Activity 49 – I have a list of my top 10 most enjoyable tasks in your business
If you are still enjoying your business, what are the bits you enjoy most?
Typically, we work harder and more creatively on areas we enjoy. These are not always the most productive or revenue generating aspects of the business; they are the tasks we look forward to most.
There are good reasons for establishing your top 10 most enjoyable tasks.
- When you know what you enjoy doing most, you can understand what is driving you.
- Learn the behaviours so you can use that feeling on other less enjoyable, but more financially rewarding tasks.
- Understand what tasks you might want to delegate.
- Understand where your time goes.
The HowTo bit:
Take some time out, ‘creative time’, to list all the tasks you enjoy doing in your business. I’ve found a brainstorm session over a coffee works well.
Prioritise your list of tasks to determine your top 10, in order of preference.
As per Blog 46, you can use a spreadsheet to record these tasks and sort them.
I add these tasks to my main spreadsheet and see how many overlap with the other tasks.
From this exercise you will see what you enjoy doing most; hopefully it’s the revenue generating tasks that you enjoy most. If not, it’s probably time to review why you are running your business and what tasks you should work on and those that you could delegate.
