Take some time out for yourself

In today’s busy world it really is important to make sure you take some time out for yourself. I think I’ve just survived a weekend of work. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve had a lovely weekend, but it really has been hard work.

I did what most people do, I tried to cram too much into too little time. Did I achieve anything? well, yes in some ways I did, and No in other ways I didn’t. You see I had so much listed to do that I couldn’t possibly have done all of it.  Once again, a lot of the list is still on the to-do side of the paper and not crossed off.

As I realised late last night, it was my choice, I could stop, go and have an early night and wake up refreshed this morning, or I could drag myself online, try to do a bit more on my sites and not get anything finished off.  Guess what, I went to bed. Had a good nights sleep and feel a lot better and more focused for the start of a new week.   It’s been a good start, as I have already found yet another excellent free report to add to one of my sites. More on that later in the week.

Focus is only a little word, but it means a lot. Look it up  in a thesaurus and you get the noun Concentration, this then breaks down further to motivation, single-mindedness and application, which are all the requirements of task management. I’m still struggling with juggling, and I know what the answer is, I’ve got to get more Focused. I know that somewhere lurking on the hard drive of this computer is an excellent report on how to compile your to-do list, how to categorise the important items and how to implement strategies to get where you want to be quicker. By the end of today, I’ll find it and post a link to where you can get hold of it also.  This post goes back to an earlier statement about stop wasting time. I can’t believe I’m still doing the same old. I’ve got to change my habits.

About six months ago I bought a book by Paul McKenna, “Change your life in 7 days” it included a free mind programming cd, I’m ashamed to say, I got to about page 61 of the book, and have not even taken the cd out of it’s wrapping. Isn’t that dreadful of me. Time this week to take some time out for myself and read that book. Self imporvement, here I come.
