Tuesday’s Tips — No Time to Work ON the Business!
How many entrepreneurs, CEOs, and leaders feel so stressed out that they can’t seem to work on the business? If you’re one of them, don’t worry, you’re not alone. With everything a leader has to manage, it can be hard to even find time to think!
It doesn’t matter what size you are. Bill hears this same problem across all industries, company sizes, and revenues. If you just can’t find the time to work on the business, Bill knows how to help!
One of Bill’s clients always seemed to be putting out fires within the business and had absolutely zero time to work with Bill after setting their quarterly goals and expectations. They couldn’t move the needle within the company. This is a big warning sign that the business is not sustainable.
You have to be proactive with your meeting rhythms. It’s critical team members meet regularly to talk about their next steps. Set a recurring meeting time for the entire team and make sure no one double books or prioritizes something else over it. There will always be fires you’ll want to put out, but by setting these consistent rhythms, you’ll actually be able to work on having fewer fires, not more!
