Happy Timely Tuesday, Friends. Every day should have some focus, and for this website, Tuesdays are dedicated to analyzing our time. If you want to know what’s important in someone’s life, look at how they spend their money and their time. If your time is not dedicated to reaching your goals, take some steps to re-align your time to reflect your goals. Every once in awhile our printers need realignment. Why wouldn’t our time need realignment too? So, figure out what is important to you, and make sure you are spending time on what is important.
Give yourself permission to spend time on your goals. If you don’t value your time, no one else will. It’s an important exercise to see how you are spending your time. Find some way at the end of each day to see where you spent your time. Does your time spent match what you value? For example, if an organized house is important to you, how much time do you spend each day organizing your house? The time spent blaming yourself for an unorganized house not only doesn’t count but it detracts from your goal. Let’s take away our time mentally blaming ourselves and put the time toward actually doing our goals.
For anyone who thinks baby steps don’t matter, try leaving out the small amount of required baking soda out of your chocolate chip cookies. Nestle’s chocolate chip recipe require 2 1/4 cups of flour but only 1 tsp of baking soda. You might think given the large amount of flour, who is going to notice if the baking soda is omitted? The baking soda, though only a teaspoon, is the only ingredient that will give rise to your cookies. It’s the leavening agent.
So, for today and everyday, take time toward your goals. Even tiny amounts of time will be something to get your goals going. Sometimes the biggest obstacle is getting out of our own heads and starting. Have fun today taking time for your goals. Happy Timely Tuesday, Friends.
