I really like Dilbert— Scott Adams’ dry take on the ins and outs of corporate life always makes me laugh. Not long ago Adams did a series on mentoring, where engineer Wally seeks out the company’s CEO and asks him to be his mentor. “Yes I will!” the CEO replies. “You are wise to ask because it shows you have the drive to succeed.”

People generally refer to success as though it is within your grasp, if you simply work harder or find more time to accomplish your goals. The truth is, however, that vague statements such as these aren’t a key to unlocking anything but frustration.  Achieving great success isn’t about finding more time or working harder; instead, it’s a matter of being more effective with the time you do have.

Over the past ten years I have earned a reputation for obtaining rapid growth, and I’m often asked how I’ve managed to be the driving force behind so many business successes. After all, it’s one thing to be the lead on a project or business start-up, but it’s an entirely different thing to be the driving force behind it—that requires a much higher level of inspiration and skill.  Below I will share three simple tips extracted from my soon-to-be-released book on time management. With these skills at your disposal, the better question is: how could you possibly not be a driving force?

If you are a small business owner, independent contractor, or have any career in which you predominantly work for yourself, you've probably experienced a time when you've been without clients or otherwise out of work. This is always incredibly stressful; even if you've got money in the bank, at some point you can't help but worry that you'll never work again. You wonder how you're going to pay your bills, and what will happen if you're out of work for more than a couple weeks. Then the minute you get a new job, client, or contract, you most likely throw yourself right into the work. You get excited, devote all your time to it, and get everything accomplished quickly and efficiently. After all, getting the job done with speed and thoroughness is the best way to serve yourself, isn't it?
