So, how much time have you wasted?
For me, the answer is… too much.
Recently, Bill Wallace, the leader of Success North Dallas, told me of a simple formula he follows. He calls it his “Return On Time.” (Some call this “ROTI” – “Return on Time Invested.”
He says that he wants to attend events with a high “Return On Time” value. He follows his own 1-10 scale, and any event that is low on his scale is not a good “Return On (His) Time.”
Now, the scale can be based on quite a few factors. When you go to an event do you:
- meet interesting people?
- have useful conversations?
- hear good content?
or, at least…
- eat good food?
One reason I liked this conversation is that he told me that our First Friday Book Synopsis is always a high value “Return On Time” event for him. I think it’s an event that meets such an exacting standard — but, I admit, I’m biased.
I can say that his monthly event at Success North Dallas is also a high value “Return on Time” for me, when I am able to attend.
So… what about you? Do you choose events with a high “Return on Time” value?
