Crunched for time? Keep reading for tips to ease the load. Over the next four weeks I will lay out strategies that will help you organize your time, freeing up valuable minutes in your day.
Set priorities—If it is not important cut it from your day. If you don’t value it stop doing it.
There are only 24 hours in a day and we all have the same amount of time. What you do with your time defines who you are and what is important to you. This week I challenge you to take five minutes and figure out what is most important to you, and write it down. What are you passionate about? Of course we all have things we must do whether we like to or not, but I’m talking about those optional commitments.
Don’t sweat the small stuff and remember that your behavior needs to line up with what you value. Once you determine your priorities begin to whittle the non-essentials from your life. Be honest with yourself. No one can do everything. Over committing causes burnout and ineffective results.
Check back next week to find out what to do now that you’ve set your priorities.
