"It's not how much time you spend, it's how you spend your time." -Brian Buffini
This year has been full of growth for me. I finally get it. I'm 30 years old ya'll...and I finally get it! Life is all about living intentionally. It's NOT waking up each day to discover what's going to happen to us, it's NOT doing our best when the opportunities present themselves, it's NOT about letting life "happen to us". It's about making the most out of our time and LIVING ON PURPOSE.
We all have the same amount of time in each day. 24 hours. How we prioritize that time is up to us. As moms, we dedicate so much of that time to our children. And that's as it should be. When we own a business, that business is our "baby" and takes a lot of time and nurturing as well. Many days, the 24 hours we are given is not enough. But, we must make it count. Here are the ways I make sure my time is being spent well:
Do one thing every day. This is so important when you have a long-term goal in mind for your business, your family or both! Even though you cannot do it ALL every day. You can do a little bit every day, every single day. If you are trying to grow your business, set a goal to make 5 new contacts every day, write 5 note cards or 5 make phone calls. If you are trying to spend more quality time with your children, read one book per day, sing 3 songs together each day or spend 20 minutes outside together. All the little things will add up to become BIG THINGS.
The key to all of this is to LIVE INTENTIONALLY. Have a purpose behind why you do what you do. When you discover the value to intentional living, that's when your BEST LIFE can begin.
