Do you ever feel like you do a lot of stuff, but it isn’t necessarily productive?
How do you make sure that with all the things you have to do that what you spend your time on isn’t just busy work, and is actually moving you toward your goals?
The thing is that we are all busy, we all have things that need to be done and that keep us busy, whether that is tasks for our businesses, like creating our next program or course, or new opt-in page or what have you. Or tasks like getting the broadband upgraded or balancing our cheque books, keeping our home clean and tidy and looking after our loved ones (this includes ourselves!).
It’s vital if we want to succeed in business and have fulfilling lives and relationships that we use our time wisely.
As Carl Sandberg said time is the coin of our lives and we need to be mindful of how we spend it and avoid other people being able to spending it for you.
Essentially what that means is that we need to prioritise our time so that the tasks that move us to where we want to go get the time they require.
So if we want to succeed in business that might mean prioritising marketing and sales tasks, like going out networking and following up with the contacts you’ve made, over creating a course.
On a day to day basis it means prioritising the tasks that require more concentration and blocking them in first and then filling in the rest of the time with the smaller tasks as and when.
This great video explains it a bit better.
