With the limited time you have available, how can you pack the limited time for your business full of productivity?
- PLAN YOUR WORK- knowing ahead of time exactly what you need to accomplish in your focused work time is required to be able to make the most of the time you have.“Every minute you spend in planning, saves 10 minutes in execution.” – Brian Tracy
Even if it’s saving 5 minutes of execution for every minute you spend planning, that’s a great way to multiply your time.
- SCHEDULE THE TIME- Schedule your power hour at your peak mental time and when there are fewer distractions around. If you schedule a power hour around dinner time when everyone needs something from you, it is not going to create the best results. Can you get up before everyone else and work with a fresh mind? Or are you able to get your best work done when everyone else is asleep?
