Self-Coach Sunday 43: Forgive In Advance

Being angry and resentful is a huge energy drain. If you want to feel ten pounds lighter, all you need to do is call somebody you hurt or wronged and apologize. Yes, do this even if it wasn’t your fault. Be bold and even call the people who hurt you and forgive them! It takes courage to forgive. Give up the fight now. It is not about who is right or wrong. It is about freeing yourself from the negative energy you are carrying around.

Make a list of people you are holding a grudge about. Get on the phone or start writing letters or emails. Talk in a neutral tone, but don’t forgive someone when you may still have feeling of rancor or resentment.  In that case seek out a coach or therapist. Chances are, the people you’re resenting don’t even remember what the issue was in the first place. Start making amends today!

Self-Coach Sunday 34: Get Your Work Done In Half The Time

Does works seem to expand and fill all available time? The solution is to reduce the amount of time you have to get the work done. When pressed, most people can get the job done in half the time. How? It may take some creative thinking, but it is well worth the effort. By working more efficiently, you may find that you will have newfound time to put towards other interests. The possibilities are endless.

This not only works in the business setting, but also at home. How?  Hire a house cleaner (click here to see my tip). Set a timer for one hour. Pick a task and try to complete it before the timers dings. Get a buddy to help you with a project. Or have a buddy call you every hour to get the progress of a task. This helps turn a menial task into a fun game.  Afterwards, you will feel great that you’ve gotten it out of the way. Having more time attracts success and opens you to opportunities that give you joy.

Self-Coach Sunday 32: Switch Off And Unplug

Studies show that people are happiest when they are in a state of “flow” – check out the work of Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi. “Flow is a stare of focused and intense concentration in which there is a feeling of transcendence – or losing time.” High flow activities are when your mind is actively engaged in what you are doing in and intense and focused way. The opposite end of this flow spectrum is watching TV.

TV drains energy. These energy-wasters and time-wasters can sometimes take over our lives before we know it – computer games, apps, watching movies, surfing the internet, chatting on social media, and so on. Make a choice to limit these brain-numbing, unfulfilling activities. Instead, unplug electronics for a period of time each day, limit TV viewing to educational programs, or record them and skip through commercials, or limit the number of hours in a week you watch TV. These distractions can reduce so ability to attract what you want in life. Consider making a change today!

Self-Coach Sunday 31: Track Your Time

Where does all of your time and money go? Today’s tip is to find out. We know that it is helpful to do a spending log for a month and see what is going on. The same goes for time! Do you work hard, come home and ask where the time has gone? Do you feel there are not enough hours in the day? Do you spend too much time on routine tasks and find you don’t have time for projects at home or work?

It is time to take a closer look. Take one week and track your time in 15-minutes increments. Write down everything your doing from when you get up to when you go to bed, from phone calls, to coffee and bathroom breaks. I realize this is a tedious task, but it is just one week. Have a chart of 15 minute intervals and simply jot down the activity. Pick an ordinary week that reflects your typical schedule – not a vacation week. Now get tracking.

You may see things like wasted time, too much time on one task, too much TV, not enough time on your self-care, Keep tracking and see what you are really doing. Ask yourself whether this is how you want to be spending your life or not. Then start automating, delegating and deleting the time-wasters and start working on you life goals.
