Are there times when you feel that life is being sucked out of you?
Have you met Ozi Octopus? The energy sucker and your “Future-sucker”.
Your friend that keeps you partying in your O-zone*.
Is there a future that you want? Then Ozi turns up, and you hear yourself say:
- I’m too busy
- I’ll do it later
- I don’t have enough time
- It’s too hard; I can’t do it
- I’m not ready
- What if I/it is not good enough?
- Who cares if I eat or drink this?
- They won’t be happy
- They will be sad
- They will hate me
Inspiration for the creation of your future
What creates a fantastic future? Your time and energy and the choices you make.
What if your time and energy were yours, only yours, not anyone else’s? In the same way, your choices are yours?
What if you decided now that your time and effort only went to 3 things?
- 8 Hr’s Sleep
- 8 Hr’s Real Play
- 8 Hr’s Work/Business/Purpose?
My life isn’t like that?
Have you noticed that it’s usually your work that keeps getting Over allocated? It takes on a greater proportion of time and results in
*Your O&U Zones become your ‘happy place’ – Over-drinking, Overeating, Over scrolling, Over watching, Overmedicating and the
U-Zones are alive and kicking Undersleeping, Underperforming & Under happy. That sucks, and O& U Zones are not long term happiness opportunities.
What if you only chose sleep or real play to be overfilled and never depleted?
Why get out of your ‘O’ – Zone?
No one in the graveyard ever wished they had worked more hours but spent time with loved ones and in real play.
They wished they had done the things they wanted but feared. Perhaps the only reason you are putting things off is that it’s easier to put it off than to face doing the things you fear to do.
We have been there too! The instinctual part of our brains are always trying to survive (which in the distant past used to be staying away from change). The pursuit of our future doesn’t often seem as urgent as surviving. If we honour our (yes and no’s) pre-planned time, not our “at the moment” impulses* and distraction, we maximise our life.
*Grab the biscuits, drink a glass of wine, scroll FB, do the “easy stuff “ of our comfort zone. Sound familiar?
We hear clients and would-be clients say the same thing time and time again. I’m just too busy right now. With what? Often not their future but putting more time and energy into their work and “O-ZONE”.
Four steps to create time and opportunity and stop overwhelm:
- Connect – Self-Awareness of where you spend your time and energy and what you want (your Compass)
- Collaborate – Initiate the support around you generate opportunities
- Create – Initiate catalysts in your life to navigate to your everyday destination
- Vitality – the foundation of moving forward every day – step by step and move at the PACE, which feels right for you.
Stop Overthinking and let go of Overworking, being Overwhelmed and Reset, Decide and ACT;
Don’t wait; #YOLO. (You Only Live Once) so ACT, for YOU.
