Your time is the most important contributing factor when it comes to your career, family, wealth, and health. It is how you set your schedule for the day in which will determine how you obtain all of your goals and tackle your to-do list. But time is also built around fostering relationships and following your passion. If we have no time or squander it then we sometimes feel as if we our failing ourselves and our relationships.
The problem is in the golden age of technology and social media we can easily lose track of time. We get caught in the cyclical vortex of work emails, texts, Facebook, and Netflix. It is before long that evening run that you wanted to accomplish for the day has been thrown out the window.
In our culture the act of being busy is expected of us but what if we slowed down from the dirty dishes, the emails, and the texts in the evening. We began to make more time for the people in our lives, our health goals, or just to create an hour to follow our own passions. How would that look and feel for you? Can you envision it?
Just take a minute to evaluate your time throughout the day. Is your schedule working for you? What small change can you do to make it better?
I know from experience that bad habits do not break overnight. They take time to change and shift into something better. So what if we made one small change to our schedule for a month. How would it improve your quality of life? Your health? Your creativity? The Quality of Relationships?
As I run out of time on writing this post I challenge myself and others to take a minute to reflect on our priorities. Let’s figure out how to change our schedules from the importance of being busy or the time suck of technology to reboot our calendars and make one small change for something in our lives that truly matters.
