Sweating The Small Stuff Is A Waste Of Time


Are you constantly tending to one thing after another in running your small business? Do things slip through the cracks and not get done on time because you are juggling so many things at once? Is your workday getting longer and longer trying to get everything done? Determining where to focus your time, and more importantly, where not to spend time, is a critical success factor in running a successful small business.

If you’re a small business owner I don’t have to tell you about the mountain of “to do’s” you are faced with every day. What I can tell you is that not all of your to do’s are equal in the value they produce for your business. Prioritizing the ones that have to get done, things that can wait for tomorrow or next week, and tasks that if they aren’t done won’t really matter, is a simple way to determine where to spend your time.

Taking time each week to document your tasks, then prioritizing them based upon their importance and urgency, will help you focus your time on more important activities. Eliminating all the things that don’t have to get done right away will also free up more of your time to spend on your top priorities.

Prioritizing your tasks and activities will help you spend your precious time on the right things at the right time. You’ll get more done and achieve better results. Sweating the small stuff is a waste of time!
