One of the major differences between those who succeed and those who don’t is that the former know how. They have learnt to be productive. Life becomes a lot simpler when you know how. Without learning to be productive, you are likely to have a bunch of things you want but never quite get. Being productive increases your motivation as you begin to see the results. Learning how to commit with productivity gets us across the finish line.
The most common reason we give for not being productive and not getting things done is, “I don’t have time”. The moment we give a reason and justify why we think, say or do what we do, we hinder the opportunity for change. When we stop giving reasons and start taking responsibility in every minute and every moment then life gets a whole lot better!
So what’s your reason for not having time?
The statement “I don’t have time” is everywhere — everybody says it at some point. It’s the reason for not getting the things done that matter — like exercise, healthy eating, quality time with loved ones, relaxation, self development and great results at work. What we could say is “I don’t have time for the less important tasks that add no value to my life” or “I have no time to waste on the things that don’t matter”.
Ask high achievers and they will admit that life is full but that there is time if you only do the things that matter — the things that truly add value. The one thing high achievers don’t have time for is wasting time. They all say that the key to managing time is not wasting time on the things that don’t matter.
The ultimate responsibility in life is being responsible for how you choose to spend your time, without reason and without regret. When we stop giving reasons and take action in every minute and every moment — life rocks. Every minute counts. It’s time to get the things done that matter.
Every Minute Counts and You Can Have It All!
