Re-Claim Your Time
We waste time. Of course there are some people who have mastered the ability to maximize their time, but for the most part we could all do better with managing our time. On the worst level there are those who have allowed others to take, use and abuse their time.
This week I want you to consider reclaiming your time. You should do this if for no other reason than the fact that your time is too precious to waste.
Re-Claiming your time means:
☯️ Stop taking yourself, and allowing people to take you, into debates and arguments about things that don’t really matter.
I use to be a victim of this early in my career as a lawyer. I would wear it as a badge of honor to be able to debate with people on any subject. I was even on the college and law school debate team, but as I have grown Ian’s matured I now realize that my energy is more important than proving that I can argue. The same applies to you.
☯️ Stop spending your most valuable and productive hours on tasks that are not productive or valuable.
Social media has a lot of good elements but it can also be a pit of distraction and destruction. Gossiping at work can have a benefit of spreading information but it can also be a source of toxicity.
Make it a point to complete productive activities before you scroll social media or gossip with others so that you can re-claim your time and live your absolute best life.
☯️ Value your time and make others value your time.
How often does someone totally waste your time, keep you waiting or discount the importance of your presence? What do you normally do when that happens? You likely say, “that’s ok,” but it is not ok. If you refuse to let someone know when your time is not being valued, their behavior will never change. They will continue to disrespect your time. Even more importantly, if you don’t value your own time no one else will.
Today take these steps:
Stop being late, arrive early.
Stop moping around, move with purpose.
Stop de-valuing your time because your time is your life. When your time is up, your life is up. Re-claim your time as the most valuable asset that you have.
Until next time,
