    Have you ever thought about breaking down your day into what are the most valuable tasks that you do and the least valuable? If you're like most people, you've probably broken down your annual salary into an hourly rate. Or if you're a business owner or freelancer, perhaps you've divided annual revenue into the number of hours that you work to get to a similar calculation.


    Perry Marshall, one of the most expensive business strategists in the world, has spent a lot of time thinking about this. Because for him, there is a completely different way of looking at this equation.

    Two strategies to get rid of the "shoulds" in your life

    Two strategies to get rid of the "shoulds" in your life

    “Should” is one of the most problematic words when it comes to self-talk. I should go to the gym. I should accept this event invitation. I should call this friend and see how she's going, I should spend less time on social media.

    So today I want to share with you two alternative words or phrases to replace the shoulds in your life.
