What is Lifestyle Design Time Management?
Lifestyle design time management is a breakthrough approach to time management that is exclusively concerned with replacing poor or insufficient time management habits with new tailor-made habits by looking at existing lifestyle patterns in 5 key areas – Spirituality, Relationships, Financial activities, Emotional and Physical Well-Being.
When you get to the heart of the subject matter, lifestyle design time management is at its core all about reinforcing time management habits that deliver on what I refer to as ultimate happiness and peace of mind – even bliss; but most of all it’s time management with a specific intention. And that intention is to establish consistent, meaningful and rewarding lifestyle habits and patterns that gives you a chance to experience balance, harmony, increased productivity and freedom by creating operational blueprints that you can live with and use day to day.
How Does Lifestyle Design Time Management Work?
As alluded to earlier, lifestyle design time management is a specialized kind of time management. It can also be classified as an advanced and modern time management approach to replace the traditional “old” industrial time management model that focuses on getting as many tasks completed as possible in a finite period of time to increase productivity or add to the bottom line.
Although lifestyle design time management can help with producing the results mentioned above or things like: setting time for making it to a child’s soccer game or recital, leaving work and being home just in time for dinner – or even scheduling time for a well deserved weekend off in peace, that’s not quite the whole picture of how lifestyle design time management works.
Lifestyle Design Weekly Planning Example
To best explain how lifestyle design time management works, think about the last time you planned out a hectic week and started telling yourself, “this next week is going to totally suck because I got so much work to do and turn in by Friday…I have 3 presentations to finish (or a couple reports or papers to submit) and I don’t even know how I’m going to be able to get enough sleep, make it to work on time by 8am every morning, prep my clothes (and pack a lunch the night before because I won’t be taking lunch outside the office this week), and also make sure the kids are ready early enough in the morning, fed and dropped off at school or daycare on my way to the office. Oh, and I still don’t know what we’re going to be doing for dinner this week. I haven’t done any grocery shopping. Maybe I’ll order delivery and I think I have some frozen dinners- yeah, that should cover us. And Junior has a Dr.’s appointment on Thursday – I totally forgot about that. And I think we’re supposed to have a birthday date with Carol and Dave on Saturday – and I still don’t know what to get them.” This is the kind of reality that we’re all living in some way or another. It’s extreme but we all have some part of our lives that sound just like the example above.
Asking the Tough Time Use and Motive Questions
The way the 24 Hour Blueprint lifestyle design time management system works is by looking at a situation like the one above and gathering actionable insights by boldly asking questions that reveal one’s daily level of consciousness. This begins with self reflective questions like:
Why am I doing all of this? What are my true motives? Is fear driving all of this? Obligation? Guilt? Overachievement? Who am I trying to impress, please or fool? Is all this aligned with my sense of mission?
Where and how can I draw the appropriate boundaries for myself so that I can ask for help or just remove some of these to-do’s without feeling guilty for doing so?
And most of all how can I make these changes once and for all so I never have to feel overwhelmed about all the things I have to get done and stop judging myself for not producing 96 hours worth of work in a day?
And given that there is only 24 hours in a day, what realistically will get done and what will not – and who do I need to tell upfront that I won’t be doing what I may’ve overzealously promised to do?
Along with all these questions, the overall lifestyle design time management approach helps you take a samurai sword to your daily tasks and activities and schedule ONLY the things that will bring you ultimate happiness, satisfaction, and peace of mind.
And this process begins with a 24 Hour Blueprint assessment-quiz where you use a 5 point satisfaction scale to rate yourself in 5 key areas of life:
Spirituality, Relationships, Financial actions, Emotional and Physical Well-Being.
The average of your ratings from the total of these five key areas gives you a lifestyle score and that’s where the lifestyle design time management model takes shape.
After this, the next question to ask based on scores is “what do I need to do or stop doing to improve my scores and does my schedule reflect the time commitments needed to improve?” Answering this questions requires a rigorous process of examining what goes into your calendar and why. And after this point, the lifestyle design time management process moves the user toward better time management habits.
What are the Benefits of Lifestyle Design Time Management?
There are countless benefits of lifestyle design time management. But some of the immediate and noteworthy ones include:
- Superior focus from having a clear framework and way to rate, assess and score productivity and progress in the 5 key areas mentioned: Spirituality, Relationships, Finances, Emotions and Physical well-being
- Regaining a sense of control and focus on ONLY what matters daily vs. being sidetracked by an onslaught of daily distractions
- Achieving Ultimate Happiness, a kind of happiness that won’t leave you when things don’t go your way
- Peace of mind from knowing what you need to do and when without having to stress over it from one week to another
- Clarity from having a custom blueprint and understanding of what actions you need to take to ensure personal satisfaction consistently.
- Confidence to face the unexpected and unknown
