The Ultimate Time Management Hack: Save 35 Hours a Week

Time is the most valuable non-renewable resource there is in the entire world.

Time is the only thing we never get back.

Money we can get back.

Relationships we can get back.

Energy & willpower we can get back.

However, once a moment has passed it is gone forever. Our time is limited. You know that cliche saying you hear everybody saying – “time flies.” You want to know why so many people say that, especially to the younger generation?

Because so many people wake up one day and go “OH SHIT” and realize they weren’t doing what they were supposed to be doing! They were squandering they’re time doing the wrong things and not focusing on the shit that really matters.

This a huge reason why I am so big on morning rituals, productivity, and intentional living. I want to make every day count. We have the gift of freedom and opportunity, the greatest gift you could ever give anyone.

So are you ready for the #1 time management hack that can add another 35 hours of time to your week?

Here it is:

GET RID OF YOUR TELEVISION.

Throw it away, donate it, give it to your neighbor. It does not matter but get it out of your reach.

Statistics show that the average american is watching 5 hours of TV per day. I know many people watch less, like maybe closer to 2 hours per day but still. DAMN. Do the math for how many hours that is a year and it’s mind blowing.

I know this sounds extremely intense but if you are serious about what really matters, like building relationships, generating wealth, improving the mind, managing your body, succeeding in business, traveling, and experiencing epic shit – then trust me, just do it.

I haven’t had a TV in 3 years, and let me tell you I haven’t missed a thing. If something big happens in the news, I catch it word of mouth and I get to hear people tell me their perspective and their thoughts. I get to ask questions and engage people. It’s a win-win.

If I really want to catch a sports game, I go over to a friends house or meet at a bar and make it interactive and social.

Honestly, I don’t see myself getting a TV for a long time. Most likely until I have a family.

This article isn’t about shunning people for how they spend their time. It really doesn’t matter to me. This is about bringing awareness to your life and how you spend your time.

If you’re not excited about you’re progress towards where you really want to be, then maybe it’s time for a change. This hack is a great way to get your time back and increase your productivity.

The next time you use the excuse I hear all day long – “I don’t have the time,” just remember that’s NOT an excuse.

You don’t find time to get things done, you create time by valuing it and doing things like getting rid of your TV.

“If you don’t value your time, neither will others. Stop giving away your time and talents–start charging for it.” —Kim Garst

I’m always interested in learning more about how I can manage my time better. What are some of your favorite time management strategies or systems? Please let me know.

Much love,

Nitch

    My personal experience through developing a career and lifestyle in two years post college: time = success.

    I’ve always been focused on being a hard worker. The day’s add up fast and what did I get in return? Experience. Experience is what has made me a greater asset. I use the word asset in terms of being a member of society. At work I am more qualified to be a leader. In the gym I have skills, strength, and a mental toughness that bleeds to others that I’m not in there wasting my time. In my social life I know how to treat people with respect and honesty to develop relationships that will last a lifetime. Am I perfect? Absolutely not. Do I have things to work on? Of course. Do I use my time as a variable to improve everyday? Yes.

    This article is spot on. Getting rid of the distractions in life that aren’t helping me become a stronger individual has brought me to where I am today. Would I change a thing in my past? Maybe, but I can’t. Living in the now with a conscious mindset of how I use my time is going to ENSURE I meet my goals.

    To me, time is success. I’ll forever be hungry for greatness and it’s the minutes I’m aware of my own decisions and mental efforts that make sure I get there.

      I’ve spent a bunch of time with you and I confirm you’re a DAMN hard worker.

      “Time is success” – love it.
