As CEO, you’re responsible for the overall success of the business. You set the vision, make the important decisions, and are ultimately accountable for the company’s overall success. But do you feel that sometimes the business is running you, versus you running the business?  Putting in countless hours to keep the business running and operating at peak efficiency. You’ve learned that time is your most precious resource but how do you break the cycle and your quality of life back?

First, why is time your most precious resource? CEOs have a limited amount of time to get things done. You have to juggle a wide range of responsibilities, from meeting with customers and investors to setting strategy and managing the company’s finances. Second, every minute your spend on something is a minute that could be spent on something else that could have a bigger impact on the company. Third, your time is irreplaceable. Once a minute is gone, it’s gone forever.

For these reasons, it’s important to be very mindful of how your time is spent. You need to ensure you’re only spending time on the most important activities. You also need to be efficient with your time and avoid wasting it on things that aren’t productive.

Here are a few tips for CEOs on how to make the most of their time:

  • Set priorities. The first step to managing your time effectively is to set priorities. What are the most important things that you need to accomplish? Once you know your priorities, you can start to allocate your time accordingly.
  • Delegate. Don’t try to do everything yourself. Delegate tasks to your team members so that you can free up your time for more important things.
  • Eliminate distractions. When you’re trying to focus on something, it’s important to eliminate distractions. This means turning off your phone, closing your email, and finding a quiet place to work.
  • Take breaks. It’s also important to take breaks throughout the day. This will help you to stay focused and productive.
