“Yeah, whatever. You don’t know my life!”

So I was listening to a thought leader recently, and he said, “successful people don’t have more hours in the day than anyone else, they just have more hours of the day that they USE (productively)”.

That really stuck with me, and it got me thinking…

First, I realized how many times in my life I would have rolled my eyes at that quote thinking “yeah whatever, you don’t know my life”. Immediately annoyed.

You ever find yourself thinking that? Heck, maybe you’re thinking it right now 🤣

This time it felt different for me. Like a lightbulb moment as I started going through the other shifts I’ve made. Life threw me some curveballs over the past few years, as I’m sure it did for all of us, and I fell off my path for a while. I can honestly say that I’ve surprised even myself the past few months with a fast bounce back in multiple areas of my life!

I came back from vacation January 9th with a goal to invest some time into personal development every day. I am proud that I managed to meet that goal for the remainder of the month and keep it up to this day! I now have nearly 2 months of daily personal development.

I was thinking about this accomplishment and how sparse my learning calendar would have looked some of the months prior in comparison. I’ve been able to learn so much in that short span of time, with everything from audiobooks, courses, and even language training. That said, self-development was just the tip of the iceberg.

I also re-established a morning routine and started getting up earlier – first at 630, then 6, 545, 530, and now 5 AM… and to think just a few weeks prior I was saying “I’m not a morning person”.

Not long ago I was struggling just to drag myself out of bed in time to get ready for work! The new routine that I’ve created for myself gives me more time to be productive and start my day off on a high with a meditation, learning, and a workout before heading into my workday feeling energized.

I should also say that while I do try to be in bed earlier, I still don’t go to sleep any earlier than I did before. What’s funny is that despite going to sleep around the same time and consistently getting up much earlier, I actually feel like I have more energy than I did before.

I’m getting LESS sleep, and yet I’m feeling MORE energized.

I went from eating more takeout and junk foods and a sporadic workout schedule back to a more balanced healthy diet and consistent workouts.

I went from struggling to get myself going in the morning and being distracted all the time to being more focused and productive in and outside of work.

I went from procrastinating on the things I needed to do to achieve my goals to finally taking action and making progress toward the launch of my own coaching practice.

I also went from mindless scrolling on social media or binge-watching TV every evening to being more mindful with how I spend my time.

I restricted social media time and started limiting TV time. Instead, I use the extra time to cook healthy meals, working toward my goals, read, meditate, and walk my dog. I bookend my days with healthy habits, and I don’t have any more time than I did last year.

There are several different strategies that I used, and continue to use, to help me make these shifts when I fall off track and hit one of those life lulls. I can’t wait to start sharing those this year!

I have a program coming that will equip you with the mental tools to make this kind of quick transformation toward your own goals. Stay tuned for more on that ☺️

In the meantime, I am so excited to put my psychology degree, coaching certification, and everything else I’ve been learning over the past few years to good use!

I am now working with clients one on one for transformation coaching. If any of this resonated with you and you struggle to make these shifts on your own, I would love to help!

    1. Absolutely! It’s all a matter of mindset to support reprioritizing your time. Most of us are stuck in negative thought loops and patterns that weigh us down. If we can overwrite those, we can make all kinds of awesome shifts.
