What do you make time for?
I know, I had to sit and think about that one for a while too. It was a few weeks ago and one of those days where I was ready to throw my hands in the air and just stop, because it felt as though twenty-four hours really weren’t enough. In fact, I think I did end up throwing in the towel that day. Afterwards though, I had a long think. I asked myself why the hours weren’t enough, where could I make adjustments to get more done in a more efficient way, and the all-important — what could I cut?
We do this all the time, resort to pulling hair out because we simply don’t know how to balance it all. Life can be stressful enough as it is, without us having regular not-enough-time induced freak outs. So, how do we stop them? How do we utilise the time we have without losing ourselves – and our minds – in the process?
Now I’m not one for scheduling – it just doesn’t work for me – however, for some this is the ticket. For me, I’ve been trying out focusing on no more than four things each day and throwing my full energy into those things. It’s a work in progress and I’m still deciding if it works. Trial and error is a part of this process and that’s really okay. Thing is, no one can tell us how to make our time work for us and we have to figure it out for ourselves. Imagine though, how great the benefits, when we finally reach a solution. Go forth and prosper my little time busters :).
