The TIME of Your Life!
Consider the concept of compounding minutes. Another word for compounding is cumulative. Here in California we have great weather, but not much rain, so we have a cumulative effect of drought.
There is a cumulative value to investing small amounts of TIME in certain activities over a long period. For example, exercise, eating right, learning a skill, paying off debt or saving for the future. There is NO cumulative value to the random things we choose over important things.
A key element to maximizing the effective use of our TIME is to focus on our strengths. Here are a three ways we can do that.
- Discover what things you do that are not productive, and eliminate those things from your schedule. One thing for me is dumb TV shows. How many times do I need to see the same Seinfeld or Law and Order episode? (Oh sorry... my wife typed that!)
- Identify the areas that will be most beneficial for your personal and professional life.
- Give your best time to those areas that will have the biggest impact.

I REALLY need to grasp this stuff! Most of us are very busy with much on our plates. Managing our TIME more effectively is a key to our success. Understanding these basic principles will benefit us all.
As I mentioned, I don't do a great job managing time, but recognizing that this is a problem for me will help me focus on change. It would seem that I should have enough TIME to do that!
A great use of time would be to attend our fall Sail to Success Business Building Cruise. The cruise offers great education, productive networking and an opportunity to be refreshed so you will be more effective in your business. Our last cruise was a huge success as shown in this video.
