"Don't confuse activity with productivity. Many people are simply busy being busy."
- Robin S. Sharma
I talk to countless entrepreneurs and business owners every week.
One of the phrases I hear more than any other is
"I don't have time."
I call B.S.
You have time.
You just spend it doing the wrong things.
Like blocking off an entire 30 minute meeting for something that could take 7 minutes.
What would happen if you turned every 30 minute meeting into a 7 minute meeting and highly encouraged people to show up prepared to get the most out of that conversation?
Would your team operate differently?
Would you get more done in your day?
Remember, the aim is not be busy, but to produce value for those invested in us.
Our customers, our teams, our families.
I encourage you to bring the 7 minute meeting mentality to your work this week.
Where are you wasting time?
Bring a magnifying glass to your systems and look for ways to improve so you can produce more this week.
Be both efficient and effective with the time you've been given.
You have more than enough, if only you choose to use it wisely.
"Focus on being productive instead of busy."
- Tim Ferriss
