What should I be doing with my time?
Your ability to honestly answer this question will say more about where your business are going to end up than anything else.
For instance, you know that you should not be spending your time doing your own bookkeeping, say, or answering the phone. If you aspire to a six-figure income and therefore have to be generating a three-figure hourly sum, you can’t do work that others could do for £15 or £20 an hour.
Remember, the price you pay for doing the things that you should NOT be doing is huge. The act getting and keeping of customers really is the single most important thing for any business. When you have a regular consistent flow of customers coming into your business, everything else gets taken care of. But only when you understand properly the answer to this question. What SHOULD you be doing with your time? Write it down and be clear on this.
