With everything that’s going on in the world right now…all the change, all the upheaval, all the emotion...there is so much on our mind and so much we want to be doing.
We’re taking time to pause, to think and turn inward.
We’re choosing the actions we want to take.
We’re reassessing who we are, the world we live in and how we can make it better.
…we can’t be expected to do everything right now, that we did before, or at least not in the same way or at the same pace.
In this new reality we find ourselves in…living amongst a pandemic, facing the hard truth of racism, dealing with whatever is personally going on in your own life %FIRSTNAME%…we really need to cut back on what we’re actually doing. Our to-do lists need to be shorter and our priorities made even tighter.
There are lot of ways to define your priorities, but today I want to give you just one question that is going to make them clear the quickest.
Ready for it….here it comes…drum rollllllll! 🥁 🥁 🥁
If you had only 2 hours a week to do everything you want, what exactly would you do? 🤯
Wait…what!? 2 hours!? Now that’s a thought provoking question, amiright?
We spend so much time trying to squeeze in every last bit, every possible thing, and fill every minute of every day…we never stop to think “How little can I do?”
This really brings you awareness about what is absolutely most important to you. Focus your energy on that and I know you’ll have a huge impact, and make a difference in this world.
So little time but there’s so much that needs to be done. Like with my situation, I formulate anti aging skincare products and also I have a 1 yr old baby. Managing everything; house chores, kids, my social media accts, blog, etc is really hard.
A to-do list, just like you mentioned and a set priority in mind are really helpful in organizing and managing my everyday tasks.
You’ve got a lot going on Riza – setting those priorities can be a challenge when you first get started but it gets easier and will definitely be a huge help for you!
“Our to-do lists need to be shorter and our priorities made even tighter.” – This hits so close to home. A lot of my friends panic esp. during this pandemic when they don’t feel like they’re doing enough because their to-dos are so short. I guess it comes with being stuck at home. But you’re right. It’s okay to do as little as possible and focus on our priorities. Prioritizing also helps us to declutter our brain and ease the burden of being “on-the-go” which is harder nowadays. 🙂
Yessss Gail – a lot of what we do is based on “should’s”! Like during this pandemic, and being at home more, our brains try to tell us we “should” be doing more (and society doesn’t help with all their ideas of how to fill our time during the pandemic LOL).
Omg 2 hours is too tight but I’ll probably focus on giving myself and my tasks 30 minutes each.
I total get that 2 hours can bring up a lot of “stuff” LOL, and that’s exactly why it works (it challenges you to think about what you do in a totally different way). Give it a try and let me know how it goes 🙂
