I’m just gonna be honest with you all; My time is really not that valuable. Sometimes I think people overstress (is that a word?) the importance of their time. Let’s take a look in to my life and see what I had going down yesterday.
- Wake up 7:45am
- Arrive at my “office” at 7:46am
- Work from home 8am to 12pm (in my underwear of course)
- Work out in the field 12pm to 3pm
- Work from home 3pm to 4:30pm
- Surf internet/watch tv/waste my life away 4:30 to 6:30.
- Go on a sweet double date 6:30 to 8:30
- Hang out at girlfriends house 8:30 to 10pm
- Blog 10pm to 11pm
- Shower, surf internet, get in bed 11pm to Midnight
That’s pretty much what a typical Ninja day looks like. Don’t get me wrong, I have my stressful days, but for the most part things are pretty chill around here. I’d say I average about 3 hours of non-committed free time a day. One of my biggest pet peeves: People that complain about not having enough time in their day. Umm hello! Don’t tell me you don’t have enough time to make a budget when you just got done watching 5 consecutive hours of The Hills on MTV.
Do ya’ll know what I’m talking about? There are a few of my friends that stress me out because they are always so stressed. I’ve come to realize there are really two types of these stress cases. There are people that have no time to do anything, because they try to do everything. Or the person that does nothing and says they wish they did something.
It’s all about time management. I love that my time is really not that valuable, because that means I have plenty of time to give. I have the flexibility to take a last minute vacation, I can meet friends for a quick lunch, I can watch Spongebob Squarepants on Saturday morning. If you feel like you have no time left at the end of the day, take a minute to re-evaluate what you are doing and see if there aren’t a few things you could cut down on. If you are in nine different yoga classes, maybe you should cut back? If you work 15 hours a day maybe you should look for a new job? If you have three kids maybe you should sell one on ebay?
Do you feel like you have enough free time in your day? What would you do with an extra two hours?
