Time Blocking Strategy

LEARN | TWELVE, APRIL 2019 

You know the what and the how, but do you know the when?

Like most professionals, you’re probably a planner.  You have your “to do” lists and your carefully laid out directions on what to do and how to do it.  But do you plan when to do those things?  If not, you may often find yourself jumping from task to task, maybe feeling a little overwhelmed by your “to do” lists and not getting as much accomplished in a day as you’d originally intended.  Have no fear, time blocking is here to help! Elon Musk does it, so does Bill Gates, you’ll be in good company!

Too Busy to Grow and Thrive?  How to Move From Reactive Wheel-Spinning to Proactive Growth

Have you ever thought:  If I could spend half as much time on half as many things, I would be twice as effective”?  Like many of the entrepreneurial leaders we work with, the endless wheel-spinning of urgent but lower-value work distracts and disrupts their ability to focus on their single most valuable contribution to the company. The “I’m just too busy to grow” mindset and feeling of being surrounded by business clutter holds us back from making our ultimate contribution to the world . As leaders, we all have great intentions around our impact and time.  There are many adjustments that we can make in our business and our behavior to move out of a reactive space and into proactive growth.

Too Many Ideas but No Follow-Through? How to Move Your Ideas Quickly and Easily to Implementation

The ability to (1) dream up, (2) create and (3) execute new ideas is the calling of all entrepreneurial leaders.  A healthy business operates and grows when the 3 legs of the tripod are in balance. As visionaries, we naturally and bravely bring the ideation, but typically struggle with the other legs: creating a plan for our ideas and committing to a plan fully to execute them.  When the three are out of balance, a chronic start-stop dynamic grows between you and your team, and if not managed correctly can lead to team-wide burnout and a total lack of productivity and feelings of progress.

Images of Grandeur

LEARN | TWELVE, MARCH 2019 

If you look up the definition of white-glove it means to be marked by special care or attention. When entrepreneurs and business owners speak of white-glove service, the phrase sparks images of grandeur and distinguished attention to detail. Many entrepreneurs are striving to create a unique white-glove experience for their clients that elevate their service offerings and show the world what makes them great.

One of the best ways to show the world the ‘you that makes you you’ is to get clear on the front-stage versus back-stage processes that make up your business model. You can gain immense clarity about your business by altering your perspective and looking at things through the filters of front-stage and back-stage.

Here's How Delete Messages You Regret Sending on Facebook Messenger

Facebook now lets you delete messages from old Messenger chats, a feature only Mark Zuckerberg used to have. Facebook launched a new feature in early February that lets you delete old messages inside its chat platform, Facebook Messenger. If you’d like to clean up your old chat history or have sent messages you may regret, there is an easy way to delete them. You can even delete newly sent messages if you act within 10 minutes of sending.

First, open the Facebook Messenger app on your phone or desktop and find a conversation with messages you would like to delete. On your phone, press and hold on a message or select the three dots menu icon on desktop version. Choose “remove” next to the message. If you have sent the message in the last 10 minutes you can select “remove for everyone” to make sure the messages disappear from the indexes of the people you’ve sent them to, not just your own history. CNBC
