DAY #43 OF 365 | Monday, February 12th, 2024

YESTERDAY’S RECAP

If you missed yesterday’s AMPLIFY DAILY, I shared a story about how actor Michael Caine approaches his craft that I read on Sahil Bloom’s LinkedIn page recently….

It was on Michael Caine’s defining philosophy on life…

Which is surmised by 3 words, “Use the Difficulty…”

How can you sow the seeds of your light during the periods of darkness?

As with everything in life, control the controllable…

The difficulty is already there, you can’t control it.

You can control how you react to it.

Managing A Global Team From My Cell Phone…

In today’s video, I give a snapshot of the google calendar overview I use to manage my day and my life.

This daily update gives me the links to all my master tracking documents for every single department in my business…

As well as all the areas of focus I need to keep top of mind daily in my business and life for 2024.

In 2023, I managed as many as 35 contractors across various countries, time zones and different parts of the business…

And I had to figure out an efficient way to keep everything out in front of me…

Because the company was at that uncomfortable tween size where we were growing the number of people…

But not yet at a place where we had a dedicated OPS team in place to mange the work…

So it was me, no longer doing the doing, but by default, managing the doing…

Sometimes just from my cell phone…

And I needed to put a structure in place where the systems and processes managed the doing…

And all I needed to do was check-in to make sure the right checks and balances were in place with the systems and processes…

So that the right projects in the right priority were getting scheduled and worked on daily…

Without me needing to have to talk to team members daily…

But still being able to have visibility at a glance into what they were working on each day, prior to the workday starting…

What they completed at the end of each workday…

And what they had planned for the following workday.

That’s the project and process management system that I’ve built…

And it has allowed me to manage dozens of team members around the world…

At times from my cell phone…

Pretty seamlessly, and without losing my mind.

It took A LOT of work, trial and error, and mental exhaustion figuring out a structure that works…

But now that I’ve got it, I’m able to manage dozens of team members with very little time, energy or attention needed from me…

In order to get the machine running at full speed daily.

Today I’ll just give you a brief overview of the structure, but I’ll walk through it in more detail in the coming days.
