Affirmations are great to help you change your mindset to be more positive. Take the ones that can be applied best to you and write them in places where you can see them everyday. You can also record your voice saying them and listen to them everyday.
There is only so much I can do in a day. My time is valuable and quite limited. For this reason, I am very selective as to which activities and responsibilities I choose to take on.
I realize that it is impossible to be everything to everyone. Stretching myself too thin leads to disappointment for everyone involved.
I prioritize my time in this order: family, career, personal time, and socializing.
Above all else, family comes first. If I must choose between attending my son’s football game and putting in overtime at work, you bet I will be sitting on the bleachers! The time I spend with my family is priceless!
My motto is “delegate, delegate, and delegate some more!” If others can do a task just as well as I, then I let them handle the job.
My children take care of the dishes, laundry, tidying up their rooms, and cleaning up after themselves. I feel confident about giving them these responsibilities. It prepares them for the adult life.
If I am very strapped for time, I know that I can call in a housekeeper to do light cleaning and go grocery shopping. This shaves off hours from my to-do list!
I outsource simple work-related tasks to a virtual assistant. Again, this allows me to prioritize my schedule and free-up much needed hours of my time.
My time is valuable. I can only do so much with my time. Therefore, I enlist the help of others to maximize my reach.
Today, I put my pride aside and ask for help when necessary. Though I would like to think I am bionic, I accept that I am simply human.
1. Which activities can I painlessly remove from my schedule?
2. How can I spend more time with my family?
3. Is my job too demanding?
