We all have the same amount of hours in a day… But do you ever wonder why some people are able to accomplish more than others?
One word: boundaries.
I absolutely believe you can “have it all” in life (whatever your “ALL” is). BUT, you cannot DO it all, all at once.
Building your dreams may require you to take a step back and become less accessible for a season.
I’m always working on having better boundaries. Here are a few things that have helped me create more time in my day to build my dreams:
Schedule your day/week around your biggest priorities. Analyze which areas of your life need more attention right now, and make sure your calendar reflects that.
Communicate clear expectations with the people in your life about how available you’ll be in this season. When you’re doing big things, it’s vital to have people in your life who get it and don’t take it personally when you are less available for a season.
Add NO to the top of your vocabulary list and let it be a complete answer. If you don’t ever plan to reschedule that coffee date or attend that social event, don’t say, “I’ll let you know.” or L“let’s circle back!” Conserve your energy and graciously decline.
