Let’s talk about time management or soaring time. What I call, soaring like a bird into creation, soaring into dreams or soaring toward your goal.
Like me, there is always a drag on one’s time to do the things that our heart calls for. And we find we get angry, frustrated and we might resent others/things who are taking too much of our time away from it. And these feelings might be toward those that we have a legitimate responsibility toward. It is just life, many say.
If you have a need for better time management, if you can’t get going on a goal, you might not want to hear this, but it is your own fault. One of my many mentors explained that with all goals in life the only way to get time managed is to create it.
There are numerous reasons for why you might be suffering from a lack of time management. It may need deeper attention from a counselor, priest, or just a good venting session with a friend to clear the cob webs, and then begin again.
Yet, as a starting point one must create the environment to begin and allow the habit to form. Dinner, dishes, work, groceries or making lunches for family have become a habit in your life… why can’t a goal replace and squeeze into that time somehow?
You can decide this, believe me. Let go of perfection and ask for others to pick up the pieces.
Here is a starting point.
Give yourself time to think about it, check your other obligations against it and wait for the feeling – the soul must say “yes, this is what I want to do.”
Recently, I was asked to volunteer my time. I was getting calls and text daily to commit myself.
All I was thinking…I have no time. I want to do it but how?
I did not want to distract myself from my top priorities, plus, I was not so sure the work I would be doing would lead toward a message I wanted to align myself with.
So I waited… and I am glad to say moving forward my heart is 100% in the cause now. I scheduled the volunteering, it does not conflict with what my priorities are and I feel good.
I feel confident, because I defined my time.
As a squiggly, a top priority is to dream, hence soaring time. I have to do this, just like eating, to generate new creative ideas.
This is a deserved time. Who else but you can make this time to complete your goal?
Most important, if you don’t do it as planned, don’t stop, just bend. Be kind to yourself. If it did not work one day, just begin again the next day!
