Do You Control Time or Does It Control You?
So many of us say… “I don’t have time for that”; “if only I had more time”; “there’s not enough hours in a day to get it done”; etc…
We all have the same 24 hrs. It is just a matter of how we choose to spend them! Many of us are rushing from one meeting to the next. Meetings run over and you’re late for the next one… it seems you can never catch up.
When you take “time” to break down your typical day to see how much energy you are spending on things that are not aligned with your values, or not serving a purpose for you to get your job done, or just not what you really want to be spending time doing, ask yourself: “how is this serving me”? “How does doing this support my purpose”?
When you consciously challenge how you are spending your precious time, you will soon discover that you have a choice each and every moment of each and every day in how you spend it. You can choose to hit the snooze button 4 times and then feel rushed throughout the day as you are constantly running behind. You can choose to stay up an extra hour to watch a TV program that really wasn’t that good after all. You can choose to professionally stop a meeting on time if it is not finished and reschedule more time to accomplish whatever wasn’t done in the allotted time. As you can see… the word “time” appears constantly in our vocabulary and our days.
YOU have the power to decide each and every moment how you want to spend your time… use it wisely!!
