Time management tips create peak effectiveness – but only if you generate intuitive priorities. Use 5 key questions to stand in your power, aligning your time choices with your priorities each and every day!
You know how effective you are when your priorities are crystal clear. Disjointed parts of your life start to work in unison. This benefits your career, your personal goals, and turns challenges into potent avenues for progress.
Are your priorities unclear or shifting? Draw upon your intuition for help.
The Power Of Your Intuition
Your intuition always provides wise guidance. It flows beneath words, sending its messages through your body. So as you work to align your priorities for peak effectiveness, provide yourself with periods of silent relaxation. These quiet times will help you tune in.
The more you relax, the more you allow subtle messages to bubble up. They may manifest as flashes of insights, or in words to a song. Listen for shifting rhythms as your day proceeds. When old routines are disrupted, new impressions may seem garbled initially. Bit at a time, you can detect and design new patterns that expand your evolving life.
Simple Explorations Yield Profound Discoveries
Keeping a journal is an easy and powerful way to access the insights arising from your intuition. Simply write daily without censoring anything. This welcomes new impressions to surface. Reviewing what you write, especially over few days, can refresh your perspective!
5 Questions To Energize Your Intuition
Asking yourself questions before you start writing can help you prime the pumps. For example, you can invite yourself to journal about the following five topics.
1. What new challenge/opportunity has entered my life?
Record everything that rushes to your mind. Be completely frank. By expressing exactly how you see things, you honor your right to view things honestly and squarely. You are the one in charge.
2. What feelings does this bring up?
Again, reveal your full spectrum of emotions. Your power lies in your completeness. So does your creativity!
3. What feels out of balance?
This is a vitally important question to consider. Influences that upset your equilibrium are essential to assess and explore. Remember that even those forces that you feel threatened by might be avenues to significant growth. Note how much time you spend in areas that feel out of balance.
4. What restores balance for me?
As you record everything that pops into your mind, notice how you feel about each activity you mention.
- Which sharpen your awareness?
- Which do you use to tune out?
- Do you alternate between times of looking inward and reaching out?
- How much time does it take to rebalance?
- Where do you find this time?
You may discover valuable new approaches to add to your tried and true responses.
5. What is my first step in my new dance?
When you progress mindfully, you are much less likely to fall over yourself. How fortunate that your life is lived one moment at a time! Invite yourself to fully occupy the moment, and observe how conditions evolve and unfold.
As you use these exercises, you will discover just how accessible your inner wisdom truly is. By asking yourself powerful questions, you invite your mind to stretch, create, and enter the new dance of your life wholeheartedly. Priorities become clearer, and so does your time use. The more you enrich your priorities by tapping your intuition, the more productivity you will enjoy.© Copyright 2012 Paula Eder, Ph.D.
