What makes you valuable? We all have one or two activities that are more valuable than the rest. If you’re not sure what your MVAs are, here’s a quick method to uncover them:
1. Write down all of your responsibilities.
2. Give each one an hourly value if you were to hire someone else to do it.
3. The one to two activities that have the highest value are your Most Valuable Activities.
The secret to productivity is focusing the majority of our time on those activities—and less time on everything else.
