How to have more time for strategy
We’ve all heard someone say (or even said ourselves) ‘there are not enough hours in the day’ or ‘I wish I had a clone to help me with this work’. We don’t have the solution for cloning, however, we can help with having more time.
We hear many of their clients tell us they wish they had more time for their business. We help clients identify the right areas to focus on, so they can be investing in strategy, resulting in time (and money) savings.
3 Quick PR Tips:
1. Swallow a toad in the morning, and nothing will taste worse for the rest of the day. While this thought may be a difficult visual, we’re here to assure you it’s meaning holds true. Solving the most challenging problems early in the day allows you to focus on what is most important. Don’t let trivial emails, conversations or questions get in the way.
2. Think strategy. To really get the results you desire you must think strategically. Take time (which sounds counterproductive) to analyze the most important areas of your business and how they can be addressed. Often, we realize there is an excess of time and/or resources spent on initiatives that don’t match up with the strategic end-goal.
3. Set boundaries. This one can be tough for some people; however, you must protect what is important. We see many clients tell us that they don’t have time to spend on marketing (initially) however, they want their organization to grow. By setting boundaries, time limits, allowances for distractions, time to check emails and work parameters, you can actually save time by organizing boundaries.
