Work, Work, Work: Make Your Time Count

Work takes a lot of your time…

It seems there is never enough of this precious life support.

TIME IS MY FRIEND, TIME IS MY ALLY AND I HAVE ALL THE TIME I NEED FOR EVERYTHING I WANT TO DO.

family and work

I received a lot of questions, indicating just how hard it is to balance our time requests these days.

I want to respond to a friend who said she’s “too busy to attend to personal needs vs. work, work, work”

and is looking for a way to take care of herself while meeting the requirements of her workplace.

Here are a couple of suggestions for anyone who is struggling to keep work and personal life in balance.

First, don’t judge yourself about where you’re spending your time.

Wherever you are, be there 100 percent.

If you’re working, try to notice why you said yes to the work and enjoy that part of it.

Enjoy the moment.

Second, use your calendar or daytimer as a tool to give you what you want.

Mark it with work and personal time, and attend to it.

For example, I’m working on another project.

It’s very easy for me to let that time slip into something else,

and go crazy….

Feel like you are going crazy?

like answering email or returning calls or checking the newsfeed on Facebook.

Now don’t tell me you haven’t been there.

Lol!

I’m getting better at blocking out the time in advance and sticking with what I said I was going to do with it.

Lastly, prioritize your values around time.

If personal time with family is the highest priority,

mark the personal family time into your calendar first because it’s important.

Then fill in the other stuff around it.

It’s up to you now.

Please write and let me know if any of the suggestions work for you.

And let me know your ideas, too, because I need them!
