Don’t you just love a good quote?
They can be super motivational and remind me of just what I must do to take that next hard step, whether it be asking for a tough sale, facing a childhood fear, or apologizing for something I said.
They seem to cross my Instagram feed right when I need to see them. Gotta love serendipity.
Well, recently I stumbled across this jewel of a quote:
“Watch the little things. A small leak will sink a great ship.” ~ Benjamin Franklin.
Fact! And that’s exactly why I plan out my hours - so my days don’t get away from me, leaving me with little accomplished and wondering where all my time went. When compounded, such wasting of time would add up to a giant loss in productivity and respectively, profits.
But it goes deeper than that. I don’t encourage my clients to be productive all day because I know that’s totally impossible (more on that next week). I do, however, think all business owners should be auditing their time to figure out where they may unknowingly have time leaks that they can plug up to prevent further damage.
That’s because as Benjamin Franklin so eloquently said, “A small leak will sink a great ship.” Several leaks could cause a ship to sink even faster!
If you want your business to stay afloat through and are willing to do what it takes to maximize your profits, tune into this week’s episode of Productivity Straight Talk where I dive into ten ways you might be letting time leak out of your days. These may seem like simple things but they add up to big time wasters that dramatically affect your productivity and your bottom line.
