There just aren’t enough hours in the day, are there? I find myself saying that far too regularly. Investing my time, truly taking advantage of the hours that ARE there, is as much a reminder for me, as it is for you. In the nonprofit space, one person may wear 12 hats. Your to do list is a to do notebook. The pile up continues, so how do you make the most of your time? Pay special attention to the technology you use, the schedule you make, and see the hours free up.
Technology has the unique power to give you more work to do, OR less work. We want less to fall on your plate, for sure! Different platforms you use, the sheer amount, can become overwhelming. An all in one solution is becoming more and more of a popular choice for nonprofits. One system that can manage your entire donor experience AND volunteer experience (and much more!), from start to finish, is invaluable. One central solution gives you a quick look at reports, team activity, email marketing success, and new gifts all before your coffee has gone cold. DonorLynk specializes in understanding what nonprofits, like yourself, prioritize most, and make sure that your all in one solution in Salesforce sees nothing slip through the cracks. No time lost, only time gained!
With your technology needs ironed out, be sure to allow your schedule to work in your favor as well. Segment your days so that all priority categories of your work have time segments dedicated to them. Combine meetings, and eliminate unnecessary ones. Use email and task management to communicate with your team, and reserve regular times for meetings, instead of impromptu pop ups.
Invest your time in finding the technology and the organized schedule that will benefit you most.
