If you’ve read some of my recent articles, you probably sense my wish to let go of the unnecessary busyness in my life life and dwell more frequently in stillness.
This isn’t a new development.
- I’ve spoken about this pull sporadically over the past three years beginning with Entering the Forest of Many Delights.
- I continued the exploration in Making Space to See the Purity of Your Being, when one of my spiritual teachers – who happens to be a New York Times best selling author as well – disappeared on purpose for three years.
- Then I looked at it from a different angle when I explored How to Balance Work and Play.
Interestingly, the first two articles where written around my birthday month, when change always seems to be the order of the day, and the third as I entered the last quarter of my birthday year.
This past week of time tracking served as a wake-up call. It revealed activities which are not aligned with my values, priorities, and deepest goals. During the process, I looked at each aspect of my existence and asked, “Is this in line with my life purpose?” Time tracking also showed me precisely where I can simplify my life and stop wasting time.
Time-tracking can do this for you too. If you would like to give it a try, you can download and use my free time tracking log.
