What’s the Best Use of Your Time, Right Now?

As your business grows, your focus and prioritization should change… from choosing the right niche… to building content and inbound links… to monetizing that traffic.

We all tend to delay the things we don’t like to do, even if they are really important. Identify those tasks.

Always work on high-return activities. Ask yourself… “Should I be doing what I am doing today?”

I did that a few days ago. I love posting in the SBI! Forums. It helps, in a leveraged way, because I choose to answer posts in a style that will usually assist more than just the SBIers who asked the specific questions.

But last week, I simply had to turn my RSS feed off for two days so that I could focus totally on Brainstorm It! V3. (It’s amazing by the way, ready and near-perfect technically, and the Content team has developed a new approach to choosing a niche given the new tools.)

THAT was my best use of my time at that moment.

So to all…

What’s the best use of YOUR time, right NOW?

All the best,

    Thanks Ken for the great advice. I alway suffer from the said problem of procrastination. Always putting off doing what’s important to doing what’s easier and what’s more pleasant.
    I’ve started yesterday, putting my to do list on an A4 sized paper, 6 things I need to do today. Glad to report that I’ve managed to do 6 of them. I’m putting another 6 to dos for tomorrow, and hopefully will be able to do them all.
    I must say that it really feels good inside when I was able to get those things on my priority list done first.
    Hope I can keep up my discipline and motivation. Wish me luck.

  • Hi Ken
    I had a similar problem. I was trying to do a bit of everything every day.
    Everything was getting on top of me and felt like I was getting nowhere.
    My better half was doing a physicology and counselling course at the time. She said write a to do list, with achieveable and realistic goals and do one at a time.
    So I did.
    Even though I was working the same amount, I was actually being able to tick things off and move on.
    Amazing how something so simple releases the pressure load.
