Are you consistently doing the work that you and only you can do? Or are you burdened by busywork, the bottleneck blocking your company’s profit and potential? Consider the last time you stayed as a guest at a friend’s house. You probably asked—within hours (if not minutes) of arriving—what’s your WiFi password? But did you take the next step of offering to document this and other info to save time answering questions for future guests? This question reflects an operating principle from the world of agile development: each time you repeat a task, take one step toward automating it, a simple way of thinking that makes life and business exponentially easier. This session will teach you how to make small investments now so you can create greater optionality—and Free Time—far into the future.
