Today we are talking about balance, and I am not talking about the scale that you used in your high school biology or chemistry class.
To be a parent one must find balance within their lives. Not only so that their child feels that they have one-on-one time with their parent, but also so that the parents themselves feel that they have some one-on-one time for themselves.
You have to be able to understand when you are the parent, the husband/wife/spouse/partner, let alone a child yourself/employee/friend etc. how to be able to do all of the things that you are asked and/or told to do. So how do you do this? It is not easy, let me tell you. It takes a lot of time, effort and pre-planning as well as some exploration of where you lose time and where your priorities lie.
In researching for today’s challenge I found a few resources that I thought I would share:
So today, I would like all of you to take a few minutes to identify where your time goes.
Use the following site to identify where your time goes – http://www.studygs.net/schedule/
If you want to be more intensive about the process you can also make a grid for yourself on a spreadsheet to see where your time goes and track this over a week. By doing this, you start to see where your patterns exist. Once you identify your patterns you are then able to make changes and get yourself more into alignment in regards to managing your overall time and beginning the cyclical process of balancing out your time.
I am interested to know where you find your time slipping away and what you have done in the past or what you plan to do to balance out your life. If you are so inclined please leave your responses in a comment below or link to a blog post if you are going to commit to joining me on this journey so that others can learn from you as well.
Good luck with day 2 and I look forward to your thoughts and comments!
