How to Make Time for Yourself

When was the last time you put your own name in your calendar? If you’ve never done it, it probably feels weird to even think it. But think about this…

We don’t place ourselves in our calendar because there is a portion of us that believes the white spaces belong to us. In fact, the white spaces are more dangerous than the blocked spaces because they are the ones that can leave us meandering with no purpose.

If you ever want time to focus on personal growth, recreation, amusement, rest or any other personal development initiative, try putting your name in your calendar and don’t break your commitment to yourself.

You’re Worth Your Time.

Oh, and if anybody asks to meet during your scheduled time with yourself just say, “I’m sorry, I have a prior commitment.”
