The second step of our Business AM programme focuses on removing barriers to growth by looking at the key factors that make your business a success, measuring what matters and removing what doesn’t. 

Someone once said that time is like a snowflake – it disappears while you’re trying to decide what to do with it. And it’s true, isn’t it? There’s never enough time just to keep the business running, let alone enough time to drive it forward, is there?

And yet somehow, we’ve got to create the time to start working on the really important things:

The things that will… drive the business forward

The things that will… help you to achieve your goals

The things that will… turn your business dreams into reality

In this blog we’re helping you find the time you need to be able to do all the really important stuff by sharing three top tips to increase your effectiveness:

  1. Focusing on the important tasks. Don’t clear up the small things first and get bogged down by the unimportant things – little stuff has a tendency to multiply!
  1. Use a time management matrix to identify how best to manage and spend your time and your life. Categorise your tasks by first asking is the task important? Second, is the task urgent? Each task should fall into one of these categories: 
  2. Remember the Pareto principle (also known as the 80/20 rule) – 80% of results flow from 20% of effort. By focusing on the all-important 20% and applying this throughout your business you will achieve more with much less effort, time and resources.
