It’s not about tips, tricks or shortcuts. It’s about asking the right questions.
For example, if you ask someone “when do you read books?” The response might be. “I don’t have the time.” “When do you relax/rest?” “I don’t have the time” “When do you volunteer?” “I don’t have the time”
Honestly, no one has a time problem! We only have a priority problem.
In my previous article, I shared on how you can effectively manage time and the whole idea was the fact that you need to redefine time and your perception of time.
Think about it this way, will there ever be a moment you will have just enough time to do everything important to you in all areas of your life including your health, personal development, your spiritual life, family, career and business?
How time is recorded hasn’t changed for hundreds of years. 60 seconds still is a minute, 24 hours is still what makes a day and 12 calendar months are still what records the passing and birthing of a new year.
The measure of time has not changed and so for you to truly manage time, you really need to start asking the right question.
When next someone asks you, “when do you read books” or “when do you relax/rest”, instead of quickly responding, “I don’t have the time” OR asking “when do I have the time?” Rather ask, “Is it worth my life?”
Remember, time is about meaning, purpose and essence.
Time is life!
So when you ask “Is it worth my time?” What you are really asking is “is it worth my life?”
Measure your activities in time with what is important to you and you will be on your way to truly mastering how time can be successfully managed.
