Best of Mentoring: Dave Crenshaw on Switching Costs
Dave Crenshaw’s mentoring series teaches the power of focus, and how the maximize productivity and overcome chaos. He discusses how to budget your time, prioritize your most valuable position, and say no to tasks that distract you from where you would be more valuable.
In this session, Dave talks about how much switching from one task to another costs small businesses in in time and productivity. Switching costs can take up to an entire workweek each month. The solution, Dave suggests, is to build a schedule that focuses on what you do best, and follow the Order of Offloading instead of the Order of Abdication.
