The one thing everyone wishes they had more of besides money is time. No matter how hard you pray, hope and wish for more of it, you just can’t add more hours or minutes to your day. One of the excuses I hear over and over from entrepreneurs that want to grow their business is – I don’t have enough time. Let me be honest with you. You get 24 hours each day and you get to decide how you will spend those hours. When you think about not having enough time, how much time would be enough?
The truth of the matter is, “I don’t have enough time” isn’t the problem. It’s a symptom. The real problem if you look at it closely is fear. It may be the fear of success or the fear of failure. You may want to achieve a certain level of financial success in your business but unconsciously you’ll find ways to procrastinate and sabotage opportunities that come your way. All in all, fear is driving how you spend your time, daily.
Below are a few ways you can get more out of your 24 hour day and grow the bottom line.
- Set goals
- Create a daily action plan
- Work the plan!
- Set a daily intention
- Laser focus on revenue generators
- Build a support team
- Get an accountability partner or coach
If you don’t have a plan for how you’ll utilize your time, someone else will certainly find ways to fill your day. You can’t get more time but how you use it can make a big difference in your life and business.
“Time is a created thing. To say ‘I don’t have time,’ is like saying, ‘I don’t want to.” ~ Laozi
