86,400 seconds is not enough TIME!

We all have 24 hours in a day or 86,400seconds in one day, however so often I hear people claim they have less time than others. So why do we claim we do not have enough time? How is it possible some people believe they do not have enough time?

Time is a perception, we all have the same amount of time in a day, however we do not all use that amount of time the same. Some of us jam pack our day full of on purpose activities, others of us spend time in procrastination, overwhelm or doubling up on activities. Everything other than on purpose activities is a distraction and not utilizing time well. Even rest can be an on purpose activity.

Part of using time well, is to understand your values. So what is important to you, I would suggest that if something was really really important to you, then you would find the time, if not then you will not find the time. No matter what your words say, your actions reflect this truth.

In order to claim time back for yourself and use time well, activities like procrastination and overwhelm need to be eliminated or reduced. Often we can procrastinate if we do not feel we know how to do an activity or we do not really want to do it. The best way to stop procrastination is to never let activities build up. If it can be done at the time then that is when it needs to be done. This can be as simple as putting the dish in the dishwasher after you have finished with it rather than on the bench for you to come back to at a later time.

The other way to move forward with time is to get educated and skilled. If you feel you are unsure how to complete a task seek out support or education, get the skills or find the skills so that you can move forward. Stagnancy wastes time.

We all have the same amount of time. Are you willing to use it more efficiently and more on purpose, never let lack of time be your excuse for not achieving what you truly dream of.
