A common quote that goes around a few times a year is:
We all have the same 24-hours in the day.
It’s meant to be motivating to point out that you have the same number of hours each day as very successful people like Oprah, Tony Robbins, Beyonce, or the person you most admire in life or business.
It can be motivating.
It can also be misleading.
This leads to my question: Do we really all have the same 24-hours in a day?
People like Oprah or Beyonce have help. They hire people to help them accomplish more each day. There are assistants, nannies, and other employees that help them daily.
This means that they have more time because their employees are doing some tasks and projects for them.
That’s great for them! But don’t set expectations for yourself based on their success or what you perceive they accomplish.
Instead, set your expectations for yourself based on where you are and what you can accomplish.
