Let’s get one thing straight:
It’s not that you don’t have enough time in the day to get things done.
It’s that you aren’t prioritizing the right things.
We all have the same 24 hours. If you factor in the time it takes you to eat, sleep, and do other everyday tasks, how are you going to spend all the time besides those hours?
You need to figure out what needs to be done by you and what doesn’t.
But what if those other things — the ones that don’t need to be doen by you — still need to get done?
You either delegate them to someone on your team or hire someone new to whom you can delegate.
The best way to get out of the grind is to put someone between you and the grind.
The more you bring on the right people to help you, the more time you’ll get back in your day.
Always look for ways to free yourself up.
As we’ve been building the Crisp team over the years, I had to determine what I was good at and what I wasn’t. From there, I focused on hiring people whose strengths were my weaknesses.
Using that formula has helped us continue to grow and become the best team possible.
Though it’s taken years to do, it’s freed up my time significantly, and in turn it’s allowed me to work on the business instead of in the business.
To effectively scale, you must approach your time the same way.
