The Dash Between Two Dates
Let's face it. We're all busier than ever. Most of the busyness is dashing—dashing here, dashing there. Sadly, many people's lives will be summed up by a dash. A dash between the day when they were born and the day they died listed on their tombstone. Many people miss the opportunity to create wealth and to leave a legacy for their family and for the world because they are so busy dashing.
To break the cycle of dashing, it's important to begin with the end in mind. What do you want your life to look like? What wealth do you want to build? What legacy do you want to leave for your family and for the world? Once you know the answers to these questions, then you can start working backwards. Determine what those critical activities are to achieve these goals and delegate-or eliminate-the dashing in your life.
You can create wealth. You can leave a legacy for your family and for this world. You just need to spend a lot less time dashing and a lot more time planning and executing the life of your dreams.
