Do You Have Time?

Of course you do.

You just think you don’t.

Everyone struggles with fitting into their days all they have to do. The key is to make sure that you actually are doing the things you need to do and leaving some time for the things you want to do.

Realize that every choice you make affects your use of time. Productivity is not about getting more done, it’s about getting the right things done.

Do you need to watch television? Only you can decide that. But while you’re watching TV, can you fold laundry? Or, while you listen to a podcast, can you clean the kitchen? While you’re on hold with the doctor’s office, can you file loose paper?

Maybe the most difficult part is being realistic. You only get 24 hours each day and some of it you already commit to sleeping, eating, bathing and commuting. Be honest when you set your expectations for how much you can achieve in any given day.

Without cramming in more activities, figure out how you can best use the time you have. Need help? I’m a Skype session away!
