Do you find that you’re constantly busy and feeling just a little bit overwhelmed with all this technology? You’ve got social media happening, emails coming into your inbox.
“Technology was supposed to make things easy for us.”
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.”
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 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 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.
Now, I’ve put together some of my very best ideas into one place – into a book, Work Less Make More, and that’s exactly what will happen when you buy the book, read it and go through the action steps at the end of each chapter. There is a catch though. It’s going to take you around about two hours to go through this book. But once you do that, you will know the lessons that will help propel you to taking advantage of technology, to reduce overwhelm, to know what the right activities to do, to learn about the correct business model, to start building a team to help you out with all the activities that are on your plate.
So go ahead and click on the link right near this video and you can go through the page where you can find the right store to buy the book. You can get it digitally with a Kindle, so you can be reading it in minutes. You can also order the soft cover copy so that you can read a real book.
