How did it get so late so soon?

The same laws of time and nature restrict us all; we all get the same 1,440 minutes every single day. The difference between your life and successful people is defined by what we choose to do with those minutes we're allotted.  One of the richest men in the world said:

How did it get so late so soon?

 “The difference between successful people and very successful people is that very successful people say “no” to almost everything. And that’s what gives them the time to accomplish so much.” - Warren Buffet 

You have to look at your life and ask yourself, “Am I accomplishing my goals, do I have a plan to achieve my goals this year”…  Seriously, are you actively taking steps to achieve your goals?

Be Bold, Stop Waiting & Take Action!!

Not just talking about it, but actually doing it… The truth is when you are watching someone you admire that successful, wither it be your neighbor, your co-worker, your best friend raising kids while holding down a full-time job but still has the time to start a business or that friend that is fighting their way through a Master program online. That person has same 24hrs that you do, but they choosing to spend those hours on their dreams… not on the excuses for why they can’t achieve it.

“I don’t care if you broke, you grew up broke… you grew up rich. You only get 24hrs in a day! We all only get 24 hours in a day. It’s what we do with it that makes the difference!” – Eric Thomas

This is how successful people look at TIME for productivity.

- 24 hours a day x 365 days - 8760 hours a yearProductivity

- 168 hours in a week

- 24 hours in a day

- 24 x 60 = 1440 minutes in a day

Achievement requires focus. And focus means saying “no” to a lot of distractions.

You want the truth…here’s the truth… You have to choose. You have to know your WHY, As Eric Thomas said; “When you want to succeed as bad as you want to breathe, then you’ll be successful.” Get up earlier, shut the TV off, and schedule time with your kids. You have to assign and make choices for all of your 1,440 minutes. That’s how you accomplish your goals… That’s how you become successful.

Successful people put what’s in their head on paper long before 

It’s fully formed, and they watch and listen to what they’ve recorded. 

Schedule your day to defeat distractions and stick to your daily routines. We live in an age where there are thousand of things grabbing our attention, TV, phone, apps, social media, and etc… but by using calendars to manage our daily routine will help shut out the distractions and stay on track.

You have the same amount of hours in a day as BEYONCE Click To Tweet

So as you see, we all have the same amount of hours as Beyonce, as Oprah, as Gates, as Zuckerberg, as Thomas and the list goes on… But ONLY YOU get to choose what you do with those HOURS!

Work smarter, not harder and choose wisely.
