I'm not trying to be all in your business or anything, but how committed are you?
Now, before you go getting all upset with me, I'm talking about to your goals! How committed are you to achieving the life that you desire? Most people hear this question and immediately say "I'm Married!!" but then the question becomes, is your lifestyle a reflection of you being married to your success?
One of the things that I've learned on this self discovery and coaching journey, is that it's not just wanting something to happen, it's committing to making it happen and a big part of that is making the time....
Now, a lot of get real comfortable with allowing our time to have a mind of it's own. We let things happen instead of making things happen. We show up late, and sometimes, not at all, not just for others but also for ourselves! We refuse to make the commitment.
If you find yourself having a very lackadaisical relationship with time, then these 3 tips can help get you right!
3 Tips for Addressing Your Relationship with Time
1. Write it down: Schedules are extremely important!! Who do you think you are??? Even in the bible they say write it down and make it plain and you should be doing the same! If you want to be good at something, you have to practice doing it correctly. When it comes to time, you have to practice telling your time what to do and it will start cooperating. Many people use their phone but I also recommend you using good old fashion, pen and paper. Invest in a planner, one that works for you, and use it. I promise it will change your life.
2. Hold Yourself Accountable: If you said that you were going to do something, and you planned on doing something, and you know that something needs to be done to contribute to your success, then why are you not doing it??? Your success id your responsibility and it is insane to think that anyone else would take it as personal as you do. You have to take your success into your hands and make sure that whether things work out or not, you take a good look at your contribution to it, and move accordingly in the next phase.
3. You are not a Superhero: Look, you are pretty amazing, don't ask me how I know, just know that I know, but you can't do everything! Many times, we are the problem. We want to be everywhere and do everything for everybody and it just isn't feasible. You have to start prioritizing what's most important and using that as a scale for how to run your day moving forward. And let's be clear, I'm not telling you to tell the people you care about no, I juust want you to work on phrases like "my schedule can't accommodate that", "I'm sorry, I'm not available" and "not at this moment". Ahh come on, you can do it!
So, those 3 just scratch the surface but if you practice them, you'll get really good and before you know it, you'll be the boss of your time and you'll start really making things happen. How do you feel about that?
