Productivity 101: Run your business like a well-oiled machine

Do you remember the days before smartphones? Back when you had to call restaurants to order food, go to the post office to have a package shipped, and drive all the way back home if you forgot the close the garage door?

While smartphones have been able to simply our personal lives with the tap of a finger, what about our businesses?

Being a business owner, we know you’ve got your hands full. And for that, we’re here to bring you the scoop on productivity tools for your business that will put some much needed (and well deserved) time back in your day.



IFTTT, standing for If This Then That, is truly a game changer. This brilliant app allows you to create recipes that will automate your day-to-day life, and your options are endless. Here’s how the recipes work: Let’s say you want a push notification on your smartphone every morning letting you know the weather. You set the recipe to say, if it’s at 6:00am, then send me a weather report. Voila! You’ll never be stuck in the rain without an umbrella again.

While there are recipes to automate your personal life, there are also an plenty more to help manage your business as well. Some of these automations can include:

  • Logging how much time you’ve spent at work into a Google Spreadsheet
  • Turning on your storefront lights every morning at a certain time
  • Adding website contact form submissions to your Evernote to-do list

  1. Twelve steps to holiness
    1. Take responsibility – Self love , you must first love yourself before you can effectively love anyone else .
    Vow not to remain in abusive relationships , use drugs , hold onto hostility , commit acts of violence , or detach yourself from family .
    2. Get Real – Stop making excuses : I din’t go to church because ; Those people think they are better than me , they just go to show off their clothes and socialize with their friends , and , I don’t have nothing to wear .
    3. Attend a place of worship that participate in praise and worship of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior .
    4. Choose to accept Jesus Christ as your own personal Savior , confess your sins ; know that we all are sinners saved by grace, mercy , and the blood of Jesus Christ.
    5. Get up out of your seat and walk down the isle to the alter ; give the pastor your hand and God your heart.
    6. Attend your Christan home , participate in praise and worship , open up your soul / spirit to God by being Baptized in the name of the Father Son and Holy Ghosts .
    7. Establish a love relationship with a His Son Jesus Christ . Join a Ministry within your church . Mirror a Christ Like Character of love , joy , peace , patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self control . Against these things there is no law. To win souls to Christ .
    8. O Lord , how I love your law ! I meditate on it all day long . ( psalm 119:97 )
    Read and study your Bible .
    9. Now bring God Glory by ; worshiping Him , loving everyone , conveying your Christ like Character to the world so that others can see His greatness in us . Taking His word into all the world. .
    10. Do not place yourself above mankind. The Bible tells us to love one another as God has loved us so must we love one another . God worked in the Ghetto while He lived on earth . His mission was to save the unsaved . As Christans we must serve as God served.
    11. Do not set out to change the world , but work diligently to change your attitude of how you handle situations you encounter within the world .
    12. ” I once was lost but now I’am found , I was blind but now I seek where God is working and join Him in His works ” .
    As you walk within your love relationship with God and the journey get rough , keep in mind ” The Prize ” Life Eternal with God the Father , Son and Holy Spirit in heaven forever more !
