Leadership mentor, Steven Covey, in his book, “The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People”, describes a “time management quadrant” that categorizes any task as either “urgent” or “not urgent”, and “important” or “not important”. Chiropractors spend much of their day in quadrant one managing “urgent” and “important” tasks. While meaningful, this leaves little time for the most productive quadrant two – Identifying and planning our dreams. Delaying quadrant two means delaying our dreams, and unfortunately, waiting for a time that we are “not so busy” rarely happens.
Successful business leaders make quadrant two a priority. They block out one “rain maker” morning or afternoon per week, to focus on what is truly most important. If you don’t have time for this right now, you’re probably the person who needs it most. Start slowly by blocking out one shift per month for planning and fueling growth. Gradually increase the number of shifts that you spend in quadrant two and watch your dreams materialize.
