“Buy Back Your Time”

One of my coaches, Dan Martell, wrote Buy Back Your Time, and it influences my philosophy around time and energy.  In his book, he recommends doing something called an energy audit. I had never thought about it, but he shares how to take a cross section between the things you love that give you energy and the opposite things.  Of course, there are some activities that are neutral, and they neither give nor take away energy. But looking at these activities within the scope of what you do to move the business forward, you can use an assessment like this to see what’s worth your time.

The Difference a Time and Energy Audit Makes

While I recommend doing a time and energy audit for one or two weeks, you can notice the differences within a few days. In fact, I’ve had clients message me within 24 hours saying how much they are doing that they were not even aware of.  It’s extremely helpful to identify all the tasks you’re actually doing, and what is draining you of energy you could use to move the business forward.  You should definitely question yourself about which tasks you’re doing that could be delegated, but that’s for another training.
