In 2016, my tech company was growing. Fast. I’d started scaling through systemizing, automation, and hiring a team, and by all counts it was going great.
Except that I was pulling my hair out to get the business admin work done. I was so busy! But I wasn’t too busy. In fact, my hours were dropping. Yet, whenever I felt like I finally had time to answer emails, develop documentation, or blog, a meeting came up, a phone call came in, and I lost my edge. I’d be exhausted by 3pm and couldn’t work anymore.
Then I discovered AB Days, and everything changed. I didn’t have to give up networking, client meetings, or strategy sessions with the team, but my productivity skyrocketed (as did my peace of mind).
What are AB Days? Simply put, it’s a method for segmenting your time so you have the space to get shit done. Literally, my A days are my action days. These are the days I schedule clients, take meetings, network, and give my time to others. I may get some business systems work done in between, but those days are set aside for meetings.
B days are my business days. This is when the internal work happens, and my calendar is blocked. Clients can’t schedule with me, I don’t go to coffee with colleagues, and I don’t take meetings. Segmenting a day or two a week to truly move my business forward I can take meetings on my A days knowing that everything is getting done.
