Time is the most precious resource that we have and I am constantly thinking of how to better manage it and mostly how to create the time freedom I so desire. At the end of the day this is where everyone on earth is equal; we all have the same number of hours in a day. No body gets more hours no matter what their status is.
I wanted to share with you one of the tools that I have recently put into use that helps me be more productive and mindful, along with another video that is going to get you thinking differently about time and productivity and help you get motivated.
Productivity Funnel --> Procrastinate on Purpose - Juicy Tidbits:
Everybody has the same amount of time in a day this is a universal truth and is equal to all human beings
How you spend your time now determines how you will spend your time later….. Invest in multiplying your time.
The financially rich, invest their money to work for them via compound interest, their money works while they sleep and continues to grow without the need for their on-going attention.
The rich in time, will also invest, they invest now in strategies to multiply their time in order to free it up later.
Must check out the following video and the Productivity Funnel, this will change your life if you use it!!!!
There are a number of ways to make a bullet journal from the simple to the extraordinary.
The one outlined in video is what I have used as an outline when making my own journal. It takes does some upfront time as it is a customized productivity and time management tool but it is worth the investment.
This allows you to organize your time and to focus on what is really a priority for you. Making sure that your priorities are essential in your planning so that you are building your dreams and not just someone else's.
Remember it is up to you to design your life, make sure that your time is allocated to making your dreams become and reality and that you set up your bullet planner in a way that best suits you. Use this as a reference or a guide but make changes or upgrades based on your own preferences and needs, the sky is the limit.
Make sure that you are using your planner daily because if it is not in your calendar and your not taking action, then it's just an idea and it is not real.
