A lot of people are stressed over time. They are running around saying, “I don’t have enough time to do xyz.” They feel like the sand is running out of the hour glass and they are rushing before the sane runs out.
It feels like there is never enough time, but we all have the same amount of time in a day. While you are feeling that there isn’t enough time you are missing something special about life.
Beneath the pile of unfinished tasks you have all the time in the world. There is nothing but time. What you are really upset about is the trip you mind is playing on you.
You think you are upset because a project isn’t done, but really it is the loop your thinking and the pressure you are putting on yourself. People think they need time management, but time can’t be managed. Only people can be managed. It is their behavior or habits that need managing. The problem is having the courage to say ‘no’ to the things that distract you. The secret is to slow down and focus fully on one thing and only that one thing until it is done.
What if you could make each and every day a masterpiece? What would your day look like? Most people don’t create their day like a masterpiece. They either can’t decide what to do or what they want their day to look like. The reason why is because they are reacting to their fears, worries or concerns. They are busy thinking a thought that doesn’t support them such as I’m not good enough, I always run late, I’m not worthy, my boss doesn’t like me. We are trained in childhood to react to others people’s moods, fears and behavior.
First we try to please the other person. Then we react to their response in a negative doubting way. We feel that everyone else is in charge of our life except us. If you had the courage to create a day in the life of your dreams what would you create? If you had that just the way you wanted it. What’s in the way of having it now?
If you were creating your day the way you want. How would you create it? Think of yourself as Van Gogh painting a masterpiece. What do you want to create? Do you want a day that just flows with ease and happiness? Do you want to sleep in or have peace and acceptance? Do you want to get along with everyone and make a lot of money?
Design your day to your personality and your wants. Then be totally committed to producing a great outcome. My son who is a night owl starts his college classes about the time most people are having lunch. He told me he does not like to get up early and he would miss most of his morning classes. He chooses to start later and take evening classes. I thought for a young adult he was pretty smart for knowing what works for him.
When you create a day and a system for yourself you are guaranteeing your success. Then you too will be creating a day that is a masterpiece. The secret is to find a way to express it every day. How will you create your day today?
