Find An Extra Hour Daily To Transform Your Life

No comments :

     You are already thinking that this is impossible as your day is already full – you go to bed late and still don’t have everything done, right? Well, I think the same way occasionally until I make time to review my time. But, have you taken a few minutes to really review your schedule and activities to see if you can find an hour for yourself by stealing a little bit of time from other activities?
     Everyone needs a little quiet time because, without it, stress, depression, and anxiety tend to creep into our lives. Creating an extra hour each day for reflection can really pay off over time. You’ll realize that the standard of your life improves after you create time to mirror on your goals, dreams, and needs.
    Focusing your mind on what is most important to you, enables you to go after those dreams with a passion and bring them to life. Try these ideas to find that extra time to reflect:
    Re-purpose some of your TV time.
      Television is a significant time waster. Most people average 4+ hours of TV per day. If that’s you, this is an easy place to find an hour.
  Spend less time on the internet.
     The net is a great source of information, but it’s also an easy place to spend a lot of unproductive time. For example, how much time do you spend on social media websites reading about what your friends are having for dinner? Really? Just cut back and use the time for yourself.
  Early to bed, early to rise… 
     If you can get up an hour earlier, that’s an hour you have to yourself. There’s something quiet and peaceful about the morning that you don’t get at other times of the day.
  Limit your email time.
      Plan a specific amount of time, once per day, to check and reply to emails.
 Cut out some shopping.
      Drop all your shopping (except grocery shopping) for a month. It’s just a month. You can go for a month without buying anything, can’t you? If that seems like too long, try two weeks.
 Drop some of the extraneous after work activities.
       Instead of all the other things you might have planned, use some of this time for yourself.
 Ration your reading time.
      Keep the most important parts of your reading activity and limit the non-essential reading to a set amount of time each day.
 Cut down on your playtime. 
     It’s certainly important for your wellbeing to take time to relax and participate in activities that you enjoy. However, if you find that you play video games for hours at a time or spend frequent evenings out on the town, perhaps you can shave a little of this time off for reflection.
      These are 8 ways you can find another hour, and you can easily find 8 more. If you use just 4 of these ideas each day, you would only have to cut out 15 minutes of each activity to find your hour.

How can you use that hour to create a more fulfilling life? Try these tips:

1. Review your goals.
    Remind yourself of your goals every day. How are things progressing? Is your plan to reach your goals moving you forward? Just reading them each day is helpful.
2. Think about your day.
    Each day, ask yourself what you’ve learned. What did you do well? What mistakes did you make? Can you make choices that serve you better? How? What are you grateful for today?
Imagine if each day were a little better than the last, on the average. What would your life be like a year from now?
3. Meditate. Escape the hustle and bustle of life and quiet your mind.
4. Journal.
   You’ll be shocked at how much you can learn about yourself when you write down your feelings. Plus, a journal gives you a venue to write about your challenges, reduce your stress about them, and work through them to find solutions.

    Give yourself the gift of an extra hour each day for reflection. An hour a day can be transformational – find your hour and take advantage of it.

      Two years ago I suffered low grade chronic fatigue syndrome symptoms. So energy is now a precious commodity to me. Health issues are one thing, but there are some other energy zappers and power parasites we can look at.
   Have you ever noticed, that different tasks require different types of energy? Some things don’t require much energy at all, like watching t.v. At The other end of the scale, are things that require more energy or focus, such as book work or phoning for me.
   Also have you ever noticed that it’s impossible to be depressed when you have good energy! Energy is a fragile thing some days.

