Getting Time Back

“A man is too apt to forget that in this world he cannot
have everything. A choice is all that is left him.”

Are You In The Top 10%?

The resource that people will tell you they lack most is time. However, if you watch them at
work you’ll observe constant activity: people rushing to meetings, receiving and sending hundreds of e-mails, answering their cells and either creating or putting out fires.

A 10 year study conducted by the Harvard Business Review of the behavior of busy managers
revealed that 90% squandered most of their time in ineffective activities. Only 10% were truly effective and used their time in a committed, purposeful and reflective manner.

The two traits that the study found made for true effectiveness were:

1. Focus – the ability to establish and zero in on a goal and see it through to completion.

2. Energy – the vigor that comes from owning the goal, tackling a heavy workload and meeting deadlines.

If you are prone to treating every activity in the day as a vital goal you will undoubtedly end up very ‘busy’, but not necessarily very effective. My advice is to ‘focus’ on one key goal for your work and one for your personal life.

Commit to it and I will guarantee that the ‘energy’ will flow.
