Ensuring productivity is one of the most crucial tasks of running an entrepreneurship venture. The success of a company or an entrepreneur is normally measured by how productive it is and how good the venture is. Responsible entrepreneurs pay particular attention to how productive their company is.
In fact, it is highly recommended by famous Indian and UAE based entrepreneur, Hari Shankar Tibrewala, for the novice entrepreneurs to periodically carry out productivity and efficiency reviews.
For example, ensuring that employees are not continually interrupted during work hours is a simple enough way to guarantee productivity. It doesn’t cost a fortune to build a highly productive and efficient team for your venture. Here are some tried and proven hacks any entrepreneur out there:
Use the Right Kind of Tech Tools
The new workplace has made key strides in productivity thanks to technology, mainly tech that enables computerization. Hari Shankar Tibrewala says, “Surprisingly enough, it doesn’t cost much to invest in technology that increases company productivity levels.”
Prioritize the Least Desirable Tasks
Employees can, and certainly do, procrastinate. The main reason people delay is because they view a task as unachievable or impossible to do in a short period of time.
If an employee is stuck with an annoying task he or she refuses to do, then the rest of the remaining tasks suffers as well. Hari Shankar Tibrewala states, “It is better to instruct employees not to leave unwanted tasks to the last minute.” Practice this motto at the workplace and the improved productivity levels will be demonstrable.
Workplaces will be able to evidently experience intended results after implementing the above productivity hacks. It’s better late than never to invest in productivity. So start trying out these two now.
You might be satisfied now by establishing yourself as a thriving entrepreneur. We know it is a gratifying sense with sometimes experiencing most stressful times in your journey. With all the hurdles the entrepreneurs face, it is normal for them to neglect some crucial things in life which bring happiness.
Hari Shankar Tibrewala, the entrepreneur who is very active for his venture in South African countries for the local community there, asks, “You may concentrate on what you need to be successful, but are you still concentrating on things which matter in life?”
Time is the thing which most of us overlook. Entrepreneurs take “time” for granted as they are so focused on their venture.
“You must take a break from your work to enjoy life and spend time with your family. Once you are gone, you no longer get to enjoy anything in this life. You must take advantage of the time you have now,” Hari Shankar Tibrewala.
Health is another one of the biggest things which an entrepreneur overlooks. When starting off with a new venture, entrepreneurs work 60-80 hours per week, causing excessive strain on health. Even Hari Shankar Tibrewala has worked for more than 100 hours per week before the launch of his farming project in the South African nations. Entrepreneurs need to find ways to keep themselves in shape.
Spending all your time working and not enough taking care of your health makes you the prime candidate of unwanted diseases.
Don’t believe that being an entrepreneur is the single thing you have in life. Entrepreneurs are more successful when they keep in mind the crucial things in life. Take the time to enjoy your life, stay healthy, and take care of others as well.

Doing the right thing! This seems like a basic principle that most entrepreneur should follow doesn’t it? By now all who have been following this platform and particularly this account will know that one of our favourite things to write is about leadership, and one of our favourite entrepreneurs is Hari Shankar Tibrewala.
Hari Shankar Tibrewala is the entrepreneur to numerous noble ventures, and is regarded to be the brain behind the agro venture in African nations with Plus Group.
According to Hari Shankar Tibrewala, while being a leader and an entrepreneur, you need to do the right thing while doing things right. The former affects satisfaction, and the latter affects productivity and efficiency.
Mr. Tibrewala has observed that when faced with a problem, most novice entrepreneurs look for immediate solutions. Characteristically, they look to actions that generate improvements in a relatively short amount of time. But, this can prove to be very costly down the road. Some entrepreneurs are cutting back on marketing activities to cut costs. At first, the impact on new business may be least, but the longer term impact can be severe. This solves an instant problem but can create much more serious trouble later.
Hari Shankar Tibrewala suggest the beginners saying, “We must make sure that we are not just ‘doing things right,’ but that we are also ‘doing the right things.’ Making strategic decisions without having a tactical, big-picture view can be devastating. I will definitely suggest for a business mentor for good advices and detailed discussions.”
They inspire, but they also intimidate. We are taking about the successful entrepreneurs.
