[00:00:01] Hi, everyone. I’m James. Welcome to the channel. Today, ONA’s is home to you about 10 approaches or mindsets that I’ve found very useful in my career working for myself. Oftentimes, you’ll have so many things going on, so many different priorities, more tosti you can possibly get through in a day or a week or a year. And I’ll use all of these to help me overcome that. No one on my list good is better than perfect. I have suffered in the past with procrastination, perfectionism, and you’ve really just got to get your head around the idea that good enough is good enough. You don’t have to go the extra extra mile on every single thing that it is that you do. You want to be shipping things when you’re slightly embarrassed about it. Number two. Speed equals execution. So if you want to get something done, then you want to need to make sure that you try and get it done quickly. The more speed that you can inject into something, the more likely you are to execute on, the more execution that you’re going to get out of it. It sounds quite obvious, but having a preference or a bias for speed will stand you in good stead in business. Number three, consistency. A lot of things just require that you chip away at it and chip away at it and chip away at it over a long period of time in order to see results. There oftentimes aren’t silver bullets. People always looking for silver bullets. And in many cases, that’s just not happening. For example, on a personal basis, let’s talk about weight loss. Weight loss is something where you just need to be consistent that eating less calories and your body is burning for a long period of time and you’ll lose weight. There’s a lot of different processes in business and a lot of different tasks that just require that you grind away day after day after day and that you don’t you don’t skip days. It’s the crowing of success over in lots of small portions over a long period of time that will get you where you want to go. Number four systems over goals. You might have grand plans and grand goes away. You want to go. But it’s good to keep those in mind, by the way, that you achieve your goals by building systems, which is by building repeatable business processes or building repeatable work patterns or processes that get things done, which will lead you to achieve your goals. So a big part of building a business or starting a business, creating a business is building the system which achieves your goals. So systems over those next up type more swings. Now, this is from the idea of like Lucke surface area. I think it was Wayne Gretzky said that, you know, you miss 100 percent of the shots that you don’t take. And the idea here is, is that if you want to have luck on the your side and you’ve got to give more opportunities for luck to happen. So the more swings you take it back, the more attempts that you make, the more things you try, the more likely it is that one of them is going to come off or multiple of them are going to come off. So rather than going all in on one single thing, try multiple things, put your all into it, but try multiple things, take more swings, take more chances. If you’re doing marketing, go for more channels. If you are selling products, try and get more products out there, type more swings. [00:03:24][202.8]

[00:03:25] Next up is delegation. If you are looking to grow your business beyond a certain size, if you’re looking at being successful in a long term time horizon, then is going to come a point where you need to delegate some of your top, some of your lower priority tasks, all those things that other people can do better than you. Now. Perfectionism, procrastination, these kind of things where the head here as well. You know, I often get this thought in my head about like. I don’t think that someone else will be able to do this particular task as quickly as I can or to the standard that I could do it. I know I could do it, but. In order to be successful, you’re going to need to delegate at some point and you’re just going to need to let some of that go. And you’re also going to need to help these people on to produce at the level at which you’re expecting them to produce. But if you’re going to be successful, you need to delegate tasks. Next up, time boxing. There are always more tasks to do in a day than you possibly go hours on that day. Same is true of weeks and years is always far more things that you should be doing than you’ve ever got time to do. One way you can do with that is you can look at all the tasks. You can greet them together into types of thing. And you can say, right, Kate, I know that I need to do some marketing. I know that I need to do some helping my employees grow. I need to do some strategic thinking. I need to do some work at the coalface. All of these things, you want to look at those and you want to set aside particular times, either in a day, write your day up into certain blocks where you do certain things or set yourself a maximum period of time in which to do something. For example, if you’ll the sort of person who does suffer from perfectionism and you’re likely to want to spend many, many, many hours on something that you should really only be taking an hour on, then just set yourself that hour and do the thing in the time allotted time books it related to that is batching of tasks, things like answering your emails. If you’re just pecking away at that all day, then oftentimes you can’t get into the flow that you need to get into to try and succeed in other areas of your business. So again, with that, what you wanna do is you want to save up answering your e-mails until a particular time in the day and you crank all through that entire list in one go. Same with emails. Same with other tasks which can easily be put together. Replying to customer requests. Doing accounting will. Things like that. [00:05:57][152.0]

[00:05:57] So Bache tasks number nine is leverage your strengths. And number 10 is mitigate your weaknesses. Now, these are obviously related. Oftentimes, people will know what their weaknesses are and the way that they try and deal with those is by learning things, doing things, practising to try and get rid of those weaknesses, to try to bring those weaknesses up to just average. But you’ll be better off actually spending the time where your best, where your strengths lie. Try and find ways to leverage the strengths that you already have. If you are a programmer and you’re a good programmer, you’re not a good manager. Then find ways of. Leveraging programming, and if you’re not good at managing. Find ways to mitigate the management. Find someone else to do it delegated. Or just plain don’t do it. And see what happens. So I always try to be leveraging your strengths and mitigating your weaknesses. So that’s the 10.
