"Time and consequences go hand in hand."
When you hear the word "consequences," what's the first thing you think?
Not unlike the word "habit," "consequences" has a predominately negative connotation. Yet, by definition, consequences simply means "the result or effect of action or condition."
Think about how you spend your time. Anything that consumes your time and attention enables consequences, both good and bad.
Brian Tracy likes to say, "Failures spend the majority of their time in low-value, low-return consequence activities. Whereas successes spend the majority of their time in high-value, high-return consequence activities."
That may sound obvious, but the fact remains that very few consider deeply the long-term value—the consequences—that will result from their present actions.
BT goes further: "Successes will spend a great deal of time just thinking about which activities will yield the greatest consequences relative to their goals and ideals."
MG and Jen's explore BT's observation and discuss the significance of spending time thinking about the activities that will yield the greatest results before engaging in them.
