The trick is simple – stop trying to “make it somewhere”. The things that we chase the most are the most elusive, and the things we accept as is are the most permanent.
It is easy to “get everything done”, when you are not trying to “get everything done” and just do things as they come, at the time when they come.
Stressing over things that “need doing” takes more energy, and more time than doing the things that need to get done, as such – when you stop stressing about time, time stops stressing about you, and you start miraculously doing much more than you previously thought possible.
More importantly, however, you need to ask yourself the question whether you own your own time? We have been raised in a society where, for the most part, your time does not belong to you – at first your time belongs to your parents, then it belongs to the kindergarten, then to the school, the university, and then – your employer. Almost never – you actually own your own time.
Once you realize it, you can start the process of taking ownership over your time, and your life – back. Once you do, getting things done becomes easier and less stressful. You have full power and responsibility to decide what to do with your time.
Coming back to earth, and in practical terms, my intent is to just do things as they come. Then I am always on-time.
