Time, when misused, is a trap and an excuse for not taking action.
Time, when used wisely, is an asset and a gift to yourself and others.
In this blog, I want to talk to you about two concepts.
The first one, which is related to the main subject but also to everything we do in life.
The human brain is designed to adapt and learn.
So keep that in mind.
The second concept is Time.
When we think about time, the way we see the time, the way we understand the time and the way we measure the time, we think seconds, minutes, hours, days, weeks, months, years, even decades and millennia!
But sometimes time, when misused, is a trap and is an excuse.
Not enough time in the day? So when do you know you are misusing time?
When you say to yourself first thing in the morning, when you are doing your morning routine, when you repeat to yourself, you are teaching yourself by saying
“I don’t have time, I don’t have time”.
“I’m too busy I don’t have time”.
“I don’t have time to have breakfast”.
“I don’t have time to everything I need to do during the day”.
“I need more time, I wish my days had more hours”.
“I barely have time for lunch”.
“I don’t have time to do anything”.
What you are doing is you are working against time.
And when you work against the time you fall into a trap.
You go into this vortex of not having time.
Then you use time as an excuse for not taking action.
Because you say to yourself “I don’t have time to do this now, I’ll do it later”.
Then later comes and goes and “I don’t have time now, I’ll do it tomorrow”.
Tomorrow comes and goes so you put it off to next week.
And so on.
So you procrastinate.
Not enough time in the day? When you procrastinate you lose motivation.
And when you lose motivation you get frustrated and that leads to anxiety!
“My god! It’s the middle of January and I’ve done nothing!”.
Or, you can say to yourself first thing in the morning while you’re doing your morning routine: “I have time, I have time to have breakfast, I have time to do what I need to do because I work with time”.
“I have time to organise my day, I have time to prioritise, I have time to delegate whenever possible, I have time to plan my week!”
And most importantly “I have time to achieve my goals, to check that my goals are on track”.
And when you work with time, time becomes an asset.
And you also have to say to yourself “I have the time to go to the theatre or the things I love to do and to see my friends”.
And then time becomes a gift, to yourself and a gift to others.
And I am sure that you all agree with me that the emotions linked to receiving or giving a gift are those of joy, satisfaction and excitement.
So you have time when you work with Time!
Now if at this point in time you feel you are trapped in time or you want to know more about this or you want to ask more questions about Time, you know what to do.
