Writing Prompt: Good news — another hour has just been added to every 24-hour day (don’t ask us how. We have powers). How do you use those extra sixty minutes?
(I apologize ahead of time, I’m still recovery so I’m pretty sure this is gonna suck)
Right now I can honestly say that I don’t need the additional hour, I learned a long time ago that time management is key.If you spend a small amount of time each day prioritizing the tasks that need to be completed, and now that those on the low end of can wait until the next day, you’ll end up with more time doing the things that you want to do.
Kristi Hedges argued that our goal as individuals and as a society should not be an abstract idea of “balance” — with equal allotments for home and work — but rather giving workers the flexibility to “live full lives as they see fit.” To measure that, she suggested several guideline questions — measuring energy, engagement and time. If you have those, she wrote, you have it all. In August (2013) The Huffington Post posted a poll, “What Would You Do With An Extra Hour Every Day?” the results were interesting.
So clearly relax is the top winner, which seems like the obvious choice, who says I don’t want to relax and and I don’t need any extra time to relax…
I think that I’m living the balanced life that I want to…. at the end of each day (well most day) I go to bed knowing that I’ve done what I want to do… so I guess I’m okay.
Until Next Time….
