Life is About”Time Management” How Well do you Manage Your Time?

Morning Folks!!


So many wonder why they are not having the results they would like. But I find one thing interesting. I have been retired or semi-retired since 1998. But even in my state I start earlier in the morning and work later at night than most. But to me it is not work. It is called 'Life' and my work is weaved in it. So I look forward to Monday when others dread it.


My job is to get up before the sun and do more work before breakfast than most folks will do next week. I start and finish projects. I plant seeds. I learn new things. I test new whatever. I read the headlines. I check the market. I make decisions. I set a course. I make a list every Monday of things that MUST be accomplished that week. I make sure I use my time wisely and don't waste time on 'Gopher' things. I do most of my purchases on Amazon so I don't piss away time doing the same thing and having to run all over town. I don't leave this keyboard unless there is a REASON to do so.


The ONLY natural resource any of us have is 'Time.' That's it and it is limited. Not only is it limited it usually does not come with a meter to let you know when it is running low. Time. Nothing matters more. So making the most of your TIME is the true key. How much time do you waste? Don't laugh. It's really not funny.


When you can prioritize life, you will never have to work again. Read that once more. When you can prioritize life, you will never have to work again. You will find more time than you knew existed and when you find those extra hours you will produce $$$, be more effective and use less energy. But if you are a SLAVE to the bad TIME habits you might have found comfortable over the years, they are actually the chains that hold you back.


You know the type. Always too busy to do anything but accomplishes nothing as opposed to the guy that is busy as hell and always finds TIME to do whatever is needed, whenever it is needed. That is what is the TRUE dividing line in life. The doers and the talkers. The talkers look at it as an insurmountable workload and then their mind does not allow them to do the job and be successful. The doers don't say a word. They just do. They just roll up their sleeves and make whatever is needed HAPPEN. So which are you? Which do you want to be? You do have the control to change it if you are willing to STOP. Stop and consider. Stop and take a deep breath. Stop and question why you are not where you see yourself?


I can never stop a winner and I can never make a loser. Only you have that power and it is your attitude and approach that determines your destiny and success more than any other factor. Olympians are champions because of strong minds not strong bodies. Anyone can make a strong body. But it is how you use the body controlled by the mind that counts. That separates the winners from the losers. Study Olympians and their discipline and you apply that to anything in life and you will be a winner, a champion.


Have a GREAT Day!

    Feel free to delete, but as a Muslim I just have to mention it reminds me of the first two verses of the shortest chapter in Islam’s Holy Book:
    103:1 By the time! —
    103:2 Surely man is in loss,
    103:3 Except those who believe and do good, and exhort one another to Truth, and exhort one another to patience.

    Rick,
    If you never posted again it would not be necessary. You just gave away the trade secrets that others have repeatedly asked you to reveal and that have made you a successful business millionaire.
    Time management
    dedication
    discipline
    Wanna bet you get a post with the question”So, how did you do it?” despite revealing the secret in black and white in this post?
    Some get it
    Some might get it
    Tragically some never will
    and the reason is this
    Losers look to the outside for answers when just like Dorothys ruby slippers they had the answer in them all the time but just didn’t realize it.
    You just revealed the ruby slippers that each of us have at our disposal and need only to realize then activate the powers within them to succeed.
    My advice to anyone that aspires to business success or financial wealth.
    Print this post twice (in case you lose one) then read it in the morning at lunch and before going to bed every day until the amazing truth within its words spreads to your mind and to every fiber of your body.
    Brilliant!

    One the best questions anyone can ask, at any given time, is the folowing:
    What is the BEST use of my TIME right now?
    You control your life only when you manage your time effectively and efficiently.

    Wise words – one has to prioritize and eliminate uses of time which are not productive. I had to ask myself how effectively my time was being spent going through Namejet & Snapnames backorder lists (98% is junk & the bidding competition for that rare domain is too intense). Going through a droplist of 5K junk domains to find nothing – how effective a use of one’s time is that? Periodically I have done end user email marketing but also have found that to be ineffective so put that effort on hold as well. Sometimes one has to be persistent or just patient but there is a difference between persistence and pushing against a brick wall.
    If something isn’t working, you have to be flexible and change course.

    Rick, This was actually a very good posting. And timely inspirational here.
    I think as fundamental as this part is, it’s so often disregarded:
    “”When you can prioritize life, ….. You will find more time than you knew existed and when you find those extra hours you will produce $$$, be more effective and use less energy. But if you are a SLAVE to the bad TIME habits you might have found comfortable over the years, they are actually the chains that hold you back.””
    It’s so easy to fall into a ‘comfort zone routine’, and not even know you’re there.
    Nice ‘shoulder shake’ post. Thx.
