The Power of Limited Time
The most powerful resource that we have is time. Everything we do is time-dependent and changes forever with the passage of time. Even though we may think that we are repeating things in fact there is no such thing as a repeatable cycle in the pure sense of the word as time is only ever going forward and cannot be slowed, stopped or reversed.
Time can not be changed itself but it does possess the supreme power to effectuate anything it touches. Conside for a moment that Man is initially driven by basic needs like hunger, shelter, love and security but as these are slowly fulfilled, he begins to desire more and more things like cars, houses, recognition, financial security for the future, etc. The future times for which he is so busily preparing, however, will come to pass quickly even whilst he is in the process of gathering things he believes to be important in this life. In other words, what we do in our allocated time is vital to a rich and fulfilling life.
We are all employees of "Eternal Time Limited" being clocked in on our individual shifts.
Time can change our moods, aspirations and how we look at ourselves and Life itself. We evolve our thoughts to a degree and then as time passes we degenerate into a state of fear, apprehension and not being so sure about that which we were previously positive about.
So how do we control Time and become masters of it? How do we use it for our advantage, even though we know that it is measured by others around us to categorise us in terms of how efficient we are in dealing with life's affairs. Our successes and failures are measured in terms of what we have achieved in a given time.
There is an ever-increasing pressure for us to achieve more in less time. However, most of us procrastinate every day of our lives. We let the precious time roll on by without doing anything that will lead us to an improved state. We need direction, goals, aims and objectives to achieve more in less time. We can manage our time better if we have the desire to achieve smaller goals.
Frustration grows when things around us either go faster than what we would like them to or slower than our internal clocks allow. We find ourselves constantly adjusting to the speed of our environment, matching it as closely as possible so we can synchronize our collective aims and objectives.
One technique that works well is to impose a time limit on any task. If you mentally restrict the amount of time allocated for achieving a mini goal, and actively fight the urge to perfect the task then achievement of the overall goal becomes easier. We spend far more time in perfecting and completing tasks then we do in starting them and keeping them going towards completion. We hang on for the ultimate perfect result for self-satisfaction and admiration of others whereas we could in fact complete a whole series of mini tasks quite quickly and without stopping if we consciously enact this secret of major successes.
Another powerful way to achieve more in less is to automate your processes wherever possible. Use your computer for focussing on specific tasks. If you are a business owner, you can actually create pockets of Creative Time by removing yourself from a significant part of your business through automation of business processes. We have achieved a great deal of success at my company InfiNET Point Ltd http://www.infinetpoint.co.uk by automating many time-consuming processes.
However, you do not need to be a computer whiz-kid to achieve Automation. Automation can be a manual process that is carried out by others on your behalf. You only need to define the process once and keep on refining it until it is perfected. It should ultimately work without your physical presence.
Awareness of the passage of time is crucial because although it is good to have an end to journey toward, it is the journey that matters in the end!
Having to achieve more in less time is something that I have had to do in almost all areas of my own life and I attribute my entire success to taking action in limited time. In business we have developed various time-saving automation products including a marketing product called CMS Desktop, http://www.cmsdesktop.co.uk, geared for automation of Email Marketing and Customer Contact.
