Use Creative Delegating

June 10th, 2010

                   

By now you understand that in order to work less and make more, you’ll have to delegate. Your job is to focus the majority of your time on the high-payoff activities that best use your talents and feed your passion. What about all the other stuff that needs to get done? Those things can be delegated to motivated, trustworthy people who’ll do them better than you anyway.

I know what you’re thinking. You’re just at the beginning of your Work Less, Make More journey, and you’re budget won’t allow for extra support. How are you supposed to delegate if you can’t afford to?

Eliminate-Delegate-Automate

June 10th, 2009

                                       

If you’ve been following the Work Less, Make More program, you’ve learned how to prioritize your tasks and focus on the projects that really matter. These are the high-payoff activities. These are the things that stir passion in your soul, make life worth living, and put you on the road to success.

Of course, there are a lot of other things I’ve asked you to put on the shelf for the time being. These are the small things. Nevertheless, you’re probably worried about these things, because they aren’t getting done.

Play the Priority Game

June 1st, 2009

                                        

Prioritizing is a big part of working more and making less. Most people are bombarded with things to do every day. They find themselves moving quickly from one task to the next, from that task to another, all day long. When you’re in that kind of cycle, it’s hard to really get going on any one thing. Your mind is jumping from one thing to the next.

What does it mean to prioritize? It means doing the most important things first.

Clean Off Your Plate

May 26th, 2009

                                       

We all do things we don’t like to do. Things that clutter up our days. And there are many reasons why these things stay on our schedules. You might spend as much as half your time at work doing things you hate doing—and aren’t good at to boot—just because they need to be done. Or maybe you spend a few hours a week of your free time volunteering at the local animal shelter. You don’t really like the work, but you think it’s the right thing to do.

Blurring The Boundaries With Your BlackBerry

September 26th, 2008

                     

 

It’s hard to imagine life before the BlackBerry. Though it was introduced just nine years ago, 13 million people now use this device to stay connected in the Information Age. The fact is, many people are too connected, literally keeping their BlackBerrys with them 24/7.

 

For many of my coaching clients, over-dependence on technology is an ongoing topic in our coaching sessions. Here are a few of the comments they’ve made:

Create and Enjoy Magic Moments

September 15th, 2008

                   

Last weekend, my daughter Carly and I enjoyed a “magic moment” together.

 

“What’s a magic moment?” you ask? For me, it’s a special experience with someone close to me that I will remember for the rest of my life.

 

A magic moment can be big, like our family vacation last summer in Europe. We visited Germany, Austria, and France. It was a truly special time for our family.

The Power of Three

August 26th, 2008

                   

One of the keys to Working Less, Making More is focus. Today, I want you to focus on your three highest value activities. For now, forget the other stuff.

Take out a piece of paper, and write down your three highest value activities. These are things that you are good at (your Brilliance), that only you can do in your business, and that are important to the success of your business or career. Imagine what would happen if you all your time focused on those three activities, and delegated everything else to others in your organization.
