Life can’t be lived in the future. Instead of running ahead of your life, slow down and get back in step.

It’s what you do with your time that frees up more time and draws life into your world.

Are you doing what you’re doing right now better than you have ever done it? Be truthful. Or is it just “as good as” or “good enough”? The “good enough” stuff we do is not good enough for time warrior.

Do you want to succeed at something? Good work right now will help you do that. Most people want to start by improving how they “market” their services. Maybe a new website, or a better network of affiliates. But most of the time that’s not where the answer lies.

The answer is in the work itself.

Let’s slow down, let’s write a better book, preach a better sermon or build a better mousetrap, because that’s where the magic is. That’s wher your secret leverage lies.

But how do you master mastery by slowing down?

How do you master time thay way? Don’t you fall behind?

No, because slowing down gets you in harmony.

You’re not out of tune any longer.

Without slowing doen, you get way out ahead of life itself. I’m only asking you to slow down to the speed of life. You want to dance with life, not race out ahead of life.

Let’s Slow down

People who race out ahead of life are falling down on the dance floor. They are living in their own future, which is where fear lives. But when you slow down to master this present moment, life gets fearless.

For example, I was coaching a man I will call Ben. Ben was excited because a large company had hired him to come in to give them a 60-mintue talk. Ben couldn’t wait. The talk was on his calendar for a month from now and he knew exactly what he was going to present. It was a talk he had given many times before and he knew it would be a big hit.

So now that it was all set and on his calendar, Ben was onto other things. Ben was spending his days racing around mentally and physically trying to get other new business. He was answering every call, checking email thirty times a day and living in a whirlwind of chaos. Ben was always in his own future, so Ben was always anxiety ridden [as all anxiety is about the future].

My job as Ben’s coach was simply to slow him down.

Down to the speed of life itself. Because life was on Ben’s side; he just couldn’t see it. He saw life as a giant opponent. Something that needed to be won over.

Once Ben relaxed and let himself take some deep breaths, I asked him to go back to the client who had hired him for a talk.

“What if someone passed a law,” I said to Ben, “that said you could only have one client for a rest of your life and you would have to make all your income from this one client, and this your client, Ben. What would you do?”

Ben was silent. I could see he was thinking.

I asked Ben to spend the rest of our coaching session thinking about this one client. To slow everything down, as if this client were the only thing that existed in his world.

I was teaching Ben to go non-linear… to be a time warrior. The time warrior slows time to a standstill. Now there is no time. Ultimate victory. There is only timeless, eternal presence. Or “now.”

Ben and I began to list the many other ways he would love to serve that company. He wrote a list of people in the company he wanted to go visit prior to his talk, to gather research on the many problems and challenges Ben could help them with. Two weeks later Ben had converted a $3,000 one-time speaking contract into a full year’s program with more than twenty times that income.

Just by slowing down and applying laser-like focus. That’s the only difference between the average man and the warrior. The warrior has focus.

Remember that such focus cannot be frantic. It has to be relaxed and slowed down.

Notice when you’re out on a boat and someone points out something on the shoreline for you look at. If you strain your eyes, trying to force your focus, you won’t see it. Only when you relax and let the image come to you do you now see it clearly.

Most people think they are not inspired because their project is not inherently inspiring. Therefore they procrastinate. Or they just work on it sporadically. They don’t realize that if they would slow down and do this project one slow step at a time – in a loving and deeply anergetic way – inspiration might just appear. After the work starts!

Now is the key

The time warrior steals from the future. Then she pours her stolen gold – all of it – into the present moment. Like sand out of a boot into a sand painting. She pours from the future into the present. She embraces the present and increases her capacity for living. Only then can the future truly be bright.

When I coach people who have small businesses, or who are coaches or consultants, or who raise childrenn or lead other people, I notice that their greatest opportunity for success is right in front of them in the very next conversation they are about to have.

Yet they fly past that conversation, barely tagging it like in a schoolyard game, racing to get to their “better” future.

When I recommend that they slow down it goes against their inner anxiety – the anxiety that runs their lives – as they strains so hard against their leash. The leash begins to choke them off and they start to lose oxygen. At night, they don’t sleep, they just eventually pass out.

No wonder no valid plans for the future can be made. Those plans are all fear-based [invalid] because they want a “better” world than the one that presents itself in this next conversstion, this world of infinite opportunity.
