In episode 187 of Journey to $100 million, listen in to Kevin as he shares why it is important for him to guard and protect his time. Kevin’s time is very precious as the founder and CMO of Array Digital, where there is so much to do, with only so many hours in the day.
There is not any particular reason Kevin plans on figuring out how he can guard his time, but instead because he is tired of working full days (as well as nights and mornings), and still not being able to get to his important tasks. Kevin realized the need to focus on tasks that are not only important to himself, but the company as a whole. Not only that, but work is not all that is important – Kevin wants to ensure he is also leaving room for family time as well.
So, Kevin is going to start putting different processes in place to ensure he is utilizing his time in the best way possible. Kevin understands that there are certain things that he’s gotta be working on – and right now that is sales. But, if you look at Kevin’s day in a nutshell, there is a lot of administrative tasks, meetings, and client interactions that he has to take care of as well. All of those things are important, but there is not a whole lot of Kevin actually doing sales, calling prospects, or sitting down with Glen to hammer through a list of top prospects that we want to go through – which is the priority right now.
Time can get away from you really quickly and the next thing you know *boom* the day is over. It is important to block out and guard your time so that you can prioritize the tasks you must take care of. Be on the lookout for future episodes of Kevin talking about what he plans to do to guard and block his time in order to focus on the tasks that will help Array Digital continue to grow!
