I’ve been speaking to many business owners since the beginning of the year…
And only two week into the year there’s a common theme that is coming through…they can already see that this year will be the same as last…
Filled with ‘Stuff”…but achieving ‘Stuff All’..
Most Business owners are too busy being technician’s in their business and as I’ve mentioned many many times before…Great Businesses aren’t built by Great Technicians…they’re Built by Great Strategists..
So here’s some strategies to help you get more time in your day..
6 Key Strategies
1.Do’t Work 4 Work Sake!
2.Slow down: Most Things Make No Difference
3.Our culture tends to reward personal sacrifice instead of personal productivity…productivity…FOCUS ON RESULTS NOT TIME
4.Usually what we most fear doing is what we most need to do
5.Inaction is the greatest risk of all…measure the COST of inaction
6.Be EFFECTIVE NOT efficient…
‘A task will swell in (perceived) importance and complexity in relation to
the time allotted for its completion’…
It’s The magic of a Deadline…
Your Key Implementation Strategy:
- Identify The Few Urgent & Important Activities
- That Contribute Most To Income
- Schedule Them With Very Short And
- Clear Deadlines…
Go On A Low-Information Diet..
Herbert Simon won a Nobel Prize in 1978…here’s what he had to say..
“it is impossible to have perfect and complete information at any given time to make a decision” – Herbert Simon, Nobel Prize Winner 1978
- Most information is time consuming, negative, irrelevant to your goals and outside of your influence
- The key to having more time is doing less
- Simplicity requires ruthlessness
- Ask yourself daily: “if this is the only thing I accomplish today, will it make a big difference to my goals for this quarter?”
- Don’t invent things to do to avoid the urgent and important
- If you prioritise properly there is no need to multitask…
Planning is Fantasy…Implementation is the Key…
