The Secret To Getting More Time



Jim Rohn said: “Time is more valuable than money. You can get more money, but you can’t get more time.” Time’s also the subject cited most often – more than money – as a reason why people say they can’t prioritise their passions, or get coaching, or get healthy, you name it.

There are many time management systems, and I’ve studied a lot of them. A few parts of each have stuck, but there’s only one insight which has made all the difference. Let me explain.

Why time management fails


The issue with most time management systems is that life isn’t predictable or linear. You can plan your day minutely, but then life just happens and throws everything over. The nature of life runs contrary to strict planning.

Some systems take this into account, though. Instead of planning a day by a schedule, they suggest setting priorities first and fitting in less important tasks around them. This leads to the insight that once the important things are taken care of, there’s always more time for the rest.

Time is relative: how “long” an hour is, depends on your perception of it.

Passions first


To help people put this insight into practice, is my life’s work and purpose. It literally changes the world by shifting people’s focus from necessities and fear to desires and pleasure. However, people tend to fear that pursuing their passion won’t leave time for anything else.

In reality, the opposite is the case: Once your passions are the first priority in your life, and you make room for them and put them above everything else, you’ll find that time seems to expand. This is where the subjective, relative perception of time comes in. There’s more than enough room for everything when you’re in your “zone” and joyful.
