You’ve heard it before…we all have 24 hours in a day, 168 hours per week.
You hear from other business owners how busy they are; how they don’t have time for family outings, or activities that truly fill them with joy.
You might even tell yourself that you don’t have time for __________ (you fill in the blank).
So why does this happen?
How is it that some business owners find the time for certain activities and others just can’t seem to?
The answer is…
Yup… Something called ‘you get to choose how you live your life’!
You get to choose how to build your business – not the other way around!
Over the years, I’ve worked with so many frazzled business owners who have allowed their businesses to evolve to the point where they feel they have NO CHOICE.
But one of the goals of my Business Accelerator program is that these frazzled business owners transform themselves into highly-effective CEOs where they have the choice about where and how they spend their time.
In fact, one of the benchmarks is that they spend less than 30% of their time actually delivering their program/product/service!!! Yes, that means if they are an accountant – they spend less than 30% of their time doing accounting or a lawyer spends less than 30% of their time performing legal duties.
So you might ask, what do they do with the rest of their time?
They LEAD their business!
- They spend time growing themselves.
- They spend time overseeing the growth of their company according to their Vision.
- They spend time teaching others.
- They spend time thinking.
YES – thinking.
Thinking time is when highly effective CEOs develop their own ‘thought leadership’ (a term I feel is thrown around like confetti but that means creating, developing and sharing their own unique point of view!).
In this week’s podcast, episode 101 here, I share what I call the ‘5 W’s of Thought Leadership’ – including why you MUST create, develop and share YOUR own thought leadership.
It’s your choice!!!
YOU CAN DO THIS
