…. That’s just to name a few.
It can feel difficult or nearly impossible to give them all a fair amount.
So, if you want to boost one area of life without completely detracting from participation in the other areas, HOW can you do so?
The answer is to have a “minimum daily dose” for each thing that requires time, focus, and attention.
For example, when you make one area of life a priority and start dedicating more time each day/week/month (2-3 hours per week), something else has to give.
But nothing has to be completely neglected…. You just need to adjust the minimum daily dose.
--> You might go from spending 5 nights per week with your kids and spouse engaging in family time down to 2-3 nights per week.
--> You might go from working 5 hours of overtime per week at work to 1-2 hours per week.
--> You may decrease the time you spend reading about finance and economics from 1 hour per night to 15 minutes.
You do not have to NEGLECT the other areas of your life in order to devote more time to something else.
Lower the bar, but be consistent.
Give some of your time, energy and focus to every single area of life each day, just decrease the amount.
When it comes time to devoting more energy and attention to family, you might drop your workout time from 60 minutes to 30 minutes.
Hell, you could drastically drop it to 10 minutes per day….
… but if you stayed consistent with those 10 minutes every day, you’d be doing better than 99% of people.
See, most folks use the need to focus on an alternate area of life as a reason (READ: excuse) to completely abandon all else.
This does not need to be the case, if you approach it correctly.
Go ahead, take a moment to realize that you can effectively give time, focus, and attention to every single thing in your life.
That should make you feel empowered enough to start assigning minimum daily doses to each area that’s important to you.
Go ahead, get started! And if you need help, just reach out. I’d love to help you.
