16 Mar 061. Making Time To Build The Lifestyle That You Want
How often do we say to ourselves or others that we just don’t have enough time? We all have busy lives, balancing work and family, running businesses, or going to school. How can we make the time for ourselves in our busy schedules, time for working out, and time for doing what we love? If you have asked yourself this question, listen in on this episode about making time.
In this episode, Andrew highlights an inspiring TED Talk by Laura Vanderkam on making time for your priorities. In Laura’s TED talk, she takes a deep dive into the fact that when we say that we don’t have time, it actually means that we’re not making it a priority. What if we can all see what our priorities are and put them first? She says, “We don’t build the lives we want by saving time. We build the lives we want, and time saves itself.”
Andrew invites all of us to see what’s been on the back-burner. How can we utilize our time a little better and make our time more efficient so that we can do the things we want to do? How can we make more time for taking care of ourselves?
Listen in on this episode to learn how to make time more elastic. Laura emphasizes that time will stretch to accommodate what we put into it. The first step is to see what your highest priorities are. Look ahead in the next year and decide what you would like to focus on the most in your professional life and in your personal life. What do you want to accomplish the most out of your professional life? What do you want to accomplish the most with your family life? What would make you the proudest to accomplish by the end of the year?
When it comes to your fitness goals, what could you add to your routines that would elevate your performance? What can you incorporate into your workouts that will elevate your performance that perhaps you’ve been skipping to save time? How can we utilize our time better to meet our fitness and nutrition goals?
No matter what area your goals are in, this episode is for anybody who wants to make more time and build the life you want. Also, try listening in on Laura Vanderkam’s TED talk:
