Taking Authority Over Your Time

Posted on: June 10, 2010

           Your time is your life. You are absolutely the final
           authority on how you use your time. Yet, we tend to
           waste our time and allow others to waste their too
           by some of our inappropriate actions.
          
           Other than go to school and work, you have total
           control over your time. This is part of what it means
           to be an autonomous individual.  You can spend your
           time as you see fit.
          
           We hurt ourselves when we give our time, the
           minutes of our life span, to pursuits that don’t match
           our own values. We each need to assess our own
           truths around the use of time, be clear about our
           own feelings and values, and protect our own time
           needs.
          
           We tend to fall somewhere along a continuum
           between the extremes of always giving away their
           time to never allowing for any flexibility at all.
           Either extreme can be a problem. Scheduling so
           rigidly as to rule out a change of mind or the
           insertion of a new need creates tension and distance.
           Yet, if we have agendas that constantly collapse and
           shift as the wind does can also be harmful to our
           goals and values.
          
           So, don’t give no thought at all to the use of your
           time because it will melt like snow and you will have
           nothing to show for it. Part of creating proper time
           boundaries is to fall somewhere between these two
           extremes.
