The Power Of An Hour

 I thought about how much time I've wasted in my life by not being fully focused and dedicated on goals or life for that matter.The other day I accidently wasted an hour of my morning looking for my keys.Sounds silly right ?I got up at my normal time around 5:45 .Did my normal morning routines.But when it was time to leave around 7:15.I couldnt find my keys.Spent all the way up to 8:20 looking for them.
While I was driving
 to work to try and make up for the the time I had lost.I realized that hour could have been spent more productively.Also I had been giving my job an extra hour of my life burning a  candle that I couldn't get back.Now I had be doing this for the past  7 1/2 years though.That's (112 days  / 3.6 months)Wow!! how much time I've donated to the rat wheel.Time that wasn't  used to get ahead only to try and get off work a little earlier.The time could have been used learning,relaxing,meditating,and whole slew of other activites other than donating to a job.My point is time is precious .We give our time to something or someone everyday.How much do you give to anything you are trying to accomplish,achieve,be or learn?Why do you think we get paid by the hour?Alot can be done or earned in an hour.By the way an hourly wage is the lowest form of getting paid.No matter how much the company makes your earnings are capped off.Let's say you make 30,50 or 100 an hour.Now thats good money right?But how much do you think whoever is paying you that is making to be at a far greater profit?
We all give the same time account everyday and in our life but where are your time deposits being made?Usually you give or make time for what you want.Based on your priorites.Just be sure to make a time deposit in your own account.What's an hour /day out of 24.?
Don't cheat yourself... There are 168 hours in a week,730.4848 in a month ,765.81 hours in a year

Time is the coin of your life. It is the only coin you have, and only you can determine how it will be spent. Be careful lest you let other people spend it for you.

Chasing Freedom 2014 Years Theme

This year I've decided to step my commitment up to Chase Freedom more aggressively this year.I've themed the year "Chasing Freedom".To me it helps if you theme your year.It gives you the framework and strategic vision for the planning of your year.I can't speak for any of my readers or folowers of this blog but it's a bout being passionate about your life and life's work in general.I knew at an early age I wanted to be financially indepentdent.Being able to create my income  for things I'm interested in and passionate about.Solving a problem,filling a need.Being able to dictate my time and worth.I can recall years I've being pursuing this but with no definite plan and lack of stong goal setting.Not hard enough rules .Soft rules don't work to well.I felt I was doing it in my mind but when I look at how focused you have to be I fell short of that.Don't get me wrong its not an easy thing being able to call your own shots.It's much easier for the average person to be told when to wake up,how much they are going to make ,when you can take off and so on(A job).But life is too short to go through everyday not being fully engaged in it.I mean what are we doing?Start something,be something ,commit to something.Everybody is capable of being who they want to be.Set the vison of your highest self and work the plan to get there.With realistic goals,action and commitment.Me, mine is freedom.To work with who I want on what I want and dictate my income level.A job (which we all need in the pursuit of our goals) has to much control.And just think somebody started the company you work for out of a vision and a dream.They just kept working on it....

Thank God it's Friday... Oh God it'sMonday

Is this a normal week for you? Well this us about 98% of the workforce. Now is this we're you want to be and stay at for the duration of your working years.Kicking, scratching and fighting just for those 2 days of your so called weekend. With family, personal , responsibilities ,resting and any other things that come up.How much of these 48 hours do you really have.Think about it,out of your pie,your time,life how many people to you owe and give a slice to?And how much is left for you?The crust maybe or maybe a thin slice?

Over the years I've learned that time is more valuable than money.There is no limit to the amount of money you can make in a designated time ,but there are only so many hours in a day.This is why a hourly wage(trading time for money)is the lowest way of earning your worth.A lot can be accomplished in an hour.As an employee our earning $ is capped off at a set rate.
Growing as an entrepreneur I realized why it takes a little longer to get to your destination while maintaing a job.Most of your waking hours are dedicated to working on someone else's dream.
The time and energy you have left has to managed and dispersed properly to acheive your goal(s).With a current 9-5,family,other responsibilites,sleep,etc you really have to get the most effective use of your time if your truly committed and focused.
Now when the so called weekend comes your juggling everything else you have to do while chasing your dreams.Set and make time for you,you give it to everyone else.Don't forget to invest in the most important commodity,yourself!!
