You may love it, you may loathe it – but the more important question is:
Do you NEED to do it, or can someone else cover this task so you can focus on managing and growing your business?
“If you don’t have an assistant, you are one” Jack Daly
If you were to list activities you must complete each day and then categorise them into lists in order of importance, you’d see the tasks you must keep – this is your A-List; the tasks only you, as owner and CEO of your business can do.
The tasks that fall in the middle or bottom of your list, these are the B-List and C-List; these are the tasks you should delegate to your team if you have one or outsource.
Picture this, you get bogged down in processing data onto your CRM. It’s taken you two hours to do a thirty-minute job.
Need Help Right Now?
As the business owner you don’t get the luxury of uninterrupted time. You will have clients following up orders, staff looking for guidance and support, emails coming through regarding sales, payroll, suppliers, warm leads… all seeking answers. The phone will be buzzing, the doorbell will ring with a delivery and the list goes on.
Grab those scissors, snip the bottom 5 tasks off the list – hand them to someone else. Your sanity will return. Thank us later!
In case you are undecided…
So, is your time better spent following up warm leads, or should you spend it entering data onto your CRM?
We think the answer to this question is an emphatic YES. Your time is so valuable, don’t choose to spend it completing tasks that can be outsourced.
