Time Audit

As part of my new package I have created, called “Total Time Freedom, creating extra time for you” I would like to introduce you to the first step.

The first step in learning how you can create more time is to do a time audit on your day. This involves you writing down what you do each hour, every day for 1 week. I know when you read that your first thought is “yeah right, I don’t have the time in my busy life to get everything done and you want me to do more work??” Well yes it is more work for you to do in the short term. BUT in the long term it is a great tool to use to be able to assess exactly where your time goes!

Once you have it written down you can look at where you are losing and wasting time on an everyday basis. The most common time wasters are things like checking social media, checking emails and text messages, watching TV or just fluffing around! And then you can begin the interesting part to look at your emotional blocks for why you are wasting time…

When I did a time audit on my daily activities, I found that I waste a huge amount of time everyday, my vices were facebook, text messages and TV. I calculated on average 2 hours everyday I wasted on things that were not productive to helping me achieve the goals I want to achieve.. So in actual fact I was wasting:

2 hours a day

=

14 hours a week

=

60 hours a month

=

730 hours a year!!!

OMG!! That is huge and it was not until I actually looked at this on paper that I believed it!

Once I confronted with this information, I made a promise to myself to stop wasting time and start to get productive. By doing that I have been able to plan 2 workshops, almost complete my new package details during the day which has then ultimately given me extra time to spend quality time with my kids (this morning I was playing tennis on the wii with them – which is something in the past I did not have the time for).

I challenge you today to start a time audit on your day. I set up a routine of updating my time audit at lunchtime and at night after the kids had gone to bed. Give it a go and I will be interested to hear your results.

Once you have looked at the facts and figures of your time and daily activities then you can make a start to look at the emotional blocks that are causing you to waste time. For me it was self value – I was not valuing myself and thought I could not achieve, so I would use time wasters to self-sabotage my work tasks!

Until my next blog, enjoy your children.
