Stop Wasting My Time… Please!

time wastingI know you think that I am referring to YOU wasting my time but what I really mean is this.

We all do things everyday that are totally a waste of our time and even though we know it… we still do it.

We say things to ourselves like “it’s only going to take a short while”, “I’ll get right back to what I was doing” or “this is more fun for now, I’ll get to it later”.

Have you ever caught yourself in this inner dialogue and behavior? What I want you to do is ask yourself this question right now…

What 1-2 things do I do daily that are really time wasters?

Next…

What I have found is that when you make a decision to just stop one of those time wasters and use that time for something that is highly impactful, you get a double reward.

The first reward is having the discipline to choose what to stop- the second reward is using that time towards something more meaningful and productive.

Make a decision today to stop just one. Do this for several days and you’ll see a real improvement in your productivity.

Video: Stop Letting Distractions Slow You Down

Hi Friends,

Today there is so much technology that has been created to make our lives easier. But sometimes this improved communication creates distractions that make it harder to get things done and to focus. I find myself falling into this trap like everybody else! Click below to watch my video blog on how to Stop Letting Distractions Slow You Down.

 

P.S. If you want help from me on how to focus on your goals and to live the life you’ve always wanted, check out my FREE guide below.

Why are you stuck?

Look at this incredible statistic:

According to Dr. Edward Miller, Dean of John’s Hopkins’s University,

Nine out of ten people who have gone thru heart bypass surgery do not change their behaviors or lifestyles after surgery knowing they face death as a result of not changing!

It’s sad but true. There is also a way to stop this.

  • Is there something in your life you are trying to change or stop?
  • Do you want to make more money but don’t?
  • Do you want to have better health but can’t change your eating and excerise habits?
  • Do you want to eliminate low self-image?
  • Get your employees or yourself to adopt new behaviors, but you can’t?

Read on to find out why this happens.

For over 20 years I have been studying why some people are able to achieve the success they want in life while others struggle daily as if fighting for the air they breathe.

The research that keeps coming back over and over again points to the human brain.

You are currently wired to experience and achieve exactly what your current results are showing you. Please don’t get me wrong, you are capable of much more, and that is why you are frustrated.

The way we are raised and taught when we are young will determine our results as an adult. If you are not happy with certain results in your life right now, you must change from the inside out.

Using will power and persistence is a temporary act that fizzles out very quickly, as you already know.

Your brain controls all your perceptions and behaviors. Unfortunately, its responsibility is to keep you at whatever current result you are getting. Nothing less and nothing more.

Sure, you can trick it to losing weight or making more money, but it will almost always bring you back to your current level of non-conscious expectations and true beliefs. That is its job.

The “Hard-Wiring” in your brain is your current level of programming or conditioning. You may not like it, but it’s the truth.

You can never achieve more in your life without adding new and “better programming”.

It’s like upgrading software on your computer. If you want better performance from your computer, you do something to the inside, not the outside.

Here’s the good news:

Using the latest in brain research and physics we now have brand new ways to get “inside” your head to help you make the mental shifts you must make first, in order to see the changes in your life on the outside.

People have been using the wrong tools for making change and that is why it is so frustrating. With the advancements we’ve made in science, many more people will be able to make more money and finally live the lives they dream of, in total health and balance.

It takes about 15 minutes a day to rewire the neural circuits of the brain and the results are amazing. Read below to see what Forensic Psychiatrist Dr Louis Cady has to say:

(I have hundreds of testimonials just like this)

“It was like I had been driving around in a Pinto and John gave me a Lamborghini. After more than a decade in private practice, this workshop finally provided the ‘missing link’ for me to effect much faster change in my patients—and myself!”

Avoid failure: Take the first step

I’ve often been asked, “What do you think is the biggest contributing factor to failure?”

I can easily answer that question with one word… inaction.

To succeed, you have to do something, something that will move you toward what you want. When you’re not moving toward what you want, you’re suffering in what you don’t want. It’s like quicksand, and you get stuck there. It paralyzes you, so that just taking the first step seems unachievable.

But the first step is better than the quicksand because it’s one step closer to where you want to be and what you want to be doing. And that inaction is what kills more businesses and relationships than anything else.

Avoid failure… take action!

Dealing with overwhelm and low productivity

Do you ever feel like you have so many things to do and so little time to get them done? And not even the best certified life coach in the world could help you? Do you ever feel like life is happening to you and sometimes the high quality of your life or day just isn’t there anymore? There are no achievements of goals that you can remember?

