A few weeks ago I did an experiment with my coach, Alex Charfen, on an activity called a time study which is basically tracking every minute of your day in 15 minute time blocks.

Although I was initially resistant to to this, in the process of doing this, some really great insights started to appear.

The reason why this is important is because we think we are using our time wisely.  When you document this, you can’t even begin to realize how much waste there is.

After tracking for two weeks you begin to see patterns emerge and you begin to identify what activities are strategic, what is tactical, what is self-care time and what is family time.

One of the biggest insights I got is that I should be doing less tactical work in my business.  Part of the journey in growing your business is relinquishing control.  And so I need to stop doing things and empower my team to take care of those things.

I’ve also realized that doing this study is a great way to improve behaviors not just for yourself, but for your clients and team as well.

What You Missed

Every so often I get asked the question who coaches me?  That’s an important question that I addressed in our last episode.

To help give you some perspective on this topic, I shared my history of who I’ve worked with in the past and where I am now.

I’ve worked with some great people who have been able to give me insights and perspectives I would have never had, had I not invested in coaching and tried to figure everything out by myself.

When I look back at what I’ve spent on coaches, masterminds and events, I don’t look at it as a cost, I look at it as an investment.  It would be incongruent for me to be coaching people without having coaching myself.  If you’re not growing, you have nothing to give people.
