hourglass green sandToday Daylight Saving Time started and the first thing I remember saying to myself this morning is, “I want my hour back.” I wanted back the hour that was snatched from me. That hour of peace and quiet for my Sunday. Then I heard my own voice in my head say the same thing I tell my clients, “Remember that time doesn’t exist anyway, and you have all the time there is.” All I could do was laugh.

If you’re like me you may be wanting your hour back too, but like I reminded myself, we have all the time there is and since time doesn’t exist, there’s really no loss. We get to create what time is for us and learn how to walk that fine line between knowing that it’s just a concept and operating in a world where people allow it to run their lives. When we remember that and take control of our days, there are ways we can, so to say, add time back into our day.

  • Get & Stay Focused-Staying focused is a primary key when it comes to your day to day to-dos. Once you have clarity, you can create the vision and once you have the crystal clear vision, you can focus and stay on point. It becomes much easier to know what your priorities are because your vision is clear…you know what you’re up to and what’s important.
  • Let Go-Delegate the things that don’t require your expertise to do. Make the time to explain the how-to hand it over to a highly capable party and focus on the things that only you can do. Also let go of the things that aren’t important in relation to what your focus is. Those tasks that have been on your agenda for a while that you just can’t seem to get to, so they keep getting moved, or those things that you do as a way of avoiding what really needs to be done.
  • Make Your To-Be List-You’re so caught up in the things that have to be done that you lose your focus and forget to think about who you’re being. Before you can even think about what there is to do, you’ve got to take a look at who it is you need to be. Being an entrepreneur requires you to be bold, tenacious, fearless just to name a few ways of being. When you determine what you’re creating for yourself you have to step outside of who it is that you’re usually being, so make your to-be list first.

Putting these things into action can help you get up to two “additional” hours in your day. Get your hour back and then some!
