All businesses should have good processes. Processes, when followed, are great for achieving reliable, repeatable results. Sometimes, however, we can over-process our businesses because we forget that the objective is the results, not the successful execution of the process.
The key modus operandi for any small business owner wanting to use their time effectively, should be to always use the minimum amount of process necessary to achieve the desired results.
As an example.
- Never write an email if a conversation will do and
- Never call a meeting if an email would cover it
- Never call a 1hr meeting when a 15 minute meeting will do and
- Never have meetings without purposes such that 2nd and 3rd meetings are required.
