2 Questions:

How do you spend your time, how much on what things?
What?s most important to you, most important in your life?

Ok, sorry, there are actually two more questions.

My oldest at Smith Rock State Park in Central Oregon.

Do the two questions above fall in alignment with each other?
In other words, does the way you spend the time you have match what you say is most important?

It?s not very often I meet someone who?s ?time? matches their stated ?priorities.? Our culture pushes hard for us to do do do do do. We are stressed to the max, schedules are busy beyond reason, and we never make the space in our lives to enjoy who we are and the life we?ve been given.

Why does this happen??

Most people are reasonably intelligent, I mean, despite what the driving you see on the street would indicate, most people really aren?t dumb. When you talk to them, you find they are usually reasonable and smart. Why then, almost universally, do we miss this important truism?

Why is it so hard for us to keep our eyes on the ball? Do we even know what the ball we are supposed to keep our eyes on is?

How you spend each day, how the minutes all stack up at the end of an hour is an unmistakable gauge of exactly what your priorities are by how you live.

It?s undeniable, it?s 100% accurate, and can never be fudged.

How you spend your time IS a reflection of what?s most important in your life.

Why then, is it so often totally out of sync with what we ?want? our priorities to be? Why do we work so hard on the wrong things, why do we waste so much time on the crap we don?t really even care about?

It?s a matter of purposeful planning and honest self-reflection and evaluation.

Ya know, frankly, it?s not all that hard to ensure the stuff you care about is the stuff you spend time doing. It?s really not. Sure, there will be a crap ton of people, things, deadlines, commitments, and such competing for your time, but at the end of the day, you really just have to focus on what you believe is actually important to you.

This takes work, it takes persistence for sure, and it takes some self-honesty that I feel most people aren?t willing to have.

What about you? Are you willing to look yourself in the eye and be truthful about what ?your time? says about what’s important to you?

Are you? Then what are you waiting for get to it baby!

Time follows values and priorities

Your time is ALWAYS a reflection of your values, what you believe to be important.

If, after a self evaluation of your time spent, you’re inclined to argue with me; perhaps you should adjust how you spend that time instead. 😉
