I like to make money, but I want my life to contribute something too. I believe in giving something back.
Of course, you have to make something to give something back. So - being successful can be a stage towards helping others too. You can't give unless you have something to give - and having something to give means being successful.
One way to be successful is to make effective use of your time. I heard an amazing interview with Alex Mandossian recently. I recommend you listen to it. He talks about his approach to "action management"...
He talks about how to spend your time effectively in your business by setting aside a certain amount of time every day for "revenue raising" activities only. His advice gets results!
You can listen to it at the link below (it's free)...
The "interview" (which is more of a monologue) takes a little over an hour. His method of "action management" can actually be applied to any important activity - though how he applies it to "revenue raising" is like a revelation! You can adapt it to other activities too - such as to helping others. Strike a balance.
We are meant to live balanced lives - at least that's what I've always believed.
Okay, I'll get off my soapbox for now. :)
