The most maluable asset is time

What is your most valuable asset?

While writing this, I am on the flight to Austin, Texas. I will participate in a seminar from Keith Cunningham. On the flight, I am listening to his book “The Road Less Stupid“. It inspired me to think about the most valuable asset. Which brought up this idea:

Sharing my thinking time about the most valuable asset with you, my dear!

What is the most valuable asset? It’s time!

Time is your most valuable assetTo do so,

– I will send you 2 to 3 times a week questions about a thinking time issue
– until the next day we collect our ideas
– on the third day, we evaluate the ideas and decide which one we are going to implement
– then it starts over again with the next issue

Due to being a big fan of simplicity, effectivity, and frugalism, I want to start with thinking about “saving time”. Because time is our most valuable resource. It creates space to do things, that improve your life, health, wealth, growth, vitality and happiness. So, saving time provides you with the biggest benefit. Apart from, if you are permanently bored. But I can’t see that risk in your case. Here are the thinking time questions for today:

  • What am I not doing anymore?
  • What would I recommend you, not to do anymore?
  • Which of my habits doesn’t produce results?

Find and share at least 3 ideas within the next 24 hours. Write down what comes spontaneously into your mind. Perfectionism is not an issue here. The more ideas the better. Spontaneous ideas need less time, so you are already implementing one time-saving method!

If you think you don’t have time for this exercise and taking care for your most valuable asset, means that you would have the biggest benefit from it! So, here are the questions, once again:

  • What am I not doing anymore?
  • What would I recommend you, not to do anymore?
  • Which of my habits doesn’t produce results?

My ideas about my most valuable asset are:

What am I not doing anymore?

  • Training up to 5 times a week. Only training 3 times a week, up to 1 h maximum with high intensity, e. g.
    • Cardio e.g. running, swimming cycling
    • Strengthning e. g. dumbles or weight liftig
    • Mindfullness e. g. yoga, streaching, tantric energy
  • Stop oversleeping, having 1 to 3 rests during the day, lifting night sleep to 6 h max
  • Working longer than 90 minutes continuously
  • Not writing blogs in German anymore, English only. Let Google translate it.
  • Having someone who does the German translation for me
  • Planing the outcome of tomorrow before I fall asleep. Then concentrate on the single most essential task

What would I recommend you, not to do anymore?

  • protect your most valuable assetClose the door behind you, when working.  And put an “ON AIR” sign with a sculp on the outside, e.g. while producing music, learning, writing or having your thinking time. So that nobody disturbs you and to avoid interruptions.
  • Only have those things on the table, I currently need to get my current job done.
  • Concentrate on a single task. No drinks, snacks, cigarettes while working. Nor playing with the smartphone, telephone calls, WA, FB, Emails while eating.

Which of my habits doesn’t produce results?

  • Instead of mentoring Chris individually, adding him to the mastermind
  • Not doing social media myself anymore
  • Removing those participants from the mastermind who don’t contribute

One member of the mastermind group came up with the following ideas:

  1. What am I not doing anymore?
    Because someone knows more about a particular subject than I do, I would never assume their advice on that subject is right for me.
  2. What would I recommend you not to do anymore?
    Do not talk about lack and limitations, unless you want more of the same
  3. What am I doing due to a habit which doesn’t produce results?
    Complaining about the changes in my company

Another member came up with these thoughts:

  • What am I not doing anymore?
  1. Let me persuade to dispose of any rubbish from tenants or the like.
    • Listen to boring stories of things that I do not really care about. (Keep your hard drive clean and clean.)
    • Do not feed your mind with any junk you do not care about, a quote from the series “Elementary” (Sherlock Holmes).
    • Endless phone calls with interested customers lead but, as quickly as possible but also as necessary, come to the point and arrange a visit.
    • pointless visits reduce Ala “I wanted to stop by”
    • waste (personal) too much time with Instagram etc.
    • Expand email templates to save time when answering emails
  2. What do you recommend to me to stop doing?
    • Check out what’s fun and then stop doing things that make you unhappy
    • To deal with Apple devices: D
    • Possibly. also from other digital things that will kill you like Newsletter2go etc.
  3. What do I do out of habit, which brings no results?
    • To be the good-natured one
    • Do things quickly and in between that just distract me
    • Listening to stories that do not interest me in principle

How a Mastermind Group Works

Please let me share this experience of our mastermind group with you: At a business retreat in Bali, held in April / May 2016 we were analyzing our strengths, biggest fun, passion, and dreams, and every mastermind participant tried to find out based on this analysis, what her or his driving values are. During the discussion about it, we asked everybody to guess the highest rated value of all of the other participants. Most of the guesses where pretty accurate. But in my case, every one of the other participants guessed a value, I did not find on my list. My list only contained: health, love, and growth.

But to my big surprise, everyone came up with „freedom“ as my most obvious first value. And after thinking about it, I understood, they are right. It was written on my forehead so that I wasn’t able to see it. And I was already living so much freedom, that I didn’t feel it as a driving force in my life. So they helped me to understand myself better.

Everybody has a blind spot like this. The participants of a mastermind group or a business retreat help each other to find the blind spots. If you get aware of your blind spot, you usually can make a big improvement with relatively little effort.

Members of a mastermind group need to be completely honest with each other, even if this might bring up facts, you don’t want to know about. Apart from that, they share their experience how they handle similar issues, to make the next step to improve your situation easier. So the big benefit of participating in a mastermind is, having a support team on your side, that helps to make you and your business grow.

Don’t forget, not an achievement,
but growth is the source of happiness

Mastermind WhatsApp Group

How does a Mastermind Group work?

who want to learn, grow and contribute. I am sharing coaching letters in the Mastermind WhatsApp Group and everyone can post their ideas to inspire other group members. I am sending two or three topics per week to inspire your thinking time, by sharing only short headlines with a link to the according blog. The participation is free of charge.

If you are interested to participate in this group:

Please send me a WhatsApp message on +491741828845

Furthermore, we got our Intensive Mastermind Group in Bali, which you can join.

For efficient use of the WhatsApp Mastermind group

  • I kindly ask you for your awareness that you are consuming the time of a lot of people with your posts, as well as the memory of their smartphones when posting photos and videos. Please make your comments short and on the topic. Long comments are better on the blog. Because then only those people, who are interested in the issue get to see it. Preferably send links to photos you want to share, instead of posting them.
  • You are welcome to make direct contact with the other group members. Please take private communication into direct chats with the person you want to talk to.
  • Due to members from different time zones, you may want to “mute” the Mastermind WhatsApp Group, so that it does not disturb you during the night.
  • The group language is English, at least most of the time 🙂
