There are never enough hours in the day is the modern cry for overwhelmed people everywhere. It seems like you can’t get everything done and you’re always lagging behind where you need to be. Your life is a hot mess compared to the men and women who seem to have it all dialed in.
The fact is, Oprah, Kim Kardashian-West, and those Instagram influencers all have the same number of hours in the day as you. So why can’t you accomplish at the same level?
Not only do you have the same number of hours in a day as a celebrity, you also often have the choices that they do. The difference might be in the choices they make versus the choices you’re making.
Let’s dive deeper: Here are some of the choices that can make or break the time you have in a day.
When you sleep- Getting proper sleep is a contributor to the number of productive hours you have during the day. Making good choices about when you go to bed, when you get up, and what distractions you allow that interrupt your sleep might be affecting your productivity.
What you eat- food equals energy; it’s that simple. If your diet is high in salt, fat, and sugar, you likely won’t have the energy or brainpower to make the most of your time. A poor diet leads to brain fog and sense of being tired all. the. time.
Who you hang out with- One thing’s for sure, Oprah surrounds herself with high-quality people. Being amongst groups of movers-and-shakers is motivating. It’s hard to be a slacker when the people around you sleep well, eat well, and strive to be their best. Who you keep company with at work, at home, and when you recreate impacts your use of time.
There are three things that people who maximize their time do well…
People who make the most of their time do the things that need to be done that only they can do, they delegate things that can be done by others, and they automate things that are routine and zap time from the day. This is one of the reasons that it seems like Oprah has more time than the average person when, in fact, she can’t defy the laws of time and space.
Use your time wisely and make good choices with the time you have each day. Soon, you’ll have more time than you ever thought possible.
