I want to spend mine making a difference – big or small, doesn’t matter. I just want to make a difference.
So, how do you do that when you have to juggle so many things every day?
I can only speak for myself in this regard, which I will share with you right now.
Decide what is important to you and then just go do it.
If you decide that you want to be in a fantastic, wonderful, profitable business – get a plan, get a team of advisor, surround yourself with excellence and then just DO it.
Don’t let anything stop you or stand in your way. Simple.
If you decide to raise fantastic, wonderful kids with a rockstar, loving spouse – get a plan, get a team of trusted advisors, surround yourself with excellence and then just DO it.
If you are like me and you want to play with some serious hobbies – get a plan, get a team of knowledgeable experts, surround yourself with excellence and then just DO it.
What if you already have all of these things going for you? And they are all important – all first priority? Your kids and spouse are the most important, of course. But, then, you must feed them too – which makes the profitable business equally important. And hobbies, who has time?
You do. If you get a plan, get a team, surround yourself with excellence and just do it.
Will you build your business as fast as the swashbuckling, jetsetting superstar entrepreneur? No and who cares, it will get built in your time, as you can.
In 20 yrs will your kids really care or even remember if you missed one soccer game, or burned the pan of boiling water, or didn’t make cookies for Back To School Night? No. But, they will remember that you always did your best. And that is the best way to lead them by example.
Hobbies, time alone, vacations? Well, what is at the top of your priority list?
It is your list – you get to decide. You also get to change this list, any time you want. If these are important, you will make the time to do them. And that, I believe, is the key to optimizing the most out of every day of your life. Decide what is important and then just go do it. Quit bellyaching about “time”, and just go do it.
After you have set your priorities, insist – no, DEMAND – that you do one thing, or part of one thing on this list of priorities every single day. Big or small.
If you do that every day, by the end of the week all those little things will add up to be a big thing. And after a month, those big things will add up to be a GREAT thing and after a year….
And then, you will have bragging rights, not complaints about time.
