How do you spend your time?
Friday afternoon, I was energized. I had been working with a client’s employees, helping them to plan and polish their public speaking skills. I love teaching, even more than I love chocolate. (That gives you an idea of the level of love and passion I have for my work.)
Are you doing what you want to do with your time? Or are you faking it?
You know what I mean. Multi-tasking when that annoying person calls. Staying at a job you hate. Saying yes to that volunteer gig that already has you grinding your teeth. Are you feeling cranky and stressed even when you sleep? Look at your schedule over the past week or the past month. How do you spend your time?
Poof! You’re a millionaire with a year left to live. You have unlimited resources as long as you do something you love. How will you spend your time?
Angry Birds, Bedazzled, video games, and TV can be fun, but if you only had a precious 365 days left, how much time would you spend doing those things? Is there an idea for a painting swirling through your head? Are you craving going barefoot in the sand? What about that course you’ve wanted to take for ages? Or that promotion you’re afraid to try for? Oooh that vacation? What are you craving to say YES to?
Would you do it for nothing? Because in essence you are doing it for nothing and for everything. How will you spend your time this week? Are you courageous enough to make some new decisions?
