Back to the Basics… Self Mastery

Continuing my discussion from a while back on the basic pilars of business, the next pilar is…

Self Mastery – This pilar is all about productivity. Using time wisely, for yourself and your team, allows your business to run smoothly. There are many different techniques and systems for managing productivity, in the end you have to choose the one that works best for your style and business. The most important aspect of any “time management” system that you use, is that it allows you to insure that the most important things in your life get done. I have my favorites, and just about everyone I know has theirs, you need to find yours. One of my favorites, and one of the most popular, is Steven Covey’s “First Things First”. In a nut shell, this says that you have to use importance to decide how you schedule, not urgency. The more important a task is, the more you need to make sure that it is in your schedule. Handling the important tasks with priority allows you to have fewer urgent tasks to deal with.
