The way you use your time is the way you live your life.
Posted on May 1, 2014, under Time After Time.
But we get there eventually – it’s just that change is never linear … and it takes time! So as we move through today’s change and start a brand new month, I always like to pause and look back at what readers of The Time Finder were most drawn to in the previous days and weeks. It helps me know what you’re looking for, and is also just fun!
Here are the posts that were most visited during April, when managing change and making proactive time choices seemed to be on many people’s minds!
Change and You-Use Affirmations to Shape Your Time! We can’t control the fact of change in our lives, but our response to it is something we absolutely own. And affirmations really help!
Affirmations give us a way to shape our responses so that we are coming from a place of confidence and power, rather than taking a victim stance. Affirmations open up possibilities that we’d otherwise be blind to, and they profoundly affect our experience of life and of time.
When it comes to time, one size doesn’t fit all, and that’s where incremental time comes in. It’s about taking a mindful and flexible view of your tasks and priorities – a view that ultimately frees you to plan and allocate your time in the chunks that best fit your needs.
Heart-Based Time Management Tools: YOU are the Key to Finding Time! Finding time isn’t just about efficiency. It’s about knowing yourself, your rhythms, your values … your heart … and basing your choices on what you discover!
That’s because you are connecting yourself into a deep and vital source of power (think of plugging in a lamp). Where moments before you may have felt stuck and stymied, accessing your heart brings clarity, coherence, and buckets of energy that you didn’t know you had!
Deadlines: Use Them to Build Powerful Boundaries with These 3 Timely Tips is a post about transforming the way you view deadlines … so that they are still useful and meaningful, but not so daunting!
Do this by re-framing your deadlines as a series of boundary challenges that you possess the power to manage. It is vital to be clear about the fact that you have the power to manage whatever deadline you are working with.
And last but not least, Remembering What Matters in Just 30 Seconds of Your Time offers a very simple and quick strategy for assimilating what matters most as you move through your day – and doing it in just 30-seconds!
It is important to stick to the 30 second timeframe and to work to fully focus on capturing the essence of the experience you’ve just had. As the author notes, this isn’t easy – but it’s a habit that becomes second-nature over time, with practice.
