What if you could multiply your time?
Imagine waving your magic wand and you’re not limited to 24 hours a day anymore.
You have more time available to you each day. How would you use it?
You might invest more of it in your business. You might spend more time with your family.
Perhaps take up some new hobbies. You’re free to use it however you want.
Obviously, you can’t literally multiply your time. You’re limited to just 24 hours a day.
But how do some people get so much more done?
Some grind it out with 16+ hour days, but the cost of that is too high on their life, their relationships, and even their health.
Others devote themselves to one of the many popular time management systems.
I don’t know how many time management books & performance planners I’ve purchased over the years.
When it comes down to it, most time management revolves around these principles:
- Create long-term SMART goals and work backward to create mid-term and short-term goals.
- Create To-Do Lists of what needs to be done.
- Prioritize the essential. Focus on the 20% that produces 80% of the results.
- Use one of thousands of different planners, both physical and digital (my favorite is a super-simple daily & weekly planner called the Lion Planner).
- Schedule creative or more complex activities when you have more energy. Do routine activities when your energy is lower.
- Avoid distractions like email and the phone.
- Focus on one thing at a time instead of multi-tasking.
- Block out time for important activities – intense work alternated with short breaks.
- Create habits that fit your schedule and make your life easier.
- Whenever possible, touch communications once (open and answer at the same time).
- Learn to say “NO” to everything outside your primary vision.
But there is another principle that has been a whole lot more valuable to me than any of the above.
It’s something Dan Kennedy said, “Never start from scratch.”
Instead of creating something brand new, build on what has already worked.
For example, Apple doesn’t build a totally new phone each year.
Instead they’ve had 25 and growing versions of the iPhone.
They upgrade the same product more than once a year.
In fact, how many products total does Apple sell at any point in time?
They upgrade their current products lines each year instead of doing a lot of new things.
And they’re one of the biggest companies in the world.
It’s amazing how this principle applies to everything we do online.
It’s faster to create products.
It’s easier to put up websites.
Writing copy is faster.
Emails take less time.
You earn multiple streams of income from the same content.
The July issue of the Monthly Mentor Club shares dozens of ways to apply this principle to earn more in less time in your online business.
It’s called the “Lazy Man’s Guide to Multiplying Your Time.”
Yes, I’m the lazy man in that title.
There have been many times I’ve stopped a client and said, “That’s too much work. Do this instead…”
Not only does not starting from scratch cut down the work, it’s even more profitable.
Find out how much time you can save…and how much more money you could make…by applying a few of my ‘lazy’ methods.
The July issue will go out to all subscribers on July 1st. Plus you get access to dozens of special reports, videos, and free bonuses just for giving it a try.
