Stop Wasting Time On Low Value Work

One of the most important lessons I learned about entrepreneurship can be summed up in one simple sentence:

Stop Wasting Time On Low Value Work.

It seems so simple.

And yet...

Do you book your own flights?

Do you schedule your own meetings?

Do you handle all the other "nitty gritty" stuff that can easily be outsource to someone for 10 bucks an hour?

The more time you spend on low value work (like writing a YouTube description for a video, as an example), the less time you can spend on doing things that are "high value work."

Even though I've practiced this for quite some time, I love how John Bassett summed it up in Factory Man. Let someone else do your ipading and emailing.
