Everyone is given the same hours each day – make every day of yours worthwhile
My work as a coach and trainer is predominantly focused on helping people go to bed at the end of the day with a clear sense of a job well done, and a day well spent. I often describe it as helping people to unleash their potential – so they can do all they desire to do, and be all they desire to be.
The mistake many people make, is to spend their day being busy – and confusing that activity with worthwhile accomplishment. But activity is not the same as accomplishment as John Maxwell says in his law of priorities.
The ability to do things in the right order, to work out what is really the thing that is most important and what will contribute the most value (however you decide to measure value) is a skill that separates life’s high flyers from the rest of the pack.
As Steven Covey puts it: The key is not to prioritise what’s on your schedule, but to schedule your priorities.
It is very easy to be busy, but to be effective takes more thought and the willingness to make decisions about what is really important and what it not. In fact, it often requires a change in the way we think – and that is hardest of all. But as Christian Simpson says: your business will never outgrow the quality of thinking you bring to it.
We often behave as if money is our most valuable asset – but you know- if you lose all your money, you can still make some more. However, if you lose a day - you will never get it back.
Make every day of yours count by living it intentionally – do things on purpose and not by accident. Develop the critical thinking skills that will allow you to raise the lid on your own performance and lead your organisation to higher levels of success.
None of this will happen by itself – only if you decide to take action and then follow through on that decision will you see the change you desire. Having a trusted coach who is committed to your personal and professional success is a proven approach that many of today’s high flyers have adopted. If you are ready to take this step, my partners and I would be delighted to help you. In fact, I’m so sure this will be a transformative experience for you I’m prepared to put my money where my mouth is a provide an initial coaching session for free.

A parting thought from James Allen "Men are anxious to improve their circumstances, but are unwilling to improve themselves; they therefore remain bound".
Do you choose to improve or remain bound?
