5 Practices Entrepreneurs Must Do To Increase Productivity
He is smart, he is intelligent, he is talented, he solves your troubles, and he is the savior of all. No, we are not talking about Superman; we are, of course, talking about an entrepreneur.
On a more serious note, an entrepreneur is a person who has to work hard every day just to make sure you get the service of your lifetime. An Entrepreneur, as the every single textbook describes, is dynamic and can act according to the situation. We can keep hymning his or her praises all day long; that is how magnetic and appealing an entrepreneur is.
However, what makes an entrepreneur click? What makes him or her different from the others? You may wonder what a normal human being should do differently to be productive and be anything close to an entrepreneur.
Well, let us take at look at the 5 practices and things that an entrepreneur does to increase his or her productivity.
1. Be Calm and Take Decisions Wisely
Jumping the gun is a very bad practice that can eventually bring your downfall. When you are an entrepreneur, you must make decisions and take calls on them after doing a 360-degree check of the situation or issue at hand.
2. Proactive in Advance
Working late is sometimes inevitable and unavoidable. However, sometimes we do have a choice and we dodge it. Entrepreneurs always think about what will happen in the future. Thus, before they hit the bed and doze off for the night, they always make sure that they have a head-start for the next morning. This allows them that little edge.
You might even say Entrepreneurs literally ‘sleep on it’ when they call it a day but the extra half-an-hour or quarter of an hour that they give becomes invaluable the next day.
This advance pro-activeness can be anything: taking a briefing on next day’s early-morning meeting, a file that you need to read, deciding on the next day’s work clothes or even to contemplate about the route that you have to take the next morning.
3. Bring an ‘Added’ Value to Your Office

Whatever an Entrepreneur touches turns to gold. Yes, they bring so much value, efficacy and merit to the workplace that you just cannot ignore their aura. However, maybe something is still amiss, and as an entrepreneur, you have to rectify that.
If you believe any one single practice or habit of yours is letting your team down, then you must change that as soon as possible. It can be something fundamental like pushing your colleagues or co-workers too far, being too serious at work or even denying everyone a coffee break. If you are doing something, then please replace that habit with things like humor!

4. Making Use of Technology
The difference between a traditional businessperson and a modern day entrepreneur is technology. While the former is very reluctant to adopt it, the latter thrives along with it. Entrepreneurs love using all sorts of modern technologies and systems. In fact, most base their work on technology alone so that they provide a better service/product to their clients.
If you are a budding entrepreneur, then even you should embrace the aid that technology offers. Technology can become one of the best mediums to improve you and your company’s productivity. For a start, you can utilize the features of ERP—enterprise resource management for better planning, execution, and coordination of your organizational goals.
In addition, you can use modern systems like Cloud Computing or Virtual Assistance. Moreover, remember these days, you can easily control your whole company with your smart mobile phone. An Entrepreneur has to accommodate tech-savvy traits in his or her mindset. He or she has to make full utilization of all the applications and the software the mobile phones and handheld devices have to offer. Apps such as Google Hangouts, Tagove, Skype, Venmo and Pocket etc. can easily become your best tools.
5. Encourage and Let Your Team Participate

Thus, it is always important that you must encourage your team and personally make them feel they are an integral part of the whole story.
