How often do you say “There just isn’t enough time in the day to do this?” If you are like me, you are always measuring progress against available time on whatever project has your attention. Sometimes it seems that the only solution is to work harder and faster, trying to make things happen before the last grain of sand falls through the hour glass. But haven’t you noticed that the harder and faster you work, the less efficient you can be, and the more mistakes you can make? Isn’t it odd that the more you try to make things happen, the more things tend to fall apart, get delayed, or get off track? And yet, with only so many hours in the day, how can you possibly let up and stop running to the finish line? There IS a better way.

Although the length of the day is set by a finite number of hours, minutes, and seconds, the perception of the passing of time is quite relative. You have certainly been in an enjoyable activity where time passed by very quickly, as well as situations that felt as if time had stopped or at least slowed down significantly. But how can we use perception of time to our advantage so that we can slow time down when we need it, and speed it up when we are bored? Here are some useful tips that I can share on this issue.

  • Start saying to yourself and others “I always have enough time to do the things I need to do.” Say and think these words as often as you can, over and over again. Let the mantra be a connected feeling of fact. Notice that the more you say and believe this, the more time seems to stretch out and allow for the “reality” of more time.
  • Get calm and centered before taking action on anything. This can take a few moments, or you can meditate for longer if you wish. Either way, approach your tasks from a calm and centered state of mind, rather than a frantic “final hour” feeling. You will be way more productive while feeling that you aren’t rushing.
  • Let Law of Attraction align you with help. While the Law of Attraction can’t appear and lick stamps or fold clothes for you, it is more than able to align people, events, and circumstances to help you in all ways. As you think more optimistically, and as you expect things to go well for you more of the time, things will get better for you more of the time. You will have street lights timed perfectly as you sail through traffic, and you will have helpful people asking if they may assist you. You will get parking on the first try, and you will have the resources you need to be efficient. It will take less time to do more, with less effort.
  • Focus on one task at a time. Instead of wasting time refocusing your attention between tasks, let one task be your in-the-moment focus. Enjoy the aspects of the task, and let the task unfold perfectly before you. When you are done with the task, get quiet and decide what the next task is before heading into it without your connection to Source. Get in the Vortex, and then take your next action step in inspiration.
  • Say “I can do anything, but I can’t do everything.” When you let go of having to do everything, you can do better work on the things you have left on your plate. Learn to say “no” when taking on new responsibilities. Be appropriately committed without being grossly over-committed.

It has been said of the Great Tao that it “Does nothing, but leaves nothing undone.”  You can make it you intention to do the same in any day. Don’t worry about what you have to do through your action, and then take inspired action in the moment when it arises. I have had great success using this technique. I just affirm that everything will get done right on time, and then I watch my day unfold magically. Some tasks are completed without me even doing anything, and other jobs become completed with almost no effort, and in very little time. It IS possible to change your relationship to time, and to have all the time you need. Change your focus and thinking, and you will change your perception of time. Enjoy this most amazing day!  CHRIS-GP
