The Sneaky Cost of Those "Quick" Tasks
Picture this: You’ve worked out that, based on your big dreams and goals, your time’s worth about $190 an hour. Now, think about those tasks you dive into without a second thought.
Maybe it’s tweaking your website, getting lost in your inbox, or handling customer chats.
If you’re sinking three hours into tasks someone else could do for, say, $30 an hour, it’s not just costing you $90.
Nope, you’re actually missing out on a whopping $570 (3 hours x $190) of potential growth for your business.
Grace's Go-To Tips for Making Every Hour Count
List It Out: Start by creating a comprehensive list of your weekly tasks. This might sound basic, but it’s eye-opening. From those 10-minute email checks that add up to hours, to the time spent on admin tasks, jot it all down. This exercise isn’t just about tracking time; it’s about understanding where your energy goes. Once you have this list, categorize tasks based on their importance and the expertise they require.
Do the Math: Now, let’s get a bit analytical. If you’ve determined your time’s worth $190 an hour, compare that to the tasks on your list. Are you spending hours on tasks that don’t contribute to that value? This isn’t just about direct revenue but also tasks that build your brand, foster relationships, or drive long-term growth.
Big Wins First: Prioritize tasks that have the most significant impact. For me, it’s always been about strategy development, nurturing partnerships, and those pivotal sales calls. These are tasks that not only drive immediate revenue but also lay the groundwork for future growth.
Pass the Baton: Delegation is an art. It’s about recognizing that while you can do many tasks, it doesn’t mean you should. Identify tasks that can be handled by others without compromising on quality. This could be admin work, basic tech tasks, or even content creation. By delegating, you’re freeing up your time and allowing others to showcase their expertise.
Guard Your Time: Time boundaries are crucial. Designate specific blocks for tasks like emails or social media. For instance, checking emails twice a day at set times can prevent the constant distraction of incoming messages. It’s about being proactive with your time, not reactive.
Level Up: Embrace tools that streamline processes. Whether it’s automating your social media posts, using AI-driven analytics, or project management tools, technology can be a massive time-saver. And remember, personal growth is vital. Regular training or courses can enhance your skills, making your hours even more potent.
