5 Steps To Spend Less Time At Work

I know you love your business, and you love spending time building it up and working toward your vision. So do I.

But still, you are in it for the long haul, and you don’t want to burn out. As well, like me you want to build a successful business because you are driven to do it and, so that you can find that lifestyle balance to spend with your loved ones. That’s what it’s all about – building your successful business so that you have choices.

So one of those choices is how much time you spend at work. It’s not up to anyone else what’s right for you, but the chances are that however many hours you think is ideal to spend at work and still have that lifestyle choice, you are working more than that.

From my experience working with driven entrepreneurs building their successful businesses, there are 5 steps to take to spend less time at work, and make the time you spend effective.

Begin With The End In Mind

Do you wonder how some people seemingly rack up win after win, complete project after project, apparently unswayed by detail and interruption?

Have you watched these people achieve goal after goal exactly as they set out to do and wondered what their secret was?

It’s because they set out with a very clear objective, and vision of what the end looks like. Stephen Covey (The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People) called it his second habit “Begin with the end in mind.”

If you have a very clear picture of what the end should look like, it resolves so many problems along the way. If you know exactly what you want at the end, the answers to questions about detail like “who should be involved,” or “who do we hire out of these choices,” or “which option is the best” all become clear because you know exactly who you need in your team to put it together because of the skills you need; what type of person to hire to best suit the way it is to be managed at the end; and which option – despite the cost – best meets your objectives most efficiently.

A vision of the end not only sets the goals, but because you are so clear on what it looks like, also establishes the correct process of getting there, because anything that doesn’t or isn’t likely to get you to exactly the right place is out. Read More

Plan On A Page

It’s late January – are you still keeping track of your New Year’s Resolutions?

Making resolutions is great. Making resolution sets goals, and if you are clear about your goals they become possible. But in order to make those goals real, you need plans. Once you have plans, you need to work on them – every day!

It’s the same for your business. Set your goals, make your plans – then, how do you keep them front of mind before you get lost in all the little things you have to do?

Build Value In Your Business By Going Away For Three Months!

Has the title of this week’s article got your attention?

Like many entrepreneurs and small business owners you are probably struggling with your work-life balance, right? You are working long hours, sometimes weekends, when you go on vacation you can’t help feeling the guilt, your phone or tablet is always on and always calling for your attention even at all hours of the night. Yet the reason you started your own business, apart from the passionate belief in what you are doing is…getting time to do what you want.

Just stop for 10 minutes (yes, you can!). Ask yourself why you aren’t able to find that “life” part of the balance. Do these reasons sound familiar?

  • I need to really pour myself into this to make enough money at the moment
  • I’m really busy because I can’t afford someone else to do some of the work
  • It’s all in my head so I can’t let go
  • I haven’t broken through financially yet
  • I’m ultimately responsible
  • As I expand there’s even more work to do
  • Only I can do it
  • There’s just so much to do
  • The work comes with success

Think about those reasons just for a minute. They all come down to the fact that there seems to be a lot to do and you are the only one available or capable of doing it. Read More
