Consider Pareto’s Law or the 80/20 Rule: most of what makes your life wonderful comes from only a few uses of your time. What are those things? Your health, your peace of mind, your relationships, your accomplishments, your occupation? Identify the 20% of the things you spend time on that produce 80% of your life’s value, then start saying “No” to everything else more often.
As you become increasingly aware of how you spend your time you can also identify how well you spend it. Take advantage of the old saying "You don't know what you've got until it's gone" and start subtracting things from your life. If you don’t miss it once it’s gone then it wasn’t worth your time. Subtract and subtract and eventually you’ll have simplified the use of your time to only those things that add a lot of goodness to your life.
P.S. Would you like me to give you an assessment-type worksheet to download and use in incorporating these concepts? It's already on the agenda, but if you think it could be useful now, then I’ll get to it sooner than later. Just let me know.
