Stop Wasting Time!

December 19, 2013 by Alan Dodson

MOST PEOPLE, waste most of their time, MOST of the time!

Time is a constant, we are allotted a certain amount of time everyday for the things that we must accomplish. If we waste our time, we can never get it back. Managing your time and accomplishing your goals, is what time management is all about. Make the most of what you have. One of the easiest ways to have more time is to get out of bed earlier!  Limit your online time on Facebook and other social media, have set business hours.   It is easy to put off things and waste time when we are self employed.

“Man, alone, has the power to transform his thoughts into physical reality; man, alone, can dream and make his dreams come true. Patience, persistence and perspiration make an unbeatable combination for success.”   Napoleon Hill

Before you can sell yourself successfully to others-and thus sell your ideas, your wishes, your needs, your ambitions, your skills, your experience, your products and services-you must be absolutely sold on yourself: 100 percent.  You must believe in yourself, have faith in yourself and have confidence in yourself. In short, you must be totally aware of your own self-worth.  You cannot sell yourself at a premium price unless YOU unequivocally believe you are worth that price and more!



Until next time, Alan
