Our time is so valuable. How it is used determines integral outcomes in our life. There is “never enough time in the day,” is an old adage whose meaning becomes more realistic daily. Thus, we need a plan, particularly when our utilization (of time) determines our income. What’s primary; what’s secondary? How do we make those determinations? As an entrepreneur, making a daily plan makes sense. Four questions / commands of relevancy may determine how our business grows.
1. What tasks make money now?
2. What tasks make money in the future?
3. Schedule money making tasks everyday.
4. Delegate tasks that need to be done, but not necessarily by you.
In quick simplistic terms, the answer as I see it, is a what and a how. What can bring in the $$$ now, in the future; and how will it be accomplished. Time management is a science with our utilization of same equating to outcomes … with generation of revenue being one. How we spend our time – directly and indirectly – determines how much money is in our pockets! What is our next step? There may be many. Hiring a full time employee may not be financially affordable, but support – be it virtual or a consultant – may be an avenue to explore.
Many of us learn by example. Oddly, some of us can’t resist learning the hard way. We may insist on experimenting with the “bought sense vs. learnt sense” hypothesis. With quantitative and qualitative measurements, eventually, we will learn that we cannot do it all … by ourselves. When that realization clicks, we will “be in the money!” Green is such a spendable and vibrant color! Get started planning the “how’s” and “what’s” of your day! I am! “The early bird catches the most worms!”
