The Sweet Spot: Things that you are good at, enjoy doing, give you energy and are of high value
Once you identify things in your Sweet Spot, then you need to identify things you are doing in addition that aren’t as valuable or are draining, and then itemize that.
All items are then broken down into 4 areas (see below). You want to spend the most time in your Sweet Spot.
“The best way to motivate someone is to take away things that de-motivate them” Jim Collins
Don’t motivate, declutter
S – Stop, what can be completely gotten rid of
O – Outsource, finding a third party source
D – Delegate, finding someone else on the team to hand stuff over to
A – Automate, software to automate tasks that you do manually
It is important to share these with the rest of the team. A task that you don’t enjoy doing is something that another team member may have as their sweet spot item and that task could be taken on by them.
