Begin today to apply the "40 Plus Formula" to your work and your career. This formula says that you work 40 hours per week in the United States for survival. If you work only 40 hours per week—if you work only the number of hours that are required of you—then all you will ever do is survive. You will tread water financially. You will make enough to pay your bills and perhaps a little more besides, but you will never get ahead and you will never be successful.
According to the 40 Plus Formula, every hour that you put in over 40 hours on your job, or on yourself, is an investment in your future success.You can tell where you are going to be five years from now by simply looking at how many hours per week you put in on your job. Every hour over 40 that you invest in getting more results for your employer and your customers adds up and contributes to your long-term success.
