Once I I worked out that could manage my business using Asana, my sense of overwhelm really reduced. I don’t know about you, but I feel very overwhelmed when I have lot of things swirling around in my head – and I can easily end up not doing any of them.
I wonder if you’re utilising Asana as well as you could – so I thought that a sneak peek into my Asana, and show you how I manage my business using Asana.
There are 3 key benefits about centralising all of these areas in one place. Watch the video, and I’ll expand on them below.
3 ways I manage my business using Asana
#1 A centralised hub
#2 I have a clear list of what to do each day
Now I think this is a massive win. We can call be guilty of keeping everything in our head – but it’s actually hindering our business growth.
Prioritising, and knowing where to start each day – when there is so much to do anyway – is SO helpful. If I’m not clear on what I have to do, then I literally end up Facebook scrolling, and it just sucks my productivity.
As you can see in the video, the daily task management in the ‘My Tasks’ section is a great place to head to every day – and to add anything too.
I can see which tasks from different projects need my attention and prioritise them quickly.
#3 The bridge to Outsourcing
Asana makes outsourcing easier. Now, I’m not saying you an just hire a VA and assign tasks to them. They need to be inducted, they need to know what you need and how you work.
You need to have the systems in place so that you can then outsource from Asana – but Asana is the perfect tool to stay on top of the tasks and communicate with your VA about them.
Here’s what you need to remember
#2 Try not to be overwhelmed by my system! Remember, I’ve designed and built this over time. It has evolved. We all started somewhere, so please keep your expectations realistic. 🙂
Don’t fall into that trap of comparing mine to yours – we’re all on the same path, just at different places along the way. I’m good at systems, but not so good at other things (like copy, for example!)
