Time management tips find you new time. Yet it’s how you actually use each moment that promises to reshape your life. By embracing the following suggestions, you will fundamentally transform your relationship with time.
If you stop and think about it, isn’t it striking that we give ourselves the gift of celebrating newness so infrequently? Take just a second to tally how many times a year you celebrate newness, beyond New Year’s Day. Given the uniqueness of each moment of each day, perhaps we’re selling ourselves short!
“With the new day comes new strength and new thoughts.”
Eleanor Roosevelt uttered this classic sentiment. More significantly, she lived by this ideal, earning worldwide devotion. By forging lessons from countless personal and political setbacks, she constantly remade herself.
It was her self-renewal that made each moment new.
It’s so very energizing and appropriate to frame each day as a new beginning. If you greet today as an opportunity to challenge yourself, you will never be disappointed.
To Embrace The New, Learn From The Old.
Are you eager to leave behind old baggage? Remember, you are attached to it until you extract its lessons. Profound learning transforms you.
So greet the newness of this particular day with renewed commitment to grow beyond your current limited understanding of yourself. As Eleanor Roosevelt reminds us, “You must do the things you think you cannot do.”
Are you willing to give yourself the comfort and intensity of self intimacy? This is truly the potential of self-renewal.
How You Perceive Your Time Transforms It.
When you awaken to a new morning and frame it as the adventure it is, you immediately feel energized and excited about what is to come. And because you are seeing things this way, each moment can open in new directions.
Of course, this isn’t a one-time decision, but a choice made repeatedly throughout the day. Creating a personal mantra helps. With all the inspirational quotations available, you can collect a few, select your favorite or better yet, develop one unique to you. One of my personal favorites is, “How can I challenge myself today?”
The following quote is inspirational whenever you find yourself procrastinating.
“Do not wait until the conditions are perfect to begin. Beginning makes the conditions perfect.”
So, expand your potential by regularly outgrowing your comfort zone. Do you choose to find time for the amazing adventure of this new day? It’s a choice that changes everything!© Copyright 2012 Paula Eder, Ph.D.
