You know those uber-efficient people who seem to be able to get everything done with time to spare and look calm and relaxed all the time?  Neither do I.  Because they don’t exist. We’re all human and we all have limitations.  To even the playing field, we’re all given the same 24 hours in a day.  It’s up to us to choose how to spend our precious time in ways that serves us.  Yes, I said “us” and not “everybody around us.”  Sounds selfish?  Not at all.  The more you focus on keeping yourself healthy and happy, the more you can do for others. How do you even begin to get everything done?  Let’s find out… Accept that you’re human being (not a machine) Although the Industrial Revolution introduced the concept of people as machines, it’s a lie.  You can’t drone on 24/7 being efficient and productive every minute of the day or night.  Even machines need to go offline for maintenance now and then. Machines were built for doing.  You’re a human being who needs to weave the doing into your inherent state as a being. Focus on your top 3 values Life gets a whole lot easier when you know what your top values are.
