Today’s quote is so amazingly fitting in so many different ways. One would be the quotes themselves; I find that they really do help to keep me focused on my goals and to stay better on track when I’m looking at them. And when I look at a quote for the day, I write about it. I have found that there are several days last week and this week where I haven’t written about a quote, which means I haven’t looked at a daily quote. A huge part of that is my workload. It really is alot and it’s not unusual to find members of my team putting in 10+ hours a day. The workload that I have means I haven’t even taken the less than a minute to simply read a quote and since I haven’t been doing that, I haven’t really been reflecting on how it applies to me and my life in general. Which I find to be a problem for me, I really need to make the time to do this each day. Even if I really can’t make the time to write about it, I really do need to make the time to read and reflect.
I do the majority of my exercising at lunchtime. My job has a gym on site with several treadmills, free weights, weight machines and even classes. I find that going there at lunch is a lot easier for me because I’m already here at work. I don’t have to make an extra trip someplace. I have a very flexible job in terms of when I go to lunch so if there’s a day I’m hungrier I can go to the gym earlier and get my workout out of the way. I don’t do as much on the weekends, because there’s other things that come up or other things I’d rather do. That’s an area I’m definitely lacking; I need to do more on the weekends. I need to make time to do it.
Tracking what I eat is another thing I must make time for. Like reading a quote, it really doesn’t take long. I do online tracking and most of what I eat already exists in their database. But some days I don’t want to take the 5 minutes to do it. In order for me to be successful, I need to do it, and I need to make sure I have time to do it.
What do you need to make time for in your life?
