Time is a valuable resource. Did you spend your time wisely this year? What can you do to cultivate more quality in your time during 2013?
I don’t necessarily equate quality time with spending time wisely. Any time I am with my family and friends and/or doing something I love, that’s quality time – even if it is only five minutes. Those five minutes could be more productive and more lovely than an hour or an entire day.
Some people live and die by their watch and their schedules. Good for them. But that’s not me. We spend too much time worrying about this sort of thing. I think any time you are doing something you enjoy or are with those you care about – that’s all you need.
Do I waste time on the internet and doing mindless activities? Yes. Who doesn’t? When I need to do something or I’m on deadline, it gets done.
My main thing is that I need visuals. I need calendars around me – to do lists – reminders – hanging up where I can see them. That way my project or task I need to do is always in the front of my mind. If I have that, I’m good. If I don’t, I flounder.
Yes, I could be a better manager of my time. But when it really counts, I’m at the ready. I’d rather live in the moment rather than worry about the seconds on the clock. My motto is that if something needs to be done, it will get done. Simple as that. 🙂
*I’m participating in this year’s December prompts series that began as Reverb and has branched out into several other incarnations of the project. It is a way to close out the year by reflecting on that which we are leaving behind and looking ahead to the possibilities in front of us. I hope you’ll join us as we strengthen old friendships and make brand spanking new ones.
