October is National Clock month and what better way to kick it off than with a contest! But first, let’s take a look at an excerpt from the upcoming ebook I’ll Get Around To It Someday…
- Someday Lesson: The world may always spin at the same rate but we create or destroy time depending on how we use it.
We have so many phrases that talk about the preciousness of time. We worry that we don’t have enough time to do what we want to do and we spend too much time doing what we have to.
We end up looking around in amazement and saying “Where did the time go?” And we have done only half the things we need to do, a quarter of the things we want to do, and none of the things we dream of doing.
In Alice in Wonderland, the Mad Hatter says “If you only kept on good terms with him, he’d do almost anything you liked with the clock.”
Well, unfortunately, very few of us are on that good of terms with time and the clock does exactly what it wants.
In the age of multiple commitments to family and work, we find ourselves scrambling to accomplish anything.
Ever had those moments when time didn’t exist? When you were content with what you were doing and how much or how little time it involved didn’t matter? In those moments we own time, it’s ours. Creating time is about structuring your life so that you have more of those latter moments, and fewer speeding bullet, or dragged out periods.
How do we do that? Through choice and action. We all make choices and each choice has a consequence. We have control over our choices but rarely any influence on the consequences. Consequences that could eat up a lot of time we don’t have. We therefore need to make smart choices about how we spend our time.
Creating Time Contest
Before getting into the contest details, let’s start with the prize because honestly, the prize this month will totally bust through your time challenges.
Because this month, the winner of the Creating Time Contest will win time with me. That’s right. If you enter this month’s contest, you could win a month of email support from the world’s only Someday Mentor. We’ll figure out what blocks you have time-wise and by the end of the month you’ll have created enough time to get everything you want done.
Now that you’re all excited about the prize (seriously who wouldn’t be excited about winning something that’s worth $400?) let’s get to the details.
Tell me, either here in the comments or in an email, what you would do with the month of time mentoring. Give me your story of woe – let it all hang out and tell me why you desperately need to get your time organized.
