Jim Rohn says, “Time is our most valuable asset. Yet we tend to spend it, kill it, and waste it. Rather than invest it.” How are you investing in your time? Are you using it wisely or wasting it? Productive people become successful people because they consistently invest their time into their best activities. To be able to do that, they say no to more things than most people.
Did you do the same thing this morning that you did yesterday morning when you first woke up? Maybe you made a dash to the bathroom, brushed your teeth, or checked Facebook. Maybe you leaned over to kiss your sweetie, checked your emails, or stretched. Likely, you have weaved routines throughout your day and did not even realize it. After all, routines are just habits layered on top of each other.
Do you often feel inundated with tasks that never seem to get done? They could be pesky little ones that take only five minutes or colossal ones aimed at changing the course of your business, but you likely know what I’m talking about. In this digital era, we have every sort of productivity app imaginable at our fingertips and yet still, most business owners feel overwhelmed by the smorgasbord of tasks on their plate. What if I told you repurposing only one hour a week could vastly improve the extreme level of frustration and stress you feel juggling your never-ending tasks? Eliminate the Monday blues? Get back on track? Well, it can! You just have to use that hour with intentionality.
Who has time for a break? Not me! I am certain you have said some version of that phrase to yourself more often than you would like. Perhaps you may feel that to be most productive the best choice is often to work right through the day, put in a straight 8 to 12 hours consistently, eat at your desk, and work right through possible breaks.
I mean, come on, who has time for a break?
