I am constantly asked how I run two businesses, have a great (sexy) marriage, parent my 7 year old, fit in yoga, work outs and still smile (most of the time). Here is the question & my very simple, quick & dirty, but true answer! Of course I created an entire program around this called Manifesto & Mapping, you can see the videos on my Youtube channel, we get serious about strategy in that program, but… maybe this answer will spark a little “introspection on prioritization” for you!
How do you utilize your time to be most efficient and to match your priorities?
10% Agenda & 90% integrity to that agenda. I own my calendar & manage it. I am extremely disciplined in my boundaries around my time. I am honest about what I can take on & say “no” to what does not fit, or feel right. There is freedom in my time management, lots of space for family & creativity. My work & life blend together, so my greatest gift I can give to anything I am doing is my “presence”. I commit to what I am working or playing on in the “present moment”! I set intentions, put them in my agenda and smack my integrity right on top of it. Life is going to happen. I always have to create room to flex and change, but that’s the beauty of honestly approaching your time from a mindset of “these are my 24 hours, what sort of awesome is going to exist in them, even if it looks like messy work?”
OH.. and I eat clean nutritious food, with occasional glasses of a fabulous elixir called wine..
Now, I would love to hear how you manage all that you do. Please leave your comments below and let’s share this post to create some dynamic ideas for our sisters & brothers that are currently struggling with the “busy” label!
