The Day I Realised I was Running Out of Time

Living your life over again

If you can calculate the odds of living your life all over again, would you do the same things you are doing now? If you are 35 now, starting all over would make you 70. By 40, starting over will make you eighty.

If we don't seize the day, time will be running out to accomplish all the goals we have in mind.

Do a reality check

Being happy is a matter of choice, they say. And so it is most often. In order to make sure you make the most of your time, you should always bear in mind that life can be as beautiful as it can be...

Point out your problem

When feeling unhappy, make sure you understand very well what the issue is. Without a clear identification of the problem, there can be no permanent solution. 

This applies especially when you think the issue is yourself: after some good years, you are still not the person you have always wanted to be. And that is perfectly fine: embrace your defaults as well as your qualities and learn to work on them for further improvement.

Acceptance and hustling

If you have recently come to the conclusion that you are not happy, you might want to considerate two aspects: firstly, it is worth working hard in order to achieve your goals and secondly, sometimes you have to accept that you can not have everything, as you do not possess the ability to change the world. Try it for a change and you might just feel a bit happier afterwards.

Personal Energy

Energy is everything. It goes beyond status, power, and money. Personal Energy is difficult to measure, as our energy levels vary.

There are 3 types of energy:

  1. Mental Energy: It is your ability to concentrate, pay attention and focus.
  2. Physical Energy: Ability to perform physical tasks
  3. Emotional Energy: Ability to feel compassion.
Managing Personal Energy
  • Mindfulness meditation is an excellent tool to improve our focus and awareness. We can enhance our mental energy by integrating our mind through meditation, instead of getting lost in scattered thoughts.
  • Physical energy can be enhanced with regular exercise, no matter what kind. 
  • Emotional energy is intensified by human interaction. Meeting new people and spending time with people with no particular agenda is a great way to stay positive and improve your energy levels.
Feeling lazy

Some people do the least to get just enough benefit. They can work hard, but only for a short amount of time. They always procrastinate with everything from cleaning to...

You form your identity

You make messiness and procrastination part of your identity when you don't want to do something you have to do and use the excuse that it is just "who you are." 

For example, you want to clean up after yourself, but you also don’t want to clean up, and then think, "This is me. Yes, I’m a lazy, procrastinating mess.” 

Conflicted about your choices

As long as you're conflicted about your preferences and the ways you've chosen to identify yourself, you have a problem.

It could be that you don't want to disappoint yourself and clearing the lowest hurdles possible. You are choosing a lifestyle of avoidance and low expectations.
