Time Assets vs. Time Debts: A Different Way of Thinking About Productivity
Rich Hua stashed this in Productivity
A System For Your Time
Systems are more important that goals, and Time Assets are a perfect example of why this is true. Each Time Asset that you create is a system that goes to work for you day in and day out.
If your schedule is filled with Time Debts, then it doesn’t matter how hard you work. Your choices will constantly put in a productivity hole. However, if you strategically build Time Assets day after day, then you multiply your time exponentially.
Driving a car without a license plate might seem like an extreme way to save time, but it is also a level of strategic thinking that most people never embrace. This isn’t an approach that only works for Steve Jobs. It works for all of us.
Time Debts need to be paid. Be careful how you choose them. Time Assets pay you over and over again. Spend more time creating them.
