How To Make The Most Of Your Time

I like a lot of the suggestions in this presentation. There are some great tips in there but there is one that wasn’t spelled out in detail.

Take time for yourself.

I am talking about scheduling time to do nothing but something that you find relaxing and enjoyable. That is one of the best ways to recharge your batteries and put yourself in a position to make more use of your time.

Why?

Because life is meant to be lived and experienced. Sometimes in our effort not to waste time we miss or forget that and it is to our detriment.

What do you think?

    The older I get, the harder that is. I think when we are younger, we think we have all the time in the world–and in a sense, if we are lucky, we kinda do. Nowadays I seem obsessed with all the things I need to do and should do and want to do that I cannot sit still–it drives me crazy, because I want to keep up physically with all the zillions of thoughts running through my brain. I can’t tell you when the last time was that I was able to sit through an entire movie or even a television episode without getting up after a few minutes and tending to something around the house. But I agree with you, Joshua. We need those moments to just chill and do nothing, if not to sleep, then to just recharge our batteries, to find a way to enjoy the NOW.
    I really ought to dust off one of my guitars and just play it, just to enjoy the experience. That always helped to settle me down into the present like nothing else.

      I agree. Youth provides us with this sense of a never ending road filled with time, endless amounts of it.

      I never worried about not having time to do more because I always felt like I had the aforementioned endless amounts of it.

      Now it takes effort to relax and not try to do 3 things at once because that to do list never gets shorter.

    Completely agree, mate – we seem so determined to fill our quiet moments with even more ways to stay productive. Which just counters the very fact these are quiet moments to begin with…
