Making Time

Willie Nelson once sang "If you've got the money, honey, I've got the time." He had it backwards. The real issue for us is "if you've got the time, you'll make the money." What I mean is if you have the time to do the most important things, the things that link to growth, then you'll make money! The problem is that we let the urgent crowd out the important and confuse activity with priority. Try this: break your activities (and all the new demands you think are being placed on you) and divide them into Rocks (the most important), Sand (next in importance), and Water (last in importance). Then, with a blank weekly schedule, put the Rocks into your calendar first, the Sand activities can work around the Rocks, and the Water tasks can flow around Rocks and Sand.
