People tend to underestimate how much they can accomplish in a year, but overestimate what they can accomplish in a day. Everyone has 24 hours in a day, 168 hours in a week, 720 hours in month, and 8,760 hours in a year.
What do you want to achieve? How many hours do you think it will take for you to accomplish your goal in a year? Three years, five years? Think about this – in five years you’ll be on this Earth for 43,800 hours.
If you need to invest 100 hours in your idea, spending five hours today and then not picking it up for two months isn’t going to get you towards your goal. Instead, invest a hour a day over the next 100 days and you’ll reach your goal. Or spend half an hour over 200 days. Investing consistent time on your personal development will get you to where you want to go.
I encourage you to take action today. Sit down for 30 minutes, put away your phone, and focus on taking a step on your idea.
If you feel like you don’t have enough time, I’m sure there are ways to adjust your lifestyle to make room for your goals. I cut cable and made time for reading. I stopped going to the bar each weekend, coming home at 2 AM, and waking up hungover. Instead, I started going to bed at a reasonable hour, walking up at 8 AM or earlier on Saturdays to hustle.
Things don’t always come as fast as you’d like, but over time, success will come. As you grow, turn that knowledge into action and you can find the success you’re looking for.
In this episode, I’ll be sharing with my thoughts on personal development, growth and sharing the story of someone applying this in their life today.
