DO WE HAVE ENOUGH TIME ?
“I don’t have enough Time”…“Time is just running away”. “So much to do and I have so little Time!”
Such thoughts keep crossing our mind. But these are mostly misconceptions. We do have time.
We don’t build the life we want to build by saving time. However, we build our lives and Time saves itself. When we think we don’t have time for a certain task, we actually mean that it is not a priority. When we feel the result of such a task is really rewarding to us, we will definitely take out time to execute it.
All of us have a week for 24 x 7 = 168 hours
We work for 9 hours a day for five days a week i.e 9 x 5 = 45 hours
We sleep for 8 hours a day i.e. 8 x 7 = 56 hours
That leaves us with 67 hours in a broader way.
So if we think, we can accommodate our priorities in these 67 hours every week.
How to go about it?
- Let’s pretend its end of the year and we had an amazing time both in a professional and in a personal level. Let’s note down three to five things that made our year great.
- These would be our goals and we would break them in doable steps.
- At end of every week, we will plan our upcoming week in three categories keeping in mind the time we have calculated and we have got.
Small moments have great power. There is always time for what matters. And when we choose to focus on what matters, we build the lives we want.
