Do you ever feel like there is just not enough time to do everything that you want to and “have to”? Does your life feel like never-ending blur of to-do lists, emails, events, commitments, and obligations? Do you ever worry that time is racing by so quickly that you are missing out on quality time with your friends, family, and yourself?
If so, you’re certainly not alone. In this day and age, most of us are familiar with that frazzled feeling of being overworked and overwhelmed. We are busier than ever and yet we find ourselves struggling to find the time to do the things that will help move us to our bigger goals, dreams, and life vision. We think time is the enemy holding us back from reaching our goals and enjoying the quality of life we desire. We tell ourselves that we will start pursuing our dreams “when life settles down”, but that day never seems to come.
I have always wrestled with time and consider myself to be a recovering busy-ness addict and time-abuser. I have always blamed “lack of time” for my lack of productivity and lack of peace. Even today, the words, “I don’t have enough time” always sit on the tip of my tongue and it has taken me years to break the habit of giving the knee-jerk response of “busy” when asked how I’m doing. But this unhealthy relationship with time has led me to discover a new passion and obsession – life, time, and productivity hacking!
There is so much to learn about the way our brains and bodies can best utilize the 24 hours we are all given each day. I find the concept of brain and body optimization to be absolutely thrilling. I mean, don’t we all want to feel like Bradley Cooper in Limitless? But until they create a nootropic like NZT that won’t cause time blackouts, limping, or death (if you haven’t seen Limitless, add to it your “movies to watch” list right now), we must be heal our relationship with time so that we may optimize our lives and start living our dreams.
I am thrilled to have the opportunity to teach my first “Optimize Your Life” class this coming Saturday, September 13th at 4:30pm at Happiness U. I am so excited about this subject and I have designed this class to help you shift from “overwhelmed and busy” to “efficient, productive, and inspired” so that you no longer have to feel like time is the enemy.
In this 90-minute workshop, I will share tips, tools, strategies, and resources to optimize your life and maximize your time. You’ll learn how to manage the technology in your life (instead of having it manage you) and discover how fun and easy it can be to outsource and automate lower-level tasks and stuff you just don’t want to do. I will share my favorite, easy-to-implement physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual hacks that can help you be more efficient so that you do more of what you and create more time for work, play, travel, fun, or all of the above!
Remember, it’s not about having time, it’s about CREATING time! When I feel those old patterns of “time blaming” and “time frustration” popping up, I take a deep breath and remind myself that I have all the time in the world to do everything I want to and more, because I CREATE TIME. Today, as you go about your day, evaluate your relationship is with time and take a simple inventory of how you are spending each moment of your 24 hours. Remember, with or without NZT, you are LIMITLESS!
