Time Management By Gary Vaynerchuk – I am here to help you build a better daily structure and be in control of your life. Today we’ll take a look at the six-time management techniques from the guy who has no time, Gary Vaynerchuk. Gary is a Belarusian American entrepreneur author of multiple best-selling books, speaker, and internet personality known as Gary vee. He’s best known for growing his family wine business from 3 million to 60 million. And leading Vayner media and vendors digital marketing and social media companies. Here is how Gary we seize time management.
You got 24 hours a day to let’s say you work from 9:00 to 5:00, cool that’s 8 hours a day. And let’s say you commute an hour there an hour back that’s 10 hours total. I want to spend time with your family, awesome. You can spend two hours with them when you get home. Need 7 hours of sleep per night, great no problem. But you still have 5 hours a day left. The question is, what are you doing with those 5 hours. and what are you doing with your weekends.
The reality for many people is that they’re spending that time watching Netflix, hanging out with friends, or just relaxing. If people would be using their time to hustle, then they wouldn’t have to complain that they don’t have time to build their business. Here are six strategies that Gary Vee uses to get the most out of its time every day, so let’s dive in.
Number one stay in audit mode to stop procrastinating. Gary is always staying in the audit mode. Meaning that is constantly moving forward and adjusting priorities in real-time. For example, if there was something super important yesterday, then that might become less important, depending on what hits his inbox today. Gary is completely obsessed with dealing with the most important things at any given moment. And that means that some priorities will be pushed back. Something might go from the second most important to the 9th or 10th most important thing to do. And might not be addressed for an entire year. And that’s okay as long as he’s dealing with important morning things.
Number two, don’t be crippled by unknown problems in your business. When it comes to dealing with the problems in business or in personal life. Gary doesn’t get scribbled by what he doesn’t know. This is important, so many people struggle. Because they don’t have the perfect knowledge around every fire the habit work or in their personal life. They feel like they need to have the perfect plan to address every single thing that goes wrong.
But that is simply not true. If Gary’s in the process of addressing one fire and another more important pops up, he will address that one. And if fire number four gets out of the hand, he’ll switch his focus on that one. Gary’s playing for the long term, which means he has to keep dealing with the fires one after another for years. So he needs to be constantly adjusting without overthinking whether he’s making the perfect moves or not.
Number three maintain motivation by loving what you do. So many people are struggling with motivation to keep going because they don’t like what they’re doing. The reason Gary can maintain motivation without losing energy is that he loves everything that he does. He loves doing the askgaryvee show, he loves flying all over the country for meetings, he loves pitching clients and getting rejected. He loves selling stuff, it’s why he still goes to dollar stores and garage sales to flip the product on eBay. Even though it’s a horrible use of his time as a CEO, but he loves it, and that’s all that matters.
People who love what they do will always outperform and outlast those who do it just because they have to. So if you want to build your personal brand, then go and do it. Don’t complain about time or money or anything else. But start producing the content. One of Gary’s quote goes like this, look yourself in the mirror and ask yourself. What do I want to do every day for the rest of my life? Do that.
There is no way that you will lose motivation while doing something that you truly love and would love to do for the rest of your life. And this part about loving what you do actually contributes to your time management as well. Because you’re more likely to find the time or make time for the things that you love. Compared to those things that you don’t really look forward to.
Number four or dit what you’re doing with your time. Nobody you know ever made it without putting in the work. They all work their asses off to get where they’re today. Sure, you might know someone rich because their grandparents gave them the money. But you don’t know anyone who made it on their own without putting in the hard work. The dirt isn’t glamorous, so people don’t show it off. And when you see somebody succeeding, you think that it happened overnight.
You didn’t see Beyonce singing and dancing at the age of four, you only see her on stage now with fame and fortune. So you have to audit your time constantly, what are you doing with your time every day. Are you moving closer to your goals or not. You can audit your time by reflecting each day on the things that you did. And use that reflection to make plans in the future. We all have time; the difference, however, is that some people use their time to achieve their goals while others waste their time.
Number five goes faster in hours that you are working. Gary Vee is not only working 18 hours a day. But he’s also working fast as hell in those 18 hours. Daily he’s scrutinizing his days, writing down to the second while trying to fit as much stuff as he can into those hours. There is not a moment that he spends messing around. Many people don’t try to squeeze out everything they can out of each day. They take things easy and then complain that they don’t have enough time. Why do people take 1/2 hour for lunch, that is a total waste of time? People will never have time if they’re wasting it every day.
Number 6 stop judging yourself. Gary says that one of his biggest strengths is balancing being accountable for not judging himself. To keep himself accountable, Gary’s taking responsibility for everything that is happening in his life and in his business. Gary says if an employee messes up, I hired that person. If the system doesn’t work, I approve that process or system, everything runs through me. But at the same time, I’m numb the judgment, even my own judgment of myself. I know I’m doing the best I can.
Judging yourself is a huge vulnerability because everyone else is already doing it for you. So stop judging yourself and put in the work. The biggest problem with judging yourself is that it will give you a lot of self-doubts. And that will stop you from taking action to achieve the things that you want.
