I’m quite certain there are still only 24 hours in a day, even though some days you wonder where the time went and some days you feel amazed at how much you got done during that time. The reality of our life
today, is we continuously need to #Balance our time to feel complete, to feel effective and to feel rested.
How does one accomplish this? What strategies do you have to remain on task, to not allow others to hijack your time and for you to feel good about the day when the lights go out?
As a very routine person, I believe you can find some solace in the consistency of a normal day and regular system. The time you wake, the career path you pursue, the meals you eat, the exercise you take part in and those you add value
to in your day are all part of your routine. The challenge is inevitably how we fit everything else in.
It’s easy to say we simply need to prioritize. The truth is we need to determine what matters most in the context of our ongoing life. We balance what matters most with our underlying “needs” for excessive attention to detail, cleanliness
and those things that take lots of our time but really could be left for another day.
I’m not advocating “giving up” on being neat or put together but taking a closer look at what we spend our time on. I am as guilty as any for wanting a clean kitchen before I sit down to eat, an organized house before I leave on a trip
and all things in place before I feel complete. It’s equally my challenge to let go in some places to find a stronger #Balance for what matters most in life.
I am working on a way to create two extra hours in each day and once I perfect the machine, I will certainly take requests for those who need a few.
Until that time….let’s all find our #Balance.
