Happy 2019 everyone...Welcome to the world of Time Management for entrepreneurs and busy people, generally!
I'm Malinda , 1Minutemom and over the past few years, I have worn many hats, that have resulted in the need for extensive practising, apply and studying of time management techniques. Now I really want to help you get to grips with it, so you can shorten your learning curve into productivity and a happier life.
I hope your year has gotten off to a fantastic start! Today I would like to discuss two topics that are not often spoken about together . They are Valentine's day and time management .
Yes , strange topic to blog about, but honestly they do actually have a correlation. Valentine's Day – it’s all about showing you care for those you love, admittedly, with something of a huge marketing angle thrown into it by retailers , at the same time ! But let be serious here, it’s pretty difficult to love others when you don't love yourself first. To add to that, shouldn’t we be more loving on more than one day a year ??!!
Time management and Self Worth
Has anyone noticed, towards the end of last year, that after a very busy year, you tend to have a lower self-esteem, or feel pretty drained? In fact, if you've gone through a number of extremely busy years, were you’re struggling to get through the work set out for you, it tends to be really difficult to love yourself because you start to feel the burden of not achieving as much as you wanted to.
I’m certainly more inclined to beat myself up, emotionally for not doing more. Think about it ! What you’re taking on, and what can you actually, realistically achieve, in the time period that you have ?
On top of that, come issues of boundary setting. We just lose them completely ! This is where time management techniques can turn your life around really effectively, within just a few weeks. By achieving more on a day to day basis, you, as a person will start to regain a new level of self confidence and self-esteem, that you might not have seen in many years .
Give it a try...
To top it, you have nothing to loose.If you set yourself 1 new step to learn, every day, you can have a whole new way of running your complicated life, in just 30 days.
Turn THAT into a habit over 3 months and you have yourself a productivity level and self confidence level that can blow you and your loved ones away. Not to mention a new ability to show more love to those around you. Wouldn’t that be an awesome Valentine present to you and your loved ones ! And it even works if you haven't got a “Valentine” lined up for 14 February, because you are loving yourself for a change!
Trying to get to it all...
