I find that thing I am most likely to get done in any given day is the thing that is on my mind when I first wake up and think, “What have I got to get done today?” That thing may or may not be the right thing but this is for sure: I can’t focus on more than two or three important tasks in any given time. Everything else becomes noise.
When the entrepreneurs I work with become overwhelmed, it’s usually because there is the sinking feeling they can’t do it all.
NEWSFLASH: You can’t!!!!!!
First start, and keep, a “STOP doing” list. Not everything you do is as important is you might think.
Then delegate. You are not the only person in the world that can do everything. If it’s repetitive, hire someone or outsource it.
The E-Myth reminded us to stop working “IN” the business so we can work “ON” the business.
