LIFE IS MADE OF THREE THINGS
Life is made of three things – Time, Energy and Resources. And we spend them on five facets of life. Understanding that is the very basis for the Alchemy for Life™ system of managing those basic building blocks of everything you do in your life. Work/life balance, stress-free productivity and reaching life (and work) goals all rely on this.
We all get the same amount, and everyone tries really hard to spend it on what they want to do. Knowing where your times goes allows you to get more control of it, and have much more work/life balance. Time allows you to add things to your schedule.
Why time management is important
Time management is important because if your time is not managed it means that you are not in control of it. If you’re not in control of your time then someone or something else will be. As you can imagine time management is important in business, in the workplace, for students, for parents, and for entrepreneurs. Time management can be difficult for students as they try to balance their schedules and other demands.
When people think of time management they often think of projects but time management is a part of every day life as well. Managing your time can help you reduce stress in work, in play, in business, in home, in maintaining a work-life balance and even in relationships. They all require an awareness of time management. When people ask how time management can be improved, or how time management helps to reduce stress they want to know how time management is useful?
Using a system to map out time can improve time management when studying. Knowing how much time you have as well as what is drawing upon it can affect everything being overwhelmed, working from home, and even preparing for exams.
It takes energy to be a good listener, to work out, to go to work, to be a fun partner, a good mom or dad, and to get your chores done. Managing your energy allows you to start new projects, be a better partner and be happier.
Why exercise is important
Having enough energy is tied to exercise for many. We are learning why exercise is good for your mental health, why exercise helps depression, and even why why exercise is good for the brain. But you can’t exercise if you don’t have the energy for it. And the energy can come from the exercise itself – a catch-22 for many. Time management can get you the time needed to make yourself happier through exercise, but if you don’t have the energy for it you’re not going to do it.
Your stuff, your money, the favors you can call upon. Your exotic vacation takes resources, so does paying for piano lessons for your daughter. The primary reason most people work is the accumulation of resources. Do you know where all your resources are going?

Speaking on goals, systems, status
Mark Bradford speaks on success, goals and his unique system for seeing your life as a whole, work/life balance, time, energy and resources. He teaches associations and businesses about the F.A.U.L.T. method of anchoring tasks to get them done. Stress-free productivity is a common topic as well. In additon, he speaks to groups about the important part status plays in all relationships. Excerpts are are taken from his book, Alchemy for Life.
What goals to set?
People ask, “what goals should I set?” but questions like that and “what goals should I set for work?” are really answered by you. The point of the coach is not to set the goals for you, but to allow you to see clearly what you want.
Why goals fail
Goals fail more often than not, not because the person isn’t capable of reaching them, but because they didn’t make room in their time, energy or resources for them. Goals should be specific but not immovable because the rpocess of reaching them is rather fluid.
Order or Chaos?
Are you order or chaos? Which one best fits your life? Are you a creative? Do you like logic? Find out the strengths of both.

Your comfort zone
Is your comfort zone what you really think it is? Is moving out of it all that important, and are the people telling us that actually happily living in theirs?
