Howdy my buddy. Welcome to the podcast. I’m so comfortable to be right here with you. I simply bought again from Charleston a number of weeks in the past. Steve and I went, and we had the most effective time. We had been there with one other couple, our two pals. We rode bikes on the seaside, and we shopped. And we ate actually superb meals. We toured the town. I’ve to say, I believe Charleston is my new favourite metropolis within the U.S. I’m just a bit bit in love with it.
I realized this from Michael Hyatt. He taught me to actually discover cities and environments which are a pure match for who you need to be. I’ve actually achieved that with my life. So for those who haven’t heard of doing this otherwise you haven’t actually thought of it earlier than, give it some thought now. Take into consideration the place you reside. Town, the house, the state that you just reside in. Do you actually like it? Is it the town that you’d select for those who had been rechoosing? Why? It’s just a bit enjoyable train for you. That’s why I’m at all times open to new locations, new environments, new cultures. I like to maintain increasing and rising in that method.
Okay. At present we’re going to speak about time and time shortage and time administration, and what you’ve time for. Earlier than we dive into in the present day’s episode, I need to encourage you to register for a mindset workshop that I’m doing. If you happen to go to nataliebacon.com/energy, one can find the entire particulars.
The workshop is named the facility of your thoughts. And I’m going to be educating you the way to apply a few of these life teaching instruments in a extremely new and totally different method so to take what you’re studying on the podcast and begin really making use of it to your day-to-day life.

I’m very excited to announce that the Creator Program will probably be opening in the course of April. This spherical we’re doing enrollment very in a different way.

I do know now we have superb ladies now, and I might love so that you can apply to see if it’s a very good match.
All proper. Now let’s dive into what you’ve time for. So most of you recognize that I’ve achieved a ton of labor on cash in my life and relationships. It’s actually paid off. That’s why I’m so enthusiastic about these life teaching instruments. I inform my coach on a regular basis these instruments actually work for those who work them. What I’ve discovered is that I’ve a lot extra work to do on my time and my relationship with time. So that is an train that I’ve achieved that actually was a sport changer for me. So for those who discover that you’re figuring out as somebody who’s at all times busy, you’re feeling like there’s not sufficient time, you’re at all times in a rush. That is going to be actually, actually useful for you.
So the way it works is you’re going to ask your self this query. What do I’ve time for? Then you definately’re going to jot down down your solutions. Extra particularly I’d such as you to reply the query with reference to 6 particular classes. So what do you’ve time to consider? What do you’ve time to say? What do you’ve time to really feel? Who do you’ve time to be? What do you’ve time to do? What habits do you’ve time for?
So let me provide you with some examples. Once you reply the query what do you’ve time to consider, chances are you’ll provide you with some constructive examples and a few detrimental examples. So you’ve time to consider private growth. You may have time to consider what you need your future to appear to be. You may have time to consider your targets. You additionally will in all probability discover that you’ve time to consider some detrimental issues like beating your self up. Or you’ve time to consider the way you don’t have time. That’s one among my favorites. I’ve time to consider how I don’t have sufficient time. Isn’t that fascinating?
The rationale that that is so efficient is for those who’re in time shortage, which by the way in which, for those who haven’t listened to that podcast episode. After this episode, go forward and take heed to that one. It offers you a little bit bit extra background on being in time shortage the place you assume that there’s by no means sufficient time. So if you’re somebody who identifies as by no means having sufficient time or being busy, your mind isn’t going to love the query what do I’ve time for. As a result of your mind doesn’t assume that it has time for something. That’s why your query is magic. It requires you to be unsuitable. It requires you to see what you’re lacking.
So some extra examples. Let’s say you’re answering the particular query what do you’ve time to say. You would possibly provide you with a number of positives. Like I’ve time to offer compliments, and I’ve time to offer reward. You additionally would possibly discover that you’ve time to argue, or you’ve time to level out what’s unsuitable to your husband. When you concentrate on the class of what you’ve time to really feel, that is the place it will get actually fascinating. Since you’re in all probability going to search out for those who’re in time shortage that you’ve time to really feel rushed. You may have time to really feel burdened. You may have time to really feel fearful.
