Step #4 The Hard Work of Having it All!!!
Once you evaluate where you are and where you want to be, you will realize there is time for anything that matters. It’s hard work having it all! No one is going to show up and give you everything you want. Follow these steps to get more from your 168 hours.
- Log your time
- Identify your “core competencies”
- Start with a blank slate
- Fill in your 168 hours with blocks of “core competency” time
- Ignore, minimize, or outsource everything else
- Time with Bits of Joy
- Tune up as necessary
Reading this book helped me realized I was throwing away small amounts of time throughout the week. The time log tells no lies. I’ve outsourced a few tasks at work and home, that freed up 3-4 hours a week for me. Over the next 40-60 days I’m working on freeing up (or reallocating) 10 hours for working and spending downtime with my family. Thank you Laura Vanderkam!!!!
