Hello Seven Client | Founder | Ezer + CO.
I've never met a woman who's twiddling her thumbs, wondering how to spend her time. We are busier than ever -– juggling work, home, and family. We're connected all the time, yet often disconnected from what matters most to us.
Whenever you say, “I don't have enough time,” there's at least one of the following problems
1. You're DISTRACTED by unimportant things and tasks.
2. You're busy doing what OTHER PEOPLE want from you, not what you want and need to do.
3. You don't WANT to do it or make time for it.
4. You don't know HOW to shift your time so that you have time for what matters most.
5. You're operating out of FEAR for what it'll cost you.
6. You don't have good HABITS AND PRACTICES to manage your time better.
These excuses keep you from investing your time in what matters most in your life and
leadership. But you have the capacity to create more time and get different results, and it's easier than you think!
Every human being has 268 hours every week, 24 hours every day. Time is the only equitable
resource on the planet. It's how you invest your time that determines to what degree you live and lead with wholeness.
If you want to create more time in your life and leadership, you have to do things differently.
The purpose of this exercise is to deliberately decide how you're going to use the time you've been given every day in a more effective way to get the results you want in your life and leadership.
When you become the boss of your time, you free up time you never knew you had. You learn to live more freely and lightly. You're more energized, creative, and joyful. You become more creative in solving problems and find ways to make progress on your goal. You prioritize what matters most to you and still manage to achieve everything that's intended for you to do.
The truth is that you have ALL the time you need to achieve everything God has for you. You were created to live and lead with wholeness and your time is a critical component. It's up to you to use that time well.
