5 Ways to Weed out Your Business Mind
This blog post was inspired by a post on the Marc and Angel Hack Life Blog.
I love Hack Life blogs because you will find unusual shortcuts that are easy to learn. I find it hard to incorporate a short cut that takes 3 hours to learn and 60 days of practice to be of use to you. I recommend this blog as a regular read for Wright Place TV Viewers because you are busy, smart and always looking for a slight edge.

Weeding out your business mind means, getting rid of some of the projects you are working on. Frankly, they are keeping you from projects that could make you money or otherwise get your closer to your goals.
1. The organizing projects: Treat yourself to something nice. Have SOMEONE ELSE organize things for you so you can focus on making more money
2. Drop some events: Some of the things you are attending will not bring you closer to your customers, future customers or future business partners. They are just busy time to get you out of the office. Volunteering for a non- profit does not fall into this category. However, some of those ?networking? events you have committed to do.
3. Dump the newsletters: Seriously, if you have not read the ezine or printed newsletter, drop yourself from the list. Having a bunch of stuff you never got to or read is a drain on your mind power. At this point I never add a newsletter without dropping one I already get.
4. Limit the time: There are some things I work on and for some reason, never complete or get to work correctly. I work on them for a certain period of time and then I move on. Spending days on a non-essential item can really be a time and mind drain. I also like to time how long it takes me to do certain things so that when I delegate them, I know how long it should take someone else to do it for me. An excellent tool for this is the Action Machine
5. Admit it: Some of the things on your list are no longer a priority. At the time of this post, I am working on my biggest event of the year, the High Tea. This event happens in a few days and nothing else has priority. People who are requesting things have to wait until after the event. When priorities change, some things get dropped by the wayside. It?s fine, which is how it is supposed to be. You cannot keep adding things to your plate without taking others off. Everyone has limited time and not all opportunities can be taken advantage of 100 % of the time.
Give yourself a break!
