Free up some time and ease your mind - have a pre-set process for dealing with problems.

The Thinking Behind the Tweet

Another piece of free up some time advice… 

Many people waste a huge amount of time worrying about and even agonizing over problems. 

Business life is laced with problems…some small, some not-so-small. 

So, it makes sense to have a ready-to-use system for addressing problems. 

This provides many benefits…but, here, I will only mention 3: 

  • It ensures time is not wasted thinking about how to go about addressing the problem
  • It forces a solution orientation…i.e., positivity trumps worry
  • It builds confidence 

That’s why we created P=2S+O©

I'm too busy! - I don't have time! | Solutions & Opportunities | Thought Tweets

Beware those vagrant thoughts. [Unless, of course, you want to waste a lot of time.]

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

Vagrant thoughts find their home in the endless mental chatter that flows through our minds. 

Vagrant thoughts make up much of our mental chatter.

Some of our thoughts meet the criteria for statutory vagrancy - they are intentionally unproductive and [call it] allergic to gainful employment.

I'm too busy! - I don't have time! | Thinking as in Think and Grow Rich | Thought Tweets

Isn't it ironic that successful people are busy while unsuccessful people are too busy?

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

I've never heard a successful person say, "I'm too busy."

I've heard many struggling people say, "I'm too busy."

There must be a cause-and-effect at play here...

Perhaps, successful people never place themselves into too-busy situations, so they never feel or think too-busy?

Perhaps, people who say "I'm too busy" doom themselves to never be successful?

Understanding the power of self-talk and not wanting to take chances on the latter...I choose to never say "I'm too busy."

If you want to win someone over then let him know that you know what he does when he is at work.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

Most people take at least some pride in their work...so they tell others about what they do when they are at work. 

Few people have the interest or take to time to truly listen to others, so they never really hear let alone remember what others tell them.

You can listen. You can remember. You can let others know you care about what they do at work.

You can inspire people!

 

 

If you can convince yourself you are too busy then you too can make worse decisions.

  1. It's all in the way you hold your mind.
  2. You do not have to take the time required to make good decisions. It is your prerogative to make lousy decisions and nobody can take that right away from you.
  3. There's probably no better way to make lousy decisions than holding in your mind the thoughts, "I am too busy" and "I don't have time".
  4. If you put your mind to it you will find your mind will warm to the habit of "I am too busy" and "I don't have time". And soon, very soon, you will be able to make really lousy decisions.

Surely, successful people should be the busier. Yet, that's not the  way they feel or talk.

Return on time invested - doesn't it follow a curious path?
