I’m sure you’ve heard the term, “time is money.” There is a common belief that in order to be successful, you have to sacrifice your lifestyle for hours and hours of grueling work. So many put in the time and effort to be successful in their work or home business, just to wind up stressed, frustrated and feeling powerless.

First of all, this is a new year and a new season. It is a time for planning new financial and lifestyle goals, and above all, adopting a new mindset for your life. So please, leave your old mindset behind. Success is measured by results, not by the hours you work!

Did you catch that? All the hours you work in a week mean nothing, if you don’t have the results! The only hours worth your time, are the ones that actually give you results. More hours don’t necessarily mean more money!

The most important thing to realize is, every single person on this earth, from the highest-paid man on earth to the bum on the street, all have the same 24 hours in a day. How you USE those 24 hours is vitally important. You’ve only got one life and you can choose to do with it what you will.

That being said, take a look at your typical day and write down how you usually spend it. Where does each hour go? How many hours a day are you doing something that helps you achieve the life of your dreams? How many hours do you spend watching TV? How many hours do you spend looking at emails? What you focus on, you will get good at.

If you are focusing on tasks that get you results, and trimming out the ones that aren’t helping you, you’ll get MORE results. And I don’t just mean in your career. Not all results are equated with money. The result could be quality relationships.

My advice to you would be to start keeping track of your time. For the next week track everything you do and write it down, as well as how much time you spent on it. Were you fully focused on that one task or were there interruptions? Write that down! When I first did this, I realized I was wasting 80 hours a week.

So where is your focus every day? On your goals, on your results? Leave me your comments and goals below and don’t forget to spread this word of encouragement.

The week is almost over, but it’s not too late reset your focus and accomplish big things over the next few days.
