The biggest wasters of time are: worry, indecision, and repairing mistakes made because of those two distractions. Sometimes slowing down will actually speed things up. People who want to put facts into their memory more rapidly find that if they first listen to music at the metronome speed of 60, or even the ticking of a clock, their mental absorption is increased. Much of the music of the Baroque period, especially the third movements of symphonies by Handel and Haydn will be useful for this purpose, as well as enjoyable. Planning, meditating, setting priorities are all activities meant to give us better control of our time. But remember, magic is the ability to change perception at will. If you perceive a sense of stress about the time you are using, you are losing full use of that time. Do something at that moment to hook into a calmer flow of time. Many people believe the Buddhist chant of: 'Nam-myoho-renge-kyo' will make time work for them. It does have a calming effect and thus prevents mistakes.
Another tool for magical use of time is to be open to synergy and serendipity. If one project can serve two masters, let it do so. If one healing can then go on to be a lustrous pearl, allow that also. Allowing magic to enter your life is the best way to gain time to enjoy a spark of magic.
