Have you ever took inventory of your time? Measured how much time is being spent and where it’s being spent?
I once read a devotional where we had to take inventory of our time for a few days. In my early 20’s my time looked like this:
8am – Wake up
Stay in the bed for another 2 hours scrolling through social media.
Get up, shower and make something to eat by 11am.
Hmmm…I should start my reading for the week but I feel like reorganizing my closet all of a sudden, so let’s use about 3 hours for that.
2pm – I’m exhausted so now I need a nap before I start my assignments for the week.
Then what was supposed to be a quick nap turned into a full six hours of sleep.
Now its 8pm and I’ve accomplished absolutely nothing for the day and I need to get ready for work tomorrow.
If you’re going to walk in your purpose, some of the things you do are going to have to change. But the way to begin identifying what needs to be changed is by first taking inventory.
Are your habits leading you closer and deeper into your purpose?
Are you investing the appropriate amount of time into researching, planning and organizing what’s needed for your purpose to be fulfilled?
Ask yourself this: What am I doing?
One of the things that I learned when I really started walking in my purpose, was that I can’t do everything and be everywhere for everyone.
Likewise, you’re going to have to learn to say no. No, I can’t come out to happy hour today, I need to work on my business plan. No, I can’t sit here and binge-watch Power, I need to be reading on how to better connect with my clients.
What are you doing?
Is watching others fulfilling their purpose going to magically make yours appear?
Are your habits creating the right opportunities for your purpose to be taken to the next level?
Is swiping all day on Facebook, Instagram & Twitter feeding life into your purpose?
What are you doing?
If you can’t answer that question, then great! This is the perfect opportunity for you to create habits that will help you walk in your purpose every day!
- Take Inventory of your time and daily habits.
- Identify the areas/habits that need to be changed.
- Implement new habits that will bring you closer to fulfilling purpose.
Time makes us all rich. We have the same amount of time as Bill Gates and Beyoncé.
What we do with our time is what will determine how (and if) we walk in our purpose.
