When Purpose is Declared, Time Will Be Managed

When you declare a strong purpose to your day time will be managed.
When you declare a strong purpose to your day, self-control is a non-issue.

Most people automatically assume that they are dysfunctional or have some psychotic problem that no one else has when they can’t seem to manage their time.

I find that this is often not the case.

First of all, it may be better to manage your actions versus trying to manage time since time stands still for no man.

Really what we are trying to do is manage our life actions.

It is super simple to manage your actions and even your emotions when you have a strong enough sense of purpose about your day or whatever project you are working on.

My life coach, Steve Chandler, just published a phenomenal book called, “Time Warrior”.

In his book, he talks about how to slay procrastination and the perceived things that we think are holding us back from taking the actions that we should take.

One of the master keys that he talks about is simple and pure action.

People usually don’t take consistent, daily action on a certain task or set of tasks because they don’t really mean anything to them.

For example, laundry may not be a significant enough sense of purpose to get you moving.

However, if you have booked a flight to Santa Monica, California for tomorrow at 7:00AM, your entire life changes and rearranges to accommodate the flight. For some reason, the flight to Santa Monica was more than a sufficient sense of purpose to get you moving and to “manage your actions”.

You were fully packed 3 days ago, processed a stop mail delivery request at the post office, and laid out the close that you are going to wear tomorrow on the flight with the upcoming day’s itinerary of fun filled activities neatly laid on top.

It is not that you don’t know how to manage time; it is often that we have not created a strong enough sense of purpose. Revisit your goals daily and make sure to have a daily goal or sense of purpose that is exciting enough to get you into action. Make it fun, make it a game and things WILL get done.
