    SIY #90 Take Back Your Time

    SIY #90 Take Back Your Time

    We all have a lot on our plates when it comes to tasks, business calls, family matters. We wake up striving to check everything off your list. But entitled people can get in the way and steal time. Those people, hijackers, contact us because they know CEOs are problem-solvers. Losing that time makes us lose our focus.

    We all have an inner and outer ring we’re going after. The inner ring is the bullseye of what we’re trying to accomplish. The outer ring is the steps we’re taking to get there. If you take that 5-minute call from someone interrupting your day, it will take hours to get back on track. Why? Because then you have to get refocused. Start looking at your time monetarily. Everything you do needs to lead to the inner circle. Don’t get caught up in loving to serve people. As a business owner, we have to focus on the mission at hand. 

    Throughout your day, take some time to meditate. This allows stress levels to melt away and it sharpens memory. Also, accomplish To Do List tasks every day. Chris’ preferred method of getting things done is the avalanche method. Do the most important task early on and then go down to the least important. Also, try the snowball method. This starts with the easiest tasks of the day. Third, learn to delegate. Business owners decide how best to spend our time.  Give attention and time and put more detail in your work. If you’re feeling overwhelmed, change your state.

    SIY #89 Making Your Own Luck

    SIY #89 Making Your Own Luck

    To get to the comfortable lifestyle you want, you have to be uncomfortable. If you see Chris in real life, the last thing he wants to hear is how lucky he is. Chris spent 3 years traveling in a U-Haul with his mom to promote the business. Up-and-coming business owners always ask how to get to his level. Here’s how: commit to the process, detach from the outcome. When you do the uncomfortable over and over again, that’s where you see progress. Let’s break down LUCK. L is for love. If you do not love what you do, you need to find it ASAP. U is for unstoppable. We are our own creators of destiny. Use fear as fuel. C is for consistency. Most people are consistently inconsistent. People who think consistency is boring probably already have a boring life. K is for kindness and karma. Live life by helping others around you and you’ll shift and grow to serve others. Luck is preparation meeting opportunity. That’s how you make your own luck.
