We all have the same amount of minutes every day… 1440 to be exact! What we don’t make good use of today cannot be carried forward to another day… we lose that time forever.
Everyday, someone builds something to make life easier, discovers life-changing medicines, helps a fellow human being through a time of difficulty whilst someone else watches hours of mindless TV…
What about you? What are you doing to maximise the return on your 1440?
It is so easy to get caught up in the day to day routine and put all the things that you’d ‘love to do’ on the back burner. It’s also easy to know you could be taking giant steps in your life be it in your career, business or home life but instead procrastinate because there is ‘always tomorrow’.
In reality, the only time you have is now, this minute, this moment. And it is time to get into the driver’s seat of your life and press forward, acknowledging that every minute of every day counts.
Using your time wisely is your responsibility. There is nothing to be gained from blaming work, friends and family. You shape your day and you get to choose whether you want to live it passionately…
Top Tips To Maximise Your 1440
- Time management doesn’t exist! It is up to you to utilise your 1440, deciding where you spend it and on what.
- Remember Pareto Principle, 80/20 rule? For example, 80% of your business comes from 20% of your clients… make your time count!
- When you are wowed by what someone else does in a day remember… you could do it too!
- Prioritise your important goal-driven tasks over your urgent quick fix tasks. The goal driven ones will reap the rewards. See the Eisenhower’s Framework
- When your 1440 today is up, that’s it… you can’t claim them back so make them work for you on arrival
Don’t be afraid to say no when it makes sense to. People may be disappointed but you know the value of your time and where it is best spent…

A catalyst for change, Yvonne Bignall is a breath of fresh air in the extraordinary way she helps women 50+ to reconnect with life & their innate power through radical self-care, guilt-free!
She supports, encourages, and inspires women to prioritise their health, one bitesize action at a time. Her work is challenging as it navigates through difficult conversations, listening & observing how women’s health issues have been:
❊ Under-resourced &
❊ Swept under the carpet
She helps women to recognise & unpack old scripts that still (sadly enough) tell them that their value derives from their level of caregiving of others, their output. The truth is it is the input, the ability to resource self, which provides women with the energy required to realise their true potential.
Along with her team, she explores the thoughts, behaviour & habits, often born out of guilt, gender expectations, and reinforced narratives, with curiosity (not judgment), discarding the unhelpful, whilst reclaiming innate power through the creation of new patterns, restoring a sense of self, outside of societal expectations. In her opinion, this allows women to:
✔ Develop an elevated level of self-awareness
✔ Build / rebuild their confidence & self-belief
✔ Value all of who they are and invest time in who they want to be at their best
A self-care warrior, an encourager & inspirer, Yvonne is today an award-winning Women’s Health Advocate, Published Author, and an International Presenter. She is also a Radio Show Host and a Podcaster.
Yvonne is focused on building a community of women, www.PermissionToThrive.online, who are ready to reclaim their right to self-care, guilt-free, and who prioritise their health without apology, role-modeling behaviour & habits that inform generations to come of their true value.
She also advocates for self-care over burnout in the workplace, delivering practical webinars in the corporate space. In her own words, “It is time for employees to prioritise their wellbeing. How will they deliver their best work without it?”
One of her favourite quotes comes from Eleanor Brown, ‘Rest and self-care are so important. When you take time to replenish your spirit, it allows you to serve others from the overflow. You cannot serve from an empty vessel’
