Do you constantly feel guilty about unfinished tasks at the end of the day? Do you keep finding yourself wanting to improve how you manage your time?

Your to-do list is not a fixed and immovable bucket. It’s a river of opportunities that you have a choice and control over. How would you choose what things to fish out of this river wisely?

In this quick dip episode, we discuss shifting our mindset about our to-do list from a bucket to a river. We only have a limited amount of time in the world. Instead of trying to do the impossible of managing our time, we need to start learning how to manage the opportunities we take. We have the power to choose what we take out of that river. So think differently about what you want to pull out, and choose wisely.

If you want to know how to think differently about your to-do list, stay tuned to this episode.

Here are three reasons why you should listen to the full episode:

  1. Understand why it’s impossible to manage time.
  2. Learn why you should think differently about your bucket list.
  3. Start applying the Four F’s Method in your life.
