“Will they know what I have done?”

You feel sensors being attached to your chest, abdomen, and fingers.

Your breathing becomes shallower. Quicker.


A traitorous drop of sweat meanders down your forehead.

“Will they see it?”

Heart beats quickly.


It’s so hot in here.

More sweat joins the charge of betrayal.

“They’ll know I’m lying!”


“Let’s begin.”

Chair screeches.

Light blinds.


There’s nowhere to hide!


We all know this scene.

The protagonist is hooked up to a polygraph in a dark room with flickering lights across from a sinister interrogator.

Will their secret be found out?

TiME Polygraph of Success

“Where you invest your time, money, and energy are the true polygraphs of success.” Michael Bauman

T - Time Polygraph

i - (investment)

M - Money Polygraph

E - Energy Polygraph


In our businesses, we know the value of data.

Especially when it comes to making important decisions.

But do we use objective data when it comes to our personal life?


T- Time Polygraph

Action: Track where you spend your time in 15min intervals for 1-2 weeks.


You don’t have to track all the time (unless you want to).

You just need enough weekly time allocation data to make informed decisions.

Good ol’ pen and paper works fine or a free time tracking app…


3 Free Time Tracking Apps

  1. Clockify

  2. Toggl Track

  3. Hours Tracker

Compare it to your values.

  • How much time do you spend on your health every week (prepping food, exercising, de-stressing)?

  • How much time do you spend with your family or your most important relationships?

  • How much time do you spend learning, growing, and improving?

  • How much time do you spend on social media or watching TV?

  • How much time do you spend on your business?

Follow up Action: Take 15 minutes from an activity that is not supporting your goals and values and move it to one that does.


M - Money Polygraph

Action: Track your budget for a month.


Where do you spend your money?


Compare it to your values.

What percentage of your budget is spent on Health? Relationships? Business? Fun? Saving and Retirement?


Follow up action: How can I automate spending more money on the areas that are important to me?


E - Energy Polygraph

Action: Ask this simple question throughout your day…


“Does this [person, food, activity, task, thought, etc.,] give me energy or deplete my energy?”


Follow up Action: Invest 15 minutes more on an activity that brings you energy this week.
