In business, you can’t afford to spend your efforts on non-productive tasks. Like the weather, you need to identify exactly how you do the things you do each day. ¿Why is it so important? Because, as I always say, a business is not a hobby.
Your efforts will affect your hours during the day. And your time is money. If you put your efforts into things that won’t end in income, you are wasting time and money. Your hourly income should be added to your yearly figure. If it takes $ 2,300 a week to generate $ 120,000 a year, there is no time to waste on unproductive and unpaid hours. Every day, every hour counts.
Your efforts should focus on productive functions. Efforts and energy are closely related. If you find yourself saying “I don’t have time for productive tasks, or I’m overwhelmed, I can’t do everything I need to do, etc.”, you should go to your paper and pencil and make a list of the things you do during the day.
Then prioritize these tasks on what makes money and what doesn’t. You divide it into 1 hour increments based on 8 hours a day and calculate how many hours you can spend on time you earn and time you don’t. The idea is to get rid of unnecessary activities, minimize office activities, and focus on income-generating and money-making tasks.
For example, if you’re sitting there for an hour entering business cards that you collected at a networking event or reading a magazine article, when you should be writing a new offer or service or an e-course for your prospects or customers to buy. , or make other deals that lead to a sale, then you must delegate it to someone else.
Energy is a lot like effort. The energy also has to be well directed. Your energy is important. You need to identify when it works best. Are you a morning, afternoon, or night person? When you put
What are the most productive activities? Use this awareness to focus on the tasks that are really important or more difficult.
Personally, I am most productive in the morning. Around three in the afternoon, I lose energy. So to keep up with business trends, what I do is take my magazines home and read them on a relaxing evening. Your energy will largely depend on your physical well-being and your health. Therefore, taking care of your health can also be critical to the performance of your business, but this is for another article.
To get the most out of your energy, you need to start developing and practicing good habits (money-making habits, income-generating habits) in your daily business life. Always think of each hour that represents income-generating time. For example, if your time is worth $ 154 an hour, every time you lose 2 hours on any given day, you lose $ 308. The numbers don’t lie!
In the same way, your effort and energy are valued at a price. Identify them and use them to your advantage. Business is always about money, because every hour is money, or you make or lose money, 8 hours a day, 6 days a week, 52 weeks a year. / Dmh
