DAY 2: IDENTIFYING YOUR ZONE OF GENIUS 

Welcome welcome! Yesterday we chatted all about getting your process out of your head. I asked you to write down everything that happens between a potential client contacting you and them booking and onboarding. Today we are going to sort through that list.

So go ahead and grab your list you made from yesterday and have it with you. While you do that, I’ll explain the purpose of the activity we are about to do. In order to move forward and get even more efficient, you need to identify some characteristics about each task you do - do you love doing it or not, are you good at it or not, does it fill you with joy or not, does it move your business forward or not, it it working for you and your style or not, etc.

Once we identify and categorize our activities, we are able to schedule them accordingly, AND… we can choose to get some of them off our plate.

So let’s dive in. Grab your workbook for today using the form below.

In your workbook, you’ll see a grid with 4 boxes. The left column boxes (top and bottom) are going to house all of the tasks you love to do. The right column boxes will house all of the tasks you don’t love to do. The top row boxes (right and left) will house the tasks that you are good at. And the bottom row boxes will house all of the tasks that you are not good at.

Now in order for this to work well, you need to be honest with yourself. Don’t put something in the left column if you don’t LOVE doing it. And don’t put it in the top row if you don’t feel good at it.

Okay, so now that we know what the grid means, we are going to take our list from yesterday and sort each tasks. You can do this one of two ways:

  1. Take each box and find the tasks that fit it. Start with the top left and find all of the tasks that you love to do and are good at. Write them all in that box. Then move on to the top right box. Find and write down all of the tasks that you don’t enjoy doing but are good at. Continue for the bottom row - tasks that you love to do but aren’t good at in the left box and tasks that you don’t enjoy and aren’t good at in the bottom right box.

  2. Go down your list and categorize each task, starting with the first task on your list then moving on to the second and third tasks.

Both are equally effective methods for categorizing your tasks. It just depends on you, how you think, and how you process information. For me, I go with the first method. I do better when I can think about one type of activity. For others, though, they will resonate more with the second method. Do what works for you!

The last thing I need you do with your list today is go through each box and put an asterisk (*) next to any tasks that is either a time waster or isn’t absolutely necessary for YOUR business. Notice I said for YOUR business. There are going to be some things that make your business unique and bring you more clients. You should absolutely keep those. But there are other things that are just a waste of time and don’t really have a return for you. These might be entering data into your CRM or going back and forth to schedule a meeting. Those obviously are time wasters but need to be kept. Customizing proposals (especially those of you that do wedding design) may consume a lot of time, but they are absolutely essential to your business. Okay, go

Come back on Tuesday to find out what we can do with each of these categories and how knowing this will make our businesses more effective and efficient.

REMINDER: We are taking a break on Monday. I’ll be in SF touring The Color Factory. I’d love for you to follow along with me on my insta-stories! We’ll be back live on Tuesday at 4pm pacific (7pm eastern) for Day 3.
