How Are You Viewing Your Time?

In working with and coaching people across the country, one of the top requests we continually receive is how we can help people manage their time better.

Many people think of their time management skills in relationship to their time organization device. Yes? your calendar, Outlook, or PDA can be an extremely valuable tool in helping you to organize your time, but those things are not your time, nor do they have any power to determine where you use your time.

Time Management is a mindset. It is the way you look at and value the hours and minutes of each day. When you hold onto the mindset that there is a shortage of time, that it is scarce? that is what it becomes. When you consciously choose to look at your time in a state of abundance, it becomes abundant. Your power to manifest your reality now and will always be one of the greatest influences in your experience.

Who determines where you spend your time? You do. Who determines how you view your time? You do. Breaking old patterns can certainly be challenging and I know that you have the power to do so.

While your time is a limited commodity, it is not a scarce one.

None of your other commodities regenerate themselves. If lose your money, it is gone until you earn it again. If you ruin a friendship, they aren't guaranteed to return. When you health is compromised, it takes an incredible effort to restore it. When you waste your time you lose the opportunity alone, not its future value. What other commodity can you completely waste or abuse and wake up the next morning with a replenished supply?

This is not to say your time isn't precious. I would agree 100% that your time is one of your most valued resources. That doesn't mean it has to be limited. Our greatest intangible resources are never limited - they just require focused energy to be harnessed.

My best advice is to ask yourself what is the source of your mindset about your time. When did you first start feeling overwhelmed? What actions could you take TODAY to start creating positive momentum? What are your priorities? When is the last time you created a TO DON'T list? That's right, a list all the things you need to STOP doing to waste your precious day and get you off track.

Have fun, take control of your life, and?
