Today’s show is dedicated to help the business owner prioritize. Prioritization is the difference maker in every business.
You can’t manage time, you can’t control time it moves with or without you. However, you can manage and control your priorities. It’s not time that is the problem, it’s what you do with it. You’re priorities.
The question is NOT: Will my calendar be full.
The question is: Who and what will fill my calendar.
What You Need to Know
What You Need to Do
Every business leader needs to build margin in their life. But how do you do that? We believe you do it by focusing on the 3 R’s of priorities.

3. What is most rewarding? What is fulfilling to you? What will you gladly do for FREE. (I love what I’m doing right now and would do it for nothing, as long as everybody else is willing to do it for nothing). Find the thing that you would do for nothing, but learn how to do it so well that people will pay you a premium for it.
Each business leader should ask:
**What are the 3 Rs in your life?
Write down 10-15 things that you are responsible for, put in excel, then in next column list requirement, then return, then list reward. THEN rate each one. 3 = very required 2=pretty required 1 =not required. You will develop a list of what is most required of you, once it is done your daily priorities list will be different.
