EMB #229: Get More Out of Your Day


The #1 reason people tell me they didn’t go workout, grocery shop or prepare their meals is because they say they have no time.

So I thought, why not do a show on how to get more out of your day, so there’s more time doing the things you want or feel you don’t have time for.

get more out of your day

Time is relevant – we all have the same hours in the day

time is important – we all wish for more time

– parents who sent their kids off to school or college

– someone who’s passed away

However we all spend time doing things, less than efficient

– checking our newsfeed first thing in the morning

– waiting in line for a coffee

– living in your in box

#1 Reason not to live a healthy lifestyle, cooking at home, working out, etc. NO TIME

– change your mind set to I didn’t make time

Priorities 

– we always have time for the things that are most important

– kids school, games, going to work, etc.

We don’t have a time issue, we have a priority issue

Running Your Life

– if you don’t have a plan, you’ll be a part of someone else’s

– have some structure
