⏰ What do you spend time on?💸

⏰ What do you spend time on?💸

Do you ever wonder where the time goes? We all have the same 24 hours, yet it feels like time is slipping away. What's worse, you have a sneaky suspicion that you could be using your time more effectively.

If you want to know where you time is going, try tracking it. You don't have to track every single minute of the day, but you should have a general idea of where you are spending the most time. If you don't know where it's going, you won't be able to change anything.

Start tracking your day in 30-minute blocks. It doesn't have to be incredibly granular, just put down what you spent your time most on during that block. You don't have to stop every 30 minutes, either. Just take a break every 2-3 hours to write down your 30-minute increments.

Use your bullet journal or a pocket notebook to keep a simple log of your time. It's fast and you don't have to download or learn any new app. Just write out each hour of the day in a column then  split the hour(s) in half, like for 30 minutes each :)

Whether it's in work or your personal life, tracking your time will help you be much more aware of where your time is really going. It will also help you be more conscious of how you're spending your time in the moment so as not to disappoint yourself later.

When you have an awareness of your time it's easier to make changes and pivot to the habits, goals, and people you want to give your time and attention to. It's a fast way to a better life.
