303 What Are You Doing?
This is Anne with your Coaching On The Go.
What did you discover in your audit yesterday?
What I want you to do today is to look at this, and continue to keep track of what you do today.
Ideally, you get to do this for an entire week.
When you do it for a week, you get a picture of what a normal part of your life is looking like.
When I did this, I discovered that I worked a lot less than I realized.
I spent a lot more time fretting or thinking about what I was doing or what I was going to do or what I was supposed to do than I actually spent in productivity.
Auditing and keeping track of my week supported me in getting a powerful look at what I was doing with time.
It allowed me to shift and concentrate more during work times.
It allowed me to cut loose when I wasn’t working.
We’ll talk about the value of that over time.
What do you think will happen when you have clarity in your downtime and you have clarity in your work time?
What do you think will happen in your life?
What’s happened in mine is a lot more serendipity is showing up.
When I keep the rigor and the integrity with each aspect of what I plan for the day, it gives me more free time.
I don’t feel like a slave to my calendar, and the calendar feels like it can breathe.
How many times have you looked at a to-do list for the day and you’re tired before you get started?
This has to do with how you are allotting your time and how you’re allowing yourself to tarnish the purity of each segment that you’ve created.
Trevor Blake has a wrote “The Five Hour Workday”.
Believe it or not, the billionaires and millionaires I speak to in my global entrepreneurial group follow a very similar schedule to what Trevor writes about in “The Five-Hour Workday”.
They have a couple of blocks of time that are one or 2 hours followed by an equal amount of time walking out in nature, taking a long lunch, having a nap, and coming back.
You’ll probably be asking me questions like, “How can I run a company when I’m only working 5 hours?”
There’s a magic that happens when you have a balance in the way you’re spending time.
When you honor your downtime as much as you honor your on-task work time you will be amazed at what shows up.
Today’s call to action is to continue documenting what you do for the day.
Note the efficiency or inefficiency of your day.
Just take a look at it.
Continue to be curious.
I would love for you to do this for an entire week while I continue coaching through the aspects of a five-hour workday, on and off time, having integrity with what you say you’re going to do in the calendar, and other paradigms around exceptional use of time.
Have a beautiful day.
