I use the phrase “protect your time” a lot when I’m talking to prospects and clients. It’s a pretty clear phrase, and useful for helping people understand what we do, but something happened when I used it today.
This week’s post is a short audio reflection on what I’ve learned over the past three years, what I’m excited about as we look to the future, and why I’m grateful for you
Your time management skills (or lack thereof) can no more impact your value as a human being than a pebble has on a mountain. Your worth is independent of what you can produce. You can set aside the old decisions you’ve made about whether you’re “productive” or not and approach your time leadership systems as a journey and an ongoing experiment.
If we can take ownership over how we spend our time, think deeply about it, and live a life we can look back on with gratitude rather than regret, what might change?
Let’s start taking time seriously. Let’s go deeper than “the morning routines of the most successful people.” Let’s think about what we want our time to mean across the entirety of our lives…and then let’s design and build businesses that give us that kind of experience of time.
Your biggest competitor isn’t some systems strategist or a software tool that promises to solve it all. It’s much closer than you think.
What you’ll find in it and why I’m writing it. I am so close to being finished! I cannot wait to share it with you.
A list of software tools that every business owner should have (and how you can use them for free) and more of them for when your business has grown.
For many of the problems in our businesses, if we follow the thread back, we’ll be able to find a system that’s leading to that problem or allowing it to exist.
