How Spend Your Time

Posted on the 30 August 2014 by Luciano Pacini
How spend your timeI want to start strait with a question for you: do you like how you spend your time? I don’t know exactly what you do, but I can guess. Working, hanging out with friends, spending time with your family, doing your hobbies and so on. This is just your usual routine, something you have always done and which you have learned to do it better and better. Or at least, this is what you think.  I made you that question because I guess actually if you look deeper inside, you may not be completely satisfied of yourself. The problem is that while you are doing all these things, rules of society push you behave in a predetermined way, as you can talk about either work and private life. It happens in order to fulfill your duties, but in the end there is not much difference between you and a machine. You are always busy and despite this, you feel like you don’t have enough time to do everything, and more, among all of this quantity of commitments, there is almost nothing of what you really want to do.
But why does this happen? Don’t worry, now I will tell you why.I am sure that many times you have postpone such important things in your life to deal before with those considered urgent. I am also sure that many others times you wait that passes an emergency situation thinking only after you would have the best conditions. Sure, sometimes this attitude is necessary, but I contend that most of the time you just assume automatically this behave because of conformity.That’s what I call the “Laziness of the routine”. Because is true that your habits make your life busy, but on the other side, make you also tired of doing always the same things, and consequently lazy of doing something new. And so what you can do? I tell you about! Remember that emergency situations are certainties in your life, regardless, so get a reason of it and don’t be surprised if you will have many of those to deal with.Don’t confuse “urgent” with “important”. People in life make too often this mistake, they do coincide what they must do with what they want to do. The best thing would be something that almost nobody does, you have to be able to create this situation in your life: “what you want to do should influence what you must do”. This is one secret to make an happy life. But too often people, just follow what they must do, and the worse is that they convince themselves that those things are also what they want.What you should learn is this: “urgent” for a big part is determined by external events, and for you in many cases is just an illusion; instead of, “important" is determined by your heart and that is what creates your values. What you really want, matters more of what others want from you. But doesn’t end here. Many people understand this part, but still don’t know what they really want, or also they make the confusion that I was talking before, convincing themselves of something wrong.Sometimes is also good just do what your heart wants, without waiting too much for some sort of favourable circumstances in order to realize your dreams. Because when it comes achieving something important, the conditions are not so good, like ever! On the contrary, it will be easier for you notice only obstacles that will pop up from almost everywhere.On the other side, when conditions will be favourable, you will probably be distracted doing some society’s duties. So will be better for you never rely on appearances. Is not always easy to recognize positive and negative situations. Maybe this world is not intended to be perfect, and you won’t see an age where will reign justice and prosperity for all, but at the same time, I am sure so many things can be improved and you can give your contribution to leave this world better than how you have found it. Try to make every day at least some small steps in the right direction, without waiting until conditions are perfect. The conditions will never be perfect, but I am sure if you really believe in what you want, after some inevitable initial hurdles, your efforts will be rewarded.The best time to begin was already long time ago…The second best time is now!In your life you must looking for the right desire, that’s inside you, not outside. Something that will make you begin as you really want. Just start, don’t be scared, or you just want to be like everybody? If you really want something, more than the usual things, you need to go against the wind to realize “The aspirations of your heart”. And when finally you will catch the trade winds in your sails, will be easier for you; but this will be after. You already “have”, or better, you already “are” the initial spark, something that would give a vital boost to your “New Life”. This is very important;  don’t wait for a favourable wind, but learn how riding in the storm. For this you have to start, if not this can’t happen, because for a larger part depends on you, because a big mistake people do is looking for far away those thing which are already inside their hearts; so while you are going in your own and right way, I know when you don’t expect, the wind will turn and run in your favour. In this way you will discover the World and Yourself.
