How would you feel at the end of the day? After a long productive work day, you discovered it was the most effective day you’ve had that month. You’ve established many meetings with great energy, done 4 hours of deep work on strategic thinking, made two big decisions and even had time to eat out with your partner. But that it happens;
The next day rolls around, and we’re back in our day-to-day grind, overwhelmed and fatigued. What has caused this previous day to be so productive? What can we do to make this our new standard?
It’s always so fascinating that many entrepreneurs know precisely where their finances are spent (and they should be) but don’t know where their most valuable asset is spent; time and attention. That’s why we want to set up the following;
A concrete time and productivity tracking system that we can reflect on; in 0 minutes of our time. The whole setup costs a maximum of 15 minutes of your time and will be well worth it;
One of our clients, Tom, runs a multiple-figure online business and already had a time tracking protocol in place when he started with us; but after implementing our system, he saved more than 10 hours a week in his routines to improve his business and well being even further; in only 15 minutes with the proper focus. So let’s set this up using the SPR method, shall we?
This step is the most exciting and easy to implement. This is a one-time setup for measuring our time only. We recommend using the app Rize.io (25% off with code PEAKCLUB) for this. In Rize, you see exactly where you spend your time and how Tom used it; to see what to delegate to his assistant and team. You see, if you spend 2 hours a day on messaging, you could objectively consider hiring an assistant to do that.
After setting up Rize, we want to ensure we have a calendar and to-do list to work out. For this, we recommend using Ical or Google with Todoist.
After we’ve set up our system, we need something to measure it against and improve it onset up our system; we need something to measure it against and improve it. You can see it as a benchmark; you plan how you want it to be to get your most productive day possible, check what has happened, and then implement the third step to reflect on this and see where we can improve. But before we do that, there are some practical tips for planning out your day;
- Have non-negotiable evening and morning routines that you’ll do on autopilot
- Start with the most cognitively demanding tasks in the morning.
- Plan meetings only in the afternoon, not in the mornings and evenings
- Have a transparent system you work out of
It’s fun to see where your time goes, but all the above is a waste of time if we don’t do the following; reflect on it and see where we can improve.
Reflecting is a daily practice that helped Tom see where he could improve himself with his time and see what he could do to improve it further.
This you could implement in your evening routine in a journal.
It’s as easy as that. But don’t make this mistake a lot of entrepreneurs make;
We are trying to get it perfect or live like a robot. That’s not the purpose behind this; we want to measure where our attention goes so we can make the impact we want to make with our business.
