If there’s one thing I’ve noticed, it’s that the most successful people I know all “make” time for the important things in life. While this is definitely simple, it’s not easy without the right frameworks.
I’ve found there are usually 3 or 4 things that rob people of their time and ultimately, their lives.
Not having clarity around what they want and where they want to go in life.
Not planning long term or doing a daily planning session before beginning their day.
Not “blooming where they’re planted” in the words of Joel Salatin.
They think they’re good enough to do everything
Before you can arrive anywhere, you have to know where you want to arrive. As basic as this is, most people put very little time into thinking through this deeply and then secondly, planning it out.
If at the start of the day you take some time to plan and prioritize your goals and activities for the day, it would be very beneficial . Doing this daily planning session is like building a compass to work off of for the day.
Once you know where you’re going, have a map, have planned the trip, and get on your way it’s important to bloom where you’re planted. What I mean by that is, take the opportunity you have and make something of it.
Don’t fall prey to the “grass is always greener” syndrome. The grass is greener where you water it.
Lastly, you and everyone else in the world, CAN NOT be good enough at everything to make a great life out of anything. You must plan to be a specialist at something so as to be able to maximize your potential and receive the greatest success.
