Do you have a pocket of time set aside to get important tasks done? Days, weeks, months, etc., will come and go. But tasks important to you often might not get done unless you set aside the time to do them.
A time pocket is a specific length of time within your day, or week, that is set aside to do something. Here are two examples of how you can use time pockets in your life:
A) You're waiting for some extra time to magically come into your life to begin learning how to speak French. That time never seems to arrive. By the way, it never will--unless you make that time. So, you set up a 'French Time Pocket' from 8:00 to 9:00pm on Mondays and Fridays and you use this time to begin learning French. Nothing except a major emergency should interfere with your French Time Pocket, and within a few weeks, you should begin to have a beginners French vocabulary.
B) You love to surf the net, but you're spending three hours each night doing so and you can't get anything else done. The dishes are piling in the sink, the laundry is overflowing and the dust bunnies have taken over your furniture. Get everything back in control by scheduling an 'Internet Time Pocket' of 10:00 to 10:30 each night. That will give you 210 minutes per week to surf the net, but you'll also have plenty of time to catch up on your cleaning.
Whether you are NOT spending enough time doing something, or you're spending TOO MUCH time doing something, creating time pockets in your life can help.
