beginendReverse engineer your way forward. This will help you focus on the things you do really well and delegate those things that would gum up your progress if you had to do them.

You’ve heard the phrase, ‘don’t reinvent the wheel’?  Don’t spin your wheels, either; resolving to do the same thing everyday that you already know you don’t know how to do.

We don’t need to fill our day with stuff to do or things to worry about. Jesus said, everyday will have its own fill of that. Instead, be filled with the Spirit. “Be very careful, then, how you live—not as unwise but as wise, making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil.  Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the Lord’s will is.” (Ephesians 5: 15 – 17)

Is there any part of your life that you are trying to make more affordable but what you are really doing is wasting your time?

Have you identified the 20% of your work that produces the 80% of your results?

If you know what it is, do others know? Do you allow yourself to be pulled away from what you do best by the demand of others to do something which wastes your time?

Are you putting a plan in place to delegate work to others who do it more gladly and productively than you do?  Don’t assume because you don’t like to do something, no one likes to do it. For someone, what is sour to you is sweet to them. Find out with whom you can exchange work and benefit the both of you.
