I’m guessing you’ve felt this way…
There’s too much to do, not enough minutes in the day and too many things you wish you could get done.
Just the sheer thought of it’s exhausting.
We’ve all been there, and you definitely aren’t alone, as when I was conducting interviews as research for my book ‘Become a Better You’, I found ‘time’ was the biggest barrier in the way for people making changes.
The thing is though, we all have the same amount of minutes in a day, and in most cases we could MAKE time if it was a priority.
But if we are really honest, for many of the things we ‘don’t’ have time for they simply aren’t a priority, as even though we might ‘like’ to do them, they’re not as important as we are convincing ourselves they are.
I’ll give you a prime example.
Something I used to practice on a regular basis is yoga. I don’t overly enjoy it, but I do a lot of heavy weight lifting and sitting behind a desk, so it’s great for recovery.
The last few months have been hectic though which is why I haven’t been attending classes.
Now I’m well aware that apart from the nights I had clients booked in I could have gone or done it at home, but instead I wanted to relax or not face the winters cold.
Why? Because it wasn’t a priority, it was just something I ‘should’ do.
With all the training my body has been feeling a little beat up, so I decided last night it was time I MADE it a priority.
Now you may be thinking ‘yeah but Byron you don’t understand, I have a full-time job, kids and a million other things to do, so when I get home I’m tired and just want to relax’.
Again, point proven.
You DO have time, you are just CHOOSING to spend it elsewhere, which is fine, no judgement, it’s just my job to get you to face the TRUTH, and the truth is we need to stop using time as an excuse.
The thing is though for most people, a lack of time is actually a direct result of a lack of planning, consistency and focus, meaning tasks take longer, projects get away from them or they waste a lot of time in between procrastinating and overthinking.
And this is why they are always flustered and running around like a headless chicken, feeling like no matter what they do, they never seem to get enough done.
But how exactly do you structure your day to manage your time and stay on track?
Well, I’m glad you asked, as yesterday I filmed a free coaching video where I’m going to show you exactly how to set yourself up for success, diving into some of the strategies I use with high performers to get them out of their own way and reach their true potential.
