Running Transformation #3

3.  Expands your capacity to do more – time management at its best!  I may have touched on this one before and want to expand it to a deeper level.  It has been brought to my attention many, many times from many “successful” entrepreneurs/coaches/leaders that time and energy management are key to one’s amount, or levels, of success in life.  I don’t know what your definition of success is, however, I know for me I have found “success” is credited mostly because of my running discipline and training over the years.  I have found my capacity to experience more fun, joy and balance in life has everything to do with the fact that I am a runner.  Success to me is joy, fun and balance in my mind/body and Spirit. 
My time management skills were honed over time due to the fact that I wanted to get that daily run or exercise routine in AND create financial success in my business arena AND go to my church/volunteer groups AND have fun with friends/family (basically – have a life) AND travel the world (where I could run more too!).  Let’s face it, if you have competed in a marathon or an Ironman Triathlon event AND still have all the other revolving circles in your life going at a decent pace, you are required to know the meaning of time management.  One gets to learn how to fit in that 5 mile run before work or over lunch hour or that bike ride or swim in between appointments. 
Because of this, I am also very much an early to bed, early to rise person.  I can always manage to “create” the time to be, do and have all the stuff I want to have.  There are two 5 o’clocks in the day if one chooses to find that first one (oh so early and yet oh so still/calm/peaceful!).  A lot can be accomplished before 7 or 8 a.m.  I remember rising at 3:30 a.m. one morning while living in Phoenix, Arizona, to log a 20-miler before getting on a plane at 9 a.m. for a trip to Hong Kong.  Now, how is that for creating a plan of action with seemingly limited time and space??
If it looks like there is not enough hours in the day – you still can always manage to create that extra little time slot.  Being a runner expands your capacity to be, do and have an amazing life.
What can you do today to expand yourself?
