Daily Charge: Negotiating For Your Time, Saying No, and Taking Charge of Your Agenda

daily charge May 28, 2020

This week's topic has focused entirely on helping you invest your time more efficiently so you receive a higher return, and you have the opportunity to do what truly matters inside of your business.  If you've missed any of this week, feel free to catch up here.


How and what we schedule is taken too lightly.  It is nothing less than bulldog negotiations - your agenda vs the agenda of others. 

The feeling of obligation coupled with a fear of failure causes us to say yes to actions, tasks, meetings, and a calendar that is not going to move our business and lives forward.

Completing a daily preview and review of your schedule will reveal if you are truly committed to your goals and targets.  Meaning, it will show you:

  • The percentage of time you allocated to meaningful action.
  • The percentage of time you allocated to meaningless tasks, meetings, and action.
  • The belief you have in yourself, your daily plan, and your ability to achieve your goals.


Stephen Covey
"You have to decide what your highest priorities are and have the courage pleasnantly, smilingly, and non-apologetically - to say no to other things.  And, the way to do that is by having a bigger yes burning inside."

Elaine St James
"There are often many things we feel we should do that, in fact, we don't really have to do.  Getting to the point where we can tell the difference is a major milestone in the simplification process."

1 QUESTION FOR YOU (and your daily charge)

How committed are you?

I challenge you to stop having silent standards today.  Understand what you must do and have clarity that you are in complete control of taking the necessary action.  Everything else in your schedule must be delegated or deferred.


Until Tomorrow,
