My time is precious. I plan my days. I consider my goals and priorities. I evaluate their importance and urgency. I block out time for what matters to me.
I wake up early. I stick to a regular bedtime, so I feel refreshed and ready to start the day.
I review my commitments. I let go of relationships and activities that give me little in return. I hire professional help or delegate tasks to my children and coworkers.
I limit distractions. I turn the television on only when there is something specific that I want to watch. I let others know when I need to concentrate and avoid interruptions. I give my full attention to one topic at a time.
I take breaks and use up my vacation days. I am more productive when I pace myself.
I use waiting time to my advantage. I bring magazines and podcasts with me to airports and medical appointments. I file my nails while I am on hold. I send text messages when I am standing in line at the grocery store.
I organize my home and workspace. I clear away clutter and keep frequently used items within easy reach.
I seize opportunities. I have the courage to be spontaneous and try new things. I pursue my passions and continue learning. I embrace change and keep my eye on the big picture.
Today, I recognize that my time is valuable. I focus on the things that bring me joy and meaning.
