REVIEW PRODUCTIVITY

YOUR CLIENT HOURS

Your client hours are an important part of your business in providing income. To maximise this income, you want to make the most of your available client hours to within your business structure. Client work includes both providing Reiki and administrative procedures to manage bookings and client files. Your client hours should include the time you spend before, during and after your client sessions.

BUILDING YOUR BUSINESS

Understanding your level of productivity can help you identify where improvements can be made within in how your business functions. Understanding how your time is spent helps you make decisions on planning and building your business to meet personal and professional goals.

PLANNING

SETTING PRIORITIES

Setting your priorities within your Reiki business is an important part of the process of planning and improving productivity. Setting priorities can help you structure your day so that you spend more time on accomplishing your tasks. The process of setting priorities will help you decide the most essential parts of building your business.

BUILDING YOUR BUSINESS

Once you’ve decided to start your Reiki business, you then have to allocate a significant amount of time to finding and marketing to your clients, as well as managing your administrative tasks around your clients. The planning process can help you develop a realistic plan to achieving those initial goals of opening your business and then establishing a consistent income.

YOUR PERSONAL PRODUCTIVITY

DEVELOPING ROUTINES

Developing good routines and eliminating bad habits is an integral component of your productivity. Having good routines in place means you can complete tasks with familiarity and structure instead of working through your day in a reactive process. It is helpful to complete mundane tasks as part of a routine so you can have more time for creative work on your business.

GET MOTIVATED

FIND INSPIRATION

Inspiration can motivate us by affecting our perception of our ability to cope with circumstances. If we hold a belief that we are capable, then we also believe that we can undertake goals and transform them from a possibility to a reality. Running your own Reiki business requires demands every day that can be tiring over time. Finding inspiration requires more than having a positive attitude. It helps transcend our mindset beyond what we perceive as limitations so that we can achieve our goals.

REWARDS

Implementing a reward system using incentives is an effective way to help motivate us and increase our productivity. You can use financial rewards (such as increased business income), self-care rewards (taking a holiday) or psychological rewards (achieving your goals). As a business owner, you should include self-care as an integral part of a rewarding yourself to help maintain your energy levels.

FACING OBSTACLES

ELIMINATING DISTRACTION

There are many distractions for a business owner including too many emails, cell phones notifications, social media, or the endless rabbit hole of watching videos on YouTube. We can also become distracted by tasks in our business that may appear necessary, but instead present as obstacles to productivity. Automating, streamlining, outsourcing and batching tasks can help to reduce and eliminate these obstacles so that you can focus on work that is more productive and client focused.

YOUR PERSONAL ENERGY

Your own energy is a significant contributor to your levels of productivity. Your energy levels are affected by your health, your work ethic, and your enthusiasm towards achieving your business goals. Developing a system for motivation and rewards can help guide you through times when your personal energy levels are low. Developing a consistent level of energy is something that every business owner faces as they need to maintain a level of enthusiasm about working towards goals that may sometimes feel unachievable.

TOOLS

USEFUL TOOLS

All successful businesses should implement systems that encourage automation and efficiency. There is a variety of electronic tools available that helps reduce the duplication of tasks that will improve your productivity. This could be as simple as utilizing a password manager to reduce the time it takes to access online resources. You could also implement systems that improve the process of booking clients and delivering your Reiki services.

SELF-CARE

In addition to using tools for business related tasks, we can also use tools for our own self-care. You can use an app for guided meditation or recording aspects of your health with diet and exercise. Implementing a self-care plan becomes more manageable when you use tools that help facilitate success. Accessing online communities can encourage us to undertake essential self-care activities.
