I have something to confess…I’m a hypocrite.
For months I have been dispensing advice to people, blogging and tweeting the Efficiency Gospel: Check your email once a day, no more. Make a to do list, then delegate, delegate, delegate, do what you MUST and move on.
However, I haven’t mastered this discipline myself. My email is always on, open to a constant stream of customer requests and service provider questions 24 hours a day, seven days a week. I work weekdays from 9 to 9, and weekends for a few hours each day. The rest of the time I am constantly checking my iPhone…just in case. I suppose this is just the reality of running a start up business.
I’m easily distracted, I lack a clear direction and when I do make a to do list I generally stray from it somewhere between the first and second task. I suppose this is just the reality of living in an ADD brain.
But I am working on it, and will become more efficient…someday.
