The Art of Saying No
Managing your time is not a science of learning how to juggle more and better and faster. Rather, it’s about doing less. It’s about taking a good hard look at how you spend your time and making choices about whether or not you want to continue to spend your time in this way. It’s about delegating, asking for help. It’s about saying, “No” to some things and “Yes!” to others. It’s about rearranging your day, so you get things done more efficiently. It’s about eliminating those wasteful ‘time vacuums’ so we don’t inadvertently get pulled into something that we don’t need. Time is about choice.
Choice is freeing.
It’s about getting the right things done in the right amount of time- “right” that is, for YOU. You set the terms. We don’t need to get caught up in the “mad rush” to do MORE MORE MORE FASTER FASTER FASTER. Sometimes we have to do more in one area of our lives, so we can choose to do less in others, and that’s ok. Everything that needs to get done will get done.
Once you realize you can make choices about how you spend your time, you will no longer feel burdened by not having enough of it. Rather, you’ll feel calmer, have higher quality relationships, have more energy, and experience better health. Your life will open up to limitless possibilities! You’ll find time for that art class you’ve been wanting to take, that movie you’ve been dying to watch, the date you and your husband have been planning for the last 2 years. Yes, it’s true. Exciting, isn’t it? By taking control of your time, you will be able to do all of those things, and then some. Your life is happening now, now is the time to love and live it.
