You are now listening to Leverage for Growth. Hey everybody, this is Jesse P. Gilmore, founder of Niche in Control and creator of Leverage for Growth. Welcome to the Daily Leverage Edition. Today’s topic is this, the gift of time, making every second count with true connections. Sit back, relax, and welcome to today’s Daily Leverage. So today, I’m going to talk about a lesson that recently hit home for me, the immense value of time. It’s a gift, a precious commodity. But how do we ensure we’re investing it where it truly matters? Dive in with me as we explore this together. You know, life has a way of teaching us these powerful lessons when we least expect it. Recently, I found myself in an intriguing conversation which, upon reflection, wasn’t what it seemed. But isn’t it funny how, even in moments of discomfort or confusion, we can find clarity? I was reminded of the importance of discerning truth and intention. Because at the end of the day, isn’t our time too precious to waste on inauthentic interactions? But it got me thinking. We all have those special bonds with family or close friends and loved ones. Those genuine connections where words flow easily and you don’t have to second guess the intention. Isn’t that where our time is best spent? With my daughter Lumen cuddling beside me or with meaningful dates with my family, it becomes clear who truly matters. We all have the same number of hours in a day, yet our experiences differ vastly. The difference is how and where we invest our time. Moments with my dad, sharing stories and bonding, these are irreplaceable. However, it’s crucial to be wary and aware. And not every shared narrative is genuine, and not every relationship is worth our energy. It’s okay and even essential to prioritize and select where our time goes. And amidst the challenge and chaos and demands of life, I found clarity. I’m dedicating myself to what truly matters. It’s not about stretching thin to accommodate everyone, but about deepening bonds with those who are genuinely resonating with our essence. And while the lesson came wrapped in frustration, I’m genuinely grateful for it. And so as you navigate your journey of life, ask yourself, where is your time going? Are you building connections that uplift, enlighten, and resonate with you? Or are you sifting through layers trying to decipher motives? Let’s strive to invest our time wisely, cherishing the true bonds we have, and fostering relationships that truly and genuinely matter. This, I believe, is the path to a fulfilling life. So until next time, cherish every second and keep building those authentic bridges. So now it’s time for the daily leverage. So where in your world, whether in your life or business, have you been using? I’m just gonna cut to the outro. That is the end of the Daily Leverage. This is Jesse B. Gilmore.
