Time management. Few concepts are so necessary, yet so dreaded. Volumes of information have been written about the topic, yet so many people still go through life scattered, stressed and stretched thin by the daily grind.
Too many of the books and courses on time management are full of vague advice and theory. That is why I set out to write a concise, specific book detailing how I reclaimed my time. “Master Your Time in 10 Minutes a Day” outlines the actions and habits I undertook in my most productive and fulfilling year to date.
In just a few short weeks, the book will launch, and I am so excited for the life-changing potential that it has. I believe so strongly in its power, that I want you to have it for free! (More on that in just a bit)
Your dreams can coexist with your life!
Do you have a dream for your life? Something huge? Something monumental? Of course you do; the ability to dream of a better future is one of the greatest parts of being human. Even better is the ability to make those dreams come true.
Look at your dream honestly and then answer this: What are you doing, today, to move in that direction? If you are like most people, if you are like I was just over a year ago, your response is probably something like “Well, if I had more time (more money, freedom from my day job,etc.), I would be able to pursue my dream.”
That was my mindset until just over a year ago, when I looked at my life was disappointed with what I saw. I knew that I had to make some huge changes. “Life” was slowly killing me.
With this realization, I launched on an ambitious journey of personal growth. I realized that I was in total control over my life; being overweight, financially insecure and disconnected from God and my family was my fault. I could no longer blame my demanding job, long commute, chores or family responsibilities for my shortcomings. The steering wheel and gas pedal were solely under my control.
You too have the ability to reclaim your life and your time. You have greatness in you, but you have to choose to unleash your potential. Achieving your dreams is not only possible, it’s likely easier than you think. As Henry David Thoreau said:
“If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; that is where they should be. Now put the foundations under them.”
When I began charting a new course for my life, the first thing I realized was that I needed a personal philosophy upon which to build my new life, from which to gain motivation and momentum. I spent a month writing, and rewriting, until I had a manifesto of 1300 words: my Personal Mission Statement.
This creed has been an indispensable part of my amazing growth over the last year. Its effect was so strong, I knew I had to share it with the world. In May 2013, I published A Personal Mission Statement: Your Road Map to Happiness on Kindle.
The personal mission statement is such an important foundation for time management, that I want to give you a free PDF copy of this book. When you sign up below to receive updates on the launch of “Master Your Time in 10 Minutes a Day,” I will instantly give you an access to your free copy of “A Personal Mission Statement.”
Let’s Talk Time Management
Armed with my personal mission statement, I set out to change my life. And change I did! I am now healthier than I have been in years. I save almost 5 times as much money as I did before. I am closer than ever to my wife, my family and God. I have written over 150,000 words in the last year, published 4 ebooks (“Master Your Time in 10 Minutes a Day” will make 5), and I can now see the day where I will be able quit my job and focus solely on writing, on fulfilling my true purpose and passion.
