Raise your hand if you’re a high-achieving entrepreneur who is overwhelmed by all there is to do to grow your business? Between meetings, emails, social media, phone calls, blogs, and requests for help, it’s a miracle you’re able to get to the projects that matter most to your business…until now.
Here’s a simple solution that guarantees you’ll have more time to devote to business growth initiatives that matter — apply limits to everything you do. That’s it! No hidden secret. No skill required. Nothing to download.
For instance, if email is eating through your day, set limits to check email twice a day for 15 minutes. That’s it. Set a timer, if you must, but don’t leave it open-ended or you’ll be stuck in your inbox!
How about setting limits on meetings? Most people talk about what a waste of time they are. Rather than spread a 15-minute agenda across 45 minutes, limit the time assigned. Everyone will be more focused and the meeting more productive. Plus, you’ll have a gift of 30 minutes to advance your strategic plan.
I know what you’re thinking! Before you say, “you can’t”, promise to try this simple solution for one week. Put time limits on the activities that are eroding your business success.
You’ll accomplish more than you realize is possible.
