Focus…Making time for your goals

Of course when we talk about eliminating extras when it comes to finances, we talk about budgeting and couponing.  When we talk about eliminating the things that aren’t helping us towards our goals when we talk about fitness, we’re talking about cutting out all those treats. These are common sense solutions that we’re all familiar with.

But I want you to look beyond the obvious here.  When you have a lot on your plate, every single second is precious.  I want you to think for a moment about the things that are taking up your TIME that could be keeping you from your goals.

Let’s take finances for example–what activities are keeping you from making the time to work on your business?  Did you know that the average American with a full-time job has between 4-5 hours of leisure time every day?  Do you feel like you have 4-5 hours a day?  Most people don’t.  And yet, if they look, they’ll find that they are wasting time or using it inefficiently.

Guess how the average person spends those 4-5 hours?  1) 3 hours on TV  2) 1 hour on social media 3) 6 MINUTES on reading and 4) 45 minutes with actual people.  We should be doing the opposite–spending time reading (personal development) and building relationships with the people in our lives.

Maybe you’re not watching TV or wasting time on the internet.  But, chances are that you do have things in your life that could go.  Take an inventory of where you are spending your time.  If those activities don’t lead you toward your dreams, phase them out.  Or try to figure out how you can replace certain activities with others that make better use of your time.

For instance, instead of going to the gym, maybe you can take a walk or go for a jog every morning-saving time but still achieving your goals.  If you like reading, read personal development books instead of fiction.

The bottom line is to make time for the activities that will move you towards your goals.
