Here’s one question for you today as a leader, business owner, entrepreneur or CEO — what are you doing with your time right now that is going to get you the best result for your future? Really think, analyze and ask yourself this question:
Is what I am doing right now going to get me the result that I want a year from now, two years from now, three years from now?
The reason for this question is because we are constantly talking to people about time. Time is the greatest asset in your company and in your personal life.
For all of us, the most precious thing we have is our time.
I’d like you to start thinking about your time as a multiplier; think of it as an investment. If you can do this and ask yourself the daily question about your time, then the next step is to get rid of the things in your daily schedule that you don’t need to do (or what we like to call the “Do Not Do List”). It’s not the “to do” list but it’s the “do not do” list — the things you don’t need to be or shouldn’t be doing. We want you to remove all those things out of your day-to-day schedule. We can teach you how to get these things out of your life, as well as show you how to teach others to do the same. Because by doing this, and consciously asking everyday: Is what I’m doing with my time right now going to get me the result I want a year from now, two years, etc.? — over time you’re going to narrow down and realize that there are probably only two, three or four things that you do really well that are going to have 80% of the impact on getting the results you want for your best future.
We really challenge you to say – okay, is what I’m doing right now really going to get me the results that I want or is this something I can put aside, decide it doesn’t need to be done, or is it something that can be done by somebody else (either at a later date or maybe outsourced). Because if you use your time as your greatest investment tool and leverage the results, this is one of the greatest predictors of where you’re going to be a year to three years from now. We all have the same amount of time. We all have the same ability to ask this question. Make this choice and ask yourself: Is what I’m doing right now the thing that needs to be done so that a year from now I can have the results that I want to have from my business or my personal life?
You know time is the greatest investment tool that you have. If you want to talk more about this or if you want to give us your answer to the question of what you’re doing with your time, please let us know. We’d love to start a conversation around time and how it’s tied to results for you personally and in your business a year to three years from now.
Make it a great day.
