Daylight Saving Time – Hot Dog an Extra Hour

“If I only had more time in the day!”

This is the most famous excuse this side of the Mississippi for people not to engage their dreams.

Of course, this excuse has a few cousins named “lack of money” or “working for the man,” but they are all related, hence the cousin reference.

So, how are these excuses related?  I like to think of them as states of mind and in this case the state of lack.  The funny thing is thoughts are free, and why we choose lack over abundance, I don’t know.  Actually, I do have my suspicions, I think it’s just bad habit or being unaware or disconnected.  It has been said the mind is an idiot so……

I am a huge fan of the “Jedi Mind Trick” (a slight of mind to create a desired result by way of counter intuity) and guess what you probably just partook in one of the largest examples of a “JMT” ever…….Daylight Saving Time.

Yeah, you heard it DST the biggest “Jedi Mind Trick” known to man. Lets all move our clocks forwards and backwards.  If we have all already agreed to set our watches to the same time, why do we need to actually all agree to move the time.  Couldn’t we just change our schedules?  Exactly, our minds our idiots. Instead of making new commitments we actually collectively change the time.

So here is the deal! Since you are all pretty willing to play along with this silly thing called Daylight Savings Time, I bet you trust me to play along with where I am headed.

What is something on your dream list you have been just itching to do?

  • Rewrite your resume
  • Take a pottery class
  • Write a book
  • Teach a class
  • Start a new business
  • Insert your dream here_________________________?

What have you done to move towards this list?

Remember where we started? Excuses……you have just been Jedi Mind Tricked……because you no longer have that excuse.  You have just been given the gift of 1 extra hour by way of DST.  What are you going to do with it?  How are you going to change your life with the extra time you have been given.

I know you are saying…..”Brian it’s merely an hour” and there you go again and I say its “Merely” a shift.

“Hot Dog an Extra Hour!” could be your response.

Many of you know about my coaching practice “Ideal Life Coaching” which I operated from 2001-2004.  Many of you do not realize I am relaunching my coaching business.  I work with fantastic people/entrepreneurs who have rich and meaningful dreams to bring to reality.

Wow, that was quite a detour. What does coaching, Jedi Mind Tricks and Daylight Saving Time have to do with each other?

What would you do with an extra hour a week?

  • Reframe your challenges (Jedi Mind Trick)
  • Plan your dream action schedule (Daylight Saving Time)
  • Seek mentoring and guidance (Coaching)
  • Get connected with your dreams
  • Focus and priortize actions to achieve your dreams
  • Create a game plan for a balanced life spiritually, emotionally, mentally and physically.

All elements of coaching. A coach holds the space or time for you to focus on your dreams.

Over the weekend when my body woke up at the same time but the clock was different I realized coaching is a lot like Daylight Saving Time.  My work schedule had been overwhelming for the last few weeks and the extra hour allowed me to catch up with my daily meditation practice.  A very small shift of an hour allowed me to re-engage in a very powerful habit I had lost touch with.

Coaching is like having DST on a regular basis. A way to reconnect and refocus on your ultimate vision for yourself but more regularly than annually :)

If having an extra hour to focus on your dreams resonates with you, I have a fantastic offer.
