Do you feel like your days are spent running from one thing to another and never getting anything done?

Do you look at those 5 and 10 minute gaps between speaking to this client and invoicing that client and picking the kids up from school and think, “That’s not enough time to do anything, why bother?”

Is your business suffering from not enough of your attention because there just isn’t time?

The disruptions of modern life are many and the quiet moments too few. If this all feels very familiar to you, don’t worry, you aren’t alone. But, that shouldn’t mean we just throw our hands up in the air in despair that nothing will change.

In the busy-ness of life, it is very easy to say, “I don’t have time to work on my business” and put off tasks that really need to be done. Well, it’s time to give your business the attention it needs!

This week on The Business Behind Your Business, Paul Sweeney looks at how you can work effectively on your business, even when you feel time-poor and the disruptions are many.
