Efficiency and patience. Life is what you make of it.
Last year blessed me with dynamic relationships in a budding collective of untamed creators, where we steadily (sometimes stubbornly) drive each other to reach our handful of life and career goals. Unfolding 2020 together at Lazy Turtle Group has been more than sleepless nights and clench-worthy anticipation, it has helped me streamline and visualize life landmarks as attainable, at the tip of my fingers.
How do I use time wisely?
1. You have 24 hours to make it happen.
If you want it enough, extend your efforts a little further each day and you’re there. Prioritize active goals that by completing, will drive you to progress towards achieving passive goals. Active goals I define as short term goals that can be done in a matter of hours or less, whereas passive goals are those life landmarks. Take advantage of the 24 hours in your day by creating active, reasonable goals. Short term “goals” can be anything from working out for an hour or getting out of the house! Give yourself some credit. Step by step and you are there. Catch you on the flip side!
2. Be patient with yourself.
Some things just don’t happen overnight. So you’ve put in the effort, but you haven’t met your goals yet? Be patient. Do not rush the work you put in if it is careless or without good intention and heart. If you truly put in the effort, you would be comfortable with letting the clocks run while you sleep. Take care of your mind and body; without them, your goals carry no value.
3. Bask in gratitude.
In your aimless hurry to rush down the timeline, take a minute out of your 24 hours to appreciate how far you have come. Praise your work ethic and attempts at bettering yourself, while acknowledging all of the hardships it took to get to where you are at this exact moment. Time is fleeting— bask in gratitude for the minutes that come and go.
