(3:29) Increasing Life Quality
Most of us have the tendency to overwork and really commit ourselves that we lose our most precious resource. Time. That is why many fail to withstand the pressure life throws at them. It is important to get back your time and never lose it because if you can buy back your time, you can definitely increase your quality of life and performance as a whole.
(6:54) Time Assassin
The most common time assassins are the Self Medicator, the Saver, the Supervisor and the Staller. All these different attributes exist as individuals in a business and they really have the tendency to slow down or interrupt the growth of a company and workflow as a whole.
(12:07) Time Worth
If you do anything that you could have paid somebody else, that buyback rate or less, you’re literally working against yourself. You can’t build a $10 million company off a $10 task. There’s not enough hours in the day. And also instead of hiring more people so you should hire people that will help buy back time out of your calendar.
(14:52) Buy Back Time
Instead of hiring two people to do multiple things thinking it will be efficient, it’s better to just give the most valuable employee more roles to take because one efficient employee is better than having two of them doing tasks that can be easily done alone. This is how you buy back time efficiently.
(17:08) Hiring Order
The hiring order is Admin, then Delivery, then, Marketing and then Sales. These should be the order of hiring in order for a business to prosper. If the order is changed, the flow won’t be effective anymore. They have to be in this order.
(20:00) Zero Inbox
Dan Martell talks about how he follows a zero inbox policy. He doesn’t do emails. Doesn’t do inbox. He sends voice messages because most people don’t realize that our typing speed versus our talking speed, our talking speed is way faster and it will be clearer and it will save more time.
A playbook is a very important part of handling a business that most CEOs do not even follow. It is important because it has all the necessary guidelines to run the business and also for every employee to be able to follow the guidelines. If it’s not followed the business will just crumble and the employee might just lose a spot in the company.
