What does it mean for you working hard? Do you ever had a feeling of tiredness, but at the same time it seems you didn”t much accomplished? So, staying until late night does not mean you are doing something meaningful.
For example, being at office, does not mean you are doing sales calls, you might scroll Facebook or update software. Do you see the difference?
The most valuable question you can ask yourself is: “What is the most valuable use of my time right now?” By questioning that to yourself, you will naturally draw yourself to the things that really matter.
I remember a times when I worked in our family business. Those were times when I was working more that 12 hours, but I loved it, and it was our family business. Everybody would contribute that much, if they really care, but the question is, where will that get you. Do you taking proper care about yourself as well. I didn”t! That”s why I had a painful back. Was killing me.
One day I said STOP to everything, because I had to take better care of myself. I stopped working so hard. I focused on myself, my health, wellbeing and everything, and eventually I changed country of living, and thus far that is my best decision ever. I grew as a person.
I still wonder what does it mean to work hard, because let”s face it, people all over the world are waking up. They see potential in themselves and others, and they are trying to pursue their dreams. I am one of them. I try to be specific about my goals and everyday do something about it. I tried to fill myself with coffees, cut off my sleep, but it didn”t work, I felt so tired. Our body and cells needs rest.
If you keep asking yourself question why is that, why is that, why is that, eventually you will come up with answer. I still wonder what is the best use of my time. Should I go out with this friend, or better stay at home and work on my business. If I go out, I might be bored, but most importantly I might meet somebody new. What should I do?
Working hard doesn”t always mean being effective. We should be able to take a break, to sit back and relax. I was told just recently on my job how I am a “layd back”person. I took that as a compliment, because there are very rare people who are able to stay calm in a midst of busy times. I just don”t see anymore why we should freak out about the jobs that we are doing. Everything will solve out, eventually.
Now, your turn! What does it mean to work hard for you? How many hours do you put in your business? Maybe I just need to ask myself question more frequently: “What is the most valuable use of your time Maja right now?” And that will give me clarity, put me away of endless scrolling my Instagram and Facebook feed, and focus on the things that really matter.
How do you managing your time? What does it really mean for you to work hard? Do you feel tired and overwhelmed working hard? Do you feel like on a good track working hard? Do you feel like you wanna be some place else working hard or you have that sense or rightness?
