My guess is that you’re real busy right now. But are you busy working on the correct things ?
Are you wrapped up working on the challenges of the day, when as the leader you should be working on what’s important to your business six to twelve months from now ?
My tip for you this week is to get out from under today’s challenges and begin to spend your time on your business; 3-months, 6-months and 12 months out.
Look at the pile of things you’re working on today and ask yourself; “Who else could be working on this instead of me?”
Delegate and make the necessary calendar adjustments to put yourself in a position to spend most of your time ‘in front’ of your business, instead of spending your time ‘in’ your business.
Don’t get me wrong, spending time ‘in’ your business is important … but it should be a smaller percentage of your time than the time spent ‘on’ your business.
Another way to look at it is … are you managing or leading ?
