If you are only doing some necessary activity because it seems like you should, ask yourself if there is a way to get it done more effectively through a third party.
do it yourself
In my house, we have a saying, “If it matters, you’ll find time for it.” There are some things you can’t avoid (like doctor’s appointments, getting ready for a family visit, creating a presentation for your boss). These are the things that are essential to being an adult. This is where prioritization meets organization. When evaluating my three page to-do list I scrapped page three because I didn’t make time to replace the plastic seat adjusting knob in my car I paid others to do page two including swapping curbside pickup for grocery store trips but still had to figure out how to have the remaining tasks more effectively. These are not only those that fall squarely in my path, but also those that I need to be present in and in the moment. For me, this includes practicing cheerfulness, having dinner at the table every night with my family, getting enough sleep, training in the gym, and being fully engaged when preparing for each client meeting. After separating the wheat from the chaff, the activities that require my personal attention can be undertaken if I remain organized and organized. Of course, regulation is an entirely separate rabbit hole to dive into.
Setting priorities is the first of many steps to make each day less stressful and start spending 24 hours in your day more deliberately. If you do, you may already have time to catch up on the next episode of Weird things.
