emails that get re-written time and time again, or get a customer form re-formatted in Adobe PDF with fill able fields, it’s simple and your customers will love the ease.

Get your people together and make a “recurring task” list of things you would love to delegate, automate or simplify to free yourself up for the good stuff!
