Life on Purpose

Do you spend your time intentionally or randomly? Since you have a limited amount of time, it makes sense to purposefully use your time to achieve the outcomes you want.
To get the most out of your time:

  1. Assess Your Use – you have 24 hours, 1,440 minutes or 86,400 seconds in a day. There are certain things you must do such as eating and sleeping. The rest of the time is yours to invest as you decide. Measure what you spend your time doing (or not doing) and decide whether you are making wise investments. Adjust accordingly.
  2. Results Not Tasks – make a list of the outcomes or results you want to achieve. Then determine what must get done to accomplish the result. If you are burdened with long “to do” lists that never get finished, remember that it’s the result that matters not a checkmark next to a task.
  3. Alternate Focus and Fun – research shows that you cannot multitask. You are biologically incapable of processing attention-rich inputs simultaneously. Work attentively on one task or activity at a time and then allow yourself some time to be unapologetically unproductive. The ebb and flow allows your brain to function in its most productive state. The more you try to do at once the more you dilute your focus and your productive power.

When you live on purpose you decide how you spend your time. Intentionally invest your time on what matters to you and accomplishes results that make a difference.
