EP 095: Buying Back Your Time vs Being More Efficient

Time management is one of the most important disciplines for business owners to get right.

I’d go as far as to say…
Time management can be the reason for your success or failure.

Now, don’t get me wrong here.

I’m not talking about…

The “grind.”

Far from it, actually.

The time you spend on your business and the money you make from it aren’t connected.

I know, I know…

This goes against everything you’ve ever been taught…

But think about it for a second.

The amount of time I spend on my property portfolio doesn’t reflect the money I make from it.

And the same is true for business.

If you level up the way you use your time, your income will level up too.

If you’re a business owner that spends their day providing services,

Why not….
– Try outsourcing those responsibilities to another business?
– Try automating a part of delivery?
– Try off-shore team members?

How would your business perform if you were more focused on managing it rather than running it?


It doesn’t have to be as drastic as this.


Why not start by outsourcing household chores?

Or outsource the time it takes to cook every evening?

It’s easy—just hire a cleaner and order ready-made meals instead.

If you can remove the things that take up your time,

You can do more of the tasks that pay outsized returns.

( Or… Alternatively, you can spend more time doing things that make you happy. )

While this may seem counterintuitive,

I’ve noticed it more recently.

When I manage my energy and my happiness…
More success and greater results come from it

These have been critical drivers for me.


If playing golf gives you energy and prevents you from burnout,

It’s worth it!

Time management isn’t about grinding through another day.

It’s about maximising the effect of your time by completing the tasks that will have the most impact.
