Other stuff


The easy thing to do is deal with (and moan about) all that other stuff.

Absolutely, it demands attention. Sure, it’s a pain. There may even be things in there you need to know and have to react to. Give yourself forty minutes, fifty tops.

Delegate, delete, deal with and put anything that actually matters and demands some decent attention – in some place to-do-later list.

Whatever works for you.

Whatever works so you get back to the real work.

The work that’s focused on tomorrow rather than today. The work that’s about building this organisation into the place you need it to be. The work that’s what you want to be know for.

Not the handle-turning day-to-day work.

Not squandering-time work.

The leading. The creating clarity. The building a team. The making connections. The critical contacts.

Steering the bus.

Skippy strategy: Spend most time where you have most leverage.
