Here’s a four-stage cycle you can use to increase your productivity without wasting a lot of time and money:
NOTE: You don’t have to run this cycle across every area of your business at the same time.
Once you’ve reclaimed some time with stage 1, you can be at different stages of the cycle in different areas of your business.
For example, you could be at the Document stage with your weekly podcast, the Delegation stage with your invoicing, and at the Automation stage with your content marketing.
ASIDE: I like to create acronyms for things to make them easier to remember. The obvious acronym for this would be RDDA, but that’s hard to say, so I like RD2A better. Plus, RD2A sounds like a droid from Star Wars, so that’s a major bonus ;-)
Increasing your productivity makes very little sense if you are trading time for money.
So if you’re still renting yourself out by the hour, “stage zero” is to stop.
