Can you achieve ten times more by living for the weekend?
There’s an old saying that goes, “If you want to get something done, give it to a busy man.” That’s because a busy man is in motion, and it’s a hell of a lot easier to steer someone that’s moving then someone that has parked their asses with nothing to do.
We live in a society driven too much by leisure. Everybody’s lookin’ for vacation time, or the upcoming weekend. It’s rare you hear someone say, “I’m looking forward to the weekend because I’m gonna work on the business I want to start.” Nope. Most people are headed for the lake, or the bar.
I’m not saying you shouldn’t do any of those things, but every weekend? And what about quittin’ time? There is valuable time in the evenings, weekends, or early morning that you could be improving your skills, getting some more education, or starting a home business. God forbid you should ever say, “I’m bored.”
How can anyone be bored when they live in world filled with opportunity? Only those who settle for what they are can be content with periods of boredom. But I refuse to believe that’s you. In your case, you know you haven’t come close to maximizing your potential. In your case, the best is yet to come!
People often think of the great things they’ll do once they get some time off. Well, guess what? That time off isn’t coming, so you better figure out a way to fit your goals for something greater into your present schedule. You’d be shocked to find out how much time is already being wasted.
Learn to maximize your time, and you’ll transform boredom into building something for yourself. A bored person is a directionless person. A bored person is basically a slave. They have no greater expectation than living on the plantation of “just getting by” and have no intent to maximize their gifts, talents, and abilities.
Don’t let this be you. With as much resources as you have, and as much opportunity as exists in this world, you should exploiting every free moment you get to move your ass into where you truly want to be. Metal up!
