How to be adept at time management and save hours of wasted time

The most underrated skill; time management.

Here’s how to be a master at it and save 10+ hours you’ve wasted this week.

Time management is one of the most improtant skills we must learn from a young age.

Nothing in life will wait for us and we must meet deadlines each and every day for various tasks and goals.

Let’s begin:

1. Plan Out Your Day

If you don’t write a plan for HOW you will use your hours

Then there is a good chance you will waste them.

Failing to plan is planning to fail.

Here’s how to add more hours to your day:

• The night before, plan the entire day
• Allocate each task according to the time it needs to be done
• Most important one’s come first

Doing so will save you hours of procrastination as you will know what needs to be done.

2. Wake Up At 04:00 AM

This habit alone has saved me countless hours over the last few years.

Rising at 04:00 helps you allocate a work block before everyone even wakes up.

You are in silence, with no distractions.

Here’s how to make this a habit:

• Prioritize your night-time routine
• Be in bed by 21:00
• No caffeine after 12:00 PM

3. Prioritize Important Tasks

Any task or goal that is important to you, must be done first thing in the morning.

Anything that is demanding or hard

When done first thing in the morning on a fresh state the results are always better.

Example of a Morning Routine:

• Rise + Cold Shower
• Plan the Day
• Grab a cup of coffee + get to work

This can be done in 20-30m and then you can dedicate 1-3h to your work before your day even starts.

4. Challenge Yourself

It is important to make life fun wherever you can.

A fun thing to do is to challenge yourself with an activity you do daily by trying to do it just a little faster.

Set a timer and try to beat your previous time.

Apply this fun challenge by:

• Doing an activity faster in less total time
• Doing more at the same time
• Keep track of progress as you improve.

5. Consistency

The most important determining factor to all of this is if you will remain consistent.

Everyone can have 2-3 near-perfect days where they manage to do so many tasks

But what about 30, 50, or even 100 days?

Here’s How to avoid slip-ups:

• Be clear with your goals
• Manage daily expectations
• Set clear goals for each stage of your journey
• Break goals down into daily actionable steps.

Why emotional intimacy is important for a healthy relationship and how to create it

The foundation of any healthy relationship is emotional intimacy.

Meaning, you regularly show interest in and care about each other’s internal world.

HOW TO CREATE EMOTIONAL INTIMACY
A THREAD 🧵:

Emotional intimacy is the process of intentionally connecting with your partner through actions that allow them to feel: seen, heard, and understood.

In order to have emotional intimacy, we have to practice vulnerable sharing.

It’s through vulnerable sharing that we learn to trust our partners.
VULNERABLE SHARING LOOKS LIKE:
– sharing parts of our past that make us who we are today
– opening up when we feel insecure or anxious
– having difficult conversations that make us uncomfortable.
– asking for our needs to be met
QUESTIONS TO START VULNERABLE SHARING:

1. What is your best and worst memory from childhood?

2. What did you get from your parents that you needed, and what do you feel like you missed?

3. How do you liked to be loved? (this will change regularly)

4. When do you feel most confident and when do you feel most insecure?

5. What is the greatest lesson you’ve learned in the past year?

6. What’s something impactful that’s happened to you that you’ve never shared with anyone else?

Emotional intimacy is also formed through intimacy actions.

Intimacy actions show us that are partner considers us, listens to us, and keeps us working as a team even life gets busy.

Ex:
– ordering your partner take out and putting it in the fridge with a note for them

– sending a “I’m so grateful you’re in my life” text message

– doing the dishes or helping out around the house

– offering to take something off their plate ex: “I’ll get the oil changed”

– planning something spontaneous and fun that you normally wouldn’t do (mini golf, a hike, etc)

– grabbing them a book on a new subject they’re super passionate about

– planning an at home date (watching a netflix movie and popping popcorn)

By consistently showing up in these ways for ourselves and our partner, we create a safe space for mutual freedom and evolution.
