This learning path is about more than just time management, although that is an essential tool in winning your day. This path is the first step in stretching your self to get more from each moment.
Just as we shouldn't spend money frivolously on things that do not bring us sustaining joy, we should consider our time in the same vein. Although I wholeheartedly believe we have more control of our time than we think, our base beliefs about its scarcity also contributes to how much we perceive we have. Time, like money, requires intentional work and a commitment to making it work for you.
There has to be a better way. Most people hold on to too many tasks and are afraid to delegate. Delegating even the smallest tasks can change the way your day unfolds. Furthermore, remember there is no penalty if you also chose not to complete everything you previously agreed to. Allow yourself the freedom and grace to 'delete' tasks and choose to add fun in your day.
“No person would give up even an inch of their estate, and the slightest dispute with a neighbor can mean hell to pay; yet we easily let others encroach on our lives—worse, we often pave the way for those who will take it over. No person hands out their money to passersby, but to how many do each of us hand out our lives! We’re tight-fisted with property and money, yet think too little of wasting time, the one thing about which we should all be the toughest misers.” — Seneca the Younger
