More Time Please
By Jason E. Johns
You"ve got goals haven't you? Things you want to achieve in life? The thing I would guess you are lacking is the time to do it. I mean, you've got a job, then your social commitments, then your hobbies, sports, TV time and - oh yes - you have to sleep too.
And after all this, what time is there left to work on your goals and making your life outstanding?
And I bet you would like more time, wouldn't you?
Everyone has twenty four hours in a day, whether you are Bill Gates or a homeless guy on the streets. Everyone has exactly the same amount of time. It's what you do with it that determines whether you sleep in a $42million mansion or under yesterday's newspapers.
So how can you get some more time to work on your success and that dream life?
Well, there are lots of ways you can get more time.
How much time do you spend in front of the TV each day? The average is about 3 hours. What if you cut that back by an hour a day?
How about instead of lying in bed for that extra half hour romancing your snooze button you got up straight away?
What if you used your lunch break to read and research what you needed to know in order to achieve your goals?
How long is your commute to work? The average is about an hour, so what if this time was used to learn, think and plan?
You probably use a computer too, and answer email or write letters. What if you learnt to type faster and so make your computer time more productive?
Let's take a hypothetical example here. From doing the above you get an hour from reducing your TV, half an hour from getting up earlier, half an hour for lunch, and an hour commuting time. Plus, let's say you learn to type and so save half an hour a day on the computer because you can type faster.
That means you get three and a half hours extra a day to work on your success - free!
Now, you'd better sit down for a moment here because this may surprise you. This three and half hours a day equates to an extra fifty three days a year for you to work on your success.
So you would get fifty three days free just by making this small sacrifice! Not bad is it?
Imagine what you could do with those extra days? It's almost two more months in the year! I am sure you could create your dream life in that extra time, don't you?
