Respect Other People’s Time – The Second Doer Leverage Strategy

If you agree with me that leverage creates wealth, then we need to talk seriously about how to respect other people’s time.

Meanwhile, I want to welcome you to the Pat VC channel where obscurity doesn’t exist.

Today’s topic is part of the wealth stage called Learn To Leverage Other Skills

In fact,

during my transformation time abroad, I’ve been obsessed with finding strategies for building wealth and discovering the prosperity of well-being.

That’s why I created the 7 Wealth Stages.

And these stages guide you toward Financial Well-being a.k.a Holistic Wealth. 

Now, in my initial video within the Learn To Leverage Other Skills stage, I mentioned, I would create a series of videos about Doer’s Leverage Strategies. 

To remind you, the first Doer Leverage Strategy is Other People’s Experience.

And in today’s second leverage strategy, I want to talk, especially to Doers like you, who commit to creating wealth

Introduction To Respect Other People’s Time

Pat VC - True wealth is holistic wealth - Respect other peoples time

Remember this: 

True wealth is holistic wealth.

It is a generational wealth and legacy. 

“Financial Well-being and Holistic Wealth is an attainable goal that can be built through the 7 Wealth Stages.”

And when I keep studying successful people in-depth, there is always a common pattern when it comes to leverage strategies.

Most importantly, they prioritize:

But before we begin,

I respect your time watching this video.

Because in this way, you will receive weekly one proven strategy within the seven wealth stages of life.

With this purpose in mind, let’s talk about respecting other people’s time.

Why Is It Important To Respect Time?

At first, I want to emphasize something very crucial.

Since last year, I can’t really stress more how important this is for me, so do for you. 

What I mean is to respect the value of your time.

And by the same token also other people’s time. 

So why is it important?

“Because time is one thing, just one of the rarest things you can’t reverse once it’s gone.”
Pat VC - Time is one of the rarest things you can't reverse once it's gone - Respect other peoples time

And as soon as you realize it, and start using your time wisely, it is the utmost ingredient that is a reflection of your:

  • well-being,
  • wealth,
  • happiness,
  • and overall of your holistic wealth in your life.

And I want you to realize that there is no better moment being mindful than right here and right now.

Just think about it for a moment. 

When you wake up, these are precious minutes of embracing yourself and appreciating the time of your existence. 

And this is the right time to appreciate and respect other people’s time in helping you build your business, your investment.

Or respect deeply your:

  • wife,
  • husband,
  • close family members,
  • and inner circle of your friends.

Would you agree?

Isn’t it truthful?

Remember the following Doer’s affirmation:

“Treat other people’s time the way you want to treat yours.”

Sounds rational?


Because now, it leads me to the part about how to leverage other people’s time effectively. 

Leverage Other People’s Time

Respect other peoples time and leverage other people's time

Listen, your key to success is to focus on:

  1. urgent;
  2. and important tasks. 

In the second place eliminate not urgent and unimportant tasks.

What I mean by that is this… 

If you don’t have enough time or you are drained of doing some tasks due to a lack of skills, the solution is to delegate it to someone else.

And that’s the power of leverage, which is Respecting Other People’s Time.

But next to that, you also need to understand what it means to waste other people’s time.

What Does It Mean To Waste Someone’s Time?

It includes:

  • unnecessary calls,
  • useless WhatsApp messaging,
  • gossip in an office…

Or needless meetings that lead to no execution, which is completely a waste of time.

Let me share with you a few examples of wasting someone’s time.

Top-notch Doctors 

They charge fees when you don’t show up to your set appointment. 

But they are absolutely right because of their valuable time.

Unfortunately, it seems to me that the majority of poor and middle-class people don’t get it. 

In other words… 

“The majority of poor and middle-class don’t respect other people’s time.

Or another example… 

Decision-Making Meetings

If you were late or missed an influential business meeting, which could have devastating consequences without your presence. 

Think about this impact for a moment…

On the positive side, meetings or phone calls that keep projects rolling forward, are the right use of time.

Or appointments that are related to your financial well-being and holistic wealth.


“When you are a true Doer or you transition to becoming one of them, to be always prepared for a meeting or on time is vital for wealthy people.

Would you agree?

Because it boosts your:

  • credibility,
  • reputation,
  • and trust.

Simply said, it shows that you respect other people’s time.

Respecting other people's time boosts your credibility reputation and trust

Now, let me give you my example. 

Pat VC Team Organization

At Pat VC, we deeply respect other people’s time in our team, which currently consists of two people. 

  • Besides me, the crucial part of our team members is a creative lead editor who stands behind all those graphics and titles.
  • And the next one is a video editor who cuts out and trims all making mistakes and redundancies. 

Sooner or later, we are going to add another team member who will promote our videos and blog posts.

In addition, Pat VC includes other businesses, such as Pat VC Real Estate.

And openly, I mentioned other team members in the video Real Estate Investing 101 book review.

“In truth, right here and right now, I have to say a really big Thank You to all the members of the Pat VC team.

That being said, 

as you can see, we leverage and respect other people’s time and we build long-term relationships first. I treat them like a precious gem in order to reinforce our partnership. 

So as a Doer and Leader, you need to set the bar so others follow the process.

Pat VC - Success path from Dreamer to high Achiever

And one more thing, 

while talking about respecting other people’s time, the next big effort was starting a business with a friend I met two years ago. 

Listen, it took two years to synergize our thoughts.

Because we’ve respected other people’s time. 

I respected his time, and he respected mine to understand our passion and the direction of building something meaningful that would help countless people. 

Time To Take Action And Respect Other People’s Time

To conclude this video,

even if you don’t realize it, sometimes you disrespect other people’s time.

Or in a worse scenario, you waste yours and their time. 

Unlearn it and don’t repeat this mistake over and over again. 

If you should remember just one thing from this video, get this.

“The key is to allocate your precious time only to the things that empower you right now. Always remember the time value. How precious it is to keep going just with the right things that are in your control.
Pat VC - The key is to allocate your precious time only to the things that empower you right now

So first, to help you organize your direction, I recommend reading or watching a video called How To Build Self-Discipline.

Second, I want you to implement into your daily schedule the Eisenhower Matrix.

This strategy will help you organize your tasks and divide them into four boxes that are:

  • urgent,
  • important,
  • not urgent,
  • and unimportant.

And once you have done it, come back to this blog post and leave us a comment below to prove you are a true Doer that is hungry to grow and thrive. 

Because when you understand the eternity of holistic wealth and its legacy, you will force yourself to escape your comfort zone. 

For that reason, I created the 7 Wealth Stages that help you overcome scarcity and recondition you to prosperity.

And by prosperity I mean Holistic Wealth.
