Let's find time for you

You currently Waste your time

Not on purpose of course. 

You automatically do what people ask of you.

If you ever find you have time over, you barely know how to use it.

In the end you give up on managing time and just  let life happen to you.

It is possible to go from wasting time to joyfully mastering it.

How to find time for the real you  

I know it can be hard to believe, especially in a phase of life when everything seems to happen at once. 

But it really is possible to find time for you, the ones you love and what you want to do.

All you need to learn is how to fill your Glass of Time.

Your Glass of Time is a symbol for the time you have available during a week.

The glass of time contains 168 hours (24 hours a day for 7 days).

Once you manage your typical week, you manage your life.

To fill your glass of time consciously, it is important to understand the different categories of time.

Waste time:
Time that just seems to slip away. 

Mindlessly browsing social media, dwelling on things you can’t change, overdoing irrelevant things.

Needs time:
Time that gives you energy.

Enjoying good meals, sleeping enough to thrive and moving in ways you love.

Want time:
The time you spend doing what you really want and like to do.

Painting, dancing, learning about things that interest you. Whatever makes your heart beat faster.

Should time:
The time you spend doing things because you think you should, even though you may not want to.

Gardening only to keep the neighbours happy, doing things your parents taught you without questioning them, going to mandatory meetings at work even though they don’t add value.

As you have probably understood by now, it is not about managing your time...

...it is about managing your life in the time you have. 

Start with these 4 steps: 

Step 1 - Put Needs time in your glass.

Sleep at least 7-8 hours a day. Eat healthily and move every day. This will give you the energy you need to use the time you have in an efficient way.

Step 2 - Put Want time in your glass.

Add the want time before the “should” time, otherwise you will never find space for it in your Glass of Time. If this is hard to fit in, start with just 5 minutes a day. 

Step 3 - Remove Waste time from your glass.

When you take steps 1 and 2 your Waste time will decrease automatically.

If you want to reduce it even more right now, choose 1 wasteful activity and stop yourself from doing it at least for 3 days.

Step 4 - Turn your shoulds into coulds.

Question all the activities you spend time on.

Choose consciously what to continue doing.

Eliminate or delegate the activities you choose to no longer spend time on.

Accept what you can’t change right now and make a plan for how to remove or reduce these activities in the future.

Now we know where you are and what that means for your life

What do you want to do next?

I can only guess, but I believe you want to fill your glass in the right order so you can make the most of your time and your life.

You know the principles now.

I know that transitioning from knowing to doing is not always easy.

When you do the transition you will stumble upon things that are specific for your situation. 

  • “What if I have a small baby that keeps me awake all night, and I can’t sleep the recommended 7-8 hours?”

  • “How do I even know what my Wants are?”

  • “If my work is a big and energy-draining “should”, how can I reduce or eliminate that?” 

Filling your Glass of Time is an interesting and sometimes challenging journey. 

I have helped many who started where you are now.
