How is Stinking Thinking Stealing Your Time?

PostImage_10_10_19.jpg

My girlfriend often complains about all she has going on and how she never has time to unwind and have moments for herself.

She owns and operates a successful business, and has a family and friends who are constantly pulling on her time.

Finally one day, we stopped and began to do some self-examination.

While she definitely has a full life, time is what you make it.

I love the quote in the Matrix: How can you ever have time, if you don’t take time?

We discovered a couple of things:

Some of her time is being spent on matters less important in the grand scheme of her goals – delaying a decision, questioning her competency and ability.

Some of her time is being spent “thinking” about what needs to be done rather than doing it – overthinking the thing that needs to be done by trying to get more information.

Some of her time time is being spent avoiding what needs to be done – by checking out; i.e. watching tv, having a glass of wine, complaining that there isn’t enough time.

Talk about stinking thinking. You’ll never succeed with this kind of time management practice.

Agreed?
