Time Management - Finding Some Personal Time
Personal time or relax time is often why people want to learn how they can squeeze an hour or so out of their busy day. Often though, personal time becomes television time. You may think that if you only have an hour left before going to bed, there's not enough time to start something so you might as well just watch T.V.
That's where you're wrong. You plan your day (even if you don't know it) by working from 9:00 to 5:00, commuting from 8:00 to 9:00 and 5:00 to 6:00. Having lunch from 12:00 to 1:00 and preparing and eating dinner from 6:00 to 7:00. Why can't you plan what you're going to do with the hour that's left just for you before going to bed?
If you chose to eliminate television from your evenings, you could reclaim at least an hour to develop yourself personally. You could learn new skills that you've been putting off like a new language, painting, starting your own company. You could invest your time on reading books that will enable you to start a new hobby or plan the trip of a lifetime. By reading and learning for only one hour a day about things that interest you, you would spend 365 hours per year on becoming a specialist at what you truly love. Who needs to go to night classes with that?! By spending only one hour a day on yourself, you will open up endless possibilities, become a new and improved person who has a life outside of work and therefore does not depend on work to have a life.
Remember: Don't be too busy making a living that you forget to live your life!
