Being More Productive in 15 Minutes a Day

Being More Productive in 15 Minutes a Day

Your day has 1,440 minutes in it, so what difference will 15 minutes make? At just over 1 percent of those potentially available minutes, it seems like no time at all. For starters, it’s long enough to get something done, and short enough to make sure you can chisel it out of your schedule.

If you’re prepared, you’ll be surprised to find you can get more done in 15 minutes than you can in an entire afternoon.

Balancing Your Time

Balancing Your Time

“You’re my #1 customer,” says workaholic Howard Langston in the 1996 film Jingle All the Way. It may be a phrase that works wells for Langston’s clients, but it’s not what his wife wants to hear when she calls him at the office to ask why he’s not attending the graduation ceremony for his son’s karate class.  Like many of us, Langston is passionate about his work, but even when we’re passionate, we still need balance.

An interesting real-life example of devotion to business and family to the professed exclusion of all else is Carlos Brito, 55-year-old Brazilian CEO of InBev, which took over Anheuser-Busch in 2008. If you are a GKIC member, read about him in the January 2016 No B.S. Newsletter. If not, check out Fortune.com’s interview here.

Delegating Your Taxing Tasks

Delegating Your Taxing Tasks

“I wish they made days that had more than 24 hours in them so I can get all of this done.” If you find yourself saying this too often, it may be time to delegate some of the responsibility for running your business. Though it’s tempting to want to keep your finger on the pulse of every little detail, it becomes more and more difficult as the business grows. If you haven’t seen the recent movie, The Intern, with Anne Hathaway and Robert DeNiro, check it out as an example.

Trying to be everything to everyone can leave you unfocused. You may end up forgetting deadlines or glossing over details because you have so many other things on your plate. You may even be forced to re-do some of your work, adding another job to your ever-growing list. By assigning less executive-level or more routine tasks to others, you free up more time to use on the core aspects of your business.
