In this episode of “Ask Katrina” we are answering one of the most common questions we get here at Legend Leaders: “Katrina, do I just feel like I don’t have free time, or do I really not have free time?” It’s a question of time freedom vs. mental freedom.
If you have been asking yourself this question, let me take two seconds to applaud you.
This is a truly insightful question that when answered, will help you unlock the personal freedom you want in your life. In other words, this question is the start of good things for you.
So good job!
Is it an Issue of Time Freedom?
How do you know if it really is a lack of time in your day?
Take a moment to look at how you are actually spending your time. Are you constantly on the phone, working emails, checking texts, jumping on calls, or answering calls?
If the bulk of your time is actually spent working, then I would say that yes, you do have a time problem.
You are spending the majority of your time focused on working and developing your career.
Now, there is nothing necessarily wrong with that, unless that’s simply not how you want to be spending your time.
If that’s the case, then you do have a problem to solve for.
Is it an Issue of Mental Freedom?
If you’re unsure of what mental freedom is, it’s essentially when your brain is consumed by actions and ideas other than where you are in the moment.
For example, if you are at your daughter’s volleyball game and yet your brain is focused on a work call for next week, a new project coming up, and if you might need to terminate an underperforming employee, then you have an issue with mental freedom.
You have the time, but instead of living in the moment, you are living in your head.
To determine if this is your issue, ask yourself how often you get distracted or stop paying attention to the events around you in a week’s time.
If you’re physically with family but not mentally there, that’s your clue.
How Do You Achieve Freedom?
The interesting fact in this entire discussion is that I am super familiar with both time freedom and mental freedom because this is exactly what we help corporate executive women solve in their lives.
We have the Time Freedom Program that helps you get 10 hours a week back into your personal schedule so you can start doing the things you want to do.
We also have the Irreplaceable Asset Program that helps you eliminate the worry, fear, and guesswork regarding how you create career success and security. Inherently we worry about our careers because we don’t have a clear vision of what, when, and how to do what needs to be done. We solve that in this program.
So there you go!
Take a look at your past week and determine if you have a lack of time freedom or mental freedom. If you’re ready to solve one or both of those, we can help.
