Richard Branson (proprietor of the Virgin group of companies if you weren’t aware) is the head of an investment group that consists of over 400 business operations. He is lauded as very successful with his prowess in business, has amassed a self made multibillion dollar fortune and is a creative and entertaining individual to boot.
There are also a lot of business owners who are running one business who get to the end of the week and wonder where the days went. 100% of the time spent working in or worrying about the running of the operation.
So what is the difference between the 2. Richard Branson maybe has some genetic advantage, but he definitely doesn’t have any more time in a week. He just gets granted 168 hours, just like everybody else.
The reality is that time itself does not need managing. It does a great job itself, just ticking away methodically and regularly. No management required.
Yep you guessed it – it is the business owner that needs managing. Not time management. Self management.
Here are a few areas that can unleash massive amounts of productivity. Proven over many years through personal and client experience. In no particular order as some work better for differing personalities.
The aim of the game is to become organised, planned, effective and relaxed. If you are getting to the end of the week and finding yourself in a mess, running around mindlessly and stressed out then something is drastically wrong.
Stop trying to manage time and start managing yourself.
Make it a prosperous week
