Featured episode: Episode 107 – Free Time: How to Reduce Overwhelm, Burnout, & Busywork – with Jenny Blake
Jenny Blake is a podcaster and author who helps entrepreneurs move from friction to flow through smarter systems, powered by Delightfully Tiny Teams. Her third book, “Free Time,” launched on March 22.
It’s easy to get caught up in just getting things done without really stopping to think how it could get done faster or better—or if you’re really the right person to be getting it done at all. “Free Time” is made specifically for people who are struggling with busy work. This is what Jenny calls the bottleneck in the way of your profit and potential.
After reading the book, I’ve been thinking about my business and what I do in it completely differently. I’m so excited for the rest of the world to get ahold of this.
Remember the three components of the Free Time framework:
- Align—should you be doing this in the first place? If something about the work is not aligned, how can you realign it and recalibrate? Think about how you are systematizing the spirit of your business. Remember, there’s no point in optimizing something that no longer needs to be done.
- Design—get clarity and be intentional in designing how you’re going to tackle the work before you start.
- Assign—ensure you can stay focused on the work that you’re uniquely gifted to do. Delegate everything else that you can.
