230. How to Stop Spending Your Time and Start Investing It!

Feb 24, 2020 | 0 comments

Have you ever felt just… overwhelmed? Like there was just so much on your plate that you genuinely couldn’t see how you could get it all done?

It’s in these moments when our systems — our models — have failed. At any time we are hitting the ceiling of our achievement, we are missing something. We’re either missing a person in the form of a mentor, coach, or new hire, or we’re missing a model or system.

Most people, without realizing it, spend their time instead of investing it. They don’t have an expectation for a return on investment from what’s on their calendar or planner. But there is a better way, a better model you can use to get more done and avoid overwhelm. So, in this episode, we’re going to teach you how to create a relationship with your goals that invests your time, allowing you to more easily achieve extraordinary results.
