When we think about time, it’s the one resource we will never get back.
We can earn more money, buy more things, and make new friends. Time? It is finite for us all.
And have you ever told yourself that you don’t have time to exercise, make healthy meals, clean house, etc?
I would bet money that we are all guilty of “not having enough time” to do something.
In the book, “Can’t Hurt Me: Master Your Mind and Defy the Odds,” author David Goggins offers a list of challenges, one at the end of each chapter.
David Goggins is an unbelievable human being, and his book is an inspiration for living up to your greatest potential. NOTE: He is honest and raw. No sugar coating anything.
Since Lent (a period of 40 days that Christians observe from Ash Wednesday to Easter) began yesterday, I’ve decided that this is the perfect time to implement the challenge on scheduling.
This is a 3-week challenge, so I figure I should be able to master this during the 6 weeks of Lent.
Here it is:
Week 1: Take notes on your daily routines and habits. How often are you on your phone or watching TV? How long do you take to eat and commute to work?
Week 2: Build a schedule to optimize your time. Use 15–30 minute block intervals. When you work, only focus on one thing at a time.
Week 3: Your schedule should be optimized!
End Goal: Stop wasting time. Maximize your effort in what you do every day without sacrificing sleep.
Sounds pretty simple. I already know that this will be a very revealing challenge, and I’m in.
Would you like to join me? If you’re in this with me, I’d love to hear from you. Send me an email and let me know your plan.
What will you do with your newly created time? I’m excited to see what’s possible.
Whatever ways you choose to use the time between now and Easter, may it be time well lived.
You’ll never see this Lent again.
Blessings and love,
“Only you can master your mind, which is what it takes to live a bold life filled with accomplishments most people consider beyond their capability.”
