No Time? …5 Steps to make the most of your days

1. Write a To

Do Note

Write down every day 3-6 tasks you want to complete that day

and give each task a number of priority.

Don't allow yourself to put anything else on your list, until those

initial items are completed.

2. Write a

NOT To Do Note

Write down what you're doing each day or week that you want to stop doing. Are you doing things that

you don't enjoy? Are you helping out, and never getting any favors in return?

Are you letting yourself be interrupted feeling that you must always answer the

telephone? Remember, you have the power to say 'No.' The choice is yours.

3. Make Time

Make time for yourself. Give yourself a minimum of 30 minutes every day.

Use this time in a way that to relax - read, meditate, exercise or simply do NOTHING at all. My favorite is to add

something fun like adding a few dance steps while walking.

4. Get

enough sleep

It may sound boring, but it works. Most people need between six to eight hours of sleep, to feel

refreshed and ready-to-go each day. Determine how many hours of sleep you need,

and get that needed sleep each night. If possible, try to go to bed at the same

time each night, and wake up at the same time each day. This will help your

body get into a routine.

5. Define your hours

Define the hours you plan to work on

each project. Even if you run over time, you will find that having a reference

point will help your time management tremendously.



See things

in perspective. Jobs are important. Your friends, families and health are as

important. Remind yourself of this daily. I have a note on my wall that says:

Never take life too seriously.

Time you enjoyed wasting is not wasted time.


time to step back to see the bigger picture. What is really important to you?

Write it down and put in on YOUR WALL!


my best wishes for your success,
