TIME my friends is the most valuable resource on the planet. Without it we can't grow, love, experience... live! For this blog post I'd like to shed some light on the importance of time and its strong correlation to your success in life.
Let's begin this conversation by taking 60 seconds and write down something you have a burning passion to be great at. This won't be hard to answer because odds are it's always on your mind. Next, how many hours a day and week are you spending with this passion of yours? Now keep this in the forefront of your mind because we will circle back to this at the end.
Like I said TIME is our greatest resource without it we have nothing else. How you use that time is ultimately up to each one of us. To become great or even better at anything all you need is time. More time practicing, more time learning, more time experiencing everything you can about that craft. Creating a life that allows you to spend as much time as you possibly can in that craft will be a huge factor in your success. Share with the people around you what you are looking to achieve and become so they know how to help you. This doesn't always mean direct help but support in the time you need to achieve the journey you are on will make a massive impact in your long term success!
Now... the more time in your craft can be very powerful BUT creating quality time will lead to you working smart! It is easy to spin your wheels and work, work, work but have no focus or direction. Create goals and objectives with your time. This doesn't lead to success all the time but it will give you focus to your time! Knowing what doesn't work is just as valuable as knowing what does work!
Creating a "balance" of spending a massive amount of FOCUSED TIME in your craft will lead to success. Maybe not tomorrow but at some point it will. As in strength training the more time you can put your muscles under tension the greater success you will have in building muscle. Tension is the QUALITY of your TIME. And TIME is time... without it we have nothing. Those that understand how to capitalize on the time they have the greater chance of success no matter the endeavor!
Circle back to my original question about your deep passion. How much time are you spending in it? Can you do more? Can you improve your quality of the time?
Live out your dreams one moment at a time!!
