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.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

  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.

We can choose to multi-task and struggle or we can choose to task-multi and win.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

If we try to cram multiple pieces of work into a time frame we lose focus and dilute concentration. The result is, at best, a mediocre pile of lower-calibre work.

If we focus our efforts to generate a single excellent result from a single piece of work during that time frame, we have the potential for work mastery.

If plan how to generate multiple future results from a single piece of work then focus our efforts to generate a single piece of work during that time frame, we have the potential to create excellent work and accomplish much more. We can, for example, build excellent things once and sell them many times. And, we can deliver huge value.

If you want to be a leader in your industry sector, return phone calls and respond to e-mail.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

Successful people seem to have more time. Also, with the current trend of slackening business etiquette, returning phone calls and responding to e-mail will be a differential advantage.

Why not take the lead...in a return to common courtesy, improved communication, and real relationships.

Only a silly person would waste time talking about not having enough time.

I mean - you wouldn't throw away perfectly good food while complaining about being hungry...would you?

The time right in front of you is perfectly good time.
