Time. Such a fun topic.
They say that time is relative, it was only created by humans in order for us to compartmentalize our lives. True. However, it certainly helps when you have a job to do, or you live day to day by the rise and set of the sun. And no matter who you are, we all have the same amount of time as everyone else. Yet for some reason some of us can accomplish so much more within a day than others. Why?
Here are my thoughts on this…
What drives you each day? What is your purpose in life and how do you express that on a consistent daily basis?
What gets you up in the morning? Do you feel forced to be motivated sometimes? Of course nobody is perfect, however having a bit of motivation can be a driving factor when it comes to achieving goals or your purpose.
Are you a focused person? Sometimes I find myself getting distracted by my phone, or things to do around the house when I should actually be working. Which is why a lot of the times my phone is on silent.
There is always a time to relax, and a time to take action. Life can’t always be go go go, but do you find motivation lacking and laziness kicking in?
What in your life is of urgency and what can be moved to another date and time. Do you write down a to do list and adjust it based on priority, while focusing on a specific task until achieved?
6. Mental Strain and Overwhelm.
How are you when it comes to stress and overwhelm? Are you easily influenced by other people’s energy? Do you let the little things bother you, or are you pretty chill and easy going?
What do you use to guide you on your life’s journey? Do you ask for help when needed, or do you try to do it all on your own?
The list above is a number of factors, which effect our time and how we utilize it. So how to overcome the clock on the wall? Start by becoming aware of what you do in a day. Keep track on a daily basis how your day was spent, and whether it was full of intention and purpose. Write down your ideal perfect day in work and play, and shift things to gradually emulate how you want your life to be.
Life is what you make it, so make the best of it.
