There are many things to accomplish in one workday and you are driven to get it all done, even if it means multitasking, right? Wrong. Multitasking doesn’t really help get anything done to its fullest extent. It could cause you to forget about tasks or details within certain tasks. Instead, it is best to focus on what work needs to be done to move the needle forward. Set goals for the day, week, month, etc., and create deadlines around it. This way you can focus on making the progress your business needs instead of just keeping busy.
Get Out of the Comfort Zone
Understand that with success you must be comfortable with getting uncomfortable. The only way to grow is to put yourself in unfamiliar situations, whether it be a networking event or pitching your business idea. Think about it, staying in your bubble and accepting stagnant growth will only let you achieve that constricted level of success. You must not let the fear of failure or not feeling worthy enough stop you from achieving your dreams.
Focus on High-Value Tasks
You and your business cannot afford to get caught up in low-level tasks that aren’t doing enough to move your needle forward. This is what creating teams or outsourcing is for. As an entrepreneur and business owner, you must focus on high-value tasks that build your 6- to 7-figure business. Learn to restrict yourself to the work that delivers the absolute best possible ROI on your time. Everything else will have you working in circles.
Be Intentional with the First 90 Minutes of the Day
The first 90 minutes of your day is when you have the most energy and willpower. If you do something meaningless, it’s wasting that creativity and energy boost you have. Be sure to spend it reading a book, planning your day, listening to a podcast, anything but mindless tasks like checking your email or social media.
Have a Creative Outlet
It’s great to be strategic and use your logic in business, but give your mind the freedom to get creative every once in a while. Besides, doing something creative is therapeutic and allows you to express what’s going on inside your mind. You can incorporate painting or writing into your daily breaks, or setting time at the end of the day to unwind with a dance class or gardening. You cannot be on 24/7, so needless to say, there are a lot of health benefits from this.
