Double Your Pay

by Brian Tracy

I have taught time management strategies to more than 100,000 people over the last few years and the successes these people have had have often been amazing. Many of them have doubled their output in as little as one or two days. One businessman in Philadelphia tripled his income and doubled the amount of time he spent with his family within twelve months. Another businessman from Montreal increased his income by 700% over a period of two years by disciplining himself to practice these principles every hour of every day.

You probably have the ability to produce and earn easily twice as much as you are producing and earning today.

Small Effects Yield Large Results

The good news is that even a small effort on your part to implement the very best of time management principles into your life will yield a tremendous return in increased productivity, performance and output. It is like stepping on the accelerator of your own life and moving yourself onto the fast track in your career.

Efficiency Starts At School

We usually learn how to work efficiently and effectively in our teenage years by doing our schoolwork and our homework in an excellent way and handing it in on time. If a young person does not learn how to work during their school years, he or she will have a tough time working when they actually take a paying job.

Most People Are Poor Workers

According to the studies, fully 50% of adults could not work a full day if their life depended upon it. They cannot stay on task. They are continually diverted and distracted into idle socializing, personal phone calls, shooting the breeze, arriving late, leaving early and taking too much time for coffee breaks and lunches. Time wasting consumes their day. Then they wonder why they are not entrusted with increased responsibilities and offered greater pay.

Be Paid More And Promoted Faster

The fact is that if you do an excellent job in a timely fashion, you cannot help but be paid more and promoted faster. We live in the first great meritocracy in human history. In a meritocracy, you are paid and rewarded purely on the basis of the valuable contribution you make to the lives and work of others. There are no glass ceilings and no barriers to advancement.

Action Exercises

Here are two things you can do immediately to put these ideas into action.

First, select the most valuable and important assignment you have to do right now, resolve to complete it, and start on it immediately.

Second, resolve to “work all the time you work” once you get started. Aim for 100% productivity. This could change your life.

    You are right, all the “little” distractions add up quickly! Another way to keep yourself focused and “on task” is to create a production schedule for yourself. We use Excel. Set it up so you are in “the green” when your project is done by your established time line. Projects that aren’t done by the due date are in “the red”. Then, train yourself to check your production spreadsheet before allowing yourself a social diversion. Here’s to your bigg success!
