You have the same number of hours each day as Richard Branson, Elon Musk, Mark Zuckerberg and any other uber successful leader you might care to think of. So how come they achieve so much more? Perhaps one of the reasons is their high level of self-worth and ethos towards making great choices on where to invest their time each day.
If you’re anything like me, when you are considering a financial investment one of your primary considerations would be understanding what return your investment would give you. Can you expect a short, medium or more long term rewards and how does the investment fit your comfort for risk?.
What is very interesting though is (providing you understand how) your ability to make money is infinite, yet the amount of time you have each day is finite (unless of course you have yet come up with a solution to make more time, in which case you will never be short of money either J
With this in mind it amazes me that people pay more attention to getting value and return from their money than they do from their time. Furthermore, most people I meet are spending way too much time firefighting and doing low value tasks, then complain they don’t have the time or headspace to do the higher value thinking and deep work.
So I created a tool that allows you to identify the return you get on the time you invest. Using it fully will enable you to achieve your goals faster, however it’s important that you start this exercise with the right mindset. The initial time investment is between 1 and 5 hours to complete, but the majority of my clients get 50 to 100 hrs back within the first 90 days and after a period of 3-6 months many get between 500 and 1000 hours a year back.
