What is Time?

Everyone has 24 hours or 1440 minutes per day, how you choose to spend that time, will determine what kind of person you will become in the future.

Time, as Tony Buzan described it in his book “Time Map”, consists of 7 main blocks, which are the following:

  1. Relationship
  2. Family
  3. Friends
  4. Religion or Spirital life
  5. Culture (free Time)
  6. Health
  7. Education/Work

1. Relationship

We all have different criteria when choosing a suitable partner, all of which depends on our own preferences, cultural background, physical attributes and many more factors that affect our choices. A wise woman once told me “Your partner will either lift you up, or bring you down.” Choose wisely!

2. Family

Each person has their own individual, unique relationship with their family. Just keep in mind that they are mostly the ones that will support, love, and care for you unconditionally without expecting anything in return.

3. Friends

Two quotes are true “Show me your friends, I show you your future” & “You are the average of the most 5 people you spend time with.”

Your partner and friends represents you.

4. Religion or Spirital life

It is a part of our lives, you decide what your belief system is.

5. Culture (Free Time)

Based on recent studies, an average person spends around 144 minutes every day on social media. That is 2 hours and 24 minutes, daily. Do you really think this is a good investment or rather just a waste of your time? You should now realize that social media is simply a distraction hindering you from achieving your goals!
How you invest your free time, will determine who you will be in the future.

6. Health

You can never change or replace your body, it is the only vessel you will ever get. Eat well, sleep well, and exercise regularly.

7. Education/Work

Education in this sense doesn’t mean how many hours you spend in math class, but rather, how you use that knowledge that you accumulated by studying in order to further yourself and advance in your life!
Working hard to have the best grades possible is great, but it is only one side of the coin. The other side of the coin being is just as important and that is personal skills, which will help you achieve your goals.

Study/Work – Life Balance

What is the right study-life, or work-life balance?
You asked the wrong question, work-life balance is nothing more than a myth!

There are only work-life sacrifices, the right question would be; how many hours of one, two or threw of the previously discussed blocks are you willing to sacrifice to achieve your goals?

If you have a goal or a dream in mind, you will have certain standards and priorities, and based on those you will understand what you need to do and what you will choose to sacrifice.
If you simply do what everyone else is doing, you will get what everyone else is getting. Unfortunately, most people are just average. Be different, not average.

Be different, Not average

You can’t have it all, you must do sacrifices.

Doing that requires self-consciousness, self-discipline, have big goals and understand how to respect your time. If you don’t respect your time, nobody will. Start your plan and take actions NOW.

Taking Actions

You are always one decision away from changing your life! Wishing and hoping never achieved anything, only actions make a difference. It is normal to be cautious, hesitant or reluctant, but this reluctance is exactly what is preventing you from changing your life for the better. Expect more from yourself, act now, invest your time properly and you WILL achieve your goals!

Ask yourself, do you want to be average, life everyone else, or do you want to be different, exceptional, a source of pride for yourself and your family? If it is the latter the congratulations, you have already taken a step in the right path.
