Triple Your Effectiveness
What would it mean to you if you could triple your effectiveness? Imagine how this would change your business. Here are 7 ways to triple your effectiveness immediately:
1. Learn to Say No
One of the most effective ways to increase your effectiveness is to develop some strong boundaries for yourself. By saying no more often, you open space for yourself to do what you need to, instead of reacting to others.
2. Stop Tolerating Things
Raise your standards, and stop tolerating anything but the best. When you do this, others will be forced to raise their standards as well. Keep in mind that allowing your employees to perform below their capabilities is decreasing the performance of your business.
3. Cut Your Appointment Times in Half
Doing this will force yourself and others to be more focused, and get more done in less time, with less stress. Just think about how much time you are currently wasting in meetings. Need I say more?
4. Buff Up Your Systems
When you have great systems, things are taken care of effortlessly. Review all of your systems this week, and implement some changes to make them even more efficient. When the system takes care of it, you don't have to!
5. Double Your Expectations
Expect twice as much from others that you would expect from yourself. Don't fall into the trap of assuming that your team can't do this. If you expect it, you might be surprised what actually happens. If you are not getting pushback, you aren't asking enough!
6. Have People You Can Delegate To
Have a reserve of people you trust to delegate things to, and do it! Delegate things immediately, and leverage your time and energy.
7. Accelerate Your Time Frames
Cut all your time frames in half, if not more. This will force you and others to come up with ways to be more effective and efficient. You will be amazed how much more time you will have when you become completely unreasonable with your time frames.
Implement these 7 techniques and watch your effectiveness go through the roof!
