In this picture, …

you see my feet hanging through my ceiling. I was attempting to do work at my house without a friend to help me. I have found that when I try to do work on my house or my car without a friend, I end up in trouble. In 2014, I found myself in trouble at work. I was put on a 90-day personal improvement plan. The circumstances are not important right now; however, it was a big challenge to my job at the time.

During the year of 2014, I would wake up with nightmares of my boss coming to my home at 7 AM and firing me before I could go to work. Still to this day, I can clearly see his car at the time, and him walking up the sidewalk to that house. What happened after I was written up, is that an upper-level manager pulled me aside and offered to coach me.

Quality, Quality, Quality

Something that I have long (3 decades) practiced is the value of a great product over multiple cheaper products. When I was about 12 to 14 years old, I realized that I was really hard on clothing, shoes, and other gear. I started working around that time and willing spent money on things that were a little nicer.

When I was 16, I bought my first pair of Nike high top shoes. They were around 80$. A family friend really ribbed me over those shoes. I remember him saying, “are you going to eat those if you run out food?”

It didn’t bother me and that pair of sneakers lasted a good while. Later in high school, I started wearing jump boots and I even wore them for a few years after I graduated. they weren’t as expensive as some sneakers and they lasted longer than the sneakers I was buying.

As I got older, I continued to switch brands when I saw a better quality product over what I had. So, while I may spend more on what I have, I know they will last. This all came to mind because of this pair of oxfords I retired today after I collapsed the footbed. I think I have had these shoes for 4 or 5 years. I think they ran about 120$ when I got them and only in the last week the footbed collapsed and then I realized that the tread on one sole was really thin … see through thin.

I liken this to our lives. what are we filling them with? what influences are we allowing? Are you willing to give up some good or better things for the things that are the best? I know that for me, that is always the play!

Make the best choice you can with the information you have; then, go to work on educating yourself and gaining experience and a mentor that has proof of success by their associations and bank account.

What is your Hourly Value?

Today, I started cutting the grass and I about ¼ of the way into the yard the mower stopped working.

In the last month, I learned from Patrick Bet-David that as we grow our business, we need to let go of other chores or tasks so that we can focus on our business. Patrick says, stop doing the 10$ an hour jobs. Send your shirts out or hire a cleaning lady. Do whatever you need to so that you have more time for the more important things.

So, I crossed the street and borrowed my neighbors lawn mower. It is smaller and not as powerful. Needless to say, I spent an extra 2.5 hours mowing the grass tonight because I didn’t take time to take it in when it started making noise.

Grant Cardone teaches the wealthy buy time. He purchased a plane and people said, dude why did you buy a plane. He said, you don’t understand, I bought time. I get it, especially after tonight. Let’s say that my hourly wage is 200$ an hour for my profession. Tonight my busted mower cost me 500$ because it took me an extra 2.5 hours to mow the grass. I will be getting someone else do do it, because it will cost me less to have a lawn service.

The question for you is what task or chore around your home (or business) is costing you too much?
