To create more free time, it helps to become aware of the energetics created by our routines, our stuff and our surrounding environment.
You see, we can protect and even boost our energy levels by creating systems to handle the minutiae and diiligently eliminating our excess stuff!
This planet is currently experiencing an information and technology overload.
There is so much noise in the world it is hard to pay attention to the important things. The things that will bring us success. The things that will bring us joy and peace.
Let’s face it: We spend so much time accumulating possessions, interacting with technology and shuffling paperwork that we often lose track of what we need to do in order to keep our life in balance.
It is easier now than ever to become unbalanced and overwhelmed.
Do you have days where at the end of the day, you wonder what you actually did? It happens to all of us.
There are many proven techniques that you can use to create balance, have more time for fun and even increase your prosperity.
Here is one routine to incorporate into your life and a sure-fire way to take contol of your time:
Stop letting your inbox zap your energy and suck the productivity out of your day. Take control of your email addiction and never check your inbox first thing in the morning!
I know you might have heard this before but do you understand why it is important?
When you jump into your inBox before you plan what you need to accomplish that day, you will get sucked in and inevitably delay tackling your current projects for an hour or two.
Why does this happen? I am not sure if you have thought about this, but here is the truth about emails:
Every email sent to you represents someone who wants you to do something. Someone who wants you to take some type of action. So – guess what?
When you begin reading your emails, you immediately go into reaction mode. You either spend time responding immediately or figure out that you dont have time to respond and table it for later.
Once tabled, the email/request stays there demanding your time and energy later. Does this make sense?
So this is your challenge, should you accept it, for this week: Don’t open your inBox until you have planned your day and know exactly what you wish to accomplish. Once you are crystal clear about the direction and schedule for the day, you will know how much time you can spend there and what time is the appropriate time to open your emails and check your inbox.
Try being intentional with your inbox this week. You will be amazed how your stress level lowers and how much more you will accomplish.
Time is a finite resource. Everyone has the same amount of hours in the day and the same amount of days in the week. When your schedule is overbooked, the result is often subtle. Minutes and hours evaporate each day from your life. (more…)
Write things down as you think of them. Keep a notepad on hand and jot reminders as you go. This will save you frustration and countless hours trying to remember those niggly wiggly little things you were supposed to do.
