Entrepreneur coach Matt Sandrini discusses why you should invest your time instead of spending it.
Invest Time in Yourself
Matt Sandrini was stuck in a dead-end job. What seemed like a promising career turned out to be a prison-bound to spreadsheets. That was not what he wanted in life. There had to be a better way, so he invested time to learn a better way.
By learning to invest your time rather than just spending it, you may see the results Matt experienced. He was finishing the same amount of work as his coworkers on any given day. The amazing thing was he was finished by 1 pm, four or more hours sooner than his coworkers.
Investing in yourself is the best investment when it comes to time. What you do today will impact your future. Your present is the result of your past. What skills would you like to gain today that will change the trajectory of your future?
