A Natural Law • is a fundamental principle which governs the cause and effect of human behavior.

1st Natural Law • a successful distributor is willing to do that which an unsuccessful distributor is not willing to do. Time • the occurrence of events in sequence; one after another ~Albert Einstein The Basic Element of Time is: AN EVENT Therefore the Key to Managing Time is: EVENT CONTROL Events over which I have no control Weather Traffic Other people The Control Continuum Adapt THE EFFECTS OF CONDITIONING ---------------------------------------------- 1) there are events we can control but believe that we can’t 2) there are events we cannot control but believe we can ^ No Control ^ Total Control US! Events over which I have control my own actions & moods my attitude my health

A Natural Law: (INNER PEACE) Inner peace is having serenity balance and harmony in our lives achieved through the appropriate control of events.

The Franklin Productivity Tri-quation: Event Control

High Productivity

This element is the easiest to attack!

High Self-Esteem

SELF-ESTEEM ^

EVENT CONTROL ^

Planning is: Predetermining a course of events. Excuses FOR NOT PLANNING: Planning limits freedom Putting out today's fires takes precedence There isn't time to plan Two fallacies of time: 1) We think we're going to get more of it! 2) We think we can save it somehow *What am I presently doing with the magic 3 hours. (can be any 3 hours of our day) Extract 10-15 minutes to devote to formal planning. COMMITMENT "I will spend 10-15 minutes every single day in planning and solitude."

Steps in Effective Planning: 1) Review long-range goals - plan; have a destination 2) Evaluate time VS tasks - No. of tasks to fit in each day 3) Set specific daily goals - know where you're going everyday 4) Anticipate obstacles - what might get in our way 5) Prioritize tasks - most valued tasks first - order of value Prioritizing is identifying the appropriate value and order of events.

LASER THINKING Focus your thinking during the planning & solitude time - ask yourself, "..what really, are my high priorities" and "..what am I going to do about them?" TASKS The Vital Few ------------------A High Value - Vital - MUST Be Done. The trivial Many --------------B Medium Value - Important SHOULD be done ^------------C Low Value - Trivial - COULD be done *Tasks, when assigned with values are given a greater meaning. But Remember: URGENT <not equal to sign> VITAL

A Natural Law: when your behavior is in concert with your values, you will experience optimal event control and have a credible claim to inner peace. Dedicate an entire week for each value and mentally focus on it. Cycle through the values over and over. *WHAT WOULD I CROSS THE 'I' BEAM FOR?" Use the above statement to identify really what your governing values are." Identify your very own values then prioritize them. Spend 5-7 hours Governing Values Are: Those principles and qualities that are of highest priority. VALUES => Long Range Goals The Goal Setting Process Two Natural Laws: 1) We tend to move to your comfort zone 2) To reach a goal we must leave a comfort zone (adventure) NO EFFORT <ME> EFFORT ---------->>>>> ---------->>>>> COMFORT ZONE In 1936 when Social Security was inaugurated today future Historical Time Line: 16:1 3:1 1:1

Birth Death o----------|---------------------------------------------------------------------------o The ^ cement on this side is rock hard. History that cannot be changed. ^The cement on this side is wet! It doesn't harden till we get to that point.

We have total control over one increment of time: RIGHT NOW! Keys to Effective Goal Planning: 1) Goals are supported by your governing values 2) Goals are time dimensioned 3) Goals are clearly and specifically defined 4) You feels that you own the goal. 5) You are realistic Q: AM I WILLING TO PAY THE PRICE? COMFORT ZONES (ALL KINDS OF THEM) Physical, Mental, Financial, Spiritual, Social, Emotional, Psychological When moving into the second block of the pyramid and identifying long range goals you come face to face with the PRICE! *The Intermediate Goal 1st Block { Value: FINANCIAL WELLNESS

{ LONG RANGE GOAL: 2nd Block { It is October 13 2008 and I am financially independent { PRIORITY 3rd Block { { { { { INTERMEDIATE GOALS (Daily Tasks) DEADLINES Life Ins Health Identify 35 tasks that are going Investment Portfolio to be performed between us Savings Plan and that arrow. Budget
