You don’t need to be a race car driver to understand that to the swift goes the race.
Unless you are in a position where results don’t matter… winning doesn’t matter… getting ahead doesn’t matter or turning yourself into the best version of you doesn’t matter… then you need to think like a champion.
This means mastering your Clock Management skills.
Regardless of who you are… young or old… rich or broke… successful or struggling… we all have exactly the same number of minutes to work with:
1,440 minutes each day.
This week, we will be getting VERY personal… asking the truly IMPORTANT questions:
Are you actually LIVING what you say you value, or are you consumed by the moment…
with no forward movement in the direction of your dreams?
The importance of knowing what you value more than something else is critical to your day-to-day performance.
Ultimately, the Excellence Habit is all about the inculcation of great ideas…
POSITIVE IDEAS that shape your performance.
To succeed, you MUST have a constant flow of great ideas… a reservoir to depend on for true innovation.
To motivate you to take bold action.
When we run out of ideas, we run out of hope.
Regardless the controversy about who should and shouldn’t be nominated for high recognition, the fact remains…
EVERY contender is both a winner and a Time Management EXPERT!
The reality is, 95% of all success is simply showing up… on time and ready to perform.
Ready for the opportunities that naturally come your way.
I have built my entire life around seizing ever-growing opportunities.
I have yet to hear even ONE knock on my door — or whack me upside my head.
Opportunities behave quite differently from what we have been trained to expect.
You must have POWERFUL LENSES with which to see and sense them.
This morning we had a wonderful conversation about getting 2018 off to the best start possible.
My advice was simple.
Take out a sheet of paper and draw a line down the middle. Label the left half WHAT I DON’T WANT… and the right side WHAT I REALLY WANT…
Listen to the audio and follow along.
1 hour here and you will not only have better direction, but a real head start towards guaranteeing 2018 becomes YOUR year.
Today our incredible new Time Prism — The World’s Smartest App™ became REAL…
18 months of dreaming, planning, working, writing, editing, and a hundred other functions you would never guess.
Today it became real on Google Play.
On Tuesday, it will become real on the Apple Store.
Thousands of years of wisdom in the palm of your hand…
Driven by the world’s first Transparent Learning Engine.
There are many popular definitions of the word GOAL.
Most define it as a dream with a date… we define it as a dream with a deadline.
The deadline implies a commitment to both the dream and the time it will take to achieve it.
A better definition might be that goals represent the confluence between Desirability and Believability.
It is the recognition that it takes BOTH to create a goal that will ultimately be achieved.
I made it a habit years ago to ruthlessly limit my exposure to junk, fake and useless news to just 30 minutes a day.
That is more than enough time to get a global perspective on what’s going on, process what is being said, and form an opinion.
Think about this.
There are only 1,440 minutes in a day (24 hours x 60 minutes).
Subtract 440 for sleep, rest, and downtime — you have 1,000 prime minutes to make all your dreams real.
“Christmas is the perfect time to celebrate the love of God and family and to create memories that will last forever. Jesus is God’s perfect, indescribable gift. The amazing thing is that not only are we able to receive this gift, but we are able to share it with others on Christmas and every other day of the year.” ~ Joel Osteen
“My Christmas wish for you is for you to become all you are meant to be. It is also my challenge to you. FACT: Become the best version of yourself possible, and all your hopes and dreams will be realized… because you are never given a dream without also being given the power to realize it. But, you may have to work a lot smarter than ever before.” ~ E. R. Haas, CEO
“Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.”~ Steve Jobs
If you love great sci-fi, there is nothing more appealing than walking through a stargate to galaxies beyond our own.
One minute you are here on Earth, the next on the other side of the Pegasus galaxy… facing the exciting unknown — the good, the bad, and the different.
Our journey through time is like that.
One moment we are young and have an entire life ahead, and the next, we are facing the inevitability of our demise.
To achieve your dreams… to maintain balance in the heat of the battle… to know that you have done the best you could given the circumstances you faced… requires you to focus on the important, and not be consumed by the urgent.
This is a major driver of success, both personally and professionally. It is not hard to focus, if you know what’s important to you, and what’s not.
