Did you know that right now if you’re working hard every day and yet you’re not sitting on a huge bank balance, driving the nicest cars and dating your ideal partner, then it’s possible that you may be the victim of a “Time Vampire”
I know this sound ridiculous, and obviously we’re not talking about the supernatural blood sucking vampires here, but if you take the time to read all 3 points in this article I can almost guarantee that you’re going to spot at least one type of “Time Vampire” that is draining your time, your life, your energy away from you, and holding you back from finally being successful in life.
Think about this.
You have the same amount of time in your day as Leonardo Da Vinci… Yet he managed to do all this!
“He was an Italian polymath whose areas of interest included invention, painting, sculpting, architecture, science, music, mathematics, engineering, literature, anatomy, geology, astronomy, botany, writing, history, and cartography. He has been variously called the father of paleontology, ichnology, and architecture, and is widely considered one of the greatest painters of all time.”
A little known fact is he was also an incredible Vampire Hunter! (Well specifically a time vampire hunter, he knew how to DESTROY his time vampires with ease, and by the end of this article you will too!)
And if you haven’t invented architecture or something crazy like that then you REALLY need to read this article all the way through to the end and you really need to start destroying some time vampires of your own.
Beyoncé, Warren Buffet, heck even Donald Trump all have the same amount of time in their day as YOU!
Yet somehow they manage to get paid more for their time, have more time with their family and still have time to work on their hobbies and side projects.
Let’s face it, if you’re even reading this article it’s because you suspect that somewhere in your life you have a “time vampire” someone or something that is draining your energy and time every day, getting you to focus on something other than your own success.
And the more you “FEED” that vampire, the stronger it gets, the more it looks on your as someone it should get food from, and of course…
… The less energy you have for yourself!
And less energy is going to leave you waking up every day, tired, exhausted, and even if you have the intention to finally get somethings done off your task list that “Time Vampire” is only gonna come along again and prevent you from putting the energy into the things you know you need to do to get successful.
Once you identify which of the 3 “Time Vampires” I’ll tell you EXACTLY what to do to get rid of it.
Imagine how much you can get done when time vampires stop draining your energy.
You’ll be more successful than ever, have more energy to spend with your family, more money in the bank for working less hours, and you will even notice you have more free time, to spend relaxing or focusing on some of your favorite hobbies.
Now as you read through the 3 points in this article, look for signs that you may have one of the 3 common time vampires, and if you do notice you have one, be sure to read through to the end of the article and I’ll show you one of the easiest methods to destroy them all.
The Distracting Time Vampire
These are the most common form of time suck. You sit down to get some work done, and then a notification pops up on the screen, before you know it you’re reading Facebook, or a text message, or an email and “THWACK!” The times gone.
Now you may feel that the message is important (often because someone is telling you it is… but we’ll get to that in a minute) but it’s still eating the time you put aside to get your own success.
When Leonardo Da Vinci sat down to work he had zero distractions, locked himself in a room for hours and just got his stuff done!
By killing the notifications that can pop up when you’re trying to achieve you’re going to achieve so much more in less time.
Here’s the best bit about this. You’re faster and better at working than you imagine, if you set a timer for 25 mins, you can achieve more in those 25 minutes than you normally do in 3 hours with Distractions!
The Caring Time Vampire
These vampires are the hardest to avoid, but they must be avoided at all costs! For most people it’s their mom, and I’m not for one second saying you shouldn’t spend time with your mom. What I am saying is that when you want to sit down to get your stuff done, you HAVE to put some distance between yourself and people who drain your time to make sure you’re ok.
You’re fine. You’re tough, you’re about to become successful.
As nice as it is to have someone bring you some cookies and milk while you’re working, it’s a “time suck”.
Every time you’re stopping to eat, or talk, you’re multitasking, and multitasking is the same as “Not Achieving”
When you give yourself a list of things to do, you want to sit down and knock them out.
Take a break after 25 minutes of working for 5 minutes and eat some food, talk to your mom, do whatever you’ve got to do, but keep it limited to 5 minutes!
Then get straight back to being an incredible achiever!
Because you were born to be successful, you KNOW it!
And once you get those time vampires in check, you WILL become successful.
The Unsuccessful Time Vampire
These are the worst. They hit you right in the heart strings. Asking you for help with something they know is easy for you to help with. Maybe it’ll take 5 minutes, maybe it’ll take $20… But the hidden cost is your focus! Your concentration!
Not to mention the fact that I’ll bet you don’t have just 1…
… the average person has at least 4 “Unsuccessful Vampires” around them, draining your energy and getting you to put your energy into helping them instead of helping yourself.
I’m not saying you can’t help people. In fact the key to success is often helping people.
But you want to help the RIGHT people, people that are willing to help you too.
Putting energy into people who aren’t putting energy back into helping you get successful is a BAD investment into your own success.
Successful people surround themselves with people who are working towards their own success.
That’s why successful people all seem to know each other, even before they become successful, it’s rare that someone makes it on their own. Look at people like Steve Jobs and Bill Gates. Friends and competitors. They became ridiculously successful because they grew together.
When the Time Vampires are gone, getting results is easy.
So in summary the reason you may not be getting the success you want is simply because you may have “Time Vampires” draining your energy, draining the time you should be putting into getting the results you want.
In fact it doesn’t take a lot to turn your life around to a point where you are not only incredibly successful, but you have more time, more energy and more incredible relationships in your life.
You just have to do these 3 things:
1) Set a timer for 25 minutes and focus on just one task at a time with no distractions. You’ll be blown away at just How much you achieve in record time.
2) Restrict the communication you have with loved ones, especially during the work day. This has the added benefit of improving the quality of the time you spend with them, and stops them saying things like “you’re never present when we’re together”
3) Attend success events to surround yourself with people who are working towards similar goals to you so you can grow together.
