setting posterity authorities by steve avellino of steve heavily in a dark come here are you familiar with the idea of setting priorities you look at your list of goals are projects or tasks sort them in order of most important to least important then if your attention on the most important ones before you tackle the less important ones nothing the surprising there let's say you have a new priority come into your life and is one that requires a nontrivial time investment maybe you want you start an exercise programme and you want to devote a few hours a week to it you'll feel like you have any free time where you can just insert your exercise routine the idea free time is a bit silly anyway you're always using time for something even fits purely for early directive is or rest so lonely you can insert something new into your life is to delete something old you're already
going each twenty four hour day with twenty four hours of habitual actions whether this be sleep or work or rest or even just being lazy you can't just an extra hour in there and create a twenty five hour day well i suppose you could if you a very flexible schedule but then you'll lose about two weeks at the end of the year a problem happens when you try to do this twenty five hours into twenty four hours shove that our will have to be stopped send from somewhere else most of the time people don't choose whether our will actually come from they may assign at a time but they won't consciously think about what's going to be displaced from that time slot this can result in feeling stressed or overwhelmed for no apparent reason often leads to procrastination maybe the displays activities were more important than he realized the idea impostor yorick means that you consciously deliberately shoes what to delete whenever you start doing something new so if you want at thirty minutes of exercised each day where will
this thirty minutes come from willoughby stolen from sleep time family time lazy time fun time thinking and reflecting time etc ideal whenever you add a new priority to your life you want to delete a budgetary authority just as you make it what is most important to you in life you can also make less of what's least important to you take note of what you do each day that in just isn't that important work steel time from unimportant activities you re assigned to more important ones can you delete watching some if ye to add some actual reading can delete superfluous web server to add more thinking time sometimes setting bus to is very challenging once eve achieve de nicely balanced life and then you want to start a big new project you may find it difficult to steal time from other activities because now everything seems aboard i had this problem on a star ready my book this is a big project and i am presently
vesting about forty hours a week on it that's forty hours after displays every week in order to complete this project a huge amount of time in the beginning i know you ve just try to squeeze it into my already busy schedule without consciously deciding forty hours i would delete my dropped maybe ten hours consciously so try to squeeze seventy hours of activity into those forty hours obviously that in work too well i had a conscious look out another thirty hours or drop and are required king some hard sacrifices some of it came from sleep some from family time most of it came from other work activities had start passing up a lot of business opportunities that my would norm have taken advantage of atoms the saying no allow more often now virtually every week i have to say no to at least two or three tempting business offers in the short run most would be successful button in the long run i'd never finish my book if i said yes to many times and
similarly the book project is much more important than the sum total of all these smaller projects as tempting as they seem it could take a bit of careful reflection to know what's important to you and what is it example supposed suppose working a working a full time job and decide to start your own business maybe we'll try to do this by starting business in their spare time welcome their full time job and it certainly works for some people spare time is really exist though so what's being displaced often his family time leisure time or exercise time so you work on your new business an extra two hours a day you ve not only increased year total work time by two hours also reduce your recovery time by two hours and is often throws life out balance again lead to physical and emotional overwhelm i confess to being rather intimately familiar with this situation at times an alternative way of handling the situation is to steal that extra time for
the new business from your exist work time debating options are available to you you may be able to scale like your hours switch to a part time job quick come lately and work on your new business full time use accrue vacation time and sick days who take off one day each week steel small blocks of i'm during your regular work day for your new business etc obviously some of these options will display some income but for many people that is a better choice than displacing too much leisure time he does it to the palace title setting pasteur or by steve avellino of steve avellino die com he's crazy to think that i narrated steve and episode three and a thousand episodes later still going he has a lot of articles probably narrated like a hundred of them i work a lot and nutrition is something i often overlook definitely to settle
