Perform Food Truck Tasks In Three Steps, Not One

Most food truck owners complain about not having enough time to perform their food truck tasks. They rush through tasks so they can move on to the next item on their to-do list. But this kind of haste creates more chaos than it avoids. Instead, approach every food truck task in three parts.

3 Step Process For Food Truck Tasks

  • Think ahead. Spend a minute or two, or even a few seconds, thinking about what you’re going to do before you do it. Ask yourself what you’re trying to accomplish. Finally determine who on your staff should be involved.
  • Do the task. This is the step that everyone seems to jump into. After youve thought ahead, now its time to act.
  • What did you learn? Once you’ve completed your food truck tasks, think about what you did and what resulted. What did you learn? What will you do differently?

Being thoughtful allows you to accomplish more with each task. You may not be crossing things off your food truck’s to-do list faster, but you’ll find you have more control over the results.

Additional Tips: Keep it your food truck tasks to-do list simple. Your task list should have no more than three things on it for a given day. Some of the most highly successful people I know only allow one item on their to do list each day. This is where the rubber meets the road on focus and prioritization. If you could only do one thing today to move your food truck business forward, what would that thing be? Make this the number one item on your to do list. Write your to do list the night before. This helps you start your day with clarity. You know exactly which item you need to complete.

How do you complete your food truck tasks? Do you simply jump to the task or do you think about it before and after? Share your thoughts on this subject in the comment section or on social media. Facebook | Twitter
