[podcast] Own Your Day #106

NOTES

Do you often feel overwhelmed by multiple responsibilities pulling you in different directions? Do you often feel like you are failing at many things — important things — that others count on you for? Do you feel there is never enough time for you, for your spiritual life, for you work, your kids, and your marriage?

If so, JOIN THE CLUB. So many of us struggle to find balance in our lives. In this show, we talk about some steps you can take to begin to take more responsibility for how you spend your time and energy each day. We talk about how you can begin to live your life more purposefully and with intention, in line with the many priorities you care about. I offer these steps:

1) Recognize that you get to choose.
Take responsibility for the fact that you are not a victim. You are in control of your life and you get to decide how you will spend your time.

2) Decide what your priorities are.
Take time to think about what things are important to you and how much time you think you should reasonably spend on each of them on a regular basis.

3) Make a plan.
This can be a formal, written plan, or it can be an informal one you have in you mind. Figure out what works for you.

4) Start now!
Stop thinking you will “get organized” later. Begin these steps today and then enjoy the peace of mind that comes amor having a thought-out plan for your life, in whatever way it works for you.

And tell me what does work for you! I want to know your thoughts and ideas about taking better control of your days. Let me know what you think!
