15 Time Wasters Successful People Avoid

"I hate getting to the office and wasting half of my morning on nonsense, avoid these common pitfalls.

Wasting time is every entrepreneur's fear. Time is of the essence and when you're managing people, paying payroll and meeting with clients, you don't have much to lose.

I stumbled across this cool looking info graphic and I thought it would be beneficial to share. It highlights 15 Time Wasters that Successful People Avoid.

I love #2 Not Finishing and #13 Unproductive Meetings. Take a look for yourself.

I found it interesting that the internet and software industry was among the top time wasting sectors alongside Insurance and Education. Also, interesting to see Indiana and Kentucky among the top time wasting states.

Whether you suffer from lack of focus or working too late, avoid these 15 Time Wasters and become a more involved, more productive entrepreneur!

Sometimes the hardest thing for us to do is to let go of everything we know and take a risk into the unknown. We often get some comfortable in our lives that we lose that inner spark and curiosity inside of us that questions everything we know. We almost have to stay childlike, meaning, we have to stay imaginative and not force ourselves to see through through the lens of our peers, but to look at what makes us tick and strive to be the best at it. 

I think people fail to take their leap into entrepreneurship or any adventure for that matter because they are scared of how they will "fly" once jumping off the rock. The best thing we can do is to just dive in and we'll wake up in a week or a month later and say, "Hey, I was so scared, but look where I am now! I accomplished something I value."

Embracing the journey is what makes life special.
