“Be aware if you have places of  guilt and shame about the amount of time that you have and commit to not letting that shame and guilt get in the way of optimizing the time that you do have. ”

-Naphtali Roberts

If you’ve heard it once, you’ve heard it a million times; the secret to your success is just good time management. So much easier said than done! As creatives, a linear perspective of time is not always natural to us and can feel inhibiting to our creative nature. I get it and I want to encourage you that you don’t have to stay stuck. Ditch the shame and frustration! You really don’t need to be better at time management skills. You just need to shift your focus to time optimization

If this is a concept that feels unfamiliar, I am going to walk you through some guiding questions to help you decide how you can best spend the time you have. You can do this by first getting real about how much time you have to work with. Then it’s just a matter of connecting that chunk of time with your specific goals. Listen in and I’ll share how! 

Mindfulness Takeaways

  • Good time management is not a magic bullet, but we can still consider the processes are systems that allow for the most creative potential on a regular basis. 
  • You can’t optimize your time if you aren’t realistic about how much time you have to work with. Be honest if it’s 5 min or 50 min. 
  • To begin optimizing your time, ask yourself these guiding questions:
  1. What is/are the most significant goal(s) in my business right now? 
  2. How much time do I have each day or week to work towards my goal? 
  3. How can I use this (1 hour, 5 min) in a way that is going to take me one step closer to my goals? 
  4. What environment is going to allow me to optimize that time?
