9 Millionaire Success Habits That Will Inspire Your Life
We all know that the most precious resource in life is time. Once lost, you can never rewind the clock. For entrepreneurs, this pressure is enhanced.
Having an idea and a vision for a business requires courage. Launching that business in a world where many are satisfied with their comfort zones requires guts. Once you’ve launched the business, the goal is to be consistent.
Success is directly related to consistency. Consistency is the direct result of how you manage your time.
Here are 10 awesome time management books that have been recommended by successful entrepreneurs.
1. The 4-Hour Workweek by Tim Ferriss
This is an awesome resource that jolts everything you’ve ever learned about the time needed to build a successful career. Personally, I was shell-shocked when I first heard of a “4-hour workweek.” At the time, I could hardly get through the typical 9-5.
I read the book and my life has never been the same. I’ve managed to escape the rate race, work less hours, and live life to the fullest.
Joel Bomgar, founder and CEO of Bomgar, had the following to say about the book:
“The productivity principles and philosophy of productivity and effectiveness encompassed in [The 4-Hour Work Week] are powerful. I read it a few years back and it was one of the most life-transforming books I’ve ever read.”
2. Rich Dad, Poor Dad by Robert T. Kiyosaki
This is another fantastic resource that shifts your paradigm and mindset. This book taught me that income-generating assets usually provide healthier bottom-line results than even the best of traditional jobs. This might not always mean millions of dollars in your bank account, but it may give you that priceless time freedom.
Dane Maxwell, founder of an incredible resource called The Foundation – a community of over 60,000 entrepreneurs – had this to say:
“It all started when I read the book Rich Dad, Poor Dad. I’m not a typically really super intelligent guy so I really appreciated the simplistic way that Rich Dad, Poor Dad explained financial wealth. He talked about passive income and not exchanging time for money.”
3. No B.S. Time Management For Entrepreneurs by Dan Kennedy
Being an entrepreneur is tough. You’ve got to set some serious targets upfront. You might not achieve them all, but you have to gun for them.
This book gives you three incredibly powerful tips and targets:
- Self-discipline is the magic power that makes you unstoppable
- Avoid the time vampires that want to suck you dry
- As an entrepreneur, your time is worth $340 per hour
It is impossible to start as $340-per-hour entrepreneur. But, it should certainly be your target as you grow.
Paul Gallipeau, Digital Marketing entrepreneur, has this as one of his highly recommended reads.
4. In Praise of Slowness by Carl Honore
We live in an unnecessarily fast-paced world. In Praise of Slowness advocates for the reversal of a fast-forward mentality and lifestyle. It entrenches a culture revolution against the notion that faster is always better.
For any entrepreneur, this is a must-read.
There are too many opportunities out there. There are opportunities within opportunities. In the midst of all these opportunities, you need to slow down and have a clearly defined vision that will help you avoid growing into a chaotic entrepreneur.
This is a resource highly recommended by Joe Griffin, co-founder of iAcquire.
