So lets get into my top tips for making more time for your goals!
1. Be A Morning Bird
This has got to be my top tip. In my opinion it is the most valuable tip you can implement into your life. By getting up an hour to 90 minutes earlier then you give yourself more time to work on your goals.
Not only does this give you more time but in the mornings you will be less interptued by your phone or people instead you will give yourself undistracted time to work on your goals.
Waking up early and working on your goals is one of the best ways to set your focus for your day and motivate you to achieve your goal.
2. Learn When Your Communiting
I always use the time when I’m communiting to work or walking to the gym or sitting on a bus to learn, to brainstorm and to read. For example even if your driving to work you can download some books from audible and listen to self-development books or books in the area oyur goal is in. If your goal is to learn a new laungage you could listen to a learning tape on your phone whilst walking to the gym.
Really try and find unused time where you could squeeze in a little bit of time to work on yourself and become better at achieving your goals!
3. Identify How You Spend Your Week
For 7 days really try and audit how you spend your day to day life. Keep track in a journal all the tasks and things you do during the day. This is a perfect way to identify how long you spend scrolling through social media on your phone or how long you spend watching TV. It allows you to identify time that you waste during your day. At the end of tracking your week, add up any unused or wasted time and determine how you can better utilise those minutes or hours!
4. Become A Scheduling Goddess
One of the best ways to ensure that you have time to complete a certain goal is to work how much time every day or every week you need to spend on that goal. Then schedule in a section of your day that you will focus purely on that goal. This will allow you to have a solid agreement with yourself on a certain time that you will work on that goal.
So that’s just a handful of tips on how you can use time more wisely to achieve your goals! If you have any pieces of advice or further thoughts, please leave a comment below!
