These are my set of rules that I use to keep myself productive?

  • 1. Create the day ? even before I get to work (I walk to work which gives me half an hour to think through how the day is going to go) I work out what I want to achieve.
  • 2. I have a morning huddle (10 minutes) with my direct reports ? to see if they are stopped anywhere ? this really sets up the day. This 10 minutes can save a lot of interruptions during the day.
  • 3. Have a top 5 list ? what is the one thing that you have got to get done before the end of the day, then once complete move to the next thing. (I love a list)
  • 4. Always do the one thing you don?t want to do first. (get it out of the way so it is not hanging over your head)
  • 5. Turn off emails ? I will only look at emails at certain times of the day. Usually lunch time and at the end of the day (if the must do item is complete) ? I through out my Treo! I just don?t want to be bombarded with emails all day. I set my agenda ? rather than just reacting to incoming emails.
  • 6. Have allocated meeting times in the diary for all one on ones (then people don?t need to interrupt you.)
  • 7. I never use messenger at work (actually ever)
  • 8. I use a head set when talking on the phone
  • 9. I use two monitors
  • 10. I always have a water bottle on my desk ? and usually a jar of almonds too ? I need brain food.

Grow & Scale Your Business by Naomi Simson

Tell Naomi a little bit about your business by completing the questions below. (It will take less than 60 seconds)

Answering your #1 Biggest Business Challenge question tip: 

Go beyond just saying "Poor Cashflow" or "Unreliable Team". 

Instead, give Naomi details & specifics on how this is currently your #1 Biggest Business Challenge. 

I.e. "Every month I'm struggling to pay my bills on time because there just isn't consistent cash flow coming into the business. I've tried sticking to budgets in the past & pay myself less to keep some extra funds aside for emergencies, but still every month there seems to be another financial fire to be put out. I don't know what to do about it, so I'm just grinding it out."
