How do the busiest people we know, hold time more as asset for opportunity than ax for hacking shortcuts?
Other busy leaders claim they’d love to rejuvenate broken systems, yet time runs out before they get to change initiatives. Have you seen time blamed as cause for chaos and confusion at work? Do you agree that time’s the culprit?
Good news is that time’s in your control – likely even more than you think. How so? Jackson Brown listed time on benefit side of the ledger for people who prepare their minds to optimize its advantages. How so?
People who claim to lack time, have the same hours daily as Helen Keller, Pasteur, Michaelangelo, Mother Teresa, Leonardo da Vinci, Thomas Jefferson, and Albert Einstein. The difference is in the delegation. Assign time to tasks and your brain will do the rest.
What will time toss back to your day? If assets appear too small, why not rewire your brain’s plasticity to manage time. Evidence that it works?
Far higher dividends come back with planned time tactics:
1. Race against your personal best time for those routine that gobble up minutes, and you’ll both reboot focus and avoid usual distractions that chomp up time.
2. Mix more intelligences into your work and enjoy more effective results in less time. At times that means tapping more of your own talents, and at times it involves moving a group’s multiple intelligences up a notch.
3. Remove stress to free up time for top priorities, and watch spaces appear for relaxation. You’ll relax – exercise – dine with friends – start a new hobby – laugh – listen to music – pet the dog – and sleep more, when time’s found for your well-being.
4. Toss in a mental workout and you’ll also reap time-saving benefits from brain warm-ups for quicker mental recharge. A sluggish mind is strengthened and moves more effectively with a few brain calisthenics geared to getting a brain in shape.
