To me there's never enough time on holiday. I want holidays to go on and on.
At the start of each holiday it seems as if I've got infinite time ahead (that's a great feeling!), but by the time I've relaxed into holiday mode, the days go quicker and quicker and suddenly it's the end and there hasn't been enough holiday.
But during my working life there's always enough time... for what I want to do.
I'm constantly aware of my Balance Chart (see picture) and know which bits of my life I want to work on at any time. We use a Balance Chart every week at Life Clubs for that reason - so it becomes a part of your life too.
We've customised a Balance Chart that we use at Life Clubs Base Camp, so that we can prioritise each area of work and focus on what we want (or need) to do every day. We delegate to each other, know each other's strengths and weaknesses, tell each other when we need help and then together focus on our next tasks. By working as a team and knowing what's important we're increasing speed and cutting out inessentials.
Why do people say they haven't got enough time? Is it an excuse for not wanting to do something?
If you're finding yourself saying 'I haven't got enough time', just stop and think. What would be the harm in saying 'No'?
Learn how to prioritise, avoid procrastination and say 'No' this week at the nearest Life Clubs to you.
It's a great workshop, we call it Streamlining - we like to think of increasing speed to gain time.
See you there,
