“I do not have the time to do this.”
🤔 How many times have you said that to your friends, family, co-worker?
❌Don’t Have time for my children
❌I am too busy to spend time with my partner
❌My weeks go so fast I don’t have time for myself
❌I am too busy
👉🏻 I am sure; you said that a thousand times a week.
👩🚒🔥You feel like you are a Fireman, always pulling down Fire 🔥👩🚒
If you are totally honest to yourself: you are not really “busy”.
Most of the time, we make ourself busy with a lot of little things and are not doing the most important one.
😱 Also, if we are managing a lot of little things we don’t have to face our biggest problems. 😱
☀️ Wouldn’t it be great to have more time during your week to do the things that are the most important to you? ☀️
🤔Why managing your time is so important? 🤔
⏰ We all have a limited time in this world, it is a fact. According to the statistics (Australian Institute of Health and Welfare), a man can expect to live 80 years and a woman about 84 years.
We spend our first 20 years in school 🎓, almost 40 years at work 👷♀️ and left only 20 years for the fun stuff 🤪.
That is only if we have managed our health 🌱 to stay in good shape 🏋️♀️.
So let’s face it, your time is your most valuable asset, and you better manage it well to get the most out of it.
Knowing that, let’s see together how you can improve your time management in your everyday life.
How would your life be if you can handle the thing that matter the most to you?
👉🏻Time to take care of yourself
👉🏻Time with your children
Let me share with you my 3 tips about time management :
**DEFINE. ** 👁
To get more time in your week, you MUST know what you want to get out of this week. Knowing what is the result you want. Get crystal clear on what you want. I personally use the Wheel of Life to manage this part. So i define clearly each week where I want to put my focus, what is my outcome. By doing that, I can be flexible on the way to get the things done. “All Roads leads to Rome” as soon as you know that you want to go to Rome.
- DECIDE. 🏹
Those who have more time are quick to decide. Let me ask you how much time do you spend during a day hesitating? It may be what you are going to eat, or to watch on TV, or what you are going to do this weekend. How often, you end up doing nothing or not doing what you wanted?
MOST OF THE TIME. So decide quick. Start by little thing, select something, stick to your decision, evaluate the result and take another decision.
- PLAN. 🗺
I have been the kind of person who “live with the flow” 🌴.
I was living my life as it comes, without any plan 🗺.
Do you think I get more time for my self? Of course not. I was
overwhelmed,because I could not do what was important to me.
When i Get the opportunity to win a Thermomix TM5, I learnt my best lesson on time management: Plan is time/money saver.
Yes, it might sound obvious, you even see that you do that or maybe you can feel related. If you start to plan your week, month and year, you will be able to do more things and get more time to do it. Because it will be manageable in the long term.
Let’s think for a minute about the immediate consequence of applying those 3 simple rules in your life. 🧐
How would your life positively change if you define what you want, decide to go for it, and plan to do it? 💪🏻
Let’s consider for a moment, what you are actually doing without applying those 3️⃣ tips, is it efficient?
If it something that resonate 👂🏻with, or you feel that is something for you or even you can see 👀 how that can improve either your life or someone else life.
