Need an extra hour

Have you ever felt like you needed a few more hours in a day? Like if you had just that extra 60 minutes each day, you will be able to work on your goal. It’s a common sentiment among many people. If you are one of them, I have good news for you. You probably have more spare time than you think. Nobody is productive for 24 hours each day.

When was the last time you kept a time log? It’s the easiest way to see which hours are your busiest. It’s also a shocker for many people when they finally realise just how few hours a day they use for productive work. I have seen cases where someone realised he spent less than two hours each day on productive tasks. The bulk of his time was spent on:

  1. Mindless internet surfing
  2. Lying in bed idle

Have you been guilty of any of the above? It is easy to reach for your phone hoping to reply a message and before you know it, an hour has passed and you find yourself on chrome reading the history of sliced bread.

To unlock more hours each day, do this:

  1. Identify which tasks you spend the most time on.
  2. Ask yourself if they are important.
  3. Cut out those that are not.
  4. Spend more time doing important tasks.
  5. Rinse and repeat.

  1. This is wholesome and a great reminder. Well we really do spend most of our time on our phones. I personally would have to strike a balance. I regret not having to read your articles always.


    1. The keyword is “intentionality.” You must be very specific in when and how you use your phone. I will be doing a post about that next week. Hope you will read it.
