What is your definition of time freedom?
A power or right
Here’s what I’ve picked up…¹
I began with 1st things 1st, what’s freedom? Oxford says it’s the power or right to act, speak or think as one wants. The state of not being imprisoned or enslaved.
Webster said freedom is the quality of the state of being free such as the absence of necessity, coercion or constraint and choice of action, liberation from slavery. Ok, so I’m starting to get a flavor of what freedom means. The power or right to act, speak or think. The choice to live your life doing what you want, live where you want, eat by choice, and learn what your heart desires.
A measured period
The other part of this question was time. What’s my definition of time freedom? Well first off what’s my definition of tim?
So, I went to Mrs. Google – it says time can be defined as an ongoing and continuous sequence of events that occur in succession from the past to the present into the future. It’s the measured period between actions or a process or condition that exists or continues.
Is there enough?
The next thing that comes to my mind is why is time important.
So I asked Google that as well…’ We need time to work, to eat, to sleep, and to accomplish all the daily chores of living.’
Now, this is the most important part for me where it goes on…’We also need time to know and understand our mates, our children, and our friends.’
I’ve found that most of our relationships require more time than we have and it can be difficult to avoid the feeling that we may never have enough time to do all we want to do.
The most precious and powerful
Finally, why is time precious? So I googled this too!
Time is the most precious and powerful of things in life – even more so than money. Because once time goes, it goes forever.
It doesn’t come back.
It doesn’t come back to anyone. and it only runs in a forward direction and never looks back. We can lose our money and get it back but we aren’t able to get time back.
What, when, where?
So what’s my summarised definition of time freedom?
Freedom for me is to be able to do what I want when I want, where I want. And the most important part of the time, as I understand it, is that it goes from the past, the present to the future.
This has motivated me to seek a way of working that’s allowed me to not always be needing to be there to earn the money that we earn. This, in turn, allows me more time to hang out with family, and friends, travel and do the things I want.
Basically, having the freedom to do what I want to do with my day. Not always needing to go and clock into work after a commute.
Can you relate? – to have more freedom and choices around what you do, rather than being locked in one location or being stuck doing the same thing over and over because you’re needing the money to pay for the things that you need in life.
There is a way of working that allows more to be achieved essentially in a set amount of time and then that continues to pay over time into the future so that you can then use that time as you go on through your life to do other things that you wouldn’t be able to to do any other way. If you’d like to find out more, just reach out and set up a call with me and we can have a quick chat. I’ll just take you through the concepts and see if it’s something that would be appropriate for you.
Those are my thoughts.
