Technology was supposed to make things easy for us. We're always glued to our computer or our device, and I know exactly what this was like because for many years, I was spending a lot of time on my computer trying to build myself a business so that I could escape from the nine-to-five job.
Luckily, I was able to build and sell a fantastic online business or two, and I've built some that have generated more than a million dollars a year. I'm James Schramko, and I now help hundreds of students and some of the world's leading online experts with my information. Some of them have paid up to $20,000 per year for my consultation help.
I want to share with you a simple three-point action plan that you can use to start getting technology to work for you.
"Time is measurable."CLICK TO TWEET
Step One - Measure your time
So action plan number one is start measuring the time that you're spending on certain activities. Luckily, we can already do this because time is measurable. There are tools you can install onto your computer such as RescueTime
that will show you exactly where you spend your time.
Step Two - Score your activities
Step two is to score the activities and determine which ones of those activities are more useful than the other activities. If you're spending a lot of time on Facebook every day, you'd have to wonder, is that helping your business move forward or is it hindering your business?
Step Three - Do more high-level activities
Step three is to do more of the high-value activities and do less of the low-value activities. Now you’re starting to get some leverage because you're spending more and more time on the high-impact activities.
