7 Principles to help you work smarter; not harder

Work Smarter

The Buckster writes: When first getting in business I used to work a total of 18 hours a day.  I am not going to lie I was putting in time.  I knew I wanted to be successful and there was a lot of work ahead of me.  What I did not know is that a lot of the work that I was doing was busy work.  There were so many things that I accomplished that is I would have asked questions I would not have done or it would have been easier with a little mentorship.  I believe and know now that mentorship  is very important to any goal we are trying to achieve.  As I read the article 7 principles to help you work smarter; not harder there were 2 principles that stood out and 1 principle that made me think just a tad bit differently.  The principle Energy Management is critical really stood out because during my time of working 18 hours a day there were lulls in the day where I became lackadaisical because me energy level just was not there.  I just never took into account that getting the proper rest and nutrition would be that critical throughout the day.  It makes perfect sense.  You know my question to everyone is why do we think that the principles that have been established only lasts while we think about them and that they are not endlessly enabled.  The second principle that I agreed with is Its not about the money.  There are so many experiences we go through in life that means more to each of us than money.  As we grow our businesses there will be so many experiences that we will lean on that will not involve money.  I have gotten into intense heated conversations because individuals translate prosperity to money.  I too have been guilty of this but as I go through business helping people this is not necessarily the case.  We understand that money is a resource and in most circumstances money is the end goal but it is not the end all be all.  I tell people all the time that I love the adventure that life has to offer.  My personal slogan it Take this World By Storm.  Chase that dream and make money a secondary focus and you will attract all that you need for life.  The third principle that changed my focus is A New Definition of Lazy. So many times in life lazy carries a negative meaning.  In the article the author flips the scripts and brings the definition of lazy from a different prospective.  To be honest, I can see it from the prospective of the author.  Bottom line, Lazy is just another word for innovation when we improve upon a thing.  At the end of the day we want to be more productive to do more things during the day and in order to do this we must improve some process during our day.  If this means we improve just so we get that extra 30 minutes of rest / laziness then so be it.  We are to improve upon everything that we achieve in this life.  The article was just awesome and I invite you to read it.
