Every Day Is Humpday

It’s Wednesday…AKA Humpday. A lot of people struggle to get to the middle of the week and once they’re through it they somehow feel a sense of relief since there are only 2 days left afterward.

From where I’m sitting, I see is that every day is Humpday. The hump isn’t the middle of the week, but instead it’s what keeps you from getting things done. Until you eliminate the hump, every day is Humpday.


Personal power is your self-esteem, willpower, self-discipline, as well as warmth in your personality. It allows you to focus, take action and create change and is associated with the third chakra, which lies between navel and solar plexus. That chakra is all about your core self; who you are.  That energy gives you the capacity to transform inertia into movement or action. It’s also associated with being confident, responsible and reliable. All are important when it comes to getting things done. Personal power allows you to focus, take action and create change.

If time is running the show and has control of your days, you’ve given your personal power over to it. Here’s how you get it back.


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.

DontManage-WieldYou may have heard me talk about wielding time if you’re a regular reader or a client. If you haven’t, let me start by saying that there’s a big difference between managing time and wielding it. Since you’re here I would imagine that you’re struggling when it comes to getting things done. You’re running out of day before you run out of things to do. You’re caught up. Caught up in the everyday to-dos and everything that goes along with it, trying to manage family, business and to have a life and time for yourself.

When people are caught up and fed up, their focus shifts to how to make it better, how to get it all done and overall they are looking for a way to “manage time”. The primary challenge with this is that people seek to manage something that doesn’t even exist. Time is a concept; something man created to help him understand and comprehend the physical world as he sees it in his everyday experience. Here you are trying to manage it and it doesn’t exist. This is one reason you struggle. Not only are you caught up, you’re stuck with a perspective that has you think you can control something that’s not real.

Managing time means daily struggle, one size, not so quite fits all solutions, but using them and trying to make them work as best you can because it’s what you’ve got. It means rushing to get things done, and facing challenges like procrastination and multiple interruptions every day without knowing what to do.

So, how to you stop? How to you go from where you are to wielding time? It’s a process that includes shifting your mindset and knowing time is a concept. Start with empowering yourself knowing that you get to create your day. The next step is important. That crucial step is to figure out how you relate to time because productivity is personal. Better yet, dig in deep and discover your Productivity Persona™. Use what you discover to choose a tool that fits you like a glove. Once you have the tool that you’re going to use to serve you on a daily basis, keeping you on track and contributing to your productivity, build your productivity system around it by determining the processes that you need to support you on a regular basis. Detail the steps for the processes in writing. Then figure out who, besides you needs to be part of your system to perform the processes within the system.

In a nutshell, this is your foundation for beginning to make the shift to wielding time™ so that you can get it done. Being in that space of wielding time means that you understand how you personally relate to time; you know what time of day works for you personally and you use it to get to the things on your agenda every day. It means that you’ve taken control; you get to say what time is and you have your personal power back and you’re using it to get it done. Wielding time means freedom, flow and maximum productivity.

Wielding-Time-2-Revision-2-Front-Cover-Only-June-17-2013Everything in life is about perspective. How you see things. That feeds your actions and how you operate every day. In many cases our perspective about particular things is what it is because it was what we learned, or what we picked up when we were young. Typically, people keep those views and operate from them. But what would happen if you changed your perspective? How would it impact the things that you do every day and how you operate?

For some it might be a bit upsetting, but it can also be very liberating. What do you think would happen if you were to shift your perspective of time? That new perspective would free you from the holds of the common way that people see time. It will allow you to see how you’ve given over your personal power to this thing we call time. This presentation helps you see where you are, and why you’re caught up in the struggle that so many people are caught up in daily. If that’s where you are, this presentation will help you learn where your blind spots are and get present to your dysfunctional relationship with time. Moreover, you’ll gain a new perspective of time and how to take back your personal power to increase your productivity. Go from being caught up in the struggle, to creating the space that will allow you to wield time™.

Three things that you’ll walk away with:

  • Why you struggle to manage time and the key to ending that struggle
  • What time really is
  • Setting the stage to take back your power and begin to wield time™
