Are there goals that you’ve set and haven’t been able to achieve? Is there just not enough time in each day? Are you feeling stressed out about it?
If this is the case, take a moment to stop and think: are there any time wasters in your life that you could reduce or get rid of? You know what I’m talking about…you may spend long hours in front of the television, getting lost on Facebook and other social media sites, or wading through a long list of blog posts on your feed reader.
And then the day ends and you realize you didn’t do half of what you wanted to accomplish. Or maybe you never got started. If only there were more hours in a day!
But there can be.
Take a moment to sit down with pen and paper and think about this: how much time do you spend each day doing each of the following? Write down your answer for each.
Browsing updates on Facebook and other social media sites
Reading a never ending stream of blog posts
Talking on the phone
Playing games on the Playstation, Wii, or computer
Reading books that don’t contribute to your personal or professional growth
Let me be clear that there’s nothing wrong with any of these activities. They’re all great ways to relax and clear our mind after a long day of work. But if you’re feeling overwhelmed and under accomplished in the goals department, you may want to rethink how to spend your leisure time from now on.
