Find an Extra Day Every Week

[ Blackboard Fridays Ep. 37 ]
by Jacob Aldridge Published

Most business owners I speak with would like more money; EVERY business owner I speak with would like more time. So what separates those of us who always have enough time, from those who are always playing catch up?

The Momentum Meeting Schedule. Being too busy as a business owner generally means being too reactive - losing time, every day, by reacting to the needs of your team and your clients. Who knew that more meetings could save you time!

Now we know that bad meetings can be terrible time wasters, but as we discussed in Blackboard Fridays episode 28 blaming 'meetings' for a lack of productivity is like blaming 'spoons' for all the ice-cream you eat. Used properly, there's power here.

And a proper meeting schedule - which we walk through in this episode - fast tracks communication and decision making across an organisation. Faster, more frequent communication allows you as a leader to be proactive instead of reactive.

Take back control of your time, to release you to do more of what you want in business.

In this week's episode:

  • What are the critical meetings every business needs
  • Who will attend, how long will they run, and how often will you have them
  • What flexibility or personalisation do you need to include

And stay tuned to the end where I connect your meeting schedule with your business life cycle, to empower you to begin connecting different pieces of the businessDEPOT advisory system.

Take 5 minutes each week to focus on your business instead of dealing with the demands of working in it.
