The richest man in the world has 1,440 minutes in a day to earn his money. The most educated man in the world has 168 hours a week to learn. The greatest athlete in the world has 365 days in a year to train. How much time do you have?
When people say they “don’t have enough time to get things done,” that’s simply not true. Everybody in the world, from the richest man to the most educated to the best athletes, has the same 24 hours.
Survey’s suggest that the average person in the US watches over 3 hours of television a day. That’s 65,700 minutes over the course of one year! Do you realize how much you could do with that amount of time? Take for example making phone calls to grow your business; let’s assume your average phone call is 3 minutes. Stop watching TV and you just produced an extra 65,700 minutes—60 phone calls a day or 21,900 phone calls a year! Imagine how many customers and how much money you’re missing out on!
It doesn’t have to just be phone calls. You could be educating yourself and sharpening your skills by reading a book. You could be sending more emails or making more personal visits to potential customers or you could be spending QUALITY time with your family. The amount of time is not the problem your choices with it are.
We all have the same 24 hours in a day—the same 1,440 minutes. What are you doing with yours? As the old saying goes, “time is money’, well most people don’t have money cause they don’t value time!
