It’s true- time is money, so ask yourself – “how many hours do I waste in a week?” You’ll be surprised at how many hours get lost with little productivity to show for it.
One way to free up your time is to stop being a ‘yes man’ and start considering what the value is in meetings and appointments before committing to them.
Avoid saying yes out of obligation and begin by asking yourself –
- How long will it take?
- What is the benefit of it?
- Do you need to do it?
If it will benefit you, or serves a need it’s worth committing your time but don’t allow it to be a distraction from urgent matters.
Avoid over committing yourself and if possible delegate to team members if it will benefit your business – place people where they will be most effective.
Increasing your productivity goes hand in hand with building a successful business so committing your time appropriately is the first step.
