I dream of a better, fulfilling life. We all do. But How can we achieve it? Only dreaming is not enough.
I ask myself a lot of questions like: How am I going to succeed? Am I intentional enough? One thing I know for sure – it won’t happen on accident!
Let’s break down hourly one day and see how do I spend it.
I am usually trying to sleep around 8 hours a day. Working hours last 9 hours ( normally 8 hours work + 1 hour lunch break). Let’s add another 2 hours for travelling to work, breaks, commuting or in between time.
So, that makes 8 hours for some rest (we need our beauty sleep) and another 11 for travel/work.
I still have 5 hours left so, I rush back home to spend another 2 hours with family, friends, dog, cat, hamster, parrot, supermarket, cause I’ve run out of eggs ( social time you know)…
In total that makes:
8 hours – sleep
11 hours – work/transport
2 hours – family/social time
I still have 3 hours left
How am I spending it?
Watching Netflix, scrolling to social media, lying on the couch, eating junk food, drinking beer/wine. All these things are very good for stress relief but I have a feeling that I am loosing precious time. Instead of expressing my creativity and give something to the world I am drowning it in wine and laziness. I somehow keep myself away from the other stuff, like learning new things, taking a course, studying, writing, anything that will help me become better in my passion and skills.
Are you the same? Rushing home to do nothing?
Do you feel it is time for a change?
What you spend your time on, says a lot about yourself.
