Time is one of our most valuable resources. In fact, it is always nonrefundable. Often our to-do list seems to have much more on it than we can get done in a day. One of the ways we can ensure we are making the best use of our time is to ensure we are spending it on the things that matter to us most.
For example, do you feel you have enough time in your life for family and friends? Is your job getting the best version of you so you can give the most value to the team? Do you have enough time left in the day to look after your own personal needs? Have you built time in your life for relaxation and fun? All of these things are important. Everyone’s life is different. The amount of time that is right for you depends on your personal circumstances. Balance and spending time doing what is most important to us is key to a joy-filled life.
Make note of areas where you would like to have more time. For the next few days, take note of where you are actually spending your time. Then consider making some changes more in alignment with your priorities. Even small shifts can make a big difference in one’s life.
To get you started consider these questions: Are you aware of how much time you are spending on social media? When you are watching TV, are you feeling energized or drained? What value are you getting from it? Are you making time for the people and things that you love? Are you making enough time for yourself?
