One of the first sayings of Jim Rohn that had an impact on me was “Don’t major in minor things.”
One of the key characteristics of an entrepreneur is your focus on major goals. Once your life is dedicated to a purpose, a sense of urgency will develop as time takes on a different nature. You will sense the need to take advantage of opportunities and not squander time.
Darren Hardy, the author of The Compound Effect and one of Jim Rohn’s closest disciples, states: “Give me enough time, and I will beat virtually anybody, anytime, in any competition.”
As you strengthen your personal philosophy, you will spend less time doing minor things like watching mind-numbing television programming, getting lost in trivial pursuits or an overdose of ‘time-filling’ leisure interests, things that do not have a clear association with obtaining your business or domestic goals.
A New Concept of “Minor” Things
At first, you may associate “minor things” with frivolous pursuits, but this week I discovered that “minor” things includes allotting too much time to certain business activities, like spending too much time writing blogposts.
For a daily blog, I discovered I need to streamline my effort to put out content while bringing more focus to my subject matter. I do have other things I ought to be doing!
