Resources from Gary O'Sullivan:

"I have had the privilege to have known Gary for many years professionally and personally. Sometimes the quality of the people we meet can be judged by the distance between professional and personal. With Gary there is no distance; honesty, integrity, passion for people, and the ardent desire to succeed are what Gary brings to any business and friendship. Your business will not improve until your people do, and Gary can show the way. One of God's truly special people."

Valuing your time

You can value your time.

When you know what your time is worth, you will be more focused on how you spend your time. A person who makes $50,000 a year understands that his or her time is worth $25 an hour or $0.42 a minute (based on working 8 hours a day, five days a week, fifty weeks a year).

What does it mean to value your time?

It means making every minute matter.

It means that wasting time matters.

It means that being productive matters.

Make every minute matter
To manage your time effectively, you must make every minute matter. Any time you waste five minutes, you don’t work an hour—you now only work 55 minutes.

Wasting time matters
If you waste five minutes a day, every day, for a year, you will lose $525. Waste ten minutes a day, and you lose $1,050. Yes, time is money.

Being productive matters
To be successful in selling, you must learn to be productive every minute of every day that you are working. Time is spent or invested, and you make that selection every minute of every day.

Remember what Carl Sandburg and Alice Bloch said about valuing time:

Time is the coin of your life . . . Be careful lest you let other people spend it for you.
Carl Sandburg

We say we waste time, but that is impossible. We waste ourselves.
Alice Bloch
