This week, I planned out time to focus on my business ideas, (writing out plans and goals), as well as establishing a good workflow and creating strategies for growth on my current social media platforms. So far, I had a few distractions to pop up BUT I still utilize the time I had left to start my planning. I am truly learning that I will make time for the things that I want to make time for. If I have a goal of writing one chapter for a book draft or mapping out my entrepreneurial goals for next year, my intention should be placed on maximizing the space I have NOW or at that moment to accomplish those things. It becomes very depressing when you feel like you only have an hour a day or week to dedicate to your business or thirty minutes to emerge in your craft, but it can be liberating to accept the truth that you have the ability to make the most of whatever time, opportunity, or moment that you have. The reason why some of us give up so quickly on things is because we fail to recognize the space that we have right in front us. I am not referring to a physical space, but a moment in time. I am learning to find the opportunities within my routine/schedule to focus on my NEXT in life. We may not notice how much “space” we actually have until we move out the distractions, the comparisons, and the excuses. Once we move out those “time wasters”, we can envision the plans for the business, start the new book, or even create a new routine because we used the “space” we had.
One last thing, please do not compare your space to someone else’s. Appreciate what you have been given. Sometimes our specific lifestyle is what’s needed for the goals we trying to accomplish. My weekday mornings may not be used to work out like the next person, but I like to focus on content creation, (with no distractions) and that works for me. You may work from home and have time during the day to work on your creative pursuits while someone else is more comfortable spending a late night working on their dream after working all day at the office because it gives them something to look forward to as they stay motivated to continue pushing. Do what works for you! We all may not use our spaces the same, (currently my living room is an art space….no TV or couch but just art supplies and desks LOL), but we all have the capability to maximize them.
