How to Reframe and Reclaim Your Time | Episode 38 of the Professional Creative with Bonnie Christine

Have you ever caught yourself saying "I don't have time" when it comes to things that are important to you? In this episode, you’ll learn how to take control of your schedule and achieve your goals with a simple but powerful mindset shift.

I’m sharing my personal experience of reframing my time and how changing your language can help you prioritize your tasks and activities, increase productivity, and unlock your full potential as a creative entrepreneur. Discover practical tips and techniques to better manage your limited hours and create space for the things that truly matter to you most. 

I want you to feel like you can reclaim control over your time
and unlock your full potential as a creative entrepreneur.

Discussed in this episode:

  • By changing the language we use around time and reframing the way we think about it, we can reclaim control over our schedules and prioritize more effectively. Instead of saying "I don't have time," try saying "that's not important enough for me to make time for." This empowers you to make conscious decisions about how you use your time.
  • Time blocking is a powerful time management technique that involves dedicating a block of time to a single task without any distractions. This helps you focus and make progress on your goals.
  • As creative entrepreneurs, we face unique challenges in managing our time and balancing personal and professional demands. By adopting a more empowering perspective on time, we can better utilize our limited hours and create space for what matters most.
  • Schedule a “super-thinking session” to take some time to identify your biggest personal and professional goals, prioritize your tasks and activities, and dedicate small amounts of time to activities that are important to you. By doing this, you can make progress towards your goals and feel more in control of your schedule.


Review of the week:


Bonnie is a beacon of light!

I’m enrolled in Bonnie Christine’s Immersion course (4th-year alums) on my journey to become a licensed surface pattern designer. Bonnie is not only incredibly successful in this realm but is the most gracious mentor and teacher. Her willingness to lift others to reach their goals is truly selfless and a rare find.

I found myself encouraged and full of hope as I listened to Bonnie tell of her real life struggles and successes. She has indeed paved the way as she leads us to the light at the end of the tunnel, through the journey to our biggest goals, by being by our side every step of the way.

This podcast is the perfect accompaniment to her course, as well as an inspiration to anyone pursuing their journey to a life goal.
