If you could have more of one thing in life, what would it be?
Did you answer with time or money? If so, you are right up there with about 85% of Americans.
We are all. so. busy.
And now, we are suggesting that you take more time out of your day to develop you. If you haven’t been with us the last few weeks we’d encourage to check out our past two posts on why to spend the time and where to start.
This week, we’ve got the VERY exciting chance to talk about WHEN to actually do this.
Some days it can be so hard to find the time to make a pit stop in the bathroom, let alone take a class or work with a Coach!
But, if you just continue to do what you have been, chances are you won’t continue to grow in the ways you hope to. (I know… this post is getting all serious!)
The best way to find the time to develop you is to set aside the time and don’t let anything get in the way.
I can almost feel the eye rolls happening and hear the “But….”
Maybe you need to schedule yourself to “leave” work an hour early once a month but instead of going home, stop by the library to work on your class.
Or maybe instead of hanging out in the break room for lunch, go down by the park and read.
LITTLE tweaks can make a really big difference.
Whatever it is you’ve chosen to do, it is time to make the choice that you continuing to grow is just as important as you getting your job done.
Take out your calendar and choose a time- block it off.
Then, go talk to whoever you need to help keep you accountable to that (maybe it’s your team so that they know they really can’t bother you during that time or your boss or your spouse or trusted friend).
But, tell someone what you are committing to.
We are excited for you to continue to grow and we’d love to hear about what you’ve committed to!
