#248: The Invaluable Investment of Time


time investment

As leaders, we are compelled to serve others. We always pour personal investments into other people. That said, however, we must remember we cannot give what we do not have, and serving while on empty creates incredible challenges for us personally. Leadership burnout is a real problem!

Whether you’re the CEO, a pastor, or a solo-preneur, taking care of YOU is paramount to the success of your leadership calling. But how can you make sure your account stays full? Why should Me-Time and We-Time be a priority in your life?

Today, we’re talking about The Invaluable Investment Of Time.

The Root

Most leaders find themselves working non-stop, always engaged in some way. No doubt several have experienced high levels of success due to this drive, but at what cost?

How many people arrive at the pinnacle of their career only to look back on their life and see a trail of carnage, especially of relationships lost along the way?

The 21st century culture is so success/results driven, we often sacrifice the things that matter the most on the altar of status or accolade.

We invest in the wrong things for the wrong reasons, forgetting how important it is to invest in ourselves, and those we love.

10 Reasons Why “Me” Time & “We” Time Are Vitally Important:

  1. Rest
  2. Recovery
  3. Regained Perspective
  4. Restored Hope
  5. Renewed Vision
  6. Recreation
  7. Relationship Triage
  8. Relationship Deposits
  9. Growth & Development
  10. Rediscover Your Why

  • Schedule your time away.
  • Not only will your work survive without you for a few days, but you’ll be better (and so might those around you) after some time separated from it!
  • Is it worth it to sacrifice your relationships for building your business?

1.  Strategic Influencers Mastermind

We have recently expanded for a few openings in our next-level mastermind group for Strategic Influencers just like YOU. The purpose of this group is to connect emerging leaders for sharing ideas, purposeful collaboration, relational and business accountability, and ultimately, each member realizing “NEXT-LEVEL PERFORMANCE!”

This is not a marketing effort to get people into a course. In fact, this is not a course and it is not coaching. I’m looking to grow my businesses in a co-operative environment and also share my knowledge and experience with those who are ready to take their life and their leadership to the next level.

For more information on this incredible opportunity, go to …


To apply for membership with the Strategic Influencers Mastermind Group, please click the link below, and you will be directed to an online application. Once you’ve completed the application, someone from our office will contact you to set up a short phone interview. Our desire is to serve you with excellence. The application process ensures you have all of your questions answered, and you and I are confident this group is a good fit for all involved. We look forward to hearing from you soon.
