John Maxwell says that “Many people think that they’re busy but it’s about how smart you work.” Get rid of some of the busy work you’re doing, the non-urgent stuff, and it will help you be more successful.
Who fills your calendar? If others fill your calendar it will be busy work. Ask yourself, “What can I stop doing and what can I start doing that is more successful?”

Have a contact list of important clients, something new to learn each day, and inspiring quotes that move things forward for yourself and others? How can I make a difference to someone today?
