Here’s the reason why this business problem is important to solve…
Even though we need to stay focused on our high-value effective work, we sometimes lose track and find ourselves doing a bundle of inefficient low-priority activities that not only eat up our time and energy, but also have little or no impact on the final business targets and outcomes we’re attempting to achieve.
Which means the big problem is an “addiction to business” and it can lead to you making errors and becoming pressurised into making quick poor decisions which ultimately creates stress.
So how do you fix this time problem? Instead of rushing around being busy, try to slow down, and learn to manage your productive time better. Because productivity is about getting results
The fact is, there are times when you have to say no to others. And if you don’t know how to say no, then you really have to learn this important business skill since time is such a precious resource for you and the business and the only way you can free yourself up to do the priority actions is to say no politely to others who want your time by giving them good reasons when it’s not a priority for you.
To avoid this time problem constantly ask yourself this question:
“Is what I’m currently doing useful and does it contribute to the success of the ultimate business goal and targets?”
