Making things simpler to have more time
We all want to do many things, but often we don't have the time to do those things. What if we made things easier and simpler so we can create, or better still, not waste time on silly things to be able to do them?
Giving value to time
I've been thinking past few days about giving value to time. Now we all talk about, our time... my time is valuable. Everyone's time is valuable, etc. But we don't actually really think about what that means.
Time is your most valuable asset
So, if I asked you what your most valuable asset was while you were running your business, in your business, what would your answer be? I know what my answer is, and that's time. And I think a lot of people don't quite understand that.
We struggle to keep our day free of distractions. We struggle to find quality time for our loved ones. We even struggle to find answers to easy questions. But are we looking in the right place to fix these things? I doubt it. I know, because I felt the same way many years ago.
Be mindful with your time
The ability to spend your time the way you need to is a superpower, and many don’t quite understand it. And if you give away any of that power to someone else, your day can become a mess.
Do you value your time?
Time is something we all don’t have much of, even though we think we do. So why would you not value your time? Talking to my clients it seems this simple question has often resulted in the wrong answer.
I’ve had enough! I’m just WAY too busy!
Yep, sorry, I just don’t have the time! How many times have you said that to yourself, a colleague or a friend? I bet it's way more than you think it is. I’m an avid believer that no one on the planet should EVER be busy.
Fewer complications lead to more time
It's mathematics, pure and simple. If we complicate things, we end up having to deal with so much crap that we end up wasting time.
How often do you check your email?
What if I told you that only checking your email mailbox once or twice a day will get you more productive and your world won’t burn to the ground?
