Challenge: Identify Your 'Time Sucks'

Today’s Work It Daily Challenge is to identify your “time sucks.” You probably know someone who seems like they "do it all." Have you ever wondered how they can make the time? We all have 24 hours in a day, yet some people seem to accomplish so much more within that time frame. But why can't you? These days, it feels like we never have enough time, we’re always running late, and there’s always something more important to do. Sure, we live in a demanding, fast-paced world. But if you don’t make time to do the things you enjoy or need to do, you risk falling into a dark pit filled with stress, anxiety, and unhappiness. Your time is a precious commodity, so you should treat it like you treat your money. In order to develop a healthier work-life balance, you need to pinpoint where your time and energy is going on a daily basis. Are you spending it in the right places? Today, take some time to identify your “time sucks” and determine which ones you can eliminate or reduce. For example, are you spending all of your time waiting in traffic? Perhaps it’s time to consider moving closer to work or finding a new job that’s closer to home. Are you wasting all of your time in front of the TV? Give yourself a “TV allowance” each week or stop watching TV altogether. Are you saying “yes” to too many activities you don’t care about? Determine which activities are the most important and decline the rest. When identify your “time sucks,” it makes it easier to ration your time on more important things. What are YOUR “time sucks” and how did you overcome them? Tell us!
