10 "Timely" Questions For You:
Here are a few questions to reflect on:
1) How much clarity do you have on where your time goes?
2) To what extent do you value your own time?
3) In what tangible ways do you demonstrate your respect of time to yourself? How about to others?
4) How much clarity do you have on what your highest priorities are when it comes to spending your time and living your best life? Consider your obligations - as well as those wants & needs that would add meaning and fulfillment to your life.
5) How much 'time' are you giving those priorities? What is one small thing you can do to free up more time for these?
6) How do you plan your time? Where can you improve upon your planning?
7) To what extent do your organizational skills impact your time? How can you better manage yourself to give yourself 'more time' for things you want to do?
8) Where do/can you say 'no' to protect your time? TIP! If you have difficulty saying 'no' - you can listen to my free Webinar (Are you Addicted to the Yes Habit).
9) If you had an extra hour a day - what would you do with it? How easy or hard was it for you to come up with the answer to this question?
10) Ask yourself (and be ruthlessly honest): How fulfilled am I with how I am spending my time? Choose a time-frame (e.g. this past year, months - or other). How do you feel and what might you want differently? How committed are you to make that change (even if you don't yet know how)?
Did any of these questions prompt any 'ahh hahs' for you? Or perhaps they invited more inquiry and personal reflection? Do you feel you could use more clarity on how you spend your time - and how you would like it to be different? Perhaps crystalize your priorities and goals further? Explore strategies to actualize them? Find solutions to those 'time' challenges? Clarity is very empowering -- because with clarity (and commitment) you can plan/work towards more meaningful goals.

I know a woman,Nora Dunn, who is a freelance writer/traveller and self described "Professional Hobo". She used to be a Certified Financial Planner but decided she wasn't spending her 'time' (aka: Life) the way she wanted to. So she did what many people dream of.

In her blog, she writes about "One Daily Question That Will Keep Your Life From Stagnating." It's powerful stuff. You may not want to pack up your bags, sell your stuff and travel the world - but the question can be applied to each and every one of us in our own daily lives. Check it out!
