I can do it… All By Myself

by Michelle on April 20, 2009

Wow! Overwhelmed with your to do list? overwhelmed-help

Don’t have one because you don’t know where to start? This is one of the most common issues small business owners face. Sure, you have it all in your head but, you remember stuff every time you get in the car, sit down to relax or try to go to sleep at night.

This is a time management issue.

Lets look at our to do list:

Which things on here can SOMEBODY ELSE do?

Yes, you are going to have to pay them. Look at it this way, this is what they are good at and that is why they are able to do it for you.

How much is your time worth?

It will take you at least twice as long as someone else who is a specialist to do that job.  This lets you do something else that is on your to do list that you are more equipped to do.  Now, you have completed two things on your to do list in ½ the time and for ½ the cost.

Is it to hard to get someone else to do something for you because they don’t know your business and how you do things?

Invest your time once to teach them, as they are a specialist you should not have to do it again. Now, you should be on track to not having to do that horrible thing that you are no good at again. You will have the benefit of the completed information and this could be something you need to do another task on your list.baby-contruction-ladder1

All of these are what I call Baby Steps,

As soon as you get started on them they become history,

You are less stressed and accomplishing

You are taking control of your business.
