Thomas Edison once said, “Time is really the only capital that any human being has, and the only thing we can’t afford to lose.” Do you feel limited by your inability to master your time?
Most of us are spinning several plates at the same, and most of the time these plates have “responsibilities” or “to do’s” written all over them. After all is said and done, how much of your day is left for you? For your heart’s desire? For self-care? For your self-expression? For what matters most to you? We hardly have time to meet our responsibilities; let alone honor any of the above. Now how about adding in there how to fulfill your heart’s true desire – or doing something you really love and crushing it?
Truth is that what matters most to us, goes to the bottom of the list because we feel that there’s just not enough time for it. Busy moms taking care of their families, rarely have time to take care of themselves. But what if you knew how to utilize and manage your time in a way that is most productive and effective so that you can actually fit it all in? In a way, where you could invest in yourself, so that you can offer even more than you thought you could? From the outside it looks like you’ve expanded time, but what you’ve actually done is used the time that you have in a way that maximizes it. And when you’ve maximized your time, you realize that you enjoy your day, and your life exactly as you want – every day.
During a time in our world where time is the most valued commodity, we see less connection to what matters most to us. We slip further and further away, leaving us feeling unfulfilled or as if we’re missing something, but not quite sure why we’re feeling this way. Some of us are even depleted by the end of our day. We want to be highly productive, feel accomplished at the end of each day, and even have spare time.
Start by figuring out what you want to be busy about, so that you are more focused, time efficient, and figure out how to make the best use of your time. What is one way to begin managing your time wisely, so that you can close the gap from where you are and where you want to be in your life? “The bad news is that time flies. The good news is you’re the pilot.” – Michael Altshuler
