BPR Jan. 2024 Newsletter - Think Before You Do!

Happy New Year! Instead of coming up with a bunch of resolutions (we all know where most of those end up..), I invite you to take pause, integrate what you will from 2023, and consider what it would look like if you said no to more, or to those things that don’t spark joy or yield a good ROI on your time.

It all starts with examining HOW we spend our time, which got me thinking about actionable steps to get that much closer to desired sparked joy. The less things you have on your plate allows you to focus and get that ROI on your time. Actionable step: saying no. Other actionable steps: delegate what you’re not good at so you can focus on what you are good at = max ROI. Even better – look at the data and make decisions and use that to dictate future behavior – for yourself, your team, and the products/services you deliver to your Customers.

If you want to dig in further, check out this read from HBR on How CEO’s manage time, and give us a shout to learn how BPR can help you improve the ROI of your time and resources. And don’t forget to always build in a buffer for the unexpected (and reading, see below!).
