In January, I listened to this Amy Porterfield podcast about planning for the new year where Amy challenged business owners to consider what was working and what wasn’t working with regard to growing their business. Her advice was to stop the activities that weren’t contributing to success.
On the surface, that’s the obvious action to take but how often do people continue down a less than productive path?
Soon after, I came across an article about toxic people that included the wisdom, “the more time you spend with people who are unhelpful, unsupportive, disrespectful, envious, resentful, dysfunctional or outright damaging to you, the less value all your time has.”
Time is a precious and limited resource and when minutes are gone, there is no getting them back. Too often we are overly attached to some initiative that once seemed like a good idea or to familiar relationships without ever evaluating whether they are right for what we hope to accomplish.
Consider both your personal and professional goals. Do the people and activities that consume your time support and align with the future you are working towards?
If not, let them go.
Would love to hear how you make the most of your time.
