Have you ever heard this?
I just don't have time to do the things that I know I want to do - and need to do - in the business.
Well one coaching firm heard it so many times they decided to launch a comprehensive study on time management. They interviewed and surveyed small business owners and their key executives in order to learn how they spend their time and, particularly, where their time gets wasted.
They weren’t the first as The Harvard Business Review reported on a Covey Center for Leadership study that the average business leader works a 72-hour week. So the age of the 40-hour workweek has gone.
Meanwhile, in a joint poll, Gallup found that 57% of small business owners work six days a week. And over 20% of them work seven days a week.
But it doesn't have to be that way. Because you can achieve more while working less.
In the time management study, it found that managers and leaders we're wasting 21.8 wasted each week -- hours that while doing things contributed little to no value to the company.
So, we want to challenge you to ask yourself how much time you waste on activities? How would you like to better structure your day, your week, and your quarter so that more of your best attention goes to those things that matter?
In our one-day Masterclass ‘Making the Most of Your Time’ we examine ways you can improve your productivity and resources so you can increase the opportunities to work less and achieving more.