So what’s actually fascinating about this train is on default you assume that you just don’t have time. That thought creates the sensation of feeling very rushed and in a rush and the thought sample and the determine of being somebody who’s busy. Once you ask your self a extremely good query like what do I’ve time for, it requires you to actually level out the truth that all of us have time. And that our mind is the one which’s creating these ideas that both are or aren’t serving us.
So whenever you reply the particular query who do I’ve time to be, chances are you’ll discover that you’ve time to be somebody who’s at all times busy. That is one which I actually have recognized with that I’m engaged on myself. So I’ve time to be in a rush. I’ve time to be busy. It’s fascinating as a result of my mind is pondering, “Properly, no. I don’t have time. That’s the entire level.” As a result of my mind thinks it’s a indisputable fact that I don’t have time. However after all that’s not true. That’s a thought.
So after I journal and do self-coaching round who I’ve time to be, I discover how unsuitable I’m about my relationship with time. I discover how that’s not serving me. You might discover that you’ve numerous ideas about being caught within the comparability entice or a perfectionist or not adequate. So you’ve time to be somebody who’s not adequate. You may have time to assume all the things needs to be good. You may have time to consider how her life is healthier than yours.
If this train feels a little bit little bit of a problem to you, beginning with the particular query “what do you’ve time to do” might be the simplest to reply. So mine would possibly look one thing like I’ve time to bathe and prepare day-after-day. I’ve time to work. I’ve time to get espresso. I’ve time for Netflix. I’ve time to play with Penny. I’ve time for adventures on the weekends with Steve and Penny. I even have time to scroll on social media.
So it’s nothing what you do in a day that you’ve time for. What habits are you in that you’ve time for? Once more, a few of these will probably be constructive. A few of these will probably be detrimental. Do you’ve time for ingesting alcohol or consuming sweets or turning on Netflix proper whenever you get house from work? Do you’ve time for figuring out and exercising? Do you’ve time to handle your self? Do you’ve time for that self-care? Your mind will problem you on this. So I believe it’s actually essential so that you can write down your solutions. Attempt to provide you with a handful of constructive and detrimental in every class.
So let me undergo the questions yet one more time simply so that you don’t need to rewind it. What do you’ve time to consider? What do you’ve time to say? What do you’ve time to really feel? Who do you’ve time to be? What do you’ve time to do? What habits do you’ve time for? So write down three to 5 positives and three to 5 negatives for every of these six classes.
Then the following half is to reply these three questions. I name it the cease, begin, and keep the identical. So what do you need to cease having time for? What do you need to begin having time for? What do you need to maintain having time for? So listed here are some examples. I need to cease having time for being busy. I need to begin having time for being current in conversations. I need to maintain having time for adventures on nights and weekends with Steve and Penny.
So the primary a part of this train is the notice software. It’s what do I even have time for that I’m already pondering, feeling, being, doing, saying? Then it’s what do I need to cease? What do I need to begin? What do I need to maintain doing with respect to time? From there what you are able to do is you can begin to note whenever you’re within the power of no matter it’s that you just need to cease doing, begin doing, or maintain having time for.
So if you’re somebody who identifies as being busy, and that’s one thing that you just need to cease having time for then you definitely take note of whenever you’re in that power. It will not be that you just’re saying to somebody, “Oh, I’m so busy.” It could simply be that you just really feel busy. You begin to concentrate to it. “Oh, that is the half the place I’m feeling actually busy. I see that I’m pondering I’m so busy. I see that I’m pondering this a lot of the day.” From that consciousness, you’ll be able to shift to start out pondering a brand new thought. From that new although, you’ll create the brand new power of who you need to be sooner or later.
If you wish to begin one thing like being extra current in conversations, at first it’d really feel a little bit bit clunky. Like extra of an effort. However that’s simply since you’re beginning one thing new. Finally you’re going to get to this place of circulation. So it’s pondering forward of time, “Okay, how do I need to present up in my dialog with my buddy after I name her or after we exit to dinner or after we meet as much as go on a hike?” Proper, what questions can I ask her? How can I actually be current from a spot of giving as a substitute of constructing it about me? Then how can I proceed having time for no matter it’s that I like that I’ve time for and ensuring that I prioritize that.
