The Auto-Pilot Mode

Getting in an auto-pilot mode with your daily life makes everything move fast, and life becomes too much of a routine. We think we are busy and don't have time but that's not true. We do have the time if the work is our priority, provided we know what is important to do.

Most of our time is spent doing what we have decided to spend it on, so we have to choose our priorities wisely.

Key Ideas

Time is Limited Yet Abundant

Most of us conflict with time. Time is a paradox and is both limited and abundant at the same time. We can do great things with time, provided we know how to use this invisible resource.

Use Time Intentionally

Once we realize that every moment is a gift, we will not waste it but use it intentionally, for something important and meaningful.

It is important that we set some clear priorities and create space for them. 

Contemplating Death

This exercise makes us value our limited time and sheds away the unnecessary activities from our day. 

We start living a vivid life, and slow down, becoming fully present in the moment, savoring time like a limited edition treat before it vanishes.

How To Avoid Zero Days

On a daily basis, do something, no matter how small, which has you walking toward your vision of life. In other words, your goals.

Dropping “Hints”

It shows that you two are not comfortable communicating openly and clearly with one another. 

State your feelings and desires openly. And make it clear that the other person is not necessarily responsible or obligated to them but that you’d love to have their support.

Holding the Relationship Hostage

For example, if someone feels like you’ve been cold to them, instead of saying, “I feel like you’re being cold sometimes,” they will say, “I can’t date someone who is cold to me." 

It’s crucial for both people in a relationship to know that negative thoughts and feelings can be communicated safely to one another without it threatening the relationship itself.
