Your Problem Is Not Lack Of Time; It Is Lack Of Focus

People often complain about lack of time, but the real issue is lack of focus or direction. If you feel you never have enough time you may need to reassess your goal. That will get you back on track and you will soon see that you have lots of time.

When our thoughts are scattered, by multitasking, we loose the valuable commodity of time. However, if you are focused on one specific task you will feel in control and coincidentally manage your time better. In my opinion, there is no such thing as multitasking; anyway. We can only do one thing at a time, bare in mind I’m aware of the minuscule tasks we accomplish on a day to day basis. Nevertheless, these are not the things we complain about when we consider loss of time.

The things we say we lack the time to do are those meaningful task that call for our specific, focused, undivided attention. For example, that big presentation you have to give, that will call for a focused mindset, if you want to do it well.

Another thing that causes stress over time is the arch nemesis of time; procrastination. Procrastination more than anything else makes you feel like you don’t have time. If more people would begin things as soon as possible and by doing thing in increments they would not feel so pressured. We can learn a lot from the old adage ‘ how do you eat an elephant'(One bite at a time).

Finally, I suggest you try these things over the next month and see if your lost time does not return, I guarantee it will.
