The one productivity tip you’d recommend
Know your priorities. Everyday figure out the 3 most important tasks that you need to accomplish that would create the most value to your personal and business growth and complete them.
Then, outsource or delegate the other less important tasks. One trick is to list all the tasks you need to do, put an actual $ amount next to each task then sort the list from highest to lowest. Then do the highest value tasks.
