June 2022 “Time Travel”

June 13, 2022

We are all time travels whether we realize it or not. Time happens with or without us no matter how important some folks feel about themselves.

When we were kids growing up, time just sat there and moved so very slow, and it seemed that the next event or the end of school would never get here. We would try and hurry up things like our birthdays saying, “well I am six and a half years old and will be seven soon”. This doesn’t repeat itself until we start to reach our seventies, eighties, or even our nineties when age is worn with a badge of honor and showing your longevity (besides getting a little extra attention is a good thing) and again saying “well I almost eighty” and we have more time on our hands with less demands placed on us.

The point I am trying to make is whether in business or in your personal life its important to drive yourself to accomplish both the little and big tasks and or projects because time will pass regardless, you may as well improve yourself and those around you.

For example:

  • Wash the car in twenty minutes
  • Fix the leaking faucet in a couple of hours
  • Have lunch with an employee that has been having work related issues, an hour
  • The average reader could read a 600-page novel in just over sixteen hours
  • Take that online course and be done in 15 weeks
  • Write a new BLOG post promoting your company, 1 to 2 hours
  • Employee performance review 15 minutes (each)
  • Write that business plan that you’ve been putting off, 4 to 6 weeks
  • As I mentioned above, time passes, we may as well show something for the passage of time because we can never get it back.

    In most cases, the difference between a successful business and people in general is time management and personal drive. Make your lists and post it in an obvious place that you can’t ignore and get it done.

    Its okay to be a couch potato to unwind and get distracted to reset your busy day from time to time but don’t make it a habit its not in your best interests.
