Most people will see the title and expect another list on how to get more done in a shorter time. If that’s what you’re looking for, I’ve got to disappoint you.
I’ve made a discovery about time that’s so huge, it could change your whole life. Your mission is to find out how to literally expand time for what lights you up.

Task 1: Time is a new concept
The concept of time is relatively new. The first public clock on a church appeared in the 14th century, but it only struck the hour. Regular people lived by the sun and the day length.
Only in the 17th century did clocks become more accurate. It took a lot longer until they became anywhere near as omnipresent as they are today.
With the industrial revolution, timekeeping became important. Workers had to be punctual or wouldn’t get paid. These days, we live by the clock, but all in all we’re really bad at it.
Is it any wonder, considering how new an invention it is?
Task 2: Focus
Nowadays, we do more than any people in history ever did. Historically, people did one job, one role, had one responsibility. Now we’re trying to do it all. In addition, technology gives us access to the whole world, which is great but had added additional tasks that demand our attention.
Of course we’re exhausted and never have time!
Your task is to simplify. You don’t have to do it all. Pick one thing you want to do for each part of yourself: body, mind, soul, spirit. Focus on this one thing.
Task 3: Passions expand time
Even though we measure time accurately these days, it’s still relative (just read the chapter on “Einstein Time” in Gay Hendricks’s The Big Leap). You can use this concept by consciously prioritising things you love.
Focus on your passion or passions. Don’t worry about anything else, just focus on them. Keep the four things from Task 2 in mind, but otherwise it’s passions first.
It sounds strange, but this literally expands time. You’ll find yourself relaxing and feeling less stressed. You’ll be able to concentrate better. And you’ll find that you do, in fact, have time for what matters.
