This is where we separate the men from the boys.
In productivity terms of course...
For this you will need
- A green pen
- A blue pen
- A red pen
(If you're broke AF and can't afford pens you can always use microsoft word)
On your daily list of tasks to do, you want to do a few things:
1. Any task that directly brings sales/revenue into your business put a green dot next to it.. these are revenue generating activities (e.g. creating ads)
2. Any task that doesn't directly bring sales, but needs to get done put a blue dot next to it (e.g customer service emails)
3. Any task that doesn't directly bring sales, and doesn't need to be done, put a red dot next to it (e.g. posting on Facebook page)
Now what you want to do is very straight forward.
When you start your work day, do the green dot activities first, when you have the most mental bandwidth so you are performing at maximum productivity.
At the end of your work day, do the blue dot activities and get them out of the way.
Finally, the red dot activities, the things that don't bring sales, and don't need to be done...
STOP DOING THEM!
