employee engagement

So you have employees. Congratulations!

Now, let me ask you a serious question: Do you know the most profit-making task those employees could be doing in your business today? Do you know how much time they’re actually spending on that profit-making task? Do you have a system in order to track whether or not they’re doing profit-making work? Do you have a filter to know whether or not the time they’re spending is actually profitable? Are there things that could be eliminated? Are there things that could be delegated? Some tasks are cheaper when outsourced, and your employees will be happier for it. Some can even be automated, and your employees left to more important, engaging work. Some, on the other hand, can (and should) be put off for another quarter or two.

How much would just one hour of your employees saved time be worth to you in a month? In a year? That’s an investment that will compound. In our executive coaching and management program, we help people discover how to save a million dollars in one hour. If this could help you, reach out to us. The solution is only 60 minutes away, and this expert consult is available for free, right now.

Convert your wasted time to profitable time.

leadership training, time management

Any good business owner or executive will expect a return on the investments they make for their company. They consistently analyze their ROI so they can make adjustments to their work accordingly. So when was the last time you were actually aware of the return on your own time? When was the last time you held yourself accountable to get a result and return from your time investment on a consistent, ongoing basis? And actually treated it as the most precious asset you’ve been given?

Time is not something you can just go get more of, so what is the most valuable thing you can do with your time today?

Is it to spend time with God? Is it to spend time with your spouse? Is it to serve other people? Is it to make a great contribution in your business? Is it to write a world-changing book?

Or is it Facebook, LinkedIn, Instagram, half-finished projects, and lunches with your friends where you’re on your phone the whole time? A day that you are never present in any way?

Just sayin’…you’re never gonna get this day back. Think about your time.

And if you want to really maximize your work, schedule some free coaching time with me today.

coaching for time management

Last week we talked about understanding the purpose of each day, and scheduling it accordingly. This week, I have a follow-up coaching question for you: When was the last time you started a day with a written plan, with a result in mind, and you actually executed it by the end of the day? Does that happen a lot for you? Does it happen ever for you?

Why is this important? Because in this day and age, people have access to us. This can be good, of course, but it can also be distracting. If we don’t explicitly design our days, if we don’t protect them for our important work, if we don’t actually manage and budget our time, what happens? We get interrupted.

That’s when our days become hurried, frantic, and without any tangible results by the time we go to bed. Everything is left half-finished; nothing is completed. That’s a recipe for burnout and stress, because we’ll never feel like we’re moving forward. We’ll never feel that sense of accomplishment that can be so satisfying and healthy.

Design your perfect day, every day. And if you need some support, schedule a free life or executive coaching session with me right now.

Your life is made up of three kinds of days. In our coaching practice, we call these days Game Days, Practice days, and Off-Season.

Game days are when we’re doing our biggest work; we’re contributing in big ways, serving our employees, our customers, and our business.

Practice days are the prep days. Those are the days of study, of learning, of rehearsal and anticipation. These are the days that, when done well, contribute to a great game day.

Off-season days involve no business at all; we focus on those things which restore, relax, and rest us. Things that bring life to our soul. These are, in fact, the most critical kinds of days.

To understand which days of your life fall into which of these categories, ask yourself four questions:

What are you doing? Who are you doing it with? Is this activity within my God-given abilities? And what does my life look like while I’m doing it?

Now, using those questions, my challenge to you this week is this:

Take out your calendar, and for the next month designate your days. Which ones are Game days? Practice days? Off-season days? Write them into your schedule and plan accordingly. And let me know how this changes your life.

Not sure how to start? Schedule a free coaching session with me today.

After thirty-six years of marriage, after experiencing every kind of failure and success that a business could produce, after coaching business owners of all kinds, my wife and I have had a revelation. There’s a reason that most business owners are either hugely successful in their business but struggling in their marriage, or doing great in their marriage while their business is barely surviving. Those two things should not be mutually exclusive.

So today, we wanted to take a minute and talk about how to build a successful business and a successful marriage at the same time. Because there’s a direct correlation. As we talk about this, we can talk about how we treat our wife, and how we treat a customer. How we decide to make an investment in our business, and in our relationship with our spouse. We all know how important it is to love and respect our spouse; we also know how important it is to deliver 110% to our customers above and beyond what’s expected. What’s more, how we treat our employees should not be too different from the way we treat our children. Being a business owner with employees is being a father or a mother. And, obviously, having literal children is a full time job and commitment through all it’s ups and downs.

So what if we started looking at both of these parts of our life and began by asking ourselves the question: What can I learn from my marriage and my family that can serve my business? And what can I learn from my business that can serve my wife, my husband, my children?

My wife and I know and believe and experience that we can have both. We know that. Let’s talk about it. Click here to learn more about our business coaching!
