Write things down! Don’t use your brain as your
day planner. Doing so increases stress.
Consider making five separate “to do” lists. The
first four lists correlate with your four top priority
life categories (from our example above, one for
spirituality/personal development, one for
family/relationships, one for career/work and one for
personal care/health). Then the fifth list would
be for general “to do’s” that don’t fit into those top
From these lists make sure you schedule the important
items in your priority categories FIRST, BEFORE anything
else makes it onto your calendar. As a result you won’t
have to worry whether you’re making time for priorities.
Then you can pick and choose from your general to do
list which additional activities you may need to, have
to or (actually want to), fit in. By the way,
don’t be afraid to use that good word “no” to any
time-robbers you identify!
Number three: Practice being in the present
moment only. Let’s say you’re always thinking
about your endless pile of work at the office when
you’re home with the family. Fact is there is absolutely
nothing you can do about those things on your desk.
Worrying about it takes precious time and attention away
from your priorities and increases your feelings of
dissatisfaction about life.
It takes practice and some mental self-control to keep
your attention on what’s happening in the present
moment, but this tip alone will bring huge rewards.
When you savor the series of life moments one by one,
you will find you don’t feel as though you’re missing
Be patient and loving with yourself. Always
remember, life is an ongoing process and it will throw
you curve balls from time to time. The key to
growth and personal fulfillment is to remember it is a
process rather than an event. But with practice,
you will find coming back to equilibrium gets quicker &
easier. As a result, you will enjoy life more and
have a more consistent experience of happiness.
