Bigg Success is life on your own terms. The five elements of bigg success are money, time, growth, work and play. Today we’ll focus on time.
There are a lot of ways to waste time. We want to focus on the single biggest one of all time. It might surprise you when you hear what it is.
It’s not reading this post! At least we hope you don’t think that.
It’s not watching TV.
It’s not surfing the internet.
It’s not forwarding silly e-mails to your friends.
It’s not texting.
It’s not social networking.
It’s not useless conversations.
It’s not even inane meetings.
So what is the single biggest time waster of all time?
It’s doing the wrong thing.
The wrong thing is anything that doesn't move you closer to your dream life.
A lot of the productivity literature focuses on efficiency. That’s great if you’re doing the right thing. So here are 5-steps to moving in the right direction:
Decide on your destination. Where are you going? What’s your bigg dream?
Plot your course. How do you plan to get there? Determine how your journey is expected to progress.
Gather the necessary resources and provisions. Fuel up by getting the knowledge you need. Pick the vehicle that will take you to your destination. Get the help you need – be it a coach, a mentor, a partner, or a virtual assistant.
Go! At some point, you have to take off. You can expect to run into some detours along the way. That’s alright. Keep going. Focus on the road right in front of you.
Don’t forget to rest & replenish. Take care of your physical self by getting needed sleep, food and exercise. Also feed your mind & soul. We hope Bigg Success is one way you do that every day.
Performing the wrong task, no matter how well you do it, is a complete waste of time. The right tasks move you closer to life on your own terms. That’s bigg success!
