What Are You Doing With Your Time?
As we know, time flies with a snap of a finger. But how often are we taking advantage of our time?
Why does the majority of society look forward to a Friday night but not a Monday morning. Why is it that we only express ourselves during the weekends, but not the weekdays?
Every day is important. Wake up every morning and say “thank you.” It's a blessing to wake up and be able to achieve your goals or whatever it is you're working on.
Freedom is one of the reasons many people enter the entrepreneurial world. But entrepreneurship isn’t easy. Many entrepreneurs spend 72 hours plus per week working on their business with little to no sleep continuously losing freedom. But entrepreneurs want freedom and that’s why they became an entrepreneur.
Here are three steps to maximize your freedom:
Discipline is a practice that creates new habits. To maximize your freedom, what is your schedule for bed? If you’re going to bed by midnight and waking up at 10am, your body has overslept. However, if you’re in bed by 10pm and waking up at 6am, your body has a full 8 hours of sleep, which is needed for the body to receive the rest it needs and allows you to take care of priorities earlier in the day.
To really challenge yourself, start going to bed at 9pm and waking up at 5am. This way you can start your day earlier than most.
Now understanding discipline, what are your priorities? Business is always one of them, but make sure your time is balanced.
Ask yourself how can this be beneficial for you to move forward. Set a time limit for each priority! You want to be able to take care of the most important project first and go down the list with a timeframe to complete each assignment. If you go past your allotted time, stop what you're doing and move on to what's next on the list.
After completing the tasks, depending how long they took, you have all afternoon to spend on whatever it is you wish to do. If it’s continuing on with business or tasks you want to complete, do so! Always make sure to enjoy your life.
Always be productive. Did you know the average person spends two or more hours on social media platforms wasting time?
It's great to look at a meme and giggle, but are you letting it impact your time and business? Watching cats on YouTube doesn't help you get things done.
Your priorities should be productive to help you accomplish more, which allows more free time for yourself. If you’re feeling off task, ask yourself, “How is this helping me move forward in my life?”
If you feel you’ve finished all your priorities, read a book instead of going on social media. Discover new ways to improve your business, health, wealth, love or happiness.
Hope you enjoyed these three steps to freedom. Make sure to implement them because if there's no action being taken, there will be no results.
Ask yourself, “Am I a disciplined, prioritized or productive person?” If not, by following these three steps, it will help you increase your time freedom. Remember, don't put your life around your business; put your business around your lifestyle.
