How do I know if I have an objective based staffing model or a personnel based staffing model?

Do you have staff right now?
Answer this question, 

"How do I know if I have one, objective based or personnel based?"

If you've ever said any one of these questions:
"If Mark left us, we'd be screwed."
"How can I ever replace Jen? That Jen, she's my right hand. I need her.
“Steve, we just need to clone you and we'd be good. If we could clone you like four times, then I would have everything I need because you just know what I need before I even say it, right?
“No one will ever be able to fill Monica's shoes."

You must have been sitting there.
"No one will ever be able to fill Monica's shoes ever."
Or this one. This is what we hear a lot.
"I'd love to hire someone, but I have no idea what they would do all day."

If these are the questions that you have in your head, which model do you currently have in your business?

Personnel based.
Like I said, 90% of them do.

For the first few months of this pandemic, we always just thought, "Oh, we'll just get through it." And everybody was like,"Oh yeah, no big deal. We'll just wait it out. It'll be all right. We'll get this loan. We'll get this grant. And then we'll be fine."
But that money has been here.
That money, if you got it, is now spent.

And so now everybody's trying to figure out what's next. 
How do we get through this?
Knowing that there's not necessarily an end in sight.
And even if you're open right now, it does not mean that you're going to be open for the long haul. Because as we know across the country, things are changing.
Some people were open. Some people are closing again.
When, once school gets started again, we have no idea what these restrictions are going to do. They're going to ebb and flow. They're going to change all the time. You need to be prepared.

How do you plan to have an effective, efficient, productive day tomorrow?

I will share a really quick strategy I’ve been doing for some time now.

Now the official rule on this is, do not make a big deal out of this.

Don't go and get a notebook.

Don't go and get some special journal.

Just take the notes section of your phone, as soon as you're done reading this.

Jot down quick, top of mind, three to five things that you need to get done tomorrow in order to have a productive day.

Remember this, work can be done and organized in one of two ways.

You can either organize your work day by time, like an hourly worker, or you can organize it by task, like a salaried worker.

Time blocking, if you’re curious, is simple:

  • Add all your daily or weekly tasks to a to-do list
  • Select specific time slots in your calendar and reserve them for the tasks
