MBA1064 How do you know you have too much on your plate?

There’s a difference between busy and burnt out.

We get it: motivated, driven entrepreneurs aren’t scared of a little hard work. We want to tackle everything ourselves, because we’ve chosen independence as a way of life. But working for yourself doesn’t mean going it alone. If you try to do it all as your business grows, eventually you’re going to drop a ball or two.

Today, we discuss how to know when it’s time to pump the brakes. Especially as you scale, skillfully delegating work is crucial. Keeping yourself energized, efficient, and productive doesn’t mean overworking yourself to the point of failure. It requires taking a step back, assessing your workload, and doing what’s best for the business.

Fortunately, there are some tell-tale signs that you’re doing too much, or that you’re doing too little. We even have a specific system we use to determine whether our “To Do” list is too long, too short, or just right. With a little strategy, you can organize yourself into low-stress productivity.

The point of entrepreneurship isn’t to work yourself to death. Try our system, and see if you could use a little help. Click Play!
