‘There’s never enough time…’
‘I don’t have time…’
These are just some of the regular sayings that we’ve all used at one time or another.
What I learnt in my other life, as an executive secretary, (yes, weird, I know, but I did have a life once upon a time, lol), is that even if something may just take an hour, set aside an extra hour of time, giving yourself the ability to reduce your stress levels so as not to rush and forget things.
Pace yourself because rushing through something will give you a rushed result!
And no one wants something that has been done half heartedly.
The use of a calender is very convenient these days, especially on mobile phones because you can even set reminders and type memos helping you with details you may end up forgetting.
So although it sounds tedious, trust me.. You’ll be happier and more calm instead of stressed out due to forgetting.
Don’t forget that stress tends to affect all areas of your life. Your family, friends and co-workers will mostly likely bear the brunt of your stress.
For moms and dads it is essential to have open communication and a visible calender just so things don’t end up in a ‘he said/she said’ situation as far as work, kids functions and activities, etc goes.
For us single folks, our appointments, meetings, dates, errands, activities, parties, functions and upcoming weddings… Yep, a calendar is a must to manage our days and time!!
It may take a little getting used to planning your day using your calendar, but you’ll be on time, every time, all the time!
Happy scheduling people and welcome to time management 101 !!
