In trying to focus on what’s most important in your business, it’s the day-to-day stuff that offers the biggest potential for distraction. In this episode I drill down into what it means to stay focused on the most essential elements for the growth of your business as you work in your business on a daily basis.
What You Should Be Doing While Working In Your Business
Here are three tips for managing your day-to-day involvement with your business, while still keeping what’s most important at the forefront:
- What will have the biggest impact on your business growth, goals, and objectives. Perry Marshal shares the idea of time that’s worth tens, hundreds, or thousands of dollars an hour. As the owner you should be spending as much time as possible on the highest leverage activities in your business.
- Stay in your Zone of Genius. In deciding where you can have the most impact in your business it’s important for you to know where you are uniquely qualified to add the most value – and stay there!
- You need to be the one driving the ship. If you started the business it will always be tempting for you to revert to what got you where you are. The problem is that’s not necessarily what will get you where you want to be. As the owner, you need to make sure that you don’t get pulled down into the weeds and that you keep control of setting the direction and strategy for the company.
