My New Time Diet
A Vacation From Complaints About Time…
Remember this scene?
In like fashion as our dear friend bob discovered in this scene, I am officially taking a vacation from complaining about not having enough time. I’m so sick of hearing it from others, but more especially from hearing it from myself. Why do I say that? “I’m just too busy to do that.” We all know what that really means.
It really means, “I don’t want to do that thing you just suggested.”
And of course, We don’t have time to do all the things we don’t want to do.
In his book “The Big Leap” Gay Hendricks talks about this principle he calls “Einstein Time” which essentially means you are the center of time creation.
If you will make a simple shift from Newtonian-Time to Einstein-Time you will experience a major surge in your productivity, creativity and enjoyment. The shift takes place the moment you embrace one profoundly simple truth. Once you embrace and embody this truth, you will accomplish a great deal more and enjoy vast, new amounts of free time. It works so well and so quickly that it may seem like magic.
Here’s the basics, enjoy the moments you are in, and the opportunities you have, and stop using lack of time as a crutch for the things you are working on or not wanting to do. You can always create time for things that are urgent and important, but not others…?
I find it strange that I’ll skirt a social opportunity at time because work is too busy, but the moment a new iPhone is announced I automatically have ample time available to go wait in line and figure out how to get my hands on one. Seems a bit ridiculous.
So here’s to no more complaints about time, and not having enough of it. I have all the time in the world. I can complete all the important things in life that I would like to, and I’m available for everything in life that has meaning and gives me energy.
We are the center of time creation and energy, it doesn’t have to take us as long as we think to get through the things we’d like to accomplish, just own the facts that you want to finish a lot of things before you commit to something else. That productivity boost in your mentality around how you attack different problems and work solutions will create all the time you need.
If you hear me complaining about running out of time, remind me I’m on vacation. Thanks.
