“Every human has a finite number of heartbeats. I don’t intend to waste any of mine.” - Neil Armstrong
Most entrepreneurs start a business because they crave the freedom of having their own schedule, being their own boss, and enjoying the work they do, but many get so “busy” that they can’t enjoy any of the freedom they wanted in the first place.
Their input is needed every day and they don’t have the discipline to let things go, so they’re stuck on a treadmill of doing without producing real results.
The problem is not that these struggling entrepreneurs need more time, but that they need to use the time they have more effectively.
So this week, I put together a 3000-word accounting of all the productivity practices I've picked up over the years. I don’t think you have to be a productivity czar just to run a successful business, but if you want to capture more free time while building a company, these practices will put you on the right path.
