Buy Back Your Time by Dan Martell
A Short Summary:
Buy Back Your Time has one persistent and important theme: Get the most value out of your life.
This book challenges you to rethink where you're spending your time and to question why you haven't optimized it yet. By doing so, you can give more minutes to the places in your life that feed your soul and allow you to benefit from your zone of genius.
My Top 3 Takeaways:
1. Audit, Transfer, Fill. Where are you stuck spending minutes that don’t feed your soul or benefit from your capabilities?
2. Personal - The Drip Model and the Role of an Assistant.
3. The Business - The Replacement Ladder
The Changes I’ve Implemented Because of This Book: 1. I conducted the Time-Energy Audit 2. I'm in the process of hiring an assistant 3. I brought the Replacement Ladder to my next SLT Meeting - Where are we?
