Come Into the Present Moment
To be in the present moment
(Preferably done with closed eyes, but can be done with eyes open)
Simply become aware of the rising and the falling of your breath (3 breaths)
Now allow yourself to receive the breath. Don't take the breath in, receive it. (Realize the breath is a gift. We have done nothing to earn our breath). So we receive it and then let go of it. (The breath is the perfect metaphor for life: we have to let go - create space - in order to receive).(3 breaths)
We now feel the wave of the breath throughout our whole body. When our breath moves, our whole body moves. We can feel this as a wave. (3 breaths) (We may need to adjust our body position to experience this - in other words it is more difficult if we are slumping or have our legs crossed.) (Can be done at anytime during the day as a mini-break).
Decide what is really important to you. And do everything you can to create time for it.
We always find time for what really matters to us.share
The Pareto Principle (also known as the 80/20 Rule) states that 20% of our effort is responsible for 80% of results.
In other words, most results are determined by a small number of actions. Consider how you can apply the Pareto Principle to your day. What is the least amount of effort you can use to get the biggest result?Learn More share
Even though many of us feel we don’t have enough time, everyone on the planet has 24 hours a day.
Look at your discretionary time and make a small change in how you use it.

Identify what your greatest distraction is and put it aside for a designated period of time.
(If it’s checking social media, use an app that blocks those sites for whatever time you need to focus on a project.)Learn More share
We always seem to have time for our to-do list or the next distraction. But how about scheduling a meeting for yourself? Have a specific agenda about what you want to cover.
For example, identify what needs completing, or what's dragging on you that if handled will free up your energy. And also remember that you can complete a project by dropping it (if the project no longer has value).Learn More share
The bad news is time flies.
The good news is you're the pilot.
Musicians, like golfers, have to put their minds in the right place – trusting, confident, enjoying the pressure, being in the present. And so forth. Otherwise, no amount of practice or “Time management” will make them better.
The same is true in all professions: if you’re stuck in the Training Mindset, evaluating yourself, or thinking in the past or future, you will not perform up to your potential. You will waste a lot of time, be an inefficient performer, and likely assume you need to manage your time better. In reality you need to manage your thinking better.
Time is the most valuable coin in your life. You and you alone will determine how that coin will be spent. Be careful that you do not let other people spend it for you.
