Productivity Planning

How Do You Eat An Elephant?

Have you ever heard the question “How do you eat an elephant?” If not, the answer is one bite at a time. So let’s think about how one can become productive by the way they consume large tasks. To be efficient in you time blocking, let’s break down four areas you should focus on in a day or in a week.

The four areas are as follows:

  • administration duties
  • client services
  • learning/equipping time
  • marketing.

Take your week and break each of these areas down into time blocks to focus on the duties and responsibilities of that area.

I would recommend writing down what you actually do in that time period and develop a list of skill sets and duties required to do that task. Then I would create in a project management software program or SOP (Standard Operating Procedures) book. This way when the time comes for you to hirer for that position, its based on skill sets and not personality alone.

If you like to be able to get done in twelve weeks what most can only do in twelve months, then I recommend you check out this book below to help you be more productive.
