We all have the same time

I often hear that some people are busier than others ‘I have less time than…’

We all have the same time, it’s 24 hours in each day for every single one of the 7 billion + people on the planet.

It is what we choose to do with it that matters.

Goethe said ‘things which matter most must never be at the mercy of things which matter least.’

It seems simple, prioritise the things that are most important and do them first. However, without a purpose or meaning, it is hard to prioritise what to do first.

So the less meaning we have, strangely we have less time as we are not focused on anything in particular and we drift. Equally, the more we do many things, the less well we do any of them and then we have no time for the more important.

The more meaning we have, the more purpose, the more productive and intentional we become. So we actually get more done in less time. This frees us up for guilt-free leisure time and less resentful work time.

It is a fantastically self-perpetuating cycle as the more guilt-free leisure time we get, the more productive we are at work, as resentment is removed, and then the more guilt-free leisure we can enjoy.

Our time is completely free every day, it is our choice with what we fill the time with.

The final factor is that things that are of value to us and the world take time to come together, create and spread.

So we have the time we need, as not everything has to be done today.

5 minutes

moosti

Today I started to use this site called moosti.

You can set various timers, like the one I have set now for 5 minutes.

I kept setting this timer all morning, and then when the 5 minutes is up, an alarm sounds.

Initially, it makes you realise that you are not really doing very much in 5 minutes, like I have been messing about on Facebook through 3 alarms, shit 15 minutes.

Then it makes you focus and realise how much you could have done with those 5 minutes. Say for instance, this blog has taken less than 2.5 minutes so far.

Then it becomes a game to see just how much you could get done in 5 minutes.

5 minutes is longer than you realise if you are focused and there is always time.
