Get back your lost 30 minutes.

We are all looking for more time. Interestingly enough, we all waste time everyday by not doing 3 simple things. Adjust your thinking and doing to the 3 steps below and finds an extra 30 minutes everyday!

1. Spend 5 minutes in “the NOW.” Stop “going through the motions.” Spend 5 minutes every evening taking a quick look at your schedule for the next day and getting the things together that you need to walk out the door with in the morning. If you are on your way home and need gas, get it today, not tomorrow when you are in a rush because you overslept. 5 minutes spent the day or night before in preparation time can literally save you hours each week in reacting time!
2. Write it down! How simple is that, yet how often it is not done. Carry a little notebook of your choice and just write things down. As thoughts enter your mind (calling someone, writing a letter, e-mailing, responding, calling the bank, good ideas, picking up dry cleaning, blah, blah, blah…) jot it down. I do not have to tell you that those thoughts leave your mind faster than they enter.
3. Review your notebook as part of your 5 minutes! In other words, part of #1 above needs to include #2 above. You will be amazed at the “little things” that no longer get missed.

Until tomorrow…
