I'm not a big believer in finding balance. I think that's why we take breaks and go on vacations right? Because we've been working hard and that pendulum needs to swing in the other direction. I don't think I'll find that perfect balance of all things. Rather, I think I often work hard in one area and then find myself working hard in another area while the first gets left behind. Lately though, I'm struggling a bit with budgeting my time. I'm not sure which thing is really getting the attention because it seems like everything is falling behind. I often have time struggles like these but this time, the funk has lasted much longer than usual.
We all have the same 24 hours in a day, the difference is in how we choose to spend that time. Lately I'm not sure. Maybe I am working really hard on something but I just don't have anything to show for it? Maybe I'm wasting time on something that's not really a priority? It's time to find out what's going on here. I'm going to track my time for a few days to find out what's going on.
Recently I realized that the things I think will take a long time, often don't. And the easy things seem to take twice as long as I think they will. Perhaps I have no real idea of how long tasks I normally do typically take. Well it's time to find out!
