Surrendering to the 24 hours in each day

Your relationship to time matters. When you chronically feel that there isn't enough time, you trap yourself in a world where you can never get enough done. You turn yourself into a human machine instead of a human being. I don't want that for you because I know how terrible it feels to be living like a machine. That's a story for another day :)

Here are some ideas about how to shift your relationship with time. 

1. Spend time without having a schedule. Yes, you can do this at least on the weekends.

2. Stop wearing a watch. Use the handy timer on your smart phone (or buy a cheap timer) to keep track of a meeting or a portion of time.

3. Learn how to wake up without an alarm clock.

4. Start telling yourself everyday that you have plenty of time for what is really important to you. Get your subconscious mind to start prioritizing and stop wasting time with unimportant stuff.

5. Do your deathbed work so you aren't afraid of wasting your life.

Some of these may sound a little strange, perhaps impossible. I would have thought so years ago too. All of these practices helped me change my relationship with time. These habits equate to a sense of real freedom and peace. 

 

Sure you can organize more, be more efficient and plan better.

But if you really believe you don't have enough time, you'll just organize and plan yourself into another time-limited box.
