Georges Verdis joined Steve for an inspirational journey through a story that began with Georges as an estate agent in London, sometimes working up to 50 hours per week, which caused his personal life to suffer. However, in 6 months, Georges had built systems into his business that allowed things to function without him.
In this show, Georges talks to Steve about how he overcame the many challenges in creating these systems, how he also restructured his mindset and why it matters, and the importance of ensuring that we strike a healthy work/life balance times.
- Freeing ourselves from the pressures of business to spend more quality time with family means not just fewer visits to the office. It means cutting the cord completely. It is also about being totally present.
- Breaking down every available individual task is crucial. Once this is done, we can assign each task to an individual workforce member, along with instruction on how to perform it. If no instructions exist, they are created as the task is completed.
- You do not need to know the outcome of something. You are attempting to get help in doing it. It doesn’t matter who attempts the task. We need to know if it is achievable and if we also find the win there.
- When we seek to implement systems that free us from a business, there is always generally a fear of letting go. This is accompanied by excitement at the possibilities ahead if the systems work.
- Implementing systems and creating instructions for others to follow may seem daunting. But once a task has been systemised and documented, we never have to do it again. If we build incrementally, all tasks can be written and systemised in a concise time.
It was a gradual process to let go of things.
It’s all about recording whatever is done in your business.
If I can focus and spend my day in these three areas, it’s a win.
Sometimes I pinch myself and say, “This thing is really working by itself.”
You see the world from a very different perspective.
