We all have the same 24 hours in each day but how we USE those same 24 hours will determine your level of success. Have you ever analysed what tasks you accomplish during the day, especially on those days where you question where the day went and wished you had an extra eight hours to finish your to-do list?
Knowing where you spend your time is part of the equation for success.
When you’re first starting your business it makes sense that you want to watch your budget and not hire any outside help. After all, you need to make money before you spend money, right?
Do-it-yourself business owners take on every task that deals with sales, marketing, billing, and operations, plus everything else that doesn’t fall into those categories. But if you’re working on closing a sale, it stands to reason that you don’t have the time to develop a strong marketing campaign or to create content for your website or social media channels.
Do-it-yourselfers are stretched too thin and become an expert at nothing. Very often these business owners feel like they are always behind, like they’re always playing catch up with what their clients need and trying to salvage those relationships instead of forging the way to bring in new business.
CEOs know they can’t do everything themselves. They see grand plans for the future of the business and know what their own strengths and weaknesses are.
They seek out expert advisers, coaches, and assistants to handle the myriad tasks involved in the backend of the business so they can dedicate their time to finding building relationships that help them multiply their income and impact, while their team handles their own areas of expertise.
Of course you can!
And it starts with a change in your mindset. It’s the first part of our own personal operating system that we need to optimise.
With mindset, it’s oftentimes easier to work with someone who can help you get past your blindspots to identify the reasons why you need to do everything yourself and perhaps look at your fears around receiving support.
You’ll also need to analyse your backend operations and look at ways to automate certain tasks or to delegate admin and technical work that’s keeping you from doing what only you can you.
This is where a lot of business owners get stuck. We recommend “unpacking your business” to identify all the various tasks that are required to keep your business running smoothly.
In the process you’ll also uncover the different roles required so that you can start to decide what to automate and what to delegate.
Think of how much time you will save if some of the tasks you’ve been doing can be automated or outsourced. You will definitely see faster growth in your business.
It’s not unusual for our clients to 2-3x their business whilst using our team to free up their own time to focus on higher value activities.
