Feeling busy and still not seeing the results you want?
Why do you think that is?
One of the biggest challenges early stage entrepreneurs face is lack of time.
There’s so much we need to get done.
Marketing, Sales, Client management, Service delivery, Systemising the business, recruiting and managing staff and freelancers, managing suppliers, setting the strategic direction of the business and 100 other things.
The reality is we can’t get more time to do everything to our desired standard, we have to prioritise.
What do you give your time to?
If you are like most entrepreneurs, you spent most of your time on the urgent stuff.
And there is always urgent stuff – some of it is urgent and important, but some of it is just urgent.
But what about the important, non-urgent tasks?
Things like setting a strategy for your business, refreshing your value proposition and updating your website, documenting your processes and implementing the technology you’ve been meaning to for the last couple of years?
The important non-urgent tasks get often pushed aside till later. As a result you might be wasting your limited resources (especially your time) on the stuff that doesn’t really move the needle and you keep running on the hamster treadmill.
The truly important tasks that have got the power to transform your business require time. They might feel a bit overwhelming in size and often lie outside of your comfort zone. But until you action those, your business won’t move to the next level.
Mastermind groups are an effective tool to carve out the time to regularly work ON your business. They give you clarity and focus and provide you with extra level of commitment and accountability.
