Like most of you, I live a busy life. I don't get to relax as much as I would like. Yet I still don't get everything accomplished. This doesn't make sense. It should be an either-or. Either I didn't get to accomplish everything but I got to relax. Or, I didn't get to relax but it was worth it since I got everything accomplished.
I always thought if I made a list I would never be able to accomplish everything and wouldn't have time to rest. These time management gurus are also advocates of putting RELAX on the to do list. This way you can relax and feel accomplished at the same time! Brilliant!
I have learned that if I don't make a list and don't schedule my time wisely, I don't feel accomplished and I don't feel rested. Bad combination. This is especially true on weekends, random days off, and snow days. (You educators know what I'm talking about!)
If you fail to plan, you plan to fail. What is scheduled gets done.
Don't waste time. Make a schedule and/or list and SAVE THE DAY!
Challenge: Make a list of things you need to do for this week and don't forget to put relax or some form of recreation. Reward yourself when you complete everything!
