You’re full of ideas, million-dollar ideas, they come a mile a minute.

You start on these exciting plans, but then you get distracted and don’t finish. Typical. All of these unfinished projects, scattered across your desk and brain.

First you have to ask yourself, do I really want to finish these projects? Just because it’s a great idea, doesn’t mean it motivates you to get it done.

The other people have their ideas and pass them to you.

But so your list goes, all these bright ideas turn into To Dos; tasks that need to get done in your mind. The fact that they’re looming is just more to be stressed about.

Maybe you’re saying Yes to too much?

Even if you wanted to get it all done, legitimately, how does it all get done?

As we get older, our calendars run amok. Not only is it our obligations, but others’ for us. We have so much going on, we barely come up for air. Rarely do we pause and consider what we’re doing.

Are you doing too much? Cramming too much into those precious 24 hours of yours?

I believe you, you’re busy. But are you busy doing important work? Work that aligns with your priorities? Work that clearly leads to a desired result?

If not, try evaluating how you’re spending your time. You might think you’re being productive, when nothing’s really getting done.

At some point in your life, you learned busy is better. You learned being busy was the thing to do. You adopted the mindset that if you’re not filling every second with some activity, you’re not working hard enough.

But is working hard the driving factor in productivity? What if you were misled?

It’s not too late to redefine productivity.

Minimalism isn’t just about owning fewer possessions. It’s not the white walls, the sleek furniture, the tiny home.

Minimalism is a mindset. A way of simplifying your thinking and, subsequently, your behavior.

You can consider it a path to freedom. Freedom from fear, anxiety and worry. Freedom from overwhelm, overload and overcommitment. Freedom to do what you want, when you want, where you want, with who you want.

It amounts to fewer distractions, less on your plate, less clutter. It’s a lighter way of living.

Big screens, little screens, on and off screen, in front of you, behind you, in your ear, in your face, in your car, in your home, everywhere. Distractions are everywhere.

We drown in them. We’re derailed by them. We’re inspired by them. …We’re in love with them.

We seek them out. We call to them, asking to be taken away. To be our rescuer from the mundane and boring. From the difficult and challenging. From the tragic and heartbreaking.

We welcome distractions with open arms, to clutter our existence with denial, avoidance or entertainment.

It may seem harmless, but what are these distractions costing us?

While a common complaint, this blog post title is misleading. If you’re telling yourself that you don’t have time, you’re lying. We have enough time to do anything we choose because we manage our own time.

We invented time.

Long ago, we created these yardsticks to tell us where to start and stop our day. Minutes, hours, days, months, years are all figments of our imagination. Yet, we’ve become so beholden to those finite measures that now we limit ourselves by them.

When we think we lack time, it becomes our reality. Our jail cell.

We’re always doing something with our time. We’re choosing an action in every moment. To sit still, to move; to fight, to forgive; to gain, to lose.

At the end of the day, most would say they fit in what they absolutely “needed” to.

But if we create time, and we choose what we do to fill that time, don’t we have all the power? We don’t have to let time rule over us, right?

Right. If you think otherwise, you’re looking at time all wrong.

It’s not a matter of ticking seconds that dictate whether you have enough space to complete all that you wish to complete. It’s a matter of what you’re choosing to fill the space.

You always do everything you want to do, despite feeling like some things are not getting done.
