Here are some specific strategies for you to consider:
a) Who to spend time with? You need to consider spending BUSINESS TIME on
only those who are going to contribute to your bottom line and goal
All else needs to get put into the "we'll get back to you" pile. It is easy
to get locked up with people that do nothing but take up your time. Don't do
I constantly have people wanting to meet with me, talk with me, etc. that
don't contribute to the achievement of my goals they get put on the bottom
of the pile and sometimes I never get back to them.
b) Keeping away from time vampires. Time vampires are those that call you,
come into your office, and tell you the "whole story" constantly. You need
to politely tell these people "adios". You ever notice that you have those
days where you have a lot of activity and by the end of the day you really
have not gotten anything done? Time vampires are the main reason why.
c) Having a clear objective in the first place. What are your goals, your
objectives?? Where do you want to end up? How do you plan on getting there?
Without a plan you will be spinning your wheels and the cash flow and value
of your will suffer because of it.
So, there you go. We did not reinvent anything today, but it is surprising
how the use of your time is tied to your income and the results you want.
