Tag Archive: more time



Now, you’ve heard me say before that you can’t actually get more time, which is true. You have 1,440 minutes every day and you aren’t going to get any more no matter how hard you wish for or dream of having it. Not to mention the fact that time isn’t real, it’s a concept so you can’t get more of something that doesn’t really exist.

What you can do though is make some steps to get back the time that you’re wasting right now and to make better investments of your time. Click the play button and check out this episode of  Time & Space on Own Your Power Radio. I’m giving you seven ways you can find more time.

I Want My Hour Back!


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!

The magic number is 1,440, so just how do you “add” to that? There are things that you can do as a means to getting more time in your day. Of I’m not talking about actually making your days longer, but about taking back your time. You can get about 2 hours back into your day, which is awesome when you think about the amount of time you can get back over the course of a week.

There are a few different ways you can get back some of your time but here I’m going to share how focus can help you get back some of the time you’re losing. What are your days like without focus? You might already know because that’s the experience you’re having right now. Focus is about backing up for a minute and getting really clear about where you’re going and what you seek to create and how you want to feel. For that you need vision, and to be able to see your vision you need clarity. Without clarity, there is no vision and without vision you can’t get where you expect to get.  The only thing you can expect is to spin your wheels.  The clearer you are about where you’re going, what you’re creating and how you want to feel inside of your every-day experiences, the more efficient and effective you can be in achieving those things.

Once the clarity is there, 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.  You know that the new task that just became necessary is nowhere as important as what you have on your agenda so it’s easy to not get distracted by it. You can easily delegate it and keep it moving. Without focus, your days are like a blurry picture. You can’t see it clearly and you certainly can’t enjoy it. Get focused and gain back the time you’re losing without it.
