Where does the time go?

My friend, Michael Clouse, wrote an awesome article which breaks down a week into various activities.  With the use of a calendar and efficient use of time, you can answer the question, "Where does the time go?"

Overcome The "No-Time" Syndrome
by Michael S. Clouse

Millions of Network Marketing distributors are building successful part-time businesses in their spare time. And yet perhaps you're thinking, "I'd like to, but I just don't have the time...." There are 168 hours in every single week. Where does the time go? Take a good long look:

Activity                                   Time Spent                Time remaining

8 hours a day /                        56 hours a week /      112 hours remaining.

Full time job:
8 hours a day /                        40 hours a week /        72 hours remaining.

2 hours a day /                        10 hours a week /        62 hours remaining.

2 hours a day /                        14 hours a week /       48 hours remaining.

Family & Entertainment:
2 hours a day /                        14 hours a week /       34 hours remaining.

2 hours a day /                       14 hours a week /        20 hours remaining!

So where do the remaining 20 hours typically go? According to The Nielsen Company, the average American watches more than four hours of TV each day (or 28 hours per week, or two months of non-stop TV-watching per year). In a 65-year lifetime, that person will have spent nine years glued to the tube! How much is the TV habit costing you? $5,000 a year? $10,000 a year? More? Rethinking your TV habit and investing a few extra hours into your own home-based business could make you rich. In other words, you can either watch Who Wants To Be A Millionaire, or you can become one! That, again, is your Future Choice.

So the next time someone says to you, "I'd like to, but I just don't have the time...." show them the above referenced chart. After all, it appears we all have enough time to do what is truly important.

All the best,
