Did you know that if you waste six minutes every hour over an eight hour day, after a week, a month, a year, that equals five weeks of wasted time each year? Yes, it's true. Guess what? That equals five weeks of paid vacation.
We all waste six minutes every hour. Myself included. I'm not saying that we have to be productive every minute of every day. The purpose of sharing this with you is to show you what happens when you waste six minutes per day. What about over a lifetime? It's amazing how much time we waste.
Each day we are being pulled in many different directions with email, voicemail, proposals, drive time, meetings, presentations, training, kids, and social activities. You name it. Our lives are extremely busy and full of many activities. It's easy to get distracted from what is really important.
There are 86,400 seconds in every day. I don't have an advantage over you and you don't have an advantage over me. What if I gave you a cashiers check right now for $86,400 with a note attached that said,”Whatever you don't invest wisely today, I will confiscate what is left over at the end of the day.” How would you look at your day differently?
Is your activity well educated? What do I mean by that? Are you working on the right activities that will have the greatest impact, activities that not only contribute to your success but to the success of others?
Here is your “Sales Nugget”. Make a list each each night before you go to bed of the three most important money making activities that you need to focus on the next day and watch what happens to your productivity.
How do you stay focused? Would love to hear your thoughts below.
