What would you do if you had an extra hour a day?
This is a common barrier every one run into when you think about making positive life changes: people donâ€™t have time to pursue their dreams.
People donâ€™t have time to exercise. People donâ€™t have time to get organized.
Well, itâ€™s time to make time.
By using some combination of the following, you can free up an hour or more a day. Find the ones that work for you (not all will work for everyone), and then carve out that hour a day.
Then make sure you use that extra hour a day in the best way possible â€” book that hour on your calendar for something you really, really want to do, whether thatâ€™s work on a goal, write a book, start a business, exercise, read more, or whatever. Donâ€™t squander this gift of time!
1. Make an appointment right after work. Whether itâ€™s exercise or working on some other goal, make an appointment to do it right when you get out of work (at 5 p.m., for example).
This works especially well if you have to meet someone else, such as a workout partner or other group or team or coach or partner.
Youâ€™ll be sure to meet the appointment, which means you wonâ€™t stick around work too long, and youâ€™ll be sure to finish all your tasks on time so you can leave on time. This makes you more efficient in the afternoon especially.
