Today, I’d like to speak about something that has been bothering me lately. I just came home from a really productive day and I was wondering about how we all have only a limited amount of time. I also want to share some tips and show you how to overcome your laziness.
I became pretty distressed as I pondered on this topic, so I thought that I should help people realize this rather unfortunate fact. Everybody has just a span of 24 hours to put to use. Once these 24 hours are gone, you have nothing that you can do about them. Therefore, what you need to do is make sure that you do not waste any amount of time.
What successful people do
The most successful people, including entrepreneurs and CEOs, they all get as much high-leverage work done as possible during one day. Similarly, I want to make sure that I can do as much as I can in one single day. I want to perform as many high leverage tasks as I can in one day.
I personally feel, that people who are wanting to be successful, but are not being able to achieve this, are failing because they are moving too slowly. Don’t let yourself be one of these people. I, Till Boadella, want to challenge you to raise your game. I want you to put the pedal-to-the-metal. I want you to up the ante in your search for success.
Step up and take massive action.
And if you think that you are already taking massive action, then think again. What you need to become is a productivity beast. You need to do more than work on one of your projects for a short span of time.
You need to transform your life, and that does not happen if you perform small tasks here and there. Hard work and persistence are the only two things that can outperform luck. To be successful, you need to convince the entire universe that you are indeed worthy of success.
All of today’s CEOs have one thing in common. They all work a lot. Similarly, you need to do the same. You need to work more than your employees. To be a leader, you must lead by example and you need to show your employees how hard they need to work.
I personally believe in this one quote that I’m a huge fan of.
“Leaders eat last”
“Leaders eat least” said Simon Sinek, one of the best know motivational speakers around. These three words tell you everything that you need to know and everything that you need to follow in your hunt for success.
Going about your day in a productive manner can be done by using some simple, yet effective strategies. The first thing that you should do is create a list of things that need to be done on that day. You should then break up your workday into 50 minute or 90 minute blocks. At the end of every block, you should take a 10 minute break to rejuvenate your mind. You can also use a timer to help you go about this.
Another important thing that you must keep in mind is that you should not get distracted. It’s really easy to get distracted so you need to try hard to stay focussed. To be successful, you need to persist. And to persist, you need to maintain focus.
Your day is a miniature of your life: Overcome your laziness
I would urge all my readers to take daily, consistent action. Your day, is a miniature of your life. How you spend your day is how you spend your life. If you’re not spending your day successfully, then you will not be spending your life successfully.
So, as we come to this post, I’d simply like to urge all of my readers to get out there and make the most out of their day. If you have a successful day, then chances are that you will also have a successful life. And if you do not have a successful day, then you will not have a successful life.
