Being A Wise Jedi Master About Your Time

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty 0575737

Wise TimeI have always been fascinating with handling time. Often I conclude any of trying to "control" it is a futile endeavor.

YET, each day of our life whether we think a day goes by slow like in our younger years or a YEAR "zooms" by in our later years it is still the SAME 24 hours.

We truly do not SAVE time but leverage it. Like a dishwasher allows you to do SOMETHING ELSE while the dishes are being cleaned. OR if you are a real estate agent MULTIPLE listings on the market are there for sale.

Products as inventory while you are off to the next business deal.

Time is best expressed as SPENT. Chalk up in your day say 8 hours for sleep and hygiene. Some time for meals too. You start adding up what might be left and you wonder how ever you can WASTE so much of it and a day can get away from you. Well it comes to some foresight and beginning with the end in mind of WHAT you want to do, accomplish, relax, serve, work, etc. REALIZE if you are in school, in an employer job, and not self-employed, retired, out of work, IF you have to ask someone for permission say for time for a dentist appointment, THAT part of your time is CONTROLLED by another. Just something to consider.

BEST way to optimize what YOU are doing with your time is look at categories to hack away (subtract from) or enhance (ADD MORE TIME TO).

These broad catergories would include:

  • Travel (what trips do you need or could avoid or could consolidate?)
  • People (keep people who have no time for you out, cherish the meaningful people)
  • People part 2 (who are you taking care of? family, friends, strangers. They need you)
  • Media (how much time on TV, social media-Facebook, web, radio, reading, music)
  • Peace and quiet (where is your meditation time?)
  • Work (making a living, or pursuing a passion)
  • Meetings (probably the thing I kill off the most, so many even webinars are a waste)
  • Chores (time to go to Home Depot for your vincas, dig up the weeds, paint the shutters)
  • Exercise (you will die earlier than you think if this is not part of your time pie chart)
  • Education (throughout your life, never let your brain rot. Grandma Moses became a painter)
  • Service (what do you do outside yourself, give back)

Be extremely hard on yourself with your choices on spending your time. Your happiness is your responsibility. Become a better WISE JEDI MASTER of spending it!! Takes practice, but keep at it each day thinking of categories.

I think time may be wasted, spent wisely or invested in productive activities that return future benefits.

Vincas?  I think about so many people that spent time writing letters and notes wondering where they got the time...but, look at us on social media.  Not much changes.  Enjoy  your day Gary Woltal
