The Time Solution

The Time Solution is a coaching process that we use with our clients. It is basically used to address the one thing that 90% of businesses have never accounted for in their business and that is:

How, why and where are they using their time

By having an actual audit or accounting system of time, you can make sure everybody in the business is aware that time is actually of more value than the money or the capital that’s being invested in the business.

We’ve created this process to teach and coach people how to capitalize on their time. In our process, we show that by saving 15 minutes a day, an average company over the next couple of years, can reinvest that time into profit making time and actually turn that into a million dollars for the business owner. It’s a transformational process, and it’s a process that only takes 90 days to do. It makes you look at time like you look at your checkbook — like you look at your financial statement — like you look at all the other investments you make. It also teaches, trains and helps everyone on your team to look at time and evaluate it in the way that it should be valued. If we use our time wisely, and we use it better and more effectively than our competitors, then we have an unfair advantage over everyone else in our industry.

Yet time is the one thing that nobody accounts for. Everybody’s always talking about saving money in their business, company or corporation, but nobody ever sits down and talks about how they can save time. Time actually equals, if repurposed, into the most profitable activity you can do. So sit down and have this conversation. Look at the process. Ask the difficult questions and actually start to get a phenomenal 10x return on your time.

Time as a Tool

Have you ever thought about time as a tool just like you? You have tools in your business – computers, machines, trucks, etc. — all different kinds of things that you have in your business that are tools that help you be more productive. They help you create an experience or a product for your clients.

I’ll ask you again — Have you thought about your time as a tool? If you have a tool, you know you want that tool to operate at its optimum capacity, and if time is your greatest tool, are you connecting your time and the most productivity? In other words, what’s the most productivity you can get from your time? How can you maximize the tool of time that you have in order for you to get the results that you want from your life, from your business, from your relationships?

Because time ultimately is the greatest leverage.

It is the greatest tool that we have in our life and in our business as business owners, entrepreneurs and CEOs.

Stop and pause and ask yourself, “Okay, am I thinking about time as a tool? And if it is a tool, how am I leveraging my time in order that it gets the greatest result for what I want out of my life? And how am I investing in this tool so that I can be where I want to be a year from now or three years from now in order to be at my best and have a bigger better future.”

So time is a tool.

We would love to talk to you about this. We do a lot of of coaching around time. Time is the greatest asset for every company, every business, every entrepreneur, every person. Just reach out to us.

One Thing

What is the One Thing today that will improve your confidence? We’re going to talk about confidence again and focus on one thing or one habit perhaps. What would be a confidence habit that you could create that would serve you the rest of your life to improve, increase and protect your confidence? For me it’s sleeping. It’s exercise. It’s reading good material. It’s coaching. It’s being in front of people live or virtually and coaching them, encouraging them, giving them confidence, and transforming their experience.

But what does that look like for you and what is that one habit. Now we talked a couple of weeks ago about what gives you confidence; but what’s the one thing? It’s like a rocket booster for your confidence that you could put into your life everyday. You can invest the time — maybe it’s five minutes, maybe it’s 15 minutes, maybe it’s longer than that.

But what’s the return on investment if we invested in that One Thing that gives you confidence? I’d love to hear from you what that One Thing is and how you’re applying it.

What the Habit is, what it does for you, and how you’ve used it in the past. Think about times when you’ve really had a lot of confidence and you’ve been able to do some amazing things.

What was the thing that triggered that…

So we’re looking for for that One Thing, that one habit, that one trigger and then, we’re looking to build that into our life every day.

Who’s Messing With Your Confidence

Who or what is messing with your confidence?

Have you ever thought about this? Last week we talked about what gives you confidence, and we focused on that.

Confidence gives us the ability to achieve, grow and to be all the things that we want to be.

But one of the areas that you need to think about in the area of confidence is — who’s messing with your confidence? What is messing with your confidence? Is there a negative person in your life or maybe you’re not getting enough sleep? Could it be that you feel like you’re overweight or you’re out of shape and that’s the thing that’s messing with your confidence? Maybe it’s a mess in your life — maybe some mess in your garage or at your office or maybe it’s a difficult conversation that you’ve procrastinated on for 3 to 6 months or even a year. Maybe your confidence is being drained by not making a decision that you need to make to move forward. Get back to me and send me an email about what’s messing with your confidence or schedule a free consultation. I’d love to talk to you about it.

