What are you wlling to give?!
A friend of mine asked me a question recently on how can he get to the next level. He complimented me and my work and was wondering how can he improve some of his skills.
I wanted to do a #Driven video of this but it would be hard with the number so ill do it this was.
I said let us look into your hours each week.
Here is what we found:
168 total hours per week
Sleep: 7 hours per day x 7 days = 49 hours. (119 hours left)
Work ( including drive time and lunch breaks): 10 hours per day x 5 days = 50 hours. (69 hours left)
Watch TV: 4 hours a day x 7 days a week = 28 hours. (41 hours left)
Personal hygiene / bathroom / shower: 1 hour a day x 7 days = 7 hours. (34 hours left)
Workout /exercise: 1.5 hours x 3 days = 4.5 hours. (29 hours left)
Family responsibilities / church / kids practice: 10–30 hours a week. (Time is gone)
Once we did that together I ask him, “Out of your 168 hours per week, how many hours do you spend reading, listening to personal development audiobooks or CDs, various tutorials, online classes…
He said, “About 1 hour a week.”
I told him “There is the answer my friend. How do you expect with just an hour a week to compete with the other 167 hours?”
If you want to get to the next level you must sacrifice some hours, you have to commit to a process and make some priorities in your life.
I Will check on that subject with him in a month just to see if there were any improvements.
Question for you:
How many hours a week do you spend working on your “upgrade”?
My time would be 21 hours a week. Working to get to 25 per week.
Get further, faster!
