I’ve been waking up at 4am regularly again. This means that I don’t have enough time during the day and my mind wakes me up thinking of everything I need to get done. Our schedule is too packed, I’m too busy and I’ve noticed things are starting to pile up because I don’t have time to make the progress that I normally do. I’m too busy, have zero time and it’s stressing me out.
I bet you’ve felt like this too – your schedule is full, your place is a mess and your stress level is rising. I encourage you to take time to make necessary adjustments to continue making progress, even if you have zero time. If you do this now, you’ll have a better chance of improving your schedule, your stress level and your sanity.
Remove things from your life.
When you look at your schedule, what do you see? I’ve got a packed work schedule and a packed free-time schedule. And it isn’t working for me. I don’t have time to think if I’m running from one meeting to the next. It made me realize that I needed to start removing some things from my schedule, from my thoughts and from my life. After taking a long look at what I’ve been doing, I started to make changes. I’ve removed important, valuable things from my schedule. Some of them weren’t easy to remove. All of them were necessary to remove. I could tell it made a difference as my stress level decreased with each removal.
I encourage you to look at your schedule right now. How can you get others to help you? What can you remove? What adjustments can you make? The more you choose to focus on the most important things, the more you’ll start to realize how your schedule shouldn’t be filled up with the other things.
