Time. It’s your most valuable and limited resource and it’s more important and way more valuable than money.
That’s why, every 6 months or so, you should re-evaluate how you are spending your time.
Write down everything you do that is work-related.
Then, estimate how much time per month you spend doing everything that YOU do.
Then, the hard and valuable part…
Ask yourself these types of questions:
- Can I eliminate it all together? (When appropriate, this is the best choice and has the greatest impact on your practice and earning ability)
- Can I outsource it out of the office? (This is the 2nd best choice)
- Can I delegate it to staff? (3rd best choice)
You can never make more per hour than “what you are doing” is worth.
…and “worth” is decided by the marketplace, not you.
