We all value time. We lament the lack of it & the need of it.
What if we mentally gave ourselves an additional 10 minutes? After all, we all get the same 24 hours don’t we?
What if you left 10 minutes earlier, what would that do? What would that give you? I’ve often observed how rushed life becomes (just visit any city centre at 8.30 on a Monday morning!) it’s a good way of taking stock, feeling organised and calm!
I made the mental adjustment this year and I felt calmer, more relaxed and more assured of getting to where I wanted to go.
I used to think if only I had the time to read more books, I’d get through quite a few. 10 minutes here and there, (that’s all it took as a commitment) and I’ve read over a dozen this year….plan to do the same in 2013.
All in all, providing yourself with the additional 10, whether it’s for a meeting, exercise or reading over the course of a year can provide so much fulfilment from a little mental tinkering at the start of your day.
All the best,
