I’m constantly trying to tame the beast that is my inbox…and when I asked a mentor of mine, who owns multiple companies, how he deals with email, he just laughed…
And I could tell he struggles with it every day…
But he went on to talk to me about ROIT – Return on Invested Time – and how the performance of this metric ultimately governs how excellent my product or service will become.
If there are too many things occupying your mind, it will be scattered and your work sub-optimal. It’s about being ruthless; it’s about being an assassin with your time and boundaries.
If you don’t, then someone else will dictate your calendar.
Once you have your boundaries and processes set up then they’re on the chopping block every 90 days. It’s not just ‘continuous process improvement’, it’s the fact that you and I keep growing and changing and what worked last quarter may not be the right thing this quarter.
Know where the greatest return is on your time. The more successful you become, the higher the skill level at saying ‘no’, rather than ‘yes’.
You must keep the main thing the main thing.
