I’m late writing this blog post. I don’t have any “extra” posts in drafts waiting to go. But I’m also due to send out my Blog Topics newsletter, which people have paid to receive. I also have work to do in promoting my other projects like Kitchen Table Companies. I also have to give my part to the HBW newsletter that we send out Tuesday.
On top of all this, I owe some email responses to people. I owe a post to American Express OPEN Forum. I owe a submission to Entrepreneur magazine. I owe many people many things, and none of that goes towards the new projects I’m working on launching in a few weeks (all parts of HBW – don’t faint).
But which tasks matter most? How do you decide? What are you doing in your own business to decide what matters most?
It’s not as easy as saying one should do the tasks that pay you, because you also have to do the tasks that bring in new buyers, so that more people will pay you. It’s not as easy as saying do all the prospecting first, because you have paid customers who expect something from you (no matter what your business is, really). The answering of emails is above and beyond and you just must do this, because it’s no longer cool to gripe about being too busy.
So I’m asking you. Which tasks in YOUR business matter most to you? How do you organize your day?
Tomorrow, I’ll share how I do mine.
