Heart-Based Time Skills — Your Feelings Show You the Way

emotions heart-based time skills

Your feelings profoundly affect your time.

Heart-based time management offers a path to time success that’s different from the usual fare.

That’s because finding time for feelings is a key ingredient in this heart-based system.  Feelings are often ignored in time management circles.  I think that’s because feelings are seen as “soft”  and subjective – not measurable or scientific.

However, feelings can make or break your time management efforts. So, when you approach time management in a heart-based way, you include all the parts of you – mind, body, emotions, and spirit – in the equation.  And that adds up to a lot.

Factoring in Your Feelings

Our feelings about our feelings can be very contradictory. Just think about it.

We often empower our feelings. This is what’s going on when we experience an emotion ‘taking over.’

But then, at the same time, we minimize or shrug off our feelings. Remember that ’70’s song, “Feelings”? The refrain says it all: “Feelings, nothing more than feelings.”

That song really sums up our ambivalence about feelings.  The explicit theme is about how unimportant feelings are. And yet, the entire song is about how they dominate the singer’s life.

The Heart-Based Way

The reality is that your feelings have a profound effect on you and on your relationship to time.  And the good news is that you are always in a position to harness the power of your feelings so that you are in sync with yourself. This means that your full energy is available to you.

Just as your car runs more smoothly and requires less energy to go faster and farther when the wheels are in perfect alignment, you perform better when your thoughts, feelings, emotions, goals, and values are in balance. ~ Brian Tracy