Tips To Getting Things Done With Others Through Mutual Trust And Understanding


   Mutual Trust

    Mutual trust is the basic ingredient of all honest and effective human relationships. The husband and wife, the employer and employee, the customer and salesperson, the student and teacher, and members of the same team must be fastened with the bond of mutual trust or the relationship becomes ineffective.
    Mutual trust is not always easy to adopt. The other person may be disagreeable, unfriendly, unlikable, a rival, or do things which you oppose.It may require an extra measure of mental discipline to ignore the other person’s negative characteristics and identify the real person, the person of ability and basic goodness. You may be hurt occasionally by individuals who violate the trust placed in them.
"Leadership without mutual trust is a contradiction in terms."
Stephen Covey
    But the benefits of mutual trust is far outweigh the small number of incidents in which it proves difficult or a disadvantage.
  Mutual trust means each person having trust in the other. If you want to achieve this relationship with others then it must begin with you. You must be basically honest. Honesty crops out into sincerity. And sincerity is the mold for mutual trust. 
    Doctors must have sincerity to instill confidence in their patients; lawyers must have it to create rapport with clients; executives must have it to inspire employees; salespeople must have it to persuade customers to buy; great politicians have attracted votes with it. 
   Sincere people are those who have ideals, values, beliefs and conform to them. They project these characteristics to others.


Make it Easy for People to Work with You

    People are more effective, more energetic, when working with others they like. So you will get what you want out of life only if you are able to get along with people. Getting along with others means that they like you and will do things for you. In other words, they react positively to your personality. Your personality is nothing more nor less than your attitudes in action. It is the way you communicate your thoughts about others and yourself. Here are some tips  to make your personality pleasing, one that creates positive reactions in others:

1.. To have a friend, be one.
2. The greatest hunger that people have is to be needed, wanted, and loved. Help satisfy , those feelings in others. 
3. Don’t try to impress others. Let them impress you.
 4. Be kind to people. You can’t always love them, but you can be kind to them.
 5. Learn to like yourself. Others will respond to you the way you respond to yourself. 
6. Be enthusiastic. Nothing significant was ever achieved without enthusiasm-including deep, rich human relationships. 
7. Be positive. Positive people attract others; negative people repel others. 
8. Do things to make people feel important. Write a letter. Give a compliment. Say, “Thank you.” Praise. Encourage. Support. Cooperate. 
9. Sticking up for your “rights” is great, but do you always have to be right? Letting the other person be right once in a while will keep friendships warm. 
10. Be a good listener. You can have a greater effect on others by the way that you listen rather than by the way that you talk. 
11. Unless you can say something worthy about a person, say nothing. 
12. Call a person by name. Use it often in your conversation. 
13. Smile. Be pleasant. Talk about the brighter things in life. 
14. Avoid arguments. 
15. If you’re going to make fun of someone, make sure it’s you. 
16. Help people like themselves. The greatest compliment someone can give you is to say, “I like myself better when I’m with you.” 
17. Be genuinely interested in others. Get them to talk about themselves. Ask for their opinions, ideas, view points.


Admit Your Mistakes

      If you know the other person will admit being wrong, you feel more secure in that relationship. You have more trust in that person. Others will feel the same way about you if they know you are honest enough to admit it when you’re wrong.
     These words are wondrously refreshing and too little heard: “I made a mistake.” “I am wrong.”
“I admit I was in error.”
      What a rare quality that is in people! Especially if the admission was made about something that would not otherwise be noticed.

    Try saying to your family when you’re on the losing end of a discussion, “You are right and I am wrong!” 
    Step forward on your job and say, “I have made an error. I would like your advice and help to correct it!” 
    Try saying to your customer, “I don’t know,” or “This mistake is mine.” Don’t shift it on to the factory, the billing department, or that poor secretary trying to read your orders.

Never put off for tomorrow, what you can do today

No comments :
Procrastination means delaying work or several tasks for a later time.           Everyone procrastinates. Sometimes it’s fun to procrastinate. Sometimes waiting until just before a deadline is very motivating. And sometimes procrastination is even necessary—as a way to put off a dreaded task until we feel more energetic, prepared, or able to do it.
But sooner or later, chronic procrastinating will begin to hamper job performance. It will also affect our mood and state of mind by generating worry, fear, or added stress. Perhaps most serious for people in a leadership position, procrastinating may cause our peers and employees to feel that we’re holding up progress.
      If procrastination has become a problem for you—and you know who you try these to change your behavior so you can be more productive. An added benefit is that you’ll feel more upbeat, less worried and stressed, and more confident about your reputation and effectiveness.
 Put it in writing.
 Write down the task you’ve been putting off. Doing this brings the project to the front of your mind so you can’t easily ignore it.
