Do you say to yourself – I’m too busy?
“I’m too busy!” Do you say that to yourself?
How do you manage your time? Are you managing it in line with your purpose?
In this week’s video we consider these questions. Watch the video and think about what beliefs you have about time and whether these beliefs aligned to your purpose.
I was recently in a business meeting and someone was giving a talk on how we manage time, who we are and how that relates to it.
He had had a stroke when he was younger and he remembered lying in his hospital bed looking at a painting of three sheep on top of a mountain. He thought to himself, “Before I had this stroke I would have said I’ve got no time to paint that picture but now I’ve had the stroke I’ve plenty for time and yet I can’t do it.”
He is fully recovered now, but he was saying that time and life are a little like art. Sometimes your perceptions about time are hardwired into your thoughts. For example, when we were young, how did our parents and teachers manage time? These perceptions are hardwired into our thoughts and we have these beliefs such as “I’m too busy,” or maybe “I’ve got to use my time effectively,”
I’ve done lots of things in the last 48 hours. I’ve finished a Master Practitioner Course, I’ve written five blogs, I’ve had several meetings. I could probably say “I’m too busy.” or someone may say it to me. However I think I’m managing my time according to my purpose. If you are managing your time according to your purpose and you are enjoying what you do then you can feel quite time rich and that you have lots of time.
It’s just a little prescription for you to think about how you manage time and whether you managing it in line with your purpose or not.
