My goal is to spend 80% of my time on the tasks that are going to bring me in the greatest results.
I focus on 3 main areas in my business;
1. Creating and distributing content
2. Creating and delivering new courses / current course content
3. Networking & building relationships
So over the course of a week, I'm constantly looking for ways to get the greatest results in any one of these 3 areas.
If I catch myself spending time doing anything that takes me away from these, then I start to look at how I can systemise and outsource the task I am doing.
However, sometimes life gets in the way and you can get to the end of a whole day or week and realise you've achieved nothing!
That's why it's important to not only plan the week ahead but also review the week behind, so you can highlight some weaknesses and make a note of how you can change / outsource or improve on those areas moving forward.
Remember, you want to spend 80% of your time doing the things that are going to get you the greatest results.
Take some time out today and review last week and plan the week ahead.
Decide today what you want to have accomplished by this time next week and then dive headlong into it tomorrow!
