Adding Up Your Time: 20,000 Days and Counting with Robert Smith

This week I had the chance to chat with Robert Smith about his new book 20,000 Days and Counting.

In it, Robert talks about being grateful for each and every day that we have, and living an intentional life.

You time is a gift, how many days have you had?

Counting Up Your Days

I love Robert’s idea of counting our days upwards.

Too often we talk about have much time we have left, rather than how much we have had. (Kind of a glass half empty look at our lives…)

Instead, you should be grateful for all of the time you have had, thus far.

So, how many days you’ve had? The answer may surprise you.

(Hint: You can get your own count by using the calculator on Robert’s site.)

Here are just a few of the topics that Robert and I discuss in this week’s video interview:

Motivation is a Myth

“Increase your productivity, and the motivation will follow.”

Making Decisions and Taking Action

“You only have two choices: yes or no.”

What We Can Get Done

“We have an amazing ability to overestimate what we can do in the next five years and totally underestimate what we can do in the next fifteen minutes.”

Adding Up Your Time

I really enjoyed Robert’s book. It is a quick read and you can get it traditional format or eBook.

Get 20,000 Days and Counting via Amazon.

  1. Craig – Great interview! Robert is a bundle of energy, isn’t he?

    I found his website and bought his book several weeks ago. I think EVERYONE should read it.

    One (there are many more) of my favorite lines in the book is this one: “Cherish every second, every minute, every moment. Seize them all — to accomplish, to celebrate, to act.”

    Powerful stuff. Thanks again for sharing the interview.
