Me: How are you? Them: I'm busy!
This podcast could be the difference between persisting in mediocrity or smashing your business targets for the year. This could be the difference between working 12 hour days to working 4 hour days and taking more vacations.
Let me ask you one question...
How busy are you? What does it mean to be busy? Are you moving the needle? Are you moving toward your dream life? How do you measure busy? Is busy good or bad? WHAT DOES BUSY MEAN?
What if we changed the narrative with our time? What if we started to become productive... rather than busy?
If you did a time study right now, what percentage of your work is moving the needle forward and what percentage of your work is just "doing tasks?"
Your day needs to be measured in PRODUCTIVITY.
I want to get to the end of the day and know that I have been PRODUCTIVE, not that I have been busy.
What does it require to be productive instead of busy? Number one, you need to know what you're working toward. Two: You need to be able to write down on a map what steps are required to get you where you're going, and if you don't know, find somebody who knows and ask them. Three: Write down the tasks you need to do to get there and then break it down to small daily tasks you can do every day to move the needle forward. Four: Outsource everything else!
If you can start to measure your day by productivity instead of busy-ness, you will be able to create more wealth for yourself, spend more time spending your days how you want, whether more vacation time, more time with your family, or more time on the beach, or whatever you want for your own life.
This is one important step to getting your mind right and going to war.
