3 Strategies to Divide and Conquer Your Work

Successful entrepreneurs don’t wing it. They prioritize and strategize how to move their business forward. Here are some big picture strategies on how to get your work done fast—and efficiently.

Focus on High-Value Activities (HVA)

Ever heard of the 80/20 rule? The idea here is that you spend 80% of your time on productive activities that lead to generating revenue.

Know When to Say No

Not every client or project is worth your time. Don’t be afraid to say no to jobs that aren’t a fit for your skills or pay you less than your worth.

Delegate Your Work

Whether you have a team or tools to help, keep the HVAs for yourself and delegate tasks that take up your time, not your CEO brainpower.

Day-to-Day Productivity Tip

“Productive people never put anything in a holding pattern, because touching things twice is a huge time-waster. Don’t save an email or a phone call to deal with later. As soon as something gets your attention you should act on it, delegate it or delete it.”
