Last night, I was SHOCKED!

It was late. Everyone else was asleep.

I was working on a long overdue review of my business earnings.

With increasing horror, I punched data into an Excel spreadsheet. Finally, when I clicked a button to add up totals…

I was STUNNED!

Income had dropped by a heart-wrenching 30% for the 1st half of 2019.

It felt like being punched in the gut.

But that wasn’t all.

The worse news is what’s happening in the 2nd half of 2019.

My net earnings for the last quarter were down…

By A Crushing NINETY-THREE Percent!

That’s right.

Revenue has dropped by nine-tenths over this period.

For a long time, I sat in silence in the dark room.

Thinking.

WORRYING!

And then, I made a plan.

Actually, it was just one decision.

I would start acting on it first thing in the morning.

4 Reasons Why Everyone Needs Time Management Skills

At a recent college reunion, twenty-five years after we first entered college, I met many old classmates and re-learned one important lesson.

Being Time Efficient Is HIGHLY Profitable!

One theme kept popping up over and over again in our conversations.

“Our kids rarely get to see their dad, he’s so busy!”

“I go to work at 6 a.m. and get back around 7 in the evening!”

“My son WON’T be a doctor – because he sees how crazy our schedule is!”

And invariably, the next question is: “As a surgeon, you must be working very long hours, right?”

They were all surprised when I said my average ‘work day’ at the hospital is 2 hours – except when I’m operating, when it is 7 hours (or longer, depending upon how complex the surgery is).

How do I manage this?

How do I have so much “free time” when everyone else has “No Time”?

How am I juggling so many exciting projects in ADDITION to my regular work?

It’s really quite simple. Let me explain.

Lenses For Life

We view the world around us – and the people in it – through lenses.

Our focus is often limited to a tiny part of the whole. We see snippets and tidbits of other people’s lives.

We don’t know – let alone understand – the rest.

Decide to Commit

Commit

For those who buy a course or program about ANYTHING – how long do you typically work on the system you learn in it?

Reminds me of an analogy I read in a book about success engineering.

How to eat an elephant

As the answer to this childish riddle goes,

“You eat an elephant – one bite at a time”!
