Most daily planners and those skilled in personal organization will admit that a daily routine, plan or schedule is a malleable entity. This is because while a broader plan and actionable steps are important to set, life is unpredictable, and sometimes, we need to adapt as we go.

Thankfully, the broader trend is that general plans are more than worth making, and daily plans are still absolutely useful. It’s just that when you can, adapting them for the needs of the now can be important. This is true if you go from working for someone to working for yourself. Not only do you have many new responsibilities, but will rely on yourself as the main asset for your organization.

Moreover, your daily planning might adhere to a wider schedule, wider responsibilities, and many variations of task planning within the broader goals you set. For this reason, you’ll likely wonder how to update your personal organization.

In this post, we’ll help you achieve that:

Assigning Time For Delegating Tasks

The ability to delegate tasks, be that assigning schedules for your team, prioritizing their workload, or having them work on certain projects can save you time, but this also takes time to set. For example, using a filing service for your federal employment identification can be a great place to start for tax services, but integrating time blocks to plan, oversee, and validate the work being done is important. This takes less time than doing the work yourself but must be factored into your schedule also.

Allocate Time For Client Acquisition

When you’re working for someone, unless you’re specifically in a department designed for client acquisition and retention (in which case it’s your full-time task), this is taken care of for you. For this reason, allocating time for client acquisition is an essential task when launching your own business. That means having a space to talk to clients, a know-your-client (KYC) formula for onboarding them or even retrofitting this approach for investors, possible staff, and more. This way, you can ensure your presentations are well-managed, you learn how to gather information from those you’re doing business with, and most of all, you’ve designated time for this essential networking practice. No business owner worth their salt expects custom to fall on their lap, after all.

Invest In Professional Development

You don’t have to be ashamed if you don’t know every single skill required for running a business – almost everyone that starts their own enterprise is lacking, or at least less strong in one area or another. That’s why booking time, perhaps last thing on a Friday, for more professional development is key. It will help you ensure your skills stay sharp, that you review the progress of the last week, that you note down any terms you were unsure with, and most importantly, give yourself time to learn it.Even if you work at the weekend or use your free time to complete projects, this will have been booked in as a vital form of self-investment. We usually expect our employers to train us well over time, but this responsibility falls on your own shoulders now.

With this advice, we hope you can plan the best change even when launching your own firm.
