Last week, members in the Get Ahead Club had the opportunity to listen to my interview with Elizabeth Saunders. Elizabeth is an internationally recognized expert time coach with clients in North America, South America, Asia and Europe. Her experience as a full-time entrepreneur and her training in coaching and leadership development lead to McGraw Hill publishing her first book The 3 Secrets to Effective Time Investment: How to Achieve More Success With Less Stress.
Here are a few things I learned from the interview with Elizabeth:
-Front load your week. If something needs to get done this week, do it at the beginning of your week! If an emergency or something urgent comes up, your tasks will be done and you can take care of the emergency.
-Work life brilliance is when time is aligned with your priorities and you feel good with how you spend your time.
-Time is limited. Because it’s a finite resource, the only way to achieve more success with less stress is to invest it in what really matters most to you, your priorities.
-Effective time investment is the most important factor in experiencing the life that you deserve.
“The rich invest in time and the poor invest in money.” -Warren Buffet
-The way you decide to invest your time can have a dramatic life or death impact. A University College London professor did research that found that those who pulled long hours had 67% of the heart attacks of the entire study. Even if you don’t foresee an early demise by overwork, you should know that effective time investment is the single most important factor in releasing your potential and experiencing the life that you deserve.
