Five Tips To Improve Time Management

Five Tips To Improve Time Management

Finding time to accomplish all of our daily activities can seem like a daunting task to complete. The world is full of distractions and useless information, and we must continuously distinguish what matters, as opposed to what is obsolete and meaningless. These tips will provide all of the tools you need to utilize; securing time for what holds importance.

1. Concentration

Responsibilities are part of our everyday lives, upholding them is vital to continuing a peaceful existence. Completing responsibilities on time cannot be achieved without the element of concentration. Letting your mind wander, procrastinating, and getting engulfed by distractions are a common occurrence, in this world of digital frenzy. Develop a mindset that focuses on one task at a time, devoting the entirety of your effort and enthusiasm towards finishing what you started. These simple practices will ensure that your time is being used wisely.

2. Clarity

There are numerous methods to acquire clarity–and the most effective is when focus and dedication converge into a ball of shimmering, positive energy. Having a vast understanding of what’s required to reach a new milestone is having an approximate estimate on the amount of time it will take. These thoughts will manifest into ideas, which in turn, will increase performance. And once performance has been improved, there will be more time to use. The clearer your mind is, the easier it becomes to succeed–and none of us want to meander through life as a failure. The practicality of working smart is an assurance of clarity. Knowing how to use an hour for your benefit will always be more valuable than giving two hours away to a fruitless branch.

3. Structure

Organization is the only option to advance on a daily basis. Write down a rough schedule in a notebook, so you have an outline that can be followed throughout the day. It doesn’t have to be a specific date or week, just be specific on the tasks at hand. Don’t make it harder than what it needs to be. Structure doesn’t entail any type of superhuman skills, or even take an abundance of effort–you must devote every hour to having a sense of purpose and constancy.

4. Focus On The Present

The past already went by, it shouldn’t be a place you choose to reside in or dwell on with sorrow. Reflection is designed solely to see how far you’ve come, the hardships you conquered, and the blessings received. The time is now; this is where all of the power is channeled. Be conscious of what you do in the moment, this is a direct indicator of how your future will turn out. The greatest gift given is taking advantage of the present, by unraveling the strands of time, with the thoughts of wanting more. Satisfaction and comfort aren’t a catalyst for optimal use of the present. Hunger is the drive that oils the wheels of your car. Hit the road, expect bumps, turns, and the occasional highway, but never lose hunger or you will run out of gas.

5. Imagine The Future

Having a vision is the capability to see yourself in a position of higher status in the future. Looking forward to the future is all about your focus on the present. Working from A-Z is the only route to take, but understanding the process from Z-A will get you where you want to be much faster. Swiftness is an ability everyone can produce, but we all move at different paces, so respecting the process is necessary.

Time management is the only lane to progress, and we hope these insights will get you where you need to be.

10 Steps For Success: Applying The Power Of Your Subconscious Mind

10 Steps For Success: Applying The Power Of Your Subconscious Mind

How big is the gap between you and your success?

What is the difference between successful people and unsuccessful people?

It is as simple as this: successful people think and talk about what they are creating, and unsuccessful people focus on and talk about what they’re lacking.

So how do you bridge that gap between wanting success and having your success? Let’s make an important distinction. You see, there is a big difference between “Wanting” and “Having” something.

Wanting: means lacking or absent. Deficient in some part, thing or aspect.

Having: means to possess, to hold, to get, to receive, to experience.

You can have one OR the other, but not both at the same time with any particular object of your desire. You either have it or you don’t.

When it comes to your subconscious, if you’re focusing on the “wanting”, i.e. the not having, guess what, you will build stronger neural networks in your brain around the “wanting.” However, through the power of your subconscious mind, you can focus on the “having” as if it has already happened. Research has shown that your brain doesn’t know the difference between what you’re visualizing inside your mind versus what is happening out there in your reality.

This is a regular practice of elite athletes. They spend as much timing creating the internal mental imagery of their success playing out as they do actually physically practicing. This helps create both the neural pathways in their brain and the muscle memory to consistently deliver on that success.

Here are 10 “brain hack” steps for success that you can take to create your version of a happy life. Make these steps a regular habit, and you will be astonished at the results.

Step 1: Decide exactly what you want to create and have

This is usually the biggest problem that people have. They don’t know what they want and then they’re surprised when they don’t get it.

Step 2: Write down your goal clearly in every technicolor detail

A goal that is not written down is merely a wish. When you write it down in full detail, you signal to your subconscious mind that you really want to accomplish this particular goal.

Step 3: Write your goal in simple, present tense words

…that a three year old can understand on a three-by-five index card and carry it with you. Read it each morning after you awake and just before you go to sleep.

Step 4: Backwards planning

See your goal achieved and identify all the steps required that it took to bring it to life. Making a list of all these steps intensifies your desire and deepens your belief that the attainment of the goal is already happening.

Step 5: Resolve to take at least one step every day from one of the items on your list

Do something every day, even if it is just one baby step, that moves you toward your goal so you can maintain your momentum.

Step 6: Visualize your goal repeatedly

See it in your mind’s eye as though it were already a reality. The more clear and vivid your mental picture of your goal, the faster it will come into your life.

Step 7: Feel the feeling of success as if your goal were realized at this very moment

Feel the emotion of happiness, satisfaction, and pleasure that you would have once you have achieved your goal. Visualize and feel this success for at least 20 seconds at a time.

Step 8: “Fake it till you make it!”

Confidently behave as if your subconscious mind was already bringing your goal into reality. Accept that you are moving toward your goal and it is moving toward you.

Step 9: Relax your mind

Take time to breathe, pray or mediate each day. Disengage the stress response and engage the relaxation response. A quiet state of mind allows your brain to access newly formed neural pathways.

Step 10: Release your goal to your subconscious mind

When you turn your goal over to the power of the universe and just get out of the way, you will always know the right actions to take at the right time.

Starting today, try tapping into the incredible power of your subconscious mind.Start with just one goal or idea, and practice it continually until you succeed in achieving that goal. Make it a game and have fun with it! The more lightly you hold it, the easier it will be to achieve. By doing so, you will move from the “positive thinking” of the hopeful person to the “positive knowing” of the totally successful person.

Hit reply and let me know what you’re creating!

To your success!
