TIME: An Abundant Resource

Time is a perception. If you feel time is scarce, time will be scarce. You will start to try and accomplish a long to do list that never ends.  When you feel time is abundant, you choose how you spend it. As a result, you feel much calmer. You find time for self-care, people, and activities that are important to you. 

I don't have time...

How many people say this? After coaching women entrepreneurs for eight years now, I've noticed that women want to do everything, and do it perfectly. Rather than lead to our ideal life, this mindset leads to exhaustion and disappointment. 

I, too, was a perfectionist. I did everything to the point of exhaustion, until I realized one day that this was not working. As the years passed, I started to choose based on what was really important. Sometimes people do not approve or understand this, but I I am not here to please others! 

Here are 3 ways I found time for what was important for me: 

1) Choosing what makes me happy

Spirituality, business, and self-care are my top three values so I've created a weekly and daily schedule around these things. If you take the time to figure out your values, you'll know what's important to you and what you want to spend time doing. These choices will make you feel happy and whole.

2) Scheduling time for rest

I am need a lot of rest to be productive. I’d rather spend a few hours doing my best and being distraction-free, than do a lot more work while managing distractions at the same time. After the Universe gave me a wake-up call with some health issues, I got the message and learned to listen to my body.  

3) Deciding what to say no to

Since realizing I don't need to be perfect, I say no to housework. Saying “no” is a challenge, especially if you enjoy pleasing others. Years ago, I realized saying “yes” to others often meant saying “no” to myself. When you put yourself first, you do a better job on the things you say yes to.

Time is a Perception.

If you think you don't have enough time, ask yourself: On what can I focus my attention to bring happiness? Am I getting enough rest and feeling taken care of? What are the things I can say no to?

By answering those questions, you can begin to see time as an available, abundant resource.
