Let's find time for you

You currently Chase Time

You feel like you're two steps behind. 

Even if you work hard, you never catch up.

At times you get close, you almost get it all done. 

Then something happens and you need to chase time again. 

It is possible to go from chasing 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.
