It’s no wonder that people are always saying ‘there’s not enough time’, especially after reading this list. I love Lifehack and they have captured their top 15 reasons why you think you can’t rest and relax.
My top 3 of their top 15 are:
- You don’t plan your day
- You check your smart phone every three minutes and
- You don’t commit to scheduling meetings and appointment
My theory is this: if we continue to do what we have always done we will continue to get the same results. So, consider choosing one thing that you’ll change today (ok, this weekend) and be clear as to why your changing it. Create a strategic plan (that is practical for you) as to how and what you’ll do in the future to support your efforts.
At the end of the day you’ll probably succeed for a short while and then you’ll need to recalibrate your efforts – this is an expected outcome of new processes. You will have that benchmark of success to refer back to and move forward from and that is good!! Remember to acknowledge yourself for what you have done well and then move forward.
If you need support call someone – us, an accountability partner or a coach.
Think about the coming months and how you really want to work and live and then think about how you can begin to make that happen.
