Turn On Brilliance, Switch Off Time Management?

Have you ever worked on something that you were absolutely possessed about? You weren’t working you were obsessed. Time flew by, there were no hiccups and inspiration was in everything you did. You were performing at a level of high quality and you produced a lot. You were in a zone of contentment and clarity.

What you were experiencing was your brilliance. The end and the path were clear. For most people these moments are rare. But that not need be the case.

We have a tendency to think in tasks rather than outcomes. We clutter our lives on goals rather than the experiences. We lust after achievement instead of filling our lives with true passion. Passion is filling, lust is exhausting. We tend to seek pride instead of satisfaction of fulfillment. Pride is something we feel internally. Satisfaction is what we experience when we have made an impact.

Time management is a focus on scheduling tasks to get done all the conflicting obligations we face when we are living someone else’s agenda. When you allow your purpose to live and your brilliance to breath, time disintegrates. The outcome is lasting and the result is larger than life.

If you shift your thinking to how you can become a creator instead of a tasker then you will begin to see time differently. Before you sit down to make a list of chores, (Tasks) think about how the outcome feels to you. Imagine how the results can positively change someone else’s life.

Awaken all your senses; the light, colors, size, distance, sounds, frequency, amplitude, smells, pungent, sweet, touch, hard, soft, of the place close or far, in the mountains or at sea level. The more real you make something before you do it the easier it is to live it.

To really make it more real, try to move your thoughts from your head into your torso. Take a deep breath saying to yourself, “I am now entering the calm clear space!” exhale and strengthen the experience from a calm clear perspective. Repeat your breathing a few times repeating the expression. You will sense clutter disappearing.

When you actually begin the experience keep redirecting your thoughts back to this centered calm space. Whenever you feel your thoughts inside your head, take a breath and move them back to your torso.

Try this right now. On your next activity. Remember, it’s like shampooing; Apply, experience, and repeat. Be calm, be centered, be Brilliant.

  1. Thank you I have to say I could absolutely relate to all of it. I also have started looking at some of your products, I am sure we will be speaking real soon.

  2. Hi Mike
    Good to see you doing a blog! Your mind is so fertile, it’s great you can have an ongoing outlet and interaction with your audience.
    I agree that spaciousness in our thoughts does wonders for the creation process. I’d add the suggestion to bring in the WHY of whatever you choose to do, which is always connected to Love (once we move past whatever fears have been keeping us stuck in a compulsive, task-oriented loop and into a place of CHOICE).
    May the force (of Love) be with you in all your endeavors this year!
