Managing Your Time
Time can't be slowed down or stopped but you can choose how you invest your time. Kyle says “if you control your time, you can control your life”. How you speak about time says a lot about the person you are.
When you’re trying to move from a low sphere up to a higher sphere, its inevitable you’re going to face resistance which shows up in many different forms. Kyle reads an extract from the great book written by Steven Pressfield on how resistance will show up and how you can overcome it.
Nothing forces focus like intense time pressure. Work will expand to fit the time you give it. Its critical you work in focused blocks of time and give yourself a deadline. If you plan and prepare correctly, its a great way to increase your productivity and stay focused. Kyle talks about a technique Zen Buddhist’s use in order to get stuff done.
The Time Vampires
The truth is most people don't value their time. 99% of people don't see how precious their time is, and are only waiting for the weekend to come. People aren't living a meaningful life. Time vampires are people trying to suck the life out of you. The ‘drop in’s’ and people trying to grab some of your time. Its critical you slay the time vampires and guard you time. You want to cut the head off it, stuff it with an onion and bury it. Don't let anyone invade your focused time.
