Where can I find ME time?

Last week, I wrote about ME time for the start-up biz person.  Do you take it?  Do you avoid it?  Do you think that you do not have the time to take it?  You get the gist of where I am going with this…..

My thoughts were that YOU cannot afford to skip ME time, and my task was for you to make a list of 3 ways that you like to pamper yourself (I know you are laughing – what, pamper myself?)

You do not have to share your list…it is personal, but I have a very simple solution on where to locate more time for YOU!

Watch this and see how I suggest that you find some time to incorporate your pamper ME list.

I know that this may seem silly, but it is a really good exercise to track time.  It is important to measure this vital resource, both how much we use and on what.

I track (or at least try my best) my time directly in my calendar, but there are so many ways that you can record what you do and for how long.  You can go old school with paper and pencil or high tech with an app for your phone.  It does not matter how you do it, just that you actually keep track of your time!

Time is your most valuable resource in running your business, especially if YOU are in a service oriented biz.  So, cut the fat, get rid of wasted time, and spend a few quality minutes on YOU because ME time will make you approach business and life better and stronger!
