Lack of direction vs lack of time
Your problem isn’t lack of time… its lack of clear priorities – Paul Lucas
“I’m so busy, I don’t have time to do anything,” they say, ironically. A classic excuse made by people is if their focus is not in the right direction. Acknowledge that you are making an excuse; this is one of the daintiest things you can do for yourself to improve. Everything is possible if we select the right choice. It all comes down to your drive to achieve the objective. Concentration should be the next step once you have set your objective.
Making the best productive day with a clear cut time frame is a challenge. Our preferences differ every day. That is, we get confused as to which task should be prioritised; a lack of direction in our aim. Your preferences should be in line with your day-to-day life and personal objectives. These are not achievable if your priorities keep shifting. For many, health should be a top aim followed by family and work.
Are you one of those people who one day woke up with a lot of energy and decided to get exercise, diet, complete the tasks that have been nagging at the back of your mind for almost a decade? Good for you! But then felt the energy falling after a few weeks of output? Take charge of your destiny and get the job done. Because you are your boss, remember that you may give yourself some leeway now and again to prevent exhaustion. This will help you avoid relapsing to your unpleasant cycle. Rather than letting the day plan you, you should plan the day.
That pattern is universal, but only a few people are aware of it. Recognize where you’re distracted and restore yourself to the decided pattern. Understanding what you want to accomplish with your life is a big part of why you can’t manage your time. You can get an idea through the blog; define yourself for the future. What are my plans? And how can I get there? If you’re continually struggling with productivity and don’t seem to be moving forward in life, ask yourself those two questions.
Lack of direction, not lack of time, is the problem. We all have twenty-four hour days– Zig Ziglar, American author, salesman, and motivational speaker.
