One Minute Motivator # 79

Turn off you TV to turn on your life.

Even though TVs get lighter every year, they are a huge weight on your life. Every day a new study comes out showing the more you watch TV, the more you tend to weigh, the more depressed you are, the less money you make and so on. Do you really have to watch that much news? It is no accident that most of the ads that run during the news are for prescription drugs. And watching TV before you go to sleep almost guarantees bad dreams. Cut your TV time down and use the time saved to move your life ahead. Exercise, read uplifting and educational material, focus on your relationships, whatever. Just cut down on TV to move your life ahead.

Be more realistic in order to be more punctual.

The number one reason you are late for something is that we tend to underestimate how long a task will take. This backs up your day and each failure makes things worse. Researchers call this the “planning fallacy” which shows that certain people have a strong tendency to underestimate task completion times. Type A’s are better at this than Type B’s because they pay more attention to detail and tend to be more “buttoned up”. So if you want to improve your punctuality, you need to get better at estimating how long each task you are involved with, will take. Break each task down into detailed steps to get a better and more realistic grasp of the time involved. Then face up to the fact you can’t do it all, you have to cut back on your commitments. Planning to do more, doesn’t create the time to do it, time stays the same. And so does you ability to only do so much in a given amount of time. Get real about your time management and get on with your life.
