The world today is different in many ways, one key way is how the most successful business leaders have learned to break the chain between one hour of time worked and one unit of value created.
Time cards and grueling days don’t help business leaders create value. We create value by what we do with time, not just by “putting in the hours”.
Here are five things that the world’s most successful business leaders do to produce massively more value than the average business executive.
They make travel decisions wherein they pay for more useful time. For billionaire entrepreneurs this means private jets that fly on their schedule, but for you and I it can mean paying more for a better class of service so you can work on that long flight. Or getting a driver or taking an Uber so you can get more valuable work done. Or paying for a flight choice that minimizes total travel time to save yourself 3 hours of travel time.
Strategically buying services and expertise to save time and get a better result.
Letting your team own ongoing responsibilities.
When they know their answer, they decide.
Other people may passively escape with unhealthy activities, not them.
They read books, listen to podcasts and audible books, always have something to write ideas down on, fill their transit time with things that nourish them or create value, and they exercise, recharge, and revitalize actively.
So consider this a wake-up call. How do you stack up on these five behaviors of the world’s most successful business leaders? When I observe our top business coaching clients, the ones who are growing fastest and have the best outcomes, I see the direct causal link to these behaviors.
