“I saw my role in the business as absolutely everything minus the jobs that the staff were doing… there were just so many things I felt accountable for and I didn’t feel like I had enough hours in the day.”
A key factor in the success or failure of a business is time and how it’s utilised. Many business owners simply don’t value their own time and use it in the wrong places for the wrong objectives.
Just three months ago, Jacob Moffitt started his business ‘Movement Co’ and is an example of someone who struggled to manage their time.
“I was doing an average job of a lot of things rather than a fantastic job at a few things.”
Jacob knew he was good at planning the business's goals and objectives but was less effective at implementing and ‘getting shit done’.
Jacob was drowning in debt and with an impossible workload he really couldn’t keep up.
Three months on, Jacob has reduced the time he spends in the gym by two days per week and has seen a 30% increase in member numbers. So how did he do it?
Jacob realised that he was the limiting factor and that he was getting in the way of himself.
Jacob fired himself from the things that were not the best use of time and the things he wasn’t the best at. He empowered others to do the smaller jobs so he could focus on the leadership, marketing and vision of the business. He then had greater clarity around ‘switching off the things that weren’t working and switching on the things that were.’
Through empowering his team members, Jacob not only reduced his own workload, he created an environment of self-purposed driven individuals, walking their own path to self-mastery.
Along with the huge increase in success of his business, Jacob has seen massive increase in his energy levels through taking a few days out of the business each week. Jacob even takes time to teach classes now because it’s what he really loves doing in the business and it gives him a chance to meet his members and learn how to serve them in a deeper way.
Through focusing his time on the most important aspects of the business and empowering his team, Jacob has made some remarkable improvements in a very short time frame.
