One cannot manage too many affairs at the same time. People make time for who they want to prioritize for. People text, call and reply to people they want to talk to. Never believe anyone who says they’re too busy if they wanted to be around you.
If you’re that important, they will make that effort; if they don’t, you know where you stand.
We all make time for what we feel significant in our lives. It is something we can never get back. So, we need to use it wisely. When we’re trying to motivate ourselves, we have to appreciate the fact that we’re even thinking about making a change. And as we move forward, we have to be good enough to make it.
We need to find time for the things that make us happy. Don’t even dare to allocate it to people who can’t give it to you in return. Do one thing at a time and while doing it put your whole soul into it. We have a limited time on this earth.We do no have to waste our time on someone or something who doesn’t have anything better to do but screw with our life.
Managing our time to do what we have to, can be challenging. We have to prioritize. We don’t need to waste our precious time doing things we don’t want to. Once we realize we have to give up almost everything to get what matters most then life becomes more manageable. For example, giving something up, and trying to make everything else work.
One of the most brilliant things to do is to think of tasks in terms of alone-time and multitasking. We are not good at doing things when we are not focused. But there’s a very little amount of time we have when we can focus, compared to a large amount of time when what we can give is only our partial attention. Therefore, we spend too much time on undone projects.
Work is a part of life. We need to balance life by sparing time for office work and house work. We need to blend work and life. We have to stop trying to separate them. Although some people would tell us to stop multi-tasking by focusing what’s task on hand; but in present era, we’re regularly multi-tasking.
As a single mom, I find multi-tasking to work better for me. I can produce more outputs in a day. I wake up early in the morning to prepare breakfast. While waiting for the rice to cook, I prepare our viand. Once done, I press the school uniform of my kids. When they are awake I let them take their bath and change clothes for school and serve them their breakfast. Then, once they are already in school, I will wash our dish and dirty clothes before I do my work as a researcher. After a project is done, I still find time to write articles.
So, I could say that I am excellent at multi-tasking because I have the ability to make time for everything and get it done.
