Do you feel like you're drowning in a sea of tasks each day in your business? No matter what type of business you have, the to-do list is constant and lengthy.
From hiring new team members to reconciling accounts, numerous tasks must be completed every day to keep the business running and the revenue flowing.
Managing the long list of tasks each day is a constant dilemma, and there’s no quick or easy solution.
I did a Google search using keywords related to managing tasks the other day
...and it's clear that this dilemma is on the minds of the majority of business owners.
Managing tasks is stressful. We want to know how to get it all done and still have time to grow and scale our businesses.
Online, you’ll find a plethora of videos, downloads, blogs, and training programs teaching business owners how to wrangle everything required to grow a business.
If you’re like me, I simply LOVE it when I can check something off my to do list.
I guess you can say I’m a little geeky too because I love that little tick sound when I mark off a task on my electronic devices.
And there’s nothing better than when I click a task or project “complete” in my client’s project management tools and it goes away – I LOVE it!
The reality is that your tasks list will never go away, and the bad news is you’ll never actually see the bottom of the ever-growing list.
As the business grows, your team will have more and more to accomplish. The good news is you don’t have to do it yourself or oversee all the tasks list.
CEOs and business owners must focus only on what they can do to create real growth.
You must do what brings the most value to the business and delegate everything else.
Controlling tasks and projects isn’t the
best use of your time and energy
For you, controlling tasks and projects isn’t the best use of your time and energy.
In fact, if you're one of the majority of visionary entrepreneurs managing the minutia of tasks drains and frustrates you.
Eventually, you'll want to add a second-in-command role to your team.
A second-in-command will ensure that tasks are taken care of each day so you have the time to focus on growing and scaling the business.
Most importantly, I cannot stress enough the need for you to focus on using your gifts to take your business to the next level.
You cannot do that if you’re managing the nuts and bolts of running your company each day.
If you listen to your intuition, you know you can’t keep your fingers in all the pies and grow your company to the level it deserves.
All this takes you away from focusing on the high-level strategizing and planning that only YOU can do to grow the business.
This is where a second-in-command adds immediate value and breathing space for you and your business.
Your second-in-command's role includes being the team manager and tasks director, as well as a project supervisor.
All those daily tasks come off your plate and free you to be the Visionary of your business future.
