Over the past week, I’ve done a lot of dancing in my office chair. You see, my private Facebook group, Productivity for Women Entrepreneurs (join us!), DOUBLED in size last week and I do a little happy dance everytime someone requests to join.
And I’m having conversations with people as they join and something that’s popped up a couple times is “I’m spending a lot of time doing things, but it’s not turning into money.”
I’ve spent some time thinking about this the last few days.
The truth is, there’s a lot of things that can contribute to that situation.
This week, I want to talk about the difference between urgent and important.
While they are related, they are not the same thing.
Let me share a conversation I had with someone a while ago.
Rhonda and I were talking (that’s not really her name) and she shared that she needed to make more money that month. So, we talked about everything she was currently working on and wanted to get done.
After a bit, Rhonda said: “You know, I really need to send this client an invoice next week. I probably should have sent it two weeks ago, but I’m just too busy.”
I’d like to say that I’ve never heard anything like this before, but I have.
Why does this happen?
Because sending an invoice is important, but it’s not always considered urgent – until it’s really urgent.
Now, I’m not saying that this is always what’s going on in the situation of someone “doing a lot, but it’s not turning into money.”
However, it is something to look at.
So, for this week’s Wednesday LIVE with Evie, we’ll be talking more about the difference between urgent and important. You can watch the video here.
