How often do you water your daisy? About time management

Often times when we meet a daisy we think of the typical “You want me?” You do not want me?” To “know” if anyone else is interested in us. However, instead of thinking about someone else, do it yourself and ask yourself: Do I want it or not? Am I afraid of loving myself? Am I managing my time well to cultivate and feel satisfied with what I am doing?

    About time and life management

    We have had to live in a time that moves forward quickly and requires us to live fast and even under stress, as if we are on ‘autopilot’ when it comes to getting things done and it will not cost us a lot of money. efforts to complete tasks. routines such as driving, going to and from work, etc. We live so fast that we spend the day ritualizing habits and ultimately our brain automates them.

    But What if we did the same with our own lives, with our relationships, with our goals? What happens when we get up and go to bed doing the same things, without surpassing ourselves, without reaching a goal, without rethinking anything, without looking at where we really want to go, what we want to do or who do we want to be?

    Putting on autopilot can take us away from those things that are really important to us. If we spend too many hours at work, we may not be spending enough time in our relationship, friendships, or ourselves.

    It is true that it is becoming more and more difficult to find the time to think beyond our daily lives and to set in motion life projects that go beyond daily responsibilities. However, if this happens, it is possible that you are not managing your time properly and you neglect some things that are also important to you. Once we learn to deal with it, we will have a lot more awareness and a lot more control over our lives and as a result we will feel more satisfied and fulfilled.

      What is life? Time (+ space)

      Ask yourself if everything you do today brings you closer to where you want to be tomorrow. Ask yourself if you are devoting enough time to things that are important to you, to your vital priorities.

      To do this, I invite you to do the following exercise. Take paper and pencil and draw a daisy. You are the daisy, so on each petal write the important areas of your life (family, professional, etc.) and think about what you would like to improve on each of them. Based on this, set goals. If you find this too important to begin with, start with the areas you overlook that are most important to you.

      Think about what resources you need and decide on small goals, which are the steps you need to take to reach that goal. The difference between goal and objective lies in the fact that the goal is the destination we want to reach, and goals are small actions that help us reach it.

      For example, if I wanted to improve my English, I could set myself as a goal: “Take the C1 exam in January 2019” and as goals: (1) Study English one hour a day, (2) Participate in the tandems of language exchange, (3) Whenever you watch a series, do it in English.

      It is important that goals are personalized and achievable. There is no point in setting very ambitious goals if we do not want to achieve them. They also need to be measurable, as a goal of “going to the gym three days a week” is better than “exercising regularly”.

      Once you have your goals, plan your day or week and set priorities. Not all activities are equally urgent or important, so prioritizing becomes a key aspect of managing your time.

      Other important aspects to take into account when managing daily time so that you can achieve the proposed goals are:
