“In every day, there are 1,440 minutes. That means we have 1,440 daily opportunities to make a positive impact.” Les Brown said.
Top performers, successful entrepreneurs, Olympic athletes and high achievers experience time differently. What they do in 1440 minutes is very different from what ordinary people do.
Warren buffest spends 80% of his day reading. He likes to be informed before he makes a business-changing decision. 24 hours is more than enough to build a remarkable life. Give your time a dollar value and exchange it for meaningful experiences and activities.
Time compounds. You don’t need a whole year to make an impact in your life. One thousand four hundred and forty minutes is all you need to kickstart a good habit.
In 24 hours, you can start reading a few pages of your favorite book and make it a habit. You can work on your high-value work first thing in the morning every day. You can make time to learn timeless skills.
You can check off essential tasks on your to-do list. You can start building an exercise routine to improve your health. And you can choose to spend quality time with your family.
The 1440 rule is a reminder to think about time differently every day. It’s a call to invest your most valuable tradable currency wisely. Twenty-four hours can help you build a better foundation to improve every area of your life.
Randy Pausch once said, “Being successful doesn’t make you manage your time well. Managing your time well makes you successful.”
