"Time is a bit like money, you have to spend it wisely".
Guess what you had today? It's the same as what you had the day before, and I guarantee you will get the same tomorrow. As you may have already guessed from the title alone...
You got 86400 seconds.
Whether it's work or in front of the telly, you WILL spend that time.
It does not matter whether you chat to your friends, or eat your food, or stare in to space. Those 86400 seconds will count down regardless.
You can't save 'time' up and spend it another day - you can't have more than 86400 seconds in one day. You can't pause it, and you can't avoid it!
The time you had yesterday is now gone - you will never be able to spend that time again, ever.
If it's in the past, then it has vanished. Only the present time can you use, the rest you either plan for or you reflect on.
Wouldn't it be nice to reflect on time well spent?
"You can't control time, but you can control what you do within time..."
Succeeding in any thing in life including business online relies heavily on 'time', and how efficiently you use it.
I used to spend every available minute online learning what I could, setting up sites, writing sales copy and editing autoresponder's.
I spent an unhealthy amount of time working and I will tell you now - It was not worth it! My health suffered, and although I did learn a lot, I could have learned even more if I had spent my time more efficiently.
Setting yourself a specific amount of time to do something can be very rewarding, like giving yourself one hour tonight to work on your business, instead of just working and finding yourself half awake at 3 in the morning, wondering why you are so tired.
But that's not all you should do. You should also set yourself specific goals to achieve within your time slot(s).
You need to 'cut' yourself time AND set goals to achieve within that time, to make efficient use of those valuable seconds.
One without the other is pointless.
Time + no set goals = Failure. Set goals + no time = Failure. Time plus set goals = Success!
If we don't have set goals and set time periods in which to do them, we would be lucky at best to get results.
Spend those 86400 seconds wisely!
Think of it as 'flex' time. Rough estimates are good, like the odd half an hour here and a couple of hours there sort of thing.
In future, set yourself specific goals which you want to attain, and give yourself a time period to do it in.
This will speed you to success!
