What is a recurring task?
Forgetting about your company’s recurring tasks is dangerous, and can put your business in an awkward position if it happens too often. That’s because recurring tasks make up the most important core set of activities.
They’re the duties in your team that you know you’re going to have to do regularly:
- Proof a weekly newsletter
- Turn in taxes
- Schedule performance reviews
Traditionally, this would be managed with a calendar, Outlook, or the shaky memory of whoever’s turn it is to remind the group.
Managing recurring tasks in those kinds of ways isn’t ideal and it has got the job done for businesses of the past, but there are smarter ways that help you conserve brain energy, organize your team’s work effectively and make sure you’re on top of deadlines.
After all, your team all trying to remember what they’ve got to do on Monday morning is enough to get them crawling back to bed with a headache.
