Seems like everyone is looking for more time, in their business, with their family or to relax and recharge. So is it possible to get time to work for you? Of course! As simple as 1, 2, 3 !
1 – Know what is vital and what is just keeping you busy
This is the biggest time stealer for all of us, we can spend so much time doing things that keep us busy but aren’t vital to the success of out business or for our family and friends. So how do I tell the difference? Ask yourself is it vital to _____ that I get this done today?
If the answer isn’t yes, then this is not your priority today. This works for both business and family, this doesn’t have to just work for business as there are many family events that are vital to the ones we love most.
2 – Schedule, schedule, schedule
Things will always be popping up and if we address everything as it pops up we will always be chasing our tail.
Scheduling is the key! This is the way we always ensure the vital stuff gets done and we stay on track to have time for all areas of out life.
So take a look at your schedule, do you have health/ exercise, learning, family time, work and play in your schedule?
It may seem like a lot but once you start scheduling and sticking to it, it is amazing how much time opens up.
3 – Learn to say No
Do you ever find yourself saying yes and then wondering how you will even fit it in? The closer to the event you have to either fess up and say you can’t make it or make up and excuse?
Doing this over and over again not only causes us stress but affects our confidence as we feel that in some way we should be able to do it all if only we were better. But this is actually a big fat lie. No one can do everything for everyone and this is why we need to learn to say NO and we don’t have to be rude, we simply need to review No 1 what is Vital and our Schedule and be honest and say we can not make it. People prefer this to cancelling last minute and you will feel so much better not letting people down or over committing.
