Time management is about productivity and it can be about so much more! That is because time has both duration and depth. It is linear, occurring in measurable increments, AND it is highly subjective. We experience it differently, depending on the feelings and events that our moments intersect with.

My Heart-Based Time Management™ System offers tips and tools to increase your efficiency while it also invites you to explore life-transforming truths! As you take risks and learn skills for exercising your power of choice over your time, you develop the capacity to step off the daily treadmill and open to the timeless. Pausing to reflect, you open to the depths that time holds.

As you become still, like a moonlit lake, you experience how finding time to step back is a key (and active) component of self-care. Reflection develops your self-reference and builds, brick-by-brick, a solid foundation of wisdom.

Each pause offers a fresh opportunity to ground and energize yourself. Over and over, you re-connect with the moment, and with the energy that flows from that still-point.

But this isn’t simply about energy. No, there is more …
Exploring imagination and the creative process in his book Notes Toward a Supreme Fiction, Wallace Stevens wrote:

"Perhaps the truth depends on a walk around the lake."

When you pause, in the course of your activities and make space to reflect, you step beyond refreshing your energy or solving a problem, and can, if you are willing, embrace the timeless depths where spirituality resides. Whenever you pause to look within in this way, you affirm that your time and your life belong to you. You are autonomous. Grounded in profound solitude, you are connected with yourself and with all of life.

Opening to and claiming this level of connectedness and responsibility gives you dignity and purpose – a sense of purpose that informs and motivates your own search for truth. And I don’t mean truth with a capital T. Rather, I mean the rich and mysterious element of depth that we each can access in our lives, if we are willing and open.
What you discover may be disconcerting or comforting; it will assuredly be transformative! Finding time to open to your evolving truth is always a risk ... and always an adventure.

So, set aside time in your life and invite yourself in an open and loving way to take a walk around the lake. There you can listen to the quiet whisper of your inner truth, and when you do, you will always find something basic and unique.
