You are currently browsing the tag archive for the ‘tired’ tag.

You feel like there’s never enough time every day, every week, every month, every year to get all your “shtuff” done.

Just when you think you’ve caught up, you burn out, put off all your tasks because you’re exhausted, and end up back where you started…needing to catch up.

And the truth is…you may never feel like you have enough time.

The other truth is… you have all the time in the world. But that doesn’t really matter if you feeeel like you don’t.

You might have heard about “standard time” and “perceived time” and how “perceived time” IS the only real time.

You see, “standard time” never changes. Never. (okay, so there’s day light savings time but…other than that it never changes). On any given day, at any given moment you and I are given the same amount of time as Michelangelo had when he painted the Cysteine Chapel, Mark Zuckerberg has as he creates the Facebook empire, and Oprah has as she rules her queendom. So why have they been able to GET MORE DONE in the same amount of time?

Their PERCEIVED TIME is grounded in abundance not time scarcity.
They know, FEEL, and have faith that there is always ample time.

It’s important to note that you must have all 3 aspects in order to truly be grounded in abundance (and have all the time in the world). Here’s why…

1) KNOW: Understanding that you have all the time in the world is the simplest aspect of time abundance. It is “in your brain” kind of understanding. Once you know and understand that there is time all around you, you can move onto the other aspects which play even bigger roles…

2) FEEL: It’s good to know something but to feel it is even deeper. Your entire body begins to believe and understand there are oodles of time. Imagine being able to look at the clock, no matter what it says, and feel completely calm and relaxed. That’s when you know you have achieved the FEEL aspect…

3) FAITH: All religious beliefs aside, faith is the foundation of success. Faith is knowing, feeling, believing, and seeing what we want long before we ever get it. Faith is not to be confused with hope.

“Hope is walking through the fire. Faith leaps over it.”— Jim Carrey

In terms of time, having faith is knowing & feeling & believing all things will get done in the right time.

I could go on for pages on how to KNOW, FEEL, and have FAITH… how to be TIME ABUNDANT…and GET THINGS DONE… but that’s not what this article is about.

If you’re interested in learning more about how to easily and effortlessly have more time and get more done, I dive deep into that in my Time Abundance program. I will be sharing more info on that later.

In the meantime, I have 3 questions for you:

  • How does the flow of time seem to change for you during the workweek and during the weekend?
  • What do you think changes the flow of time for you?
  • What would you like to change about it?

Leave me a comment below. I’d love to hear how you and time are getting along these days!


  • Texting while driving even though you know it’s dangerous.

    Froggy Mind – jumping to past and future

  • It’s hard to remember things.
  • Distracted, even around people you love.

 Sound familiar?

 I know. You’re busy. Crazy busy. Doing 3 things while your mind is mucking around in your endless to-do list.

I’d be loading laundry, cleaning the cat box and making a mental grocery list as I was ruminating about the looming deadline on a project.

One day I passed a store window and wondered who that woman was, rushing by with her chin jutting out. I realized with a jolt it was my own reflection.

I was running through my life instead of actually living it.

 The tension of doing one thing while worrying about the need to do another left me feeling tired and wired. And yes, more than a wee bit cranky.

 In his book Less: Accomplishing More by Doing Less, Marc Lesser says:

No matter how mundane the activity, treat everything as important and take pleasure in it.

At bottom, whatever we are doing right now is what we are engaged in and it deserves our full attention and appreciation.”

Quieting our mind greases our mental gears. It actually improves our focus and concentration.

Instead of “body in one place, mind in another” I can notice. I’m. Here. Now.

When I’m washing the dishes, I can feel the warm water. Feel my breath at the tip of my nose. See the colors moving on the bubbles.

No matter what is going on, I can let go of froggy-mind that jumps to any place but the now moment. 

When I quiet my mind, I find I actually have more energy. I’m more alert to the song inside my heart.

And my family will tell you – I’m  a whole lot easier to be around.
