Business leaders wear many hats, which can often lead to overextending. There’s a reason studies have been conducted regarding the ineffectiveness of multi-tasking. In a fast-paced and accessible world, it’s important to stay focused, prioritize and manage time effectively to be successful.
Don’t be afraid to delegate. There’s a reason a capable team with various experience is in place— use them. Set early deadlines on projects and stick to those as much as possible. Avoid overloading the calendar with unnecessary meetings and learn to set boundaries. There is power in saying no to things that don’t add value.
