276. Gary Keller | Stop Trading Extraordinary for Convenience

Dec 21, 2020 | 0 comments

This is part two of our interview series with Gary Keller, co-author of “The ONE Thing” and chairman of Keller-Williams Realty.

In the last episode, we explored why deciding your habits decides your future and Gary talked about his fool-proof process for achieving any goal.

In this episode, we dive into how Gary invests his time. Time is our most valuable resource: the one we can’t get more of. But most people go through life spending their time instead of investing it. When you invest your time, you expect a return, just like with money. Gary walks you through how he views time, how he plans it out as an investment, and why we behave the way we behave.

Your privacy online is more important than ever before — and harder to get.

You might think you can just log into an incognito window, but that does not hide your internet activity: your internet service provider (ISP) can see every single website you’ve ever visited. It doesn’t matter if you have Verizon, Comcast, or any local internet service provider: in the USA, they can legally sell your information. But Express VPN will reroute your connection through their secure servers so that your ISP can’t see what you’re doing, and it keeps all of your information secure using the most powerful encryption available. It runs seamlessly in the background and it’s so easy to use.

Protect your online activity and get an extra three months added to your one-year package when you go to expressvpn.com/one.

So ask yourself, it time to take off some of your hats?
