There is never enough time. Well, at least, it feels that way.
Despite how busy you feel, we all have the same 24 hours in a day. Yet some still manage to get so much more done. How?
For as long as I can remember I have had a strange relationship with time. I often curse at the clock while I’m running late. But then there are other times when I’m staring at the time, agonizing as the slowly passing minutes feel like days.
My relationship with time has meant I spend a lot of time thinking about time. Which seems maybe like a waste of time? But who knows?
How do you feel about time? Do you feel like you have enough?
Do you need more? Or more importantly could you use the time you have available more effectively?
A complaint that I often hear is “I don’t have enough time.” People tell me that they want to learn a language but could never find the time.
If I was being honest, I feel like this too. But, we all see the same sun rise and sunset everyday yet there are a select few that make is seem that they have two or more days to our one.
So what separates the people that can do more with less?
For anybody facing problems with time, it is rare that the lack of time is the actual problem. Instead, the actual problem is how they think about time.
In today’s mindset podcast, I’m going to talk about how I think about time. What the time spent thinking about time has brought me. What you can do to re-think how you think about time. And with that change in mindset how you can get more out of the time you have.
Often students don’t think about time in an empowering way. Some students talk about time in a way that makes them sound and feel helpless.
The language you use matters. With this episode I encourage you to change the language you use around time. How you talk about it. How you describe it and how you make excuses about it.
