Have you ever been so busy making
money that you didn't have time to stop
to collect it? Administrative tasks like
billing clients need to be done routinely,
not randomly whenever you can find the
time. You need a system that makes time
for routine tasks and helps you focus on
getting your day-to-day work done.
Most builders make several false starts
before either giving up entirely or finding
something that works but is far from perfect.
The first strategy many builders try is
to schedule routine tasks for a particular
day of the week. Friday might be a good
day to do the billing because you can
review the outcome of the week's work.
