Dear Leader,

How often do you act Selfless, oh sorry Selfish by focusing on yourself and not others? How often do you say NO to things you don’t have time and energy to do?

We need to answer these important questions, this used to be one of my challenges but learning to overcome them has been a great lesson to me – You can’t be everything to everyone.

Having a one hour morning routine which focuses on me and my personal development is not selfish but selfless.

Saying YES to lots of things gives me no time to do things that matters. Focusing is about saying NO to somethings in a polite way that wont hurt anyone’s feeling.

Saying No to a person now so I can say Yes to a thousand people tomorrow is not selfishness but selflessness.

Not giving attention to all Dick and Harry that comes knocking on my door so I can attend to my Most Important Task (MIT) is not being selfish but Selfless.

Making out time to do things I love and crush on myself so I can love others well is not selfishness but selflessness.

Reducing the amount of time I spend on social media and emails. Allocating time to it and disciplining myself to do most important task is Selflessness.

You see, being productive is not being busy every minute of the day, it’s about being smarter to unlock time to do most important things in your life.

Help me tell a friend to stay focused and closer to his/her goals.
