7 Super Tips
to Save Time

“The trouble is you think you have time.”
- Buddha

We all have aspirations, ideals or goals we want to achieve, but somehow we never get around to achieving them because we either postpone doing them or simply let go. We act as if we had infinite time.

Though deep down we know every minute is a precious moment, we tend to ignore this steady march and waste our time in mindless pursuits.
We consciously or unconsciously choose to ignore tasks that we should be working on right now, usually in favor of doing something that promises immediate gratification.

Losing Time,
Losing You

"We must use time as a tool, not as a couch."
- John F. Kennedy

Our value of ourselves is intimately connected with the value we place on the time allotted to us. When we lose time, we are also losing a bit of ourselves; losing the opportunity to live out our dream lives, losing the chance to experience magic so abundantly strewn in countless moments, losing the possibility of actualizing our potential, and be who we are truly meant to be.
So how do we ensure we are not losing ourselves?

Time is limited and in spite of the conveniences of modern life, we all experience a paucity of time. Here Azim talks about how we can expand the time we have by adding value to it. He starts by giving the example of Sufis, who believe that life is measured by the number of breaths we take. He explains that this does not imply that we should stop breathing, but rather create moments in our daily lives that literally take our breath away. He goes on to give easy tips on creating this magic in our lives.

"I struggle to do all that needs to be done in a full day.  Between work, raising a family, taking children to all their activities and caring for aging parents, I barely get enough sleep.  How do I find time for balanced living?"


Feeling overwhelmed with life is a common refrain of modern living. In spite of all technological advancements and conveniences, we are finding less and less time to truly experience life. The key here is not in moving faster but slowing down. I suggest you do three things:
  1. Prioritize your tasks – Understand that doing less is doing more. Making fewer commitments but more important ones aligned with your purpose is better than doing many insignificant things. Doing too much causes your priorities to become jumbled, leading to confusion and frustration. Hence prioritize your three important tasks in each life area and remember to accomplish whatever you choose with complete awareness and attention. Do not move on to the next unless you have completed the previous task. The quality that you bring to those few tasks will...
