Are you feeling increasingly starved for time?
You are not alone. Four out of five adults report feeling that they have too much to do and not enough time to do it.
Here is what goes along with feeling starved for time: less joy, poorer health, fewer laughs, weaker relationship bonds, decreased productivity…to name a few.
What a terrible trap to fall into, this notion of time-shortage-induced stress.
Here, we are not going to cover tips and techniques for better time management. In fact, I concur with something I heard in a seminar years ago: it is not possible to manage time, but you can manage your communication efficiency and effectiveness, which frees up space and time.
I urge you to reclaim your day. Be intentional with productivity, leisure, conversations, rest—everything. Make it a goal to have a time-affluent life. As a choice, adopt a mindset similar to what I remember Willie Wonka saying while leading his chocolate factor tour:
“There’s so much time, and so little to do!”
Make the shift to time-affluent living and, in the process, build a happier, more fulfilling life.
