Memories make you sentimental, experiences make you smart.
— Amit Kalantri

If there's one thing I've learned in the last 53 days is that time has dictated my every step. Time makes slaves of us all and we can't change its pace. That's a reality everyone should accept. However, there's opportunity everywhere and I intend to be more clever than time from this point on. Yes, I'm going to cheat time.

Until we build a time machine, time will always be linear. Since time is steadily paced, then it makes it fairly easy to guess where you will be at in one month's time. My goal this month is to exercise my marketing strategy and start pushing my business into the market place. My goal for the following month is to begin booking clients. To cheat time, I would love to achieve both goals in one month. How do I do that? Recognize weaknesses, then delegate.

For me, a huge weakness is the need to do more things at once. I've recognized it and I've accepted it. I may want to do it all, but I simply can't. I need help. I need to delegate my tasks to willing friends and family so multiple goals can be achieved in a shorter timespan. That's how you cheat time.

This week, I'm going to figure out those necessary tasks and assemble my Avengers to help me achieve those goals. Be clever because there's work to be done.
