“The time you enjoy wasting is not wasted time.”   Bertrand Russell

Our meditation today is about learning to become a master of your time. The last letter in S-M-A-R-T is T for “time limits.” Even though our true self is timeless, we live and experience in sequential time. For that reason we must respect and manage our time each day skillfully so that we synchronize our biorhythms with Nature. Dr. Daniel Siegel looked at how we can use our time so that it supports our wellbeing and inner growth. He list seven ways to spend time:

  • Sleep time – Getting a full night’s restful sleep
  • Physical time – Taking time to move and let your body be active
  • Focus time – Being alone for a while to concentrate on what matters to you
  • Time in – Taking time for meditation, prayer, or self-reflection
  • Time out – Setting aside time to simply to be here and rest into existence
  • Play time – Time to have fun and enjoy yourself
  • Connecting time – Intimate private time between you and those you love and care for

Today’s meditation will synchronize individual awareness with the timing and rhythm of the universe.

1.) Take one of your worthy goals and set a time frame for attaining a major step toward that goal. For example, with the goal of having more friends, you might give yourself a month to make three new acquaintances. Write down your goal, your next step, and the time frame to get there.

Due to the fact that I believe in protecting your vision, goals, and plans. I’m opting to keep this one in my personal journal. I have a specific goal in mind and a concrete time frame in which I will have it completed. This goal is my main focus as I wrap up current projects that I have been working on. The goal is solid, the next step is just to get it done, and the time frame is within the next month.

2.) List all the different activities that apportion your time: work time, play time, quiet time, social time, down time, physical time, and sleep time. Next to each area, write down how much time you give yourself for that activity each day.

  • Work Time: 8-12 hours daily
  • Play Time: 1 hour or so maybe
  • Quiet Time: 2-3 hours daily
  • Social Time: 3-4 hours daily
  • Physical Time: Less than a hour daily
  • Sleep Time: 3-4 hours daily

3.) Write down next to each activity how that period of time nurtures you, and how it enriches the quality of your day rather than detracts from it.

  • Work Time: Allows growth in m business and guides me closer to my vision
  • Play Time: Keeps me young and allows me to connect with the younger ones in my family
  • Quiet Time: Allows time for reflection, prayer, meditation, and processing.
  • Social Time: Keeps me in communication with others and not isolated and out of touch with my surroundings.
  • Physical Time: Keeps me healthy and provides for clear thinking.
  • Sleep Time: Rejuvenation of my body, mind, and spirit.

4.) Daily Reflection:

By breaking down the components of my day like this I can see where time is being wasted or not used efficiently and where it can be redistributed. I also am forced to prioritize my time according to the time constraints that each day provides. When you cast through your day without direction and/or purpose the days can seem long. However, when you have an agenda to follow and goals to reach you come realize it’s actually not as much time in the day as you may have previously imagined. Yes, 24 hours is a lot but when you factor in work, interaction with others, and time for yourself the minutes become scarce. Don’t be afraid to prioritize your time spent according to what best fits your goals and vision for your life but also keep in mind that balance is essential too. It’s okay to be selfish with your time but have good reasoning for it. Let the things you are investing your time into be worth the sacrifices you are willing to make.

Affirmed: I will prioritize my time according to the vision I have for myself and my life. I will do so by writing down a schedule based each individual activity and the time I feel is necessary to invest in that activity daily. Being organized will free up more time for me to enjoy myself and my surroundings.
