Are there really only 24 hours in a day?

I am an eternal optimist when comes to thinking I can do anything; as much as I want. My brain tries come up with ways to get more time in a day. Maybe I can sleep a little less. Maybe if I work harder I can get everything done. Yet there is a price to pay. A trade-off for every choice you make. And there is always something more.

Still, there are only 24 hours in a day.

Work. Relationships. Health. Recreation. Hobbies. Self-improvement. You need to be balanced or you will eventually pay the toll for cheating. Balance is a personal definition; your balance is not mine.

As an entrepreneur the challenges are often limitless. Negotiating a lease. Hiring. Performance reviews. Meeting and exceeding customer expectations. Accomplishing as much as you can in the time available. Working on the business. Working in the business. Strategy. Marketing. Sales. Keeping everyone happy. Paying the bills.

The default is to let the world choose for you. To be busy but not really going where you want.

Yet there are only 24 hours in a day.

The only choice is to make a choice… on how you spend it.

Focus on your most important work, the things you create the most value doing and give you the most happiness. Create balance and have your business work for you.

Choose how you spend each of your 24 hours.
