631. Your gains are in the GAPS

631. Your gains are in the GAPS

“Going onto a movie set is like something you’ve never seen,” said Jay Shetty to his good friend & actor Will Smith. “It’s pressure packed with so many moving parts.  Everyone has to be in position, remember their lines, & get the shot before the sun goes down.”

 

“I knew you were committed to personal growth when I’d see you reading in the gaps between the scenes.”

 

An actor like Smith could’ve done anything he wanted to do...after all, he’d arrived & one of the biggest actors in the world. Yet with millions in the bank, instead of laying up and getting pampered, Will Smith prepared in the GAPS.

 

Your gain is in your GAPS. You probably don’t notice it because it’s the “only’s.” It’s only 5 minutes...7 minutes... 3 minutes...or 1/2 hour before your next event. But those “only’s” just equated to 45 minutes that you could’ve gained in expertise.

 

I used to think I needed to take a week off from work to work on things that I just didn’t “have time” to get to during a normal work week only to waste it & go back to work frustrated.

 

Your gain is in your GAPS. Where do you want to be in the future? Preload a video, ebook, blog, or podcast (or all) that have everything to do with the direction you want to go and GAP IT UP with knowledge.

 

What’s in your GAP?

 

Mind your gaps & you’ll make your future.
