Balance Tip O' The Week
The secret to organizing time effectively boils down to knowing what’s important and what can be put off. It’s key to use the sharpest knife possible when cutting the essential from the secondary. My compulsion to make lists helps me see what can stay and what needs to be trimmed. It helps to ask yourself questions that determine the level of urgency . Often I fall into the “instant-and-immediate” answer syndrome just to check off my list. Avoid that. Give yourself time to do what you need to do correctly. Be fully present. The bottom line is that treating everything as top priority is draining, depleting and stressful. So, Prioritize ruthlessly!
