Griff and Lee read “Time Management for People With No Time – Part 1”, adapted from a post by Cliff Ennico in Rieva Lesonsky’s Small Biz Daily. Ron, Birmingham AL (oilerman21), asked about title format. Paula, Bigfork MT (dbruno), had a question for Lee.
Priorities are everything. What is on your “A” list? Here is a simple 3-minute task for each day. First, list all your tasks for today, even the mundane or personal. Then categorize them by levels: A, B, C or D.
“A” items are the must-do’s for today, such as shipping sold items or your 3pm meeting with your child’s teacher. Your “B” list would consist of stuff that if left undone today would result in few if any repercussions; for example, filing your paperwork or cleaning off your file cabinet. “C” items, if left undone, would have little to no negative impact on your business or life.
“D” is for items to delegate whenever possible. This works. Have fun.
Every now and then I have to remind myself of the 80/20 rule. We used it in radio sales to mean that 20% of the sales staff bring in 80% of the sales. For eBay sellers, it means that 20% of your efforts create 80% of your sales. So identify that 20%, write down a list of what comprises it and make these efforts your biggest priority.