Confidence Question

At Confidence Coach we talk and teach about confidence all the time. Here’s a question for you today:  Have you ever stopped and thought about what gives you confidence in your business and in your personal life?

And then: What kind of activities, thinking or things do you do that bring you confidence? Are the people that you are around helping to give you confidence?

The reason why this is so important is if we have our confidence growing, then we’re able to grow the rest of our life. We’re also able to grow our business or personal relationships and everything gets bigger and better.

But without confidence, without greater confidence, and continued confidence, we can get stuck or we can even go backwards!

So, I want you to think today about three things that give you confidence and send me an email to share your answers with me. Here’s a few examples — Maybe it’s a good night’s rest; reading a book; exercising; calling that prospect that you’re afraid to call; it might be leading a meeting at your company; how about that new joint venture that you’ve put together; or maybe a date night with your wife; maybe going to your kid’s ball game or it could be a million different things.

But think about it, and let me know what gives you confidence or schedule a free appointment to talk about it.

The Power Of Delegation

Do you own your business, or does your business own you? Are you getting results that you set out to get? Or do you have a really, really hard job?

Without knowing you, I know why you started your business: your dream was to have freedom. To have time and money. But, by doing all that you do, have you created just the opposite for your life?

You own your business. You have your employees. You’ve been in business successfully for a number of years. But are you making your business dependent on you? Or are you growing it to be independent of you?

To move you a step closer to your goal of freedom, I’ll throw out a challenge to you today: Before you do any task in your business, you first have to answer the question, why am I doing this? Can somebody else do this? And what are the 1-2 things in this business that are my genius, that nobody else can do? How can you organize your time to focus on only those things?

Let me know how much time I’ve freed up for you over the next year, five years, even ten years. And if you want to know more, reach out. Sign up for a free coaching session. We’d love to talk to you about it.

relationships

Service & Success Are Married

Here’s a thought for you: Business and marriage aren’t really all that different. There’s one common success principle in both scenarios: The more we think about serving others, the more successful our business and marriage becomes. The Bible says the greatest among you will be the one who serves the most people, which makes me think of today’s fastest growing companies: places like Airbnb, Facebook, Google, and Uber. They find ways to serve millions of people, in often the most basic ways, and that service is getting them results. I think of the best long-term marriages I know, and they all have one thing in common: They’re thinking about serving their spouse every day, for a lifetime.

Service and success are married — and service is the key to the results that you want.

Steps For Transformation: You Decide

If you’re like most CEO’s or entrepreneurs, you always have the next steps planned — and you’re pretty confident about what the results will be. That’s fine and all, but don’t you think it’s playing it just a little too safe? In our coaching we call this “arranging.” This type of planning or prep does not bring the great result or the huge transformation that we’re always hoping to see. In our coaching we ask a different question: What would transform your entire business? This is a total paradigm shift, because this is now about ideas and strategies that are total game changers.

Are you thinking in a transformational way? Or is something in the way in your mind? Are you blocking yourself from becoming all you can be? Let’s talk about it.

Who Needs A Coach?

Who needs a coach? Only the business owner or CEO who dares to be held to a higher accountability for a bigger future. If we think of all the people we know who are successful in life, what is one thing they all have in common? They all have a coach, a mentor, a consultant, somebody that they’re learning from, being guided by, somebody who’s asking them the hard questions. Somebody who is holding the belief that they could be more, somebody who’s reminding them of it until they actually get there. Someone who believes in your hopes, your dreams, and your aspirations, and supports you as you go through the process of achieving them.

What about you? Do you need a coach?

Planning ahead

Why We All Need To Play The Long Game

This is seriously counterintuitive thinking in today’s instant gratification world, but here it is: we need to think of our business, our employees, and our customers in the sense of a lifetime. We all need to play the long game. So here’s my question to you: What’s the long game for your business? Where do you want to be ten years from now?

What’s the long game for your employees? Why will they be positively contributing ten years from now?

What’s the long game for your customers? How will their needs change ten years from now?

Focusing on this brings in a bit of double vision: Having a successful business today is important, of course, but it has to be coupled with your plans for a successful business ten years from now. The long game is what all successful long-term businesses do well. So what is your long game?

Schedule a free coaching session here if you want help figuring it out.
