Lost time is never found again.” -Benjamin Franklin
Unless you somehow got access to a time machine, it’s impossible to reverse time.
People often say, if only I had more time,then I would pursue my dreams.
If I had more time, my kids would love me.
If I had more time, I’d be rich.

Fill in the blank, because an excuse canfabricate any outcome.
But success doesn’t like excuses.
In fact, success never rewards excuse makers.
*But what if you didn’t make excuses?*
What if you hustle and grind every day,burning the midnight oil, completelyfocused and on task, and are still notmaking much progress?
Under these circumstances, there’s a good chance you’re doing too much.
“Too much?” you ask.
How can you do too much?
Well, too much of the wrong things.
The Pareto Principle “80 / 20 Rule”
20% of what you do will account for80% of your results.
You’re likely focusing too much onthe 80% of things that are gettingyou 20% of your results.
Do a little reflection on what you’redoing every day and determine whetherits busy work for the sake of being busy, or if it’s work to create real,meaningful results.
*This is about being honest withyourself*
Does it make you feel good, thinkingof yourself as a hustler, pounding yourhead against the wall, just for the sake of doing it?
Don’t let your ego trip you up.
Sure, it’s encouraged to give as much time to your work as possible, but make sure it’s the right work.
There are, of course, certain inferiortasks that MUST get done, but thoseshould be outsourced.
“For every thing we don’t like to do, there’s someone out there who’s really good, wants to do it and will enjoy it.” -Josh Kaufman
So pass as much of the 80% of workalong as possible and focus on thatmagic 20%.
You’ll be shocked at how much progressyou make, without having to kill yourself.
This advice is commonly quoted as “working smarter rather than harder.”
Strength and Honor,

P.S. If you’re not financially suited to outsource, there’s still no excuse to continue focusing on tasks that waste time.
Get the real shit done, before knocking out the rest.
