“Simplicity boils down to two steps: Identify the essential. Eliminate the rest.”

TIP: How do you do this? Make a list of everything you do in a week (or month). You can focus on your business or your whole life. Then go back and rate each item as HIGH, MEDIUM or LOW value. High would be something that’s valuable and brings time, energy (worth) or profitability to your life. Low is something that you do for some reason but it does not have high returns. Look at how you can eliminate the low activities. Next, go back and rate the high and medium activities as how much this activity needs of YOU: ALL, SOME, LITTLE. Sometimes we spend our valuable time doing things that someone else could be doing. If there are things that with some direction could easily be done by someone else (need a LITTLE of you), delegate it or redesign it. The medium and some give you a little variance, but really the ESSENTIAL are things that need ALL of you and are HIGH importance. Try it!
