Time is money? The more productive you can make each minute of the day the
more you will make on the return of your invested effort. Being smart about the
way you work within the hours you give will also set you apart. Focus on a core
goal without distraction, practice and start saying no more than yes. It is not
easy but most certainly more profitable. How rigorous are you at saying no to
the things that you know cannot add value to your business development goals.
How often do you calculate the return on your time investment and what you

organization is an important part of your own continued personal growth.
Do the maths, stop being British about meeting people, plan where you go and
whom you need to meet, spend really valuable time trying to tackle big and
important new clients whom could transform the potential of your business. Be
bolder than you have previously dared and then celebrate your success, next
time aim higher and bigger yet again.
