Seven Keys to Living Timefully, from Tom Evans Monday 12 January 2015 PDF Print By clearing your mind, you make space for decision-making clarity and remove thoughts that would usually serve as barriers to your best ideas. Would you like to get more done in 2015 than 2014? Meditation, mindfulness and timefulness trainer Tom Evans knows how to do so: “Anyone who puts aside ten minutes a day to meditate will be more relaxed, happy and creative as a result. “By clearing your mind, you make space for decision-making clarity and remove thoughts that would usually serve as barriers to your best ideas.” Tom leads a movement called 'Living Timefully', which is mindfulness with time management at its core. Tom has compiled seven time-full and mind-full ways to take control of the passage of time. Key 1: Meditate daily It is thought that every minute spent in the meditative state, gets added back to our lives. We either save any time spent by having a better day or add a minute to our longevity. When we learn to enter the meditative state with our eyes open, time bends and stretches so we get more done in less time. Key 2: Make a date with your Creative Self Each and every day, even if it’s just for 10 minutes, a date with our Creative Self is like a supercharge for the mind, body and soul. We might write ‘morning pages’, pick up a guitar and strum or visit an art gallery. Just going for a walk in the park and imagining the most amazing future counts too. Key 3: Trust your gut & follow your heart Our head ‘shouts’ quite loudly. So much so that sometimes the signals from our gut and heart get overlooked and overruled. So, for each decision you have to make, ask your gut for a Yes or a No. Next ask your heart if it is cold, lukewarm or boiling hot about it. If your gut and heart give you the green light, proceed with gusto. If not, ask them what would have to change in order to get their blessing. Key 4: Create a To Love List It’s said when we love the work we do, we never work as such again. So ditch your To Do list and start a To Love list. At the top, put the things you love to do first and tackle your list from the top down. If there are things on there you don’t like doing so much, either outsource them or be creative about how you could love doing them. Key 5: Sync with natural time Our modern calendar has caused us to fall out of sync with natural time. Our creativity waxes and wanes with the seasons, the phase of the Moon and the hours in each day. When we discover our naturally creative times, we go with the flow and stop pushing water up a temporal hill. Key 6: Be thankful At the end of each day, either in a journal or just in your head as it hits the pillow, reflect on the highlights of your day. As you drop off into slumber, say one last ‘Thank You’ for the day to your bed for giving you a good night’s sleep. Key 7: Perform a Random Act of Kindness When we get into the habit of performing a random of kindness to a stranger each day, something rather magical happens. Other people, who weren’t aware of our act or the recipient of our act, perform similar kindnesses to us. The ratio of kindnesses is more than two bestowed back on us for everyone we give out. The result is massive time saving. Tom’s objective is to get everyone in the world to meditate, so has made his ten-minute 'Be Calm' is available free of charge.
