How to work out your priority one value tasks? 🤔
“All any of us have is approximately 4000 weeks, if we’re fortunate.
It is absolutely surprising when you realize that that’s all the time we have.
So if you’re limited by the number of weeks that you have in your life and the number of hours that you can dedicate to running your business, you really have to focus on the limited supply of hours and focus on the things that really get you to the place you’re going.
You might have heard of the Pareto principle. It was developed years ago by management consultant Joseph German, based on the work of the Italian economist Vilfredo Pareto.
The Pareto principle basically says that 80% of our results or outcomes are really the things we look for and try to achieve, 80% of those come from just roughly 20% of our activities. ⬅️
It’s sometimes startling how true this is. The tricky part, therefore, is figuring out from a business owner perspective, which are those 20% of activities are priority one value tasks.”

What is Transactional Analysis?
“You have to decide the value to you and your business of any certain task.
Once you’ve done that you can work out the time to value score and focus on scheduling those things in the time allowed to you.
I recommend doing this at least once a year.
As your priorities will change you will need to revisit this exercise and each time reassess the value.
The older you get typically the way your values will change and that will influence what you think is the right thing to be doing for your business.
Again, it needs to be something that’s right for you for your life for your consultancy, and for your brand.“
