Do you ever find yourself at the end of yet another hectic day, looking back and wondering what you’ve actually achieved? There’s no question you were busy, but did you move your business forwards? Did you take another step towards your long-term goals? Or will you be starting from the same place tomorrow, having to do it all over again?
Ask any business owner what their biggest challenge is and they’ll probably tell you it’s that there simply aren’t enough hours in the day for them to do everything they need to do. The reality though, is that a lot of business owners spend far too much time getting involved with what’s urgent – the day to day challenges, and too little addressing what’s important – those things that will help the business realise its real potential.
Even if you recognise the problem, breaking out of the routine, finding a way to avoid getting caught up in the minutiae of ‘urgent’ tasks that suck up your time can seem impossible. It’s a vicious cycle, and the more your energy and willpower are sapped, the less likely you are to be able to change things.
If this all sounds depressingly familiar, never fear! In our upcoming workshop on Friday 16th June, ActionCOACH David Haimes will explain how successful entrepreneurs discipline themselves to focus their time on what’s important – as opposed to what’s urgent.
David says: “Many business owners rush around doing things they perceive to be urgent, but in most instances, these are things that won’t help the business develop long term. The biggest realisation for the people I work with is that the things that will really add value to their business such as strategy, planning, recruitment, building systems and developing processes are not urgent – but they’re vitally important, and if a business is to grow, the owner needs to dedicate quality time to areas like these.”
Who should attend?
If you’re an ambitious business owner, and feel frustrated that despite all the effort you’re putting in, you never seem to get any closer to your goals, this workshop is definitely for you.
It doesn’t matter what kind of business you run, what sector you’re in, or what size your company is – the principles David will talk about are just as applicable to a one-man business as they are to someone heading up a multi-million pound organisation.
What will you learn?
In this workshop, David will teach you how to make best use of that most precious commodity of all – time. He’ll explain how you can break the cycle of putting your energy into the ‘wrong’ tasks, and show you how to identify and focus on activities that will make a real, tangible difference. You will walk away with valuable tools and techniques you can implement immediately to help you grow your business and take it to where you want to go.
