Get Your Roofing Sales Time Back

Time is Profit, Right?

The most powerful button on your keyboard is that DELETE key.

With one tiny push, you can instantly buy back precious moments of your own time.

Push delete twice to feel a surge of freedom. Push it three times in a row… and mountains will move out of your way.

I’m not just talking about your email here folks…

Like your inbox, there’s an unlimited stream of mass communication desperately fighting for your limited time, attention and affection.

These messages come from everywhere… co-workers, neighbors, family, friends, television, telephone, mail, twitter, facebook… the list is endless.

They all want something from you.

Ultimately, most of them don’t really want your time… they don’t want your attention… heck, they could care less about your affection. Those are just covert war operations to get what they’re really after…


They either want your money or they want you to help them make money or save money. Actually, the later scenario is even worse because that means they want you to spend your time helping them make or save money… “Time is Money!”

Guard your time and you’ll guard your life. If you won’t accurately value what the precious moments of your life are worth, nobody else will value your time either.

The less you value your time, the less valuable your time becomes. Time is an asset like gold… it is valuable because it is rare and difficult to acquire.

Imagine if tomorrow it was magically discovered that you could pour hot water on cold rocks and they would turn to solid gold… what would gold be worth then? That’s right, almost nothing.


Which is exactly what you’re worth right now if you let just anybody waltz into your life… or your inbox… and rob your time like a petty thief swiping quarters from the ash tray of an unlocked car.

It is time to give yourself a promotion. Put your money and your time back in your pocket and spend it on what’s really important in life. Hit “Delete” and take a generous raise in pay… compliments of yourself. You deserve it.

Granted, you’ve just spent the last 5 minutes of your life figuring out what “delete, delete, delete” meant… you should know it took me 60 minutes to write it.

I hope it was time well spent.


p.s. Obviously, there are some things in life that are worth any price you can pay including your time, attention and affection. Figuring out the difference in what is valuable and what isn’t is what separates the wise man from the fool. Speaking of things that are valuable, check out the all-new 101 Sales Tips Newsletter.
