Everyone has the same amount of time in a day. 24 hours. That’s it. Here is a list of some of the most common culprits:
Busy work – Many times we try to trick ourselves into thinking we are working with paperwork, organizing, or returning emails. We have to know the difference between major and minor priorities.
Smart Phones – This includes online videos, email, texts, dating websites, blogs (I know I know), and all aspects off social media.
Television – The average American watches between 4 -7 hours of tv a day. That is ridiculous.
People who just want to hang out – Spending time with people is actually good for you. It meets social needs, brings happiness, and a sense of well being. Just not when you have things to get done. There is a time and place for spending time with people for the sake of spending time together. Just not during your productive times when you are trying to get something done.
Set boundaries with your time and let nothing interrupt you.
