51. Make time matter

It has been 97 days since I made a big career change. The change was one of the best decisions I have made for myself and I hope I am able to more positively impact other's lives as well.

In these 97 days, I have had more time on my hands than I have had in a good 25 years. And instead of celebrating the defragging, the long walks, the connection with dozens of friends, the side gigs I have stirred up, the passing of a big counseling licensure exam, I find myself paranoid about how I have spent my time. It seems the inner-critic and anal-retentive time-manager is never far from my conscious mind.

What I love about time is that regardless of what continent we were born on, our socio-economic status, gender, ethnicity, or level of education or income, we ALL have access to 168 wonderous hours a week. Time is the ultimate equalizer. I have been writing and thinking about this simple phenomenon for years, but it continues to amaze me.

Going forward, to shut up my inner-critic, I am going to log my 168 hours for a couple of weeks. What did I do with my time? Sleep, work, human connection, networking, social media, exercise, time around the kitchen table, etc. Yes. You probably know this by know, but I love experiments and logs. It is a wild & weird fact -- but simple exercises of documentation can change how we think, feel and behave.
