So much time can be wasted by switching between different types of tasks and by commuting times to meeting. This is dead time. Because, not only does your brain need to switch a gear when you are transitioning between tasks, but you also need to shift your energy.

Working ‘on’ your business can be a fun and fascinating exercise as it will lift your thinking to consider the future and how you would really like that to be. It means taking control of your business...
