I don’t know if you know this about me, but I’m a girly girl.
I could spend an entire day shopping in Sephora, growing up I had a completely pink room, and I have a weakness for sparkly jewelry.
But, I’m also pretty tough. My husband would probably tell you that I’m not the kind of person you want to mess with. When it comes to people, I have no problem speaking my mind and standing up for myself. However, when it comes to spiders, I have a hard time keeping my cool.
What I’m about to show you will only add to the girly girl factor and take away from the tough factor. I’m good with that. Brace yourself for a loud scream around the 2:06 mark and then press play.

Okay, now for the actual content. To make more time for your important work that will bring you closer to your professional goals, you need to take something that you’re currently doing that isn’t getting you any closer and ignore it, minimize it, or outsource it.
You want your work day to consist of mostly high leverage tasks that are getting you closer to your professional goal, and the only way to make this happen is to get rid of some of the other tasks. Again, you have three options in doing this: ignore it, minimize it, or outsource it.
