Quite a few of us are swimming frantically around at the moment trying to keep our heads above the water. We have so much going on in both our business lives and personal lives right now that it has become a challenge to keep up. This is not happening only for small business but it is happening at a global level. I thought I’d share this article with you on how Japan’s Earthquake has tilted the planet’s axis and sped up the earth’s spin by a micro second. Scientist Greg Braden talks about it here in this video Something Big is About to Happen.
I just love the internet. It gives us so much access to knowledge which allows us to be informed to make better choices, be responsible and also to make the necessary changes we need in our lives in order to adapt and evolve.
After researching this topic extensively I know and so do many others that the earth is changing fast. People are changing and that something is going to happen. We just don’t know what that is yet but we all have that feeling deep inside of us. If the world is changing and people are changing then so do we. We have to find ways to adapt and to prepare ourselves to what suits us best in the world around us.
Let’s talk about how you can manage your time and keep up?
I’ve always managed my time well. I met deadlines, arrived to meetings on time and I have the ability to map out processes and implement systems but something has changed! I’m finding it harder and harder to do this and I’m finding that I keep running out of time. Projects that took me 2 days to finish is taking me 3 days, sometimes longer. Unlike most I do have the luxury of working 12 to 16 hours a day if I need to but then do I really want to do that? None of us do!
This leaves me to ask the question:
If time has speeded up! How do I manage my time in a way that works for both me and my clients?
Answer: Learning to follow my gut and rely on intuitive insight. For years we’ve been told to think with our brains and been conditioned to find the answers from a thinking perspective and not our hearts when in fact it is the opposite. We need to learn to think with our hearts and not our heads. It is scientific proof that the heart has a brain of its own and is 5000 times magnetically more powerful than the brain.
The heart is where the action is! Following your gut is bound to give you the knowledge and information you need at the right time and lead you in the right direction. The concept of perfect time.
I decided that if I’m going to have control over my time and be able to fit everything in, I would do what I’ve always done which is to:
- Make sure that I have clear goals in place for the year and a plan on how I’m going to achieve those goals. Every day I ask myself “What tasks/projects can I do today that will help me get closer to achieving the goals I set out for the year.
- Prioritise my workload so that deadlines are met and urgent matters are dealt with.
- Create a new habit and do something different this year, which is to rely on my intuition which comes from God, the Universe, the matrix, your belief system.
Since I’ve started doing this I found myself to be much calmer, less stressed and things are beginning to fall into place. The universe sees the bigger picture and what’s been happening to me is that I will be inspired to work on certain projects and not others. When I work on projects I’m inspired to work on, everything magically falls into place. I’m able to create, able to write, able to strategise. When I try working in my own time on non inspired projects then it feels like hard work and it feels tedious. Then I’ll leave it and trust that everything is in good hands and go back to working on what inspires me. When the time is right and I pick up projects that felt uninspiring at the time now becomes alive. The answers come to me, the creativity is inspired and everything just comes together. Another thing I noticed while experimenting with this theory, is that when I’m not inspired and work on projects not inspired that the customer isn’t ready for me either. When I feel ready, following my inspiration, my customer is also ready. Don’t get me wrong, even in the last hour deadlines are met because when inspired, magic happens.
Are you ready to challenge your thinking? Have you experienced this feeling of constantly not having enough time?
How do you manage everything?
