Some activities are just not as important to others for achieving long-term success. To level up in business or a career, start prioritizing the unimportant or less important tasks you perform daily.
New people who approach the world of self-improvement are pretty bad when it comes to setting priorities. Over the years, they’ve suffered some setbacks that they attribute to the wrong root causes. You create the majority of problems in your life. Circumstances play a role in some adverse events, but the majority are the result of poor planning.
It’s not possible to succeed if you spend too large of a percentage of your time on low-value tasks. Checking email or reading text messages are extremely low-value activities, yet most people act as if their lives depend on it! If you start tracking your time regularly, you’ll notice the real waste that occurs doing specific repetitive is through the roof.
The good news is that it’s easy to change out of this pattern. As soon as you become mindful of time (that’s where tracking comes in), your whole perspective and all of your patterns immediately change. You’ll notice an immediate difference in how you view necessary chores. Low-value jobs bring down your overall earnings. Dump the majority of them (or delegate them to others), and you’ll have a lot of freed up time on your hands to begin work on much more important goals.
If you’re new to the idea of leveling up your skills, begin by attempting to rein in your time. It’s an excellent starting point because it helps you build the foundation you need to climb further.
