1. Team Communication Is Essential.

In life, communication becomes the by-laws humans live by. It’s a method used to understand, integrate and to listen to various voices without any biases. In a relationship or at work communication is key to success; it puts away differences and avoids unnecessary misunderstandings that could result in the lack of productivity and efficiency.

Therefore, this same concept applies with a start-up, a start-up usually consist of a small number of employees or better yet team members. Usually, it’s the people we trust the most and the pivotal structure in ensuring the success of any Start-Up. As the founder, it becomes your responsibility to create an ambiance, which allows the freedom of communication and understanding.

This way of management allows tasks to be delegated easily and leads to a solid organization instead of a messy one. Hence in the future it will help you to avoid any misunderstandings and will lead to a greater success,

2. Don’t Allow Everyone To Make Decisions In The Terms Of Accounting.

Even though communication is a key point in progress, finances should be between two parties. The concept of too many cooks’ ruins the soup applies in this delicate situation. As in the beginning of a start-up, financial decisions become important factors that decides the fate of your start-up for the next 3-4 years, hence making the right call at the right time becomes necessary.

Therefore, instead of involving the whole team in a financial decision, it would be best if things were kept simple between you and your accountant. This allows you to keep an open mind and reduces the stress of influence in the finance department in making any decisions. Furthermore, this method avoids conflict of interest among any parties.

For a Start-Up to grow and prosper, the accounting team should be the secret weapon used to conquer.

3. Keep A Tracking Method For Logistics.

In the start of an organization, resources may be scarce and keeping track of all the incoming and outgoing logistics may proof to be a challenge. In the 80’s bookkeepers and secretaries used to handle the noting down and the tagging of all logistics, however often time human errors proved to be greater. This has led to many losses, misunderstandings, disappointments and demises of progressive start-ups in the past.

However, over the years, technology has become better with the formation of apps and tools that help track your logistics in your office. You will be able to organize all your logistics, from the borrowed to the bought and to the sold, reducing your risks of running into any human error.

Furthermore, this reduces the burden on your team, which could utilize this time in an efficient manner. Why use unnecessary labor if you have technology to make your life easier.

4. Be a Delegation Master.

In a company, the beginning is as extreme as walking through a tornado. However having a team isn’t as easy as being a solo-prenuer. As a solo-prenuer you’re entirely responsible for yourself, you aren’t in the jeopardy of deciding over others lives or their livelihood hence it takes the stress out of running your own business.

For any entrepreneur, in the start, the ability to trust and the ability to delegate would seem to be a challenge. This is because we are used to hovering over everyone and having a hands on approach. However, delegation of tasks and keeping track of them is a necessary factor as it shows the trust you put in your team as well as allows you to focus on far more important tasks.

“It’s all about the delegation” has become the motto many live by as a way to understand the importance of teamwork and sustainability.

It’s easier said than done, starting out in a field often times becomes a challenge however with these tips it definitely becomes easier to organize your Start-Up as well as to encourage it to a greater success and expand its potential.

How to Quit Your Boring Life and Start Living an Interesting One

How to Quit Your Boring Life and Start Living an Interesting One

Think you have a boring life?

The definition of boring is dull or not interesting. Maybe you’ve been doing the same thing and living the same life for too long, or maybe your daily routine is limiting your growth and happiness. Whatever your reason is, the following list of 20 things can definitely make any day more interesting. Some of them are silly, while some are more meaningful, so hopefully just reading the list makes your life less boring and sparks your creativity.

Let’s dive in the list to quit your boring life and start living an interesting (and meaning) one!

1. Channel Your 7-Year-Old Self

What would he or she want to do right now? Color? Paint? Run around outside? Play dress up? Eat with your hands? Play that instrument hiding in the back of your closet that you haven’t touched in years?

Just because you’re a grown up doesn’t mean any of this stuff will be less enjoyable than you remember it. Give yourself permission to play.

2. Go Play with Kids

Speaking of little kids, if you have your own or access to any (in a non-creepy way, like they’re your niece or your best friend’s kid, you get the idea) go play with them!

They didn’t create an entire show called Kids Say The Darndest Things because kids aren’t hilarious. They also keep things so simple, and we can really stand to be reminded of this and stop allowing ourselves to get bogged down in boring details.

3. Order a Hot Dog

While you’re eating it, Google: “What’s in a hot dog?” You decide whether or not you want to finish it.

4. For the Ladies: Wear Your Sexiest Lingerie Under Your Work Clothes

Your “little secret” will leave you feeling anything but boring all day!

5. Play Cell Phone Roulette

You’ll need at least one buddy for this. Scroll through the contacts in your phone, stop on a random one and call the person.

You could spark an incredible catch up session or be incredibly awkward. Neither are boring.

6. Fill out a Pack of Thank-You Cards

Give them to random people who probably don’t get thanked too often for doing what they do ever day.

Ideas: police officers, librarians, servers, baristas, cab drivers, sanitation workers, teachers, people behind any check out counter, receptionists, your friends, the guy at the falafel stand, etc.

7. Sign up for a Class in Something You’ve “Always Wanted to Do”, or Something That Makes You Really Uncomfortable

Ideas: pole dancing, salsa lessons, improv, pottery, cooking, knitting (yup, there are classes for this, too!), karate, boxing, something techy like the workshops they run in Apple stores, get Rosetta Stone and learn that language you’ve always wanted to speak, etc.

What’s good about joining an interest class is that you will also meet new people!

8. Interview Your Grandparents About Their Lives

You can bet they’ve had some crazy experiences you probably never knew about.

9. Get up on Stage at an Open Mic Night

Whether you’re funny or not, get up on stage and just talk funny. And if you’re not, memorize a few of your favorite jokes and tell those!

10. Do Something for Someone Else That You Wish Someone Would Do for You

We all have a few ideas on this list. I promise you will feel amazing after and anything but bored.

11. Start a DIY Project in Your Home

It doesn’t have to be super complicated. If you need ideas, there’re plenty on Pinterest. Or you can also check out these 30 Awesome DIY Projects that You’ve Never Heard of.

12. Plan a Weekend Trip or an All-Out Vacation

This will give you something to look forward to.

Even if you don’t have the time or money to go on a vacation, plan for a staycation, which is same fun and relaxing!

13. People Watch

Find a bench in a crowded area (centers of transportation like airports, bus stops and train stations are great for this!) and just observe.

People are infinitely interesting.

14. Eat Something You’ve Never Eaten Before

Bonus points if it’s a random fruit or veggie.

15. Dance

You can get your friends together for a night on the town or just pull up a video on YouTube and bust a move from your own living room.

If you’re feeling extra brave, you can even dance in public and get other people involved.

16. Go to YOUTUBE and Search “Funny Pets” or “Funny Babies”

This is also a great quickie ab workout as you will be laughing hysterically.

17. Pick up a Book and Start Reading

Check out the NY Times Best Sellers lists and grab a new book you can get lost in.

18. Step Away from the Computer and Go Get Some Time with People You Care About in Real Life

Facebook stalking doesn’t count as real social interaction. You can even share this post with your friends and vote on which one you’d like to do together!

19. Check out a Museum You’ve Never Been to Before

OK, depending on your interests, this one might actually be boring. If you love learning, art or different cultures though, this one is for you!

20. Write a List of Things You Desire and Truly Want

This is a great way to help you figure out the real reason why you’re feeling bored about your life. Maybe you haven’t really done things that you truly enjoy? Maybe what you’ve wanted to do all the time has been left behind?

Think about the list of things you really want to do, and ask yourself why you aren’t doing these things (yet). Then start taking your first step to make what you want happen.

Now go make your life interesting and live your dream life!
