Y'all, I totally missed MORE Monday post last week and didn't even realize it. Memorial Day played a roll in my forgetting, but so did the fact that I have felt very busy and short on time.
But, as the saying goes, we all have the same 24 hours in a day, how we CHOOSE to use it is what matters.
And I know I have some wasted time each day--more some days than other, and some wasted time that is out of my control and a lot that I can control.
First, we have to know what why we want more time. Do you want more time with you kids or spouse, more time to do something you love, more time to relax? I believe if we don't know WHY we are doing something, it will never be a priority and trying to find more time will be meaningless.
Next, we need to really examine and identify those areas in our life where we are simply wasting time. Maybe it is your morning routine and you could simplify your getting ready time. Or, perhaps you waste time planning meals just a day at a time, resulting in several trips to the grocery store. And I KNOW most of waste too much time on social media--set a timer and end your screen time when it dings!
Others of us need to be given permission to say no. We do not need to volunteer for everything, say yes to every person that asks, even for the good things. And NO harboring guilt because you said NO allowed. Successful folks know how to say no to those things that simply do not fit and only say yes to the things they are passionate about.
So, this week let's look at finding more time for the things that we want more time for. Let's work at being efficient and seeing time as precious, too precious to waste and too special to use carelessly. Print out the FREE worksheet HERE and let me know what YOU are working on. Have a great day!
