Time’s been on my mind this week, and not just because I’m off to England for some family fun, and trying to pull a few ends together before I go.
No, I was also struck by this wise advice (my apologies to the originator, but I can’t remember where I saw it):
Time isn’t something you find, it’s something you make.
How many of us say things like “if I can find the time” or “when I find time”? The reality is, we don’t just find spare hours lying around, or gift-wrapped and sitting on our front doorstep. If we truly want do something, we must make the effort to make the time.
As I’ve pondered that insight, I looked back at some of my previous posts about time. Here are the most popular ones in case you’d like to revisit them too:
- What I learned from my 3-month Facebook vacation.
- Email is someone else’s opinion of how you should spend your time.
- Time management secrets of serene women (article for House of Fifty magazine).
- Why our lives need white space.
- Serenity tip: schedule your leisure time.
This year I’ve been using a custom-made Agendio planner to schedule my time (contains affiliate links). It’s enabled me to put action items on the same page as my appointments, which has made me significantly more realistic about how much I can get done. This planner is a bit of an investment but I love mine.
