Finding the time

Updated: Aug 7, 2022

“Everything seems to take twice as long to do these days,” is a comment I’ve heard a lot during the pandemic. And getting back to “normal” doesn’t seem like something that is going to happen any time soon. Nonetheless, we all have to get back to our lives.

What if we could get back to things not taking twice as long? You’ve heard the term “saving time”? What if you could find time you didn’t know you had in the same amount of hours in your day?

From Ken Davenport of Theater Makers Studio in New York City - “How To Make More Time”- a webinar for people who are in the “passion industry” – artists working at what they love to do.

Ken offers a list of how you can mine your time to find another hour in your day (that extrapolates to 15 extra days a year – another two weeks of time).


1. Establish an early morning routine starting with getting up 15 minutes earlier than you usually do. Stick to the routine including 5 minute journaling and 10 minutes of meditation.

2. Think like a 10 year old – establish a bedtime and stick to it.

3. Turn your phone off.

4. Eliminate one thing from your life that is taking up time and lacks potential for huge rewards (the operative word here is “huge”).

4. Control your clock. Learn to say, “No.”

5. Get help with things that are hard (Upwork, Freelancer, Taskrabbit are apps that help with almost anything).

6. Send out the laundry. Do you really want to use your time doing laundry?

7. Prepare yourself to do more in less time: eat nutritious food, eliminate sugar,

8. Exercise (tunes the mind), rest and restore (not just sleep)- “Never go to sleep without a request to your subconscious.” – Thomas Edison

9. 10 minutes a day of meditation can save you an hour a day: (Headspace and Calm are good apps)

10. ROTI – return on time Investment. Evaluate your projects and eliminate anything that doesn’t have the highest potential- including people.

According to Broadway Producer, Ken Davenport, making these changes in your schedule and habits can double your time in a day.
