Making Work Count – Choosing Projects Wisely To Reach Business Goals

You've worked an 80-hour week, and you never want to look at that project, or those projects, again. But was it worth it? Was the successful completion of those projects just drudgery, or did it contribute significantly to the short or long-term goals you've set for your ?

Andrew Brown of suggests taking the time to critically analyze your project list. If you cannot connect the dots between a project on your list and the goals you've set for your business, consider removing the project from your list. If removing these types of projects from your list is impossible, he advises at least prioritizing those projects that will advance you toward your goals. He warns not to take the strategy of putting those quality projects off until you "get some of the dregs" off your plate.

Mr. Brown asserts that you must view all your projects in the big picture – considering the value and context of your time investment as they relate to your ultimate goals for your business.

Consider seriously outsourcing your projects that you have little interest or aptitude in, and let a virtual assistant take care of these things, like bookkeeping, tedious marketing details, customer service, paperwork etc. Send us an email to with your concerns about for a consultation. What's your biggest problem? Maybe you don't have to fix it yourself – guaranteed to achieve average results in exchange for your precious time.
