Every night I sit down (usually when it’s quiet but tonight I have two soloists singing) and map out tomorrow, hour by hour. It’s one of the routines I started in 2019. There is never enough time in the day and I always heard “you make time for things you want”, so by planning out my next day hourly, I find time. Time to put an hour a week towards something I complain I never have time for. It’s been so eye opening because I have figured all the things I’ve postponed in the last ten years that never got done because of the excuse “i don’t have time”. Now they are getting done at a much faster speed and didn’t take as long as I had pictured in my head. I used to come home frustrated, feeling self defeated, and like I didn’t accomplish things I wanted to...not anymore. Sure there are days I don’t accomplish it all or I veer off the schedule a little but overall it’s created more consistency and completion of projects. I don’t watch as much TV as I used to simply because I being intentional with my time and what it is bringing back to me. It’s made me a better mom, a better boss, a better wife, better at taking care of me and better at my career.
And yes that’s my pen pouch full of colorful pens to spice up my paper life! If you think about it those three ladies wanted to get the most of life...so do I!
