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

Have you ever been in a time in your life where you were just overwhelmed? There was just so much on your plate that you genuinely couldn’t see how you could get it all done?

These are times in our lives where 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.

We’re going to talk about the model and the system side — we’re going to talk about time. Most people, without realizing it, spend their time instead of investing it. They don’t have an expectation for a return on investment of what’s on their calendar or planner. There is a better way. There is a way to create a relationship with your goals that invests your time so you can achieve extraordinary results.
