We’re drowning in emails….

DAY 4

E-mail time

Email has become an integral part of our lives. It became a powerful way of communicating, which quickly became the norm for businesses all over the world.

Email is great. You can attach files, pictures and videos efficiently. You get people what they need and move on with your life.

So what’s the problem? Volume. We’ve become slaves to our inventions that were created to make life easier.

Now we’re drowning in emails. Every store, car dealer, app company, and vitamin peddler is sending you emails almost on a daily basis. Spam has become an enormous issue we all deal with, and it doesn’t seem to be going away.

Today we deal with this. It doesn’t make sense to look at your email every time your phone 📱 or computer 💻 chimes. It distracts you from the task in hand and keeps you unfocused. What other people want you to look at isn’t going to get you through your day efficiently. In fact, every time you look away, you lose momentum and clarity in what you were doing.

Let’s set up some chunk time for you to check email. Depending on the volume you deal with, set for 30 – 60 minutes for email in the late morning and another block toward the late afternoon.

This is your dedicated email time. The key is to get in, handle it, and get out. One way to do this is to run through all the messages in the morning block, handle anything that can be responded to in the first 5 minutes, star the important ones you need to get back to, and delete or mark as spam all the others. You’ll have another block later in the day to get to the longer ones.

On that note, you need a good spam filter so the junk doesn’t get put in your face. There are a number of good ways to do this, and you’ll have to find one that suits your unique needs. Make a habit of marking items you didn’t elect to receive as spam within your email program. This teaches software what not to send you and helps you keep a clean inbox. With spam out of your face, look at the key communications that deserve your time and start to back your way out of long email chains that waste it.

The secret to email chunk time is to book it on your calendar, communicate clearly (so it doesn’t go back and forth), and clear your plate. This way it doesn’t sit on your mind and pester you; it also doesn’t languish unread or half answered. The sweeter result of this play is increased focus and concentration on the work you’re doing. If you’re working on a document, stay in it. Spreadsheet? Cool, get your work done there. Driving? Well, what were you thinking checking your phone anyhow?

The goal is to maintain clarity in your work and handle email at designated times. Rearrange your schedule to chunk your email time, and make this your plan for today. Try to do it again tomorrow, then the next day. In a few weeks, you’ll see the clutter dissipate and your life get better. Stick with this, and pay close attention to holding the line. Some discipline will pay off here. People may push back. That’s fine. Deliver everything that’s required of you and get your job done. Efficiency is the key. Once people learn to sync to your new rhythm, the difference in productivity and sanity will emanate from your vicinity.

The key is to get better at what you do by curating your day to serve you and free up your time.

We’re all struggling to find time in our lives.

We’re all struggling to find time ⌛️in our lives, but somehow there’s less and less of it to go around each year.

We’re too TIRED 😴 to think.

We’re too WIRED to focus.

We’re less EFFICIENT than we want to be.

We feel GUILTY about not getting enough time with our loved ones.

Our perception of time is coupled with the epidemic of STRESS in our everyday lives.

What does stress makes us feel like?

It makes us feel like the walls are closing in on us, which doesn’t help us to feel better about the concept of time.

What is time?

Time ⏰ is the CURRENCY of LIFE.

We have only a certain amount of heartbeats 💗 with which to SAVOUR life and really TASTE it.

Our time with our families 👨‍👩‍👦‍👦, loved ones, pets 🐈🐕🐎 and hobbies is PRECIOUS, and we should cherish it.

We trade our time for MONEY 💰.

Although, this money buys us shelter 🏡, food 🥘 holidays ✈️ and college for our children.

We can also squander our money, and it’s as though we never had that time at all.

We develop HEALTH ISSUES when we’re less conscious of time. We then wish we had that time back to make things right.

TIME is all we have, and it’s our most VALUABLE GIFT 🎁 in life.

When we run out of time, well, the game is over. We can look back, but we can’t ever get it back.

We all know that we are feeling starved of time, but what are we actually doing about it? Precious little.

Over the next 90 days I’m going to let you know about some SIMPLE, easy to FOLLOW and PROVEN methods.

My goal is to guide you towards TIME PROSPERITY, which means having the time to accomplish what you DESIRE in life without feeling compressed, stressed 😩, overburdened, or hurried.

So what does TIME PROSPERITY do?

It brings us PEACE ✌️

It brings us BETTER DECISIONS

It brings us BETTER HEALTH

It allows us more FAMILY TIME

It allows realignment of our priorities in a way that helps us bring FULFILLMENT and PURPOSE back into our lives.

If you can CONTROL your relationship with time and achieve time prosperity, you’ll reduce your STRESS, have MORE ENERGY, GAIN more fulfillment, and the result will be to actually get MORE DONE.

How do we achieve time prosperity?

We learn to STOP 🛑 TIME.

Over the next 90 days I will walk you through some ancient spiritual practices and practical life skills that help us stop time by tapping into our innate wisdom, taking control of our calendars, and developing solid boundaries around time commitment.

Think of this as the PRACTICE OF MINDFUL TIME MANAGEMENT.

If you’d like to join me over the next 90 days COMMENCING on Jan 1st 2019.

Ensure you’re following me, or if you’d like to let me know you’re taking part, then drop the word TIME in the comments below, and together we can discuss how we’re finding it has helped us, or in some cases maybe not helped us.

Look forward to you all joining me.

See you Jan 1st….with my first post.

The importance of Living a life that MATTERS.

 

I wanted to share this with you all.

The three lines which resonate with me are ~

»What will matter is not your success, but your SIGNIFICANCE

»What will matter is not what you learned, but what you TAUGHT.

»What will matter is every act of integrity, compassion, courage or sacrifice that ENRICHED, EMPOWERED OR ENCOURAGED others to emulate your example.

»What will matter is not your competence, but your CHARACTER.

Remember that living a life that matters doesn’t happen by accident, it happens by choice.

Meet my adopted Orangutans Rocky and Rickina.

I want to introduce you to, my adopted Orangutans Rocky and Rickina.

Its a week ago since I adopted these rather cute guys, and it’s a decision that I will never regret making. It’s not only about making a difference in this world with human beings, but it’s also about the impact you can have on the entire universe, which includes the animal kingdom.

I’m personally a lover of all animals, and this was the perfect opportunity to adopt Rocky and Rickina.

Check out the project below to see the fantastic work they do, to rehabilitate these orphans back into the wild.

Heres a Little Information about my adoptees.

2AA97162-DF83-426A-A077-6B01B88396F1

My donation of £14 a month, goes towards providing care for their needs as well as all the infants at the care centre to ensure they continue to grow as healthy as possible before hopefully being released back into the Wild.

Rocky and Rickinas care includes 24 hour staff care and veterinary care, food, enrichment and of course, forest school where they learn all those orangutan skills which would have be provided by their mummy.
