“It’s Q & A Tuesday time b-tches! I don’t know if we can do that.
Hey, it’s Marie Forleo here with a 'Hell, yeah! So the mother “bleep”, ooh. I can’t say that.”
Hey, it’s Marie here with another Q & A Tuesday!
Q: So today’s question is from Jessica and Jessica writes:
“When you get loads of great opportunities in your life, things that you want to do and
hobbies, and simply not enough hours in the day. How do you really know what to spend
your time on? I’m busy constantly and very efficient but stuck feeling that I could have
done more or didn’t get enough done. When there’s more time, I’ll do x, y, and z
but will there really ever be more time?”
A: Every creative person I know including myself struggles with that feeling like, “Oh,
my God, I coulda got more done,” or “There’s not enough hours in the day!” But something
in your question gave me a clue that we can dive a little deeper here and give you some
wisdom that most people skip over. And this is what it is, that feeling of feeling stuck
that you haven’t got enough done, it’s really a thought.
If all of us, if we listen to our minds you’ll notice that our minds tell us the same junk
over and over and over again. Really repetitive thought loops and unfortunately most of us
believe those thoughts are us and we believe that they’re true. So when they say, “Oh,
my God, I coulda gotten more done,” or “Oh, my God, I wish I had more time.”
We believe that to be true and we stress ourselves out.
If we listen to minds long enough, all of that boils down to one common threat. That
threat is we suck and we’re never doing enough. Deepak Chopra one of my favorite authors,
I love to retweet his tweets because he’s really smart. He once quoted a study that
says, “We human beings have an average of 65,000 thoughts per day. Ninety-five percent
of those thoughts are the same thoughts we had the day before and the day before that,
and the day before that and so on and so forth.”
What does that mean? That means that we’re all talking to ourselves about the same junk
over and over again. It just doesn’t change and if you’re honest with yourself and you
really take a look, you’ll know that to be true for you too.
It’s time for rr..rr..rr..rr reframe yo!
Here’s the reframe, next time you notice you’re having the thought, “I didn’t
get enough done today,” I want you to say this to yourself instead “I got the perfect amount
done today.” Because I’ll tell you this, if you start disengaging from believing the
voice in your head to be true and who you are, and put a little space in between you
and that nasty little voice. You’re going to start dealing with reality which is different
then what you tell yourself and you’re going to be a lot more empowered to get more done,
and actually be satisfied and happy with your life.
Now, let’s break it down and get practical so we can help you figure out if you’re
really spending time on what’s most important to you because after all, your time is your
life. So here’s a simple exercise, I want you to get out a piece of paper and a pen,
and you’re going to write down the following: list your Top five priorities in life, whatever
they are for you. So for example, maybe number one is love and intimacy; number two is your
business or your career; number three are family and friends, perhaps number four is
health and spirituality and maybe number five, who knows, creativity.
But the point is write down your Top five in order of most importance. Now, take a look
back over your calendar; over the last 30 days and see did you actually spend time on
your Top five priorities? Is there a mismatch between what you say is important and how
you actually spend your time? If there is any kind of mismatch between what you say
is important and how you spend your time, you just got to get it straight, yo!
So what does that mean? It means get honest with what’s really important to you and
stop guilt tripping yourself if it doesn’t line up with what you say should be important.
Or on the flipside, if what you say is important really is important but that’s not how you’re
spending your time. Make some changes in your schedule and you’ll be all set.
That’s what I got to say about how to manage everything that you want to do in relation
to your time. So Jessica, thank you so much for your question. If you like this video,
