You might think that all it takes to achieve success as an entrepreneur is hard work. However, in order to maximize your effectiveness it takes more than simple hard work. It takes smart work. You have to think beyond working long, grueling hours and focus on efficiency instead.
Think about the big picture. Look not at each individual task, but at everything that you want to accomplish. Look to connect like-minded goals so you can keep your efforts focused. When prioritizing, tackle the big-ticket items first. Take up the tough tasks that you really need to complete and get them done. This will not only help you get your important tasks done faster, but it will leave you energized and motivated to continue down your to-do list.
