Year End Breathing Space Perspective - Breathing Space Blog

A reader asks: In your books you write that we are control and responsible for how our time is used each day, but I don't feel that way. How do I increase my feeling of control and sense of responsibility for how my time is consumed?

The Breathing Space Perspective:

1. Begin to recognize your routine, time-guzzling behaviors such as ceremoniously arranging the items on your desk, over-reading the newspaper, or scouring the web.

2. Avoid playing the victim. Stop believing that external circumstances cause you to be time-pressed while not acknowledging your participation and willingness to be a victim.

3. Take ownership; that is, lay claim and accept responsibility for what occurs in your life. "Own" your time.