So it’s only a method so that you can be extra intentional together with your time utilizing this software, this life teaching software, the place you form of hack your mind to see that it’s not that you just don’t have time. You do have time. However chances are you’ll be having time for issues that you just don’t need to have time for. You may have time for mindset drama, or you’ve time to really feel burdened or fearful about time. It’s so fascinating, proper? Your mind says I don’t have time. However with this train, you’ll discover that you just’re really having time to assume I don’t have time. It’s fascinating. I discover it so fascinating.
What additionally got here up for me after I was eager about what I needed to share with you in the present day was time generosity. So ask your self are you beneficiant together with your time? Why or why not? I’m very beneficiant with my cash. I like to offer cash. I don’t give from lack. I give from understanding that I’ve loads. I do know that I at all times have greater than sufficient. I actually genuinely love to offer cash, however I’m not as beneficiant with my time. Or a minimum of I haven’t been prior to now. That is one thing that I’m really engaged on.
It has nothing to do with the precise time similar to it has nothing to do with the precise cash. I talked about this within the generosity episode. If you happen to haven’t listened to that as properly, take heed to that after this. as a result of you’ll be able to apply it to time similar to you apply it to cash. So how you concentrate on your time will decide whether or not you’re beneficiant with it. So for those who assume that you just don’t have sufficient time, you possible aren’t going to be very beneficiant together with your time. Conversely for those who assume that you’ve loads of time, you’re going to like to offer time.
I really assume that point generally much more than cash might be such a method to give from love. Once you give somebody your time, you’re giving a lot of your self. That’s one thing that I sit up for doing extra of in my private life and my skilled life. Simply in life usually. I believe that giving my time is a method to give from generosity not from lack or feeling like I would like to offer or have to offer. All of those workouts will enable you to carry consciousness to the way you’re at the moment spending your time.
In that point shortage episode, I talked about how there are 24 hours in a day. You’ll be able to give it some thought like $24,000 that you must use each single day. How do you need to use it? So for those who’re asking your self the way you’re at the moment utilizing it, which is what you’re doing whenever you say what do I’ve time for. It brings consciousness to the way you’re budgeting your time.
From there you’ll be able to resolve okay. What do I need to cease? What do I need to begin? What do I need to maintain having time for? What do I need to cease spending cash on? What do I need to begin spending cash on? What do I need to maintain spending cash on?
The identical is true for time. I was somebody who overworked quite a bit, and I had that identification. So I had the identification that I used to be somebody who had time to overwork. I utterly shed that identification. I don’t determine in that method anymore. I don’t describe myself as somebody who overworks, however I might nonetheless say that even when it’s unconsciously I determine as being busy. That’s one thing that I actually need to shift, and I’ve been teaching quite a bit on numerous you skilled ladies and simply ladies basically. A whole lot of mothers as properly.
In Develop You, we’ve been speaking quite a bit about this. So I’m going to be teaching particularly on this much more in Develop You. I need to encourage you that if you would like particular teaching to return be part of us. In order that in case you have a relationship in time in your life the place you’re at all times feeling busy and like there’s not sufficient time, you’ll be able to take what you’ve realized right here and apply it at a a lot deeper stage inside Develop You with a coach to form of enable you to see your thoughts in a method that you could’t but see.
Whereas it’s going to be a extremely nice train so that you can do that as soon as simply to see what comes up, it’s going to be much more highly effective for those who do that work on an ongoing foundation to actually just remember to’re training and implementing what you’re altering with respect to your relationship with time. So I do know we’ll try this in Develop You.
Even for those who’re not in Develop You, do that on an ongoing foundation. Weekly, month-to-month. Ask your self what you’ve time for. Ask your self the particular six questions, reply them, and see alongside the way in which if you’re remodeling your relationship with time. If not, come and get that additional assist so to form of get out of this time shortage at all times busy at all times rushed mentality.
That’s what I’ve for you in the present day. I’ll speak with you subsequent week. Have a tremendous remainder of the week.
