Key Points From This Episode:
- For Thomas, time is his most valuable asset that’s why he practices a three-stage process which he calls eliminate, automate, delegate.
- First, eliminate something that’s not worth for anyone on your team to do.
- Second, automate. Streamline the process as best as you can so you don’t have to worry about the things that you need to do on a regular basis.
- Third, delegate as much as you can. You don’t have to do everything on your own.
- Delegation is something that you need to work on. It doesn’t happen overnight.
- We’re looking for progress, not perfection.
- What does Thomas’ calendar typically look like?
- Thomas emphasizes the importance of building a team around you and to trust and invest in them.
- People are scared of taking action because of the consequences but Thomas believes that no one’s going to invest in you the way you will invest in yourself.
- How does he prepare for a downturn?
- How does he like to give back?
“Eliminate, automate and delegate. I try and do as little as possible. My time is the most valuable asset for me, and that’s where I try and keep it. That way, I’m able to only work 30-35 hours a week.” [0:04:07.0]
“It’s very important to build a team around you, it’s very important to trust in your team, and if they fail, it’s fine. You know what I mean? Help them get back up, help them get back on their feet and kind of guide them in the right direction. If you spend $60,000, $100,000 on an office admin or a project manager for a year and they mess something up, it doesn’t make sense to fire them because you just spent $100,000 to train them.” [0:11:14.0]
“It’s about taking action. A lot of people would rather not take action because it’s easier not to take action as opposed to doing something about it, so they need to set up actionable steps for themselves, and something that’s really helped me is my auto-suggestion.” [0:13:37.1]