In our fast-paced life we want to be many things, wonderful parents, lovers, business people with expertise business coaching, friends and contributors to others. In addition, we want to have lots of energy, money and to live a healthy life that is fun, fulfilling and rewarding. It is no wonder that overwhelm seems to become a common side effect.

I say that feeling overwhelmed is an “effect” because any feeling we have must have been produced by something prior to that feeling. Your thoughts, reactions and actions produce your feelings. So, what is the solution for eliminating your overwhelm and feeling less than highly productive? How can you help yourself experience more achievement of goals?

In my own quest to manage all of my daily, weekly and monthly responsibilities, and personal desires and to live an abundant and fulfilling life, I created a values-based decision and action process for myself that many other people have found useful. I hope you do also and that you embrace it as a form of conscious guided meditation of some type.

First and foremost, it does not need to be complicated. Simplicity is the way of nature and nature does what she does with maximum efficiency, on time, every time. So, it doesn’t take executive business coaching to know you don’t want to mess with that formula of success.

So, with that said, let me ask you a question. Of all the things you value in your life… what do you value the most? Is it your health? You connection with God? Making money? Your children? Your family? Doing charitable things? Compassion? Peace? Serenity?

We developed and acquired most of our values and achievement goals from our parents and teachers during our very early years of imprinting and through our modeling and mirroring stages between the ages of 14-21. Some of what our parents/teachers valued and deemed important to them may not be what we value most or what will serve our lives best.

When you start your day off with what you value most, your sense of doing and living with your highest purpose and for your highest values makes you feel great every day.

We all get caught up in everything there is to do and we get overwhelmed when we do not get it all done. It seems our day has just slipped by again. A common theme and lesson taught by certified life coaches is that by doing THE highest and most important stuff first, every day, the little things that don’t get done seem trivial. In addition, by prioritizing what is really important and MUST get done vs. all the stuff that needs to get done, you begin to shift your mentality to one of high impact and high value.

There are two steps to this process and they both require a bit of thinking and planning.

After guided meditation or any other time, take 15 minutes and write down all the things you value in your life. When you are done, rate them from 1-10 or more.

Next, ask yourself this question:

What must I do today to act upon my highest value?

For example, if health is on your list as one of the top things you value, what can you do every day (including today) to make sure that you take care of that value? You then schedule that somewhere in your day and you make sure you do it. If it’s being connected to God, what can you do every day, including today, to take care of that value?

When you take care of the highest values and most important things first, your life has more meaning and you feel fulfilled.

In addition, when you have lists upon lists of things to do, you cannot give the same value to all the stuff on the list. You must prioritize the ones that will have the highest impact on whatever outcome you want for your achievement of goals. Not all your activities are worth or are valued the same. Learn to say “no,” and learn to prioritize your to-do list and do only your highest-impact or income-producing activities first.

This process may take you 10 minutes a day, and it will save you hours every day when you apply it.

All my best,

John

The Value of an Hour

When I was 21 years-old, a gentleman asked me what I thought the value of an hour was. I honestly did not know how to answer the question. He went on to teach me one of the most valuable lessons I have ever learned.

He suggested that the value of an hour was priceless. This confused me some, so this is what he said to me.

“If you invest one hour each day in understanding yourself and your environment better, you will accumulate nine 40-hour weeks over the course of a year!”

Yikes! As you can imagine I was blown away when he put it to me that way.

Nine 40-hour weeks? This seemed impossible until I did the math. 365 days, times one hour each is…yup, nine 40-hour weeks!

He went on to ask me how good I could get at something if I did it all day, every day for just over 2 months. Well, you already know the answer to that.

I thought I could be awesome!

He went on to tell me that over the course of just five years, I would have invested the equivalent of 1,825 hours of focus on whatever I desired to accomplish my life.

Imagine for a minute, how good you can become at anything that you did one hour a day for the next year. How fit could you get? How much more in love would you get and give? How much more money could you earn?

Let me suggest that one hour is a small price to pay in comparison to the payoff. Just one hour a day may be the razor’s edge you need to really get the results you want in your life.

For me, the decision was easy. I have been studying human potential and the mind for over 20 years. Each time I think I’m getting a good handle on it, I am gently reminded of how much there is to observe and learn.

Is getting what you want worth an hour a day? I certainly hope so.

I still manage to set aside my hour to read motivational stories or listen to inspirational people. They are the fuel for my mind and it keeps me learning and yearning for more.

Please adopt an hour a day for yourself! Pick one area of your life that you want to improve and commit the next 90 days to that one thing.

I assure you that the results you achieve will be well worth the decision! And remember…you can’t take out of life more than you put in.

John
