Many people do not know that it's very difficult to be a business person if you do not know how to value your own time. Successful people have different qualities, character, approach to certain issues and situations both in work and in life, but they share one thing - to use their own time correctly, freeing themselves from unnecessary affairs. Each of us has 24 hours a day, but only a few use this time to achieve success.
I recently read an article about studies of English scientists who concluded that doing several things simultaneously leads to a reduction in the amount of gray matter, in other words, the brain is decreasing. Developing this idea, I believe that you can do a successful business only when you are focused on one thing, because concentration is one of the most important factors. I believe that it is impossible to make several successful businesses simultaneously. Yes, you can put one business on your feet, make sure that everything works on the system and then study other markets and industries. Of course, you can try to do two things at the same time, but, in my opinion, not one of the best management teams can manage like a proprietor. After all, if you created and raised your business to your feet, none of your managers will know this kitchen from the inside like you. And by the way, according to statistics, if you do several projects in parallel, you dramatically reduce the probability of success of each of them.
You probably noticed that, lately, I rarely write posts. For me, a period has come when I have to set new goals and set the right priorities. After all, life goes on, the world and interests change. Sometimes, it seems to me that I could do much more than I did for today, it seems to me that somewhere I had to turn the sheet and start from scratch, and not go back and try to rewrite it ... The most difficult part is life - to understand which bridge should be crossed and which one to burn. And you did not have such an idea that you are not following your path, that it's time to change something?
Time. Ask any business person what is most important to him, and he will answer – the ability to appreciate your own time. Understanding the time maximally allows you to realize your potential, because our whole life depends on time. Agree, we do not often think about time. We delay the solution of simple everyday issues, referring to the fact that there is still plenty of time, we spend a lot of time with people who are of little interest to us, instead of spending time with a close person. Sometimes, we do not have enough sense of transience of life, we forget that there will come a day and we will regret many missed moments simply because we have not found the time. Therefore, my dear readers, I would like to address each of you and suggest writing on the sheet of paper plans for a year, 5 years and 10 years. What would you like to achieve, what kind of lifestyle to lead, someone can dream of a dizzying career, and someone about a strong and happy family. And every time you have a turning point, just look at this sheet of paper remind yourself that there is not much time, you need to live now, there is not time for a draft.
Procrastination is one of the manifestations of fear. A lot of people have a very interesting feature - they are going to perform some kind of actions, but they do not start anything. The reasons for this are thousands: laziness, doubt, uncertainty. In my eyes - this is a fear. Fear does not justify the expectations of others, the fear of losing self-confidence, the fear of suspense, the fear of losing the respect of loved ones and so on. I believe that the more action you do, the more likely you are to succeed. After all, successful people never give themselves peace, they always work, and success does not wait. What do you think can be the reason for the delay?
