Build A Thriving Business (Or Career), Not A Prison. Every Sunday morning, you’ll get 1 actionable tip to dramatically improve your performance, profit, and potential without sacrificing what’s most important — TIME.

Back in 2007, I learned difficult lessons that persisted for many years.

I was over-committed to focus on everything in my business, which led me to focus on nothing. I thought everything was vital. As a rookie, I chased every target, losing sight of the bullseye. I was like a trigger-happy hunter, letting my wild gunshots only to serve in scattering the prey, leaving me famished amidst the echoing silence.

2. Monitor and optimize performance: Regularly review key performance indicators, identify areas for improvement, and adjust to drive continuous growth — follow a strict set of standards.

3. Streamline processes: Identify bottlenecks and eliminate unnecessary steps to optimize workflow efficiency. Your core business processes are the skeleton of your company — if they’re broken, you collapse.

4. Delegate effectively: Trust your team members with responsibilities that align with their skills, freeing up your time to focus on strategic planning; always seek to hire people better than you.

5. Embrace technology: Adopt tools and software that automate tasks, improve collaboration, and provide valuable insights for informed decision-making — automate as many redundant activities as possible.

6. Encourage work-life integration: Support employees’ well-being by promoting flexible schedules and creating a positive work environment that fosters motivation and creativity. And don’t fear…
