Make Time No Longer Your Enemy

Try to imagine a life without having to keeping watching the clock. At the moment everything you probably do is dependent on time. You wake up to your alarm clock, you drive to work keeping your eye on the dashboard clock, you set off home when the clock on the wall in your office or factory hits a certain time. Everything you do seems scheduled around time.

Most people seem to find that time appears to be their biggest enemy. The clock is ticking whether you like it or not. Time can never stop. Every second, minute, hour, day, week, month, year seems to count.

The big problem is, allowing yourself to think like this, you are giving control over your day to time. You are surrendering to the power of time and you simply I assure you can’t win.

Your life revolves around time. One of the biggest areas of personal development that people explore is how to improve their time management.

There are certain constants that there is nothing anyone can do to change them. There are 24 hours in a day. With only 60 minutes in an hour that means you have 1440 minutes each day. So the issue that most people are looking for answers to is how to best spend these minutes.

Some people try to pack in as much activity as they possibly can in to these minutes. They are always looking for ways to get more done.  No matter what they seem to do they end each night looking back with dissatisfaction with what they’ve achieved.

My experience having once upon a time been one of those who worked hard and crammed in as much as I could do every single day yet never seemed satisfied, shows me how much things have changed since I began following a path where I do the things that I love.

Here is what I learn. If you are doing something that doesn’t fulfil you, then a minute can seem like an eternity. Alternatively when you love what you’re doing and you are totally engrossed in it, time just flies by. When you are spending time doing things that really matter to you time just doesn’t seem to matter.

From the moment I am awake the day seems to fly by where my time is spent doing the things I love to do. An hour may pass by but it only seems to be a minute. Of course by the end of the day although I always seem to get so much done, there is more still to do. That will never change.  There will always be jobs yet to be done, thoughts to be worked out and emails to be sent but it just means I have more to look forward to tomorrow.

I don’t have to be held accountable for my use of time, not even to myself. When you are doing things you love why would you waste time or throw away the opportunity on focusing on the things that you enjoy doing. That would simply be nonsensical.

You can take steps towards all your goals every day. When these goals are driven by passion it’s so easy to find the time. People believe I’m a workaholic, which I suppose I am, but this is because I love every minute of the work I’m doing. To write, to coach, to build life changing programs and shops that will sell amazing products , making the difference, well who wouldn’t want to work and work and work. But I still find the time to exercise, now I’m well again, spend time with those I love, and do other things I enjoy.

I know I can’t achieve everything in one day. After all isn’t the saying Rome wasn’t built in a day. I don’t have to do everything all at once – I just have to stay in control and take one step every day.

What I know every morning when I set out on my journey for the day is that I have much to do, and a great deal that I want to achieve. I focus on doing the things I do well, to the best of my ability.

I know my time is valuable, and so is my life. Moving forward in a passionate way is how we all need to be using our time. Whatever you do with your life, Making the best use of your time just means you are working on things that you love to do. You are no longer just working, but you’re actually doing something that matters in your eyes.

You see every one of you already knows how to get the most out of the time available to you. You can always find time for the things you like to do, where you never seem to find the time for those things you don’t enjoy.

That is why I think time management is such a popular area with people constantly looking for answers. It attempts to teach people how to arrange and control the time they spend.  You find solutions that are offered, try to put them into practice for your life but find they don’t seem to be able to get control over your workload, or of equal importance they don’t help you established a balanced way of living.

I’ve found the answer for me to time management. When you do the work you love spending your time doing what matters to you time no longer becomes an issue in your life.  Engaging in activities that you care about, you not only don’t know where time goes, you feel joy, awe, and inspiration through every movement of the hands on the clock.

My belief is live for what you love to do and do what you love! That makes use of the power within you. When you do you feel totally connected with a never-stop, relentless, on-going powerful fuel that ensures you make the best use of every second you have.

What do you love to do? Find out and see time no longer be your enemy.
