Many of my executive, career and life coaching clients get frustrated when they can’t seem to fit everything they want to do, into their week.
Sound like you?
Read on for one easy way to figure out two things; How you are currently spending your time and planning how you’d like it to be different.
One of the biggest hindrances to good time management is that we often see it as one big mass of time that needs to be conquered. But if you chunk off the week into manageable parts, lo and behold, it’s a lot easier to get what you are after. And if you are anything like most of the clients I coach, what you are after is a bit more free time for your creative pursuits.
Here’s a list I often give to my coaching clients. It helps them become more conscious of how they spend their time currently and what they might want to change. It takes just a few minutes but it can become pretty obvious how you spend your time currently. If you are happy with it, great. If not, you’ve got a starting place for change. Feel free to add or customize the list of activities, so it fits your real life.
Make your own list down the left hand side of a page, and write the days of the week across the top. Just remember- there are only 24 hours in each day, so it’s pretty hard to cheat on this one!
