Do you ever think (or say) that you “just don’t have enough time in the day” to accomplish what you need to? Well, you DO have enough time. You’re just not managing it all that well. Barring emergencies and crises, that’s because:
• Your priorities are wrong, spending more time on unimportant matters than important ones because they’re “easier.”
• You’re doing failure work, or worse, other people’s failure work, meaning redoing things not done correctly the first time.
• You’re working hard and not smart, not delegating or subcontracting, or you’re allowing distractions.
• You’re searching for perfection instead of “merely” success.
• You think you should always be “busy” and you don’t give yourself time to relax and recharge.
I could go on. You know every day has 24 hours. Stop wasting time by not doing things right the first time, or seeking higher levels of performance that aren’t necessary, or allowing others to “leave things on your (mental) desk.”
You can always make another dollar, but you can’t make another minute.
