The 3 Questions Effective CEO's Must Ask Daily
May 28, 2020
Kaylan Thompson

I'm learning to start my mornings in a new, massively productive way...
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Instead of always asking, "what do I need to do today?" first thing, I am now asking myself, "What should I NOT do today?" 
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
See, effective executives (or, knowledge workers - aka, YOU) should be in a constant pursuit of efficiency. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
However, there are a few never-ending antagonists to your efficiency. They are:
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
👉 The fact your time never feels like it belongs to you (from your clients to your team - you're always struggling with fighting for your own time)
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
👉You're still forced to work in the operations of your biz
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
👉 No matter what, you're still wholly INSIDE your biz, and you have to fight for a birds-eye view
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
To DAILY win this never-ending struggle, you should show up each day by first answering these questions and evaluating your time mercilessly:
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
❌ What should I NOT DO TODAY?
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
❌ What should I never do again?
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
❌ What should I (simplify first, then) release to my team?
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If you don't show up in this way, your list will continue to expand, expand, expand and you'll be functioning as a very inefficient CEO.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Eliminate ruthlessly, simplify mercilessly, and release/delegate immediately.🔥
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Don't worry, your to-do list will fill back up fast - you can repeat tomorrow 🤗
