Do you find that you never have time to do the things that you want to do?  Do you feel that there is not any time for you have fun?  We can learn a lot from movies like Office Space.  Here are some helpful tips and advice to create time for the things you love.   

You have 24 hours in a day, and you are busy for at least 2/3rd's of the day.  That leaves you with at least 5 hours to do something on a five work day week.  Take a walk in the park, attend a political rally, sit in your local cafe to read your assignments or plan your agenda.  Always find the time to do the things that you love.  If you do not do the things that you love, you will not enjoy life as much as others.  Successful people always have the time for coffee breaks and attend political rallies.   

Though there is no single successful method to create time, there are strategies one can take.  There is no one strategy that is successful for everyone.  Different people have different needs.  But everyone needs the time to have fun.  You create your own work.  Remember, aside from your work and sleeping, you are not required to do anything.  For some, there are religious observations to have time for, but other than that, you choose to do the things you do. 

There is no law that makes you do certain things.  You choose your own agenda.  Even if someone asks you to do something, you are not obligated to do it.  You have the power of rejection.   Office Space gives us a great example of that.  Sure, you may not have achieved much, but you are more relaxed and more healthy. 

The first step to creating time is finding the time to do the things you love.  Always have time for the things you love.  This is very important to you being efficient in your work.  You must enjoy your work and everyone needs a time to relax and enjoy life.  Whether it's coffee time at a local Starbucks or playing pool with your friends or even playing golf, you can always find the time.  You should always have time for your family.  Even if you have things to do like home work or analyzing data, you can take your work with you to your local Starbucks or coffee shop.  A good cup of coffee in the evening at a cafe will help you relax and get work done.  I personally do it while going to a local Starbucks and having coffee.  It gives me time to reflect on the day while working on my work.     

Have several people to meet in one day?  Meet five different people at one location.  Starbucks is among many places to sit and meet for business or personal reasons.  Also, you can meet them for dinner rather than eat alone.  One time, I had several different people to meet in one day.  I found a strategy to achieve that by meeting different people for different reasons at one location.   Sometimes you have to delay your meetings and sometimes you have to go out of your way to satisfy a client or a potential partner.   

You also have to be reasonable to yourself.  Do not set too many meetings for a day or meetings that you have an uncertainty in attending.  Remember, other people's schedule depends on you.  You must also reasonably expect someone to be late.  Or else, you will be disappointed in others and it will only cause you more unhappiness.  Anyone can create time for those people that they love.  You do not have to attend any meeting, you choose to attend those meetings at your power.  Even if they are company related meetings, you choose to show up to work.   

Office Space may have been just a movie, but it had a message.  The message that it sent was that you choose to work and you choose to live the life you live.  Office Space taught us that You should not have to feel guilt for meeting other people's expectations, because it is your own happiness that matters.  Your time with your family, your loved one, or your personal time.  It will help you be more aware throughout the day and much happier.  More happiness equals more energy.  Happiness is a timeless gift.
