The Transformation Show

Mar 21, 2019

How you spend your time is how you spend your life. “I gave my life to become the person I am right now,” this quote has really got me thinking. Everything you’ve done up to this point has gotten you here. So think about it, was it worth it? Every choice we make is a tradeoff. On this episode of The Transformation Show, we are discussing how you spend your time. Do you spend your time doing the things that bring you joy and fulfillment? We want to get you thinking about how you want to spend your life, so listen to this episode to hear how you can transform your life by changing the way you spend your time.

Every choice you make is a trade-off

If you think about the fact that every choice you make is a trade-off then you can begin to really question how you are spending your time. Analyze what you are doing each day and whether it brings you joy. Obviously not every little task will bring you pleasure, but on the whole, are you happy? Or are you too caught up in the hustle and grind and working toward a future that you think will make you happy? Oftentimes, when we aren’t happy with our present reality we then come home and turn on the TV to escape.

Where are you getting your fulfillment?

Does how you spend your time fulfill you? If not, then where are you getting your fulfillment? Are you getting to do something with your life that you are really passionate about? Are you stuck in a life you don’t enjoy because it provides you a lifestyle you think you need? Think about what your true calling could be. With the power of the internet and social media, you can create a side hustle that could lead to a full-time gig. You may not think you are sacrificing, but the truth is, every choice you make is a sacrifice. You are trading your time for your life. Are you making the sacrifices that are right for you? Are your sacrifices helping you to become the best version of you?

Live your life for yourself, not someone else

What you want doesn’t have to make sense to anyone but you. We all may have those people in our lives that just don’t understand what our goals are. It is important to remember that this life is yours and yours alone. It can be hard to remember that with those we love judging us by their own standards of what they think happiness should be. But people who are more successful than you will never put you down. It is only the people that haven’t achieved their goals that will put you down. You can be a positive force in other people’s lives by supporting them and helping them achieve their own goals.

Do you want more out of life? Then spend your time wisely

If you want more out of life you will have to make a trade. Everything we do is a tradeoff. If you say yes to one thing you are saying no to another. If you really want to accomplish something you must be willing to put in the effort and make the time for it. We all have an hour a day that we can give toward achieving a goal. Think about what you can do and how you can rearrange your calendar to make the most out of your life. Periodically you can check in with yourself about how you are spending your time. One of our main goals for this show is to get people thinking about how they want to spend their life, hopefully, we’ve got you thinking. So now it’s time for you to take action. Analyze how you can get more out of life by making more time for your goals
