How to use the Choose Your Time Tool:
This tool is designed to allow you to collect and organize your thoughts once a week to help you focus your time and energy on working towards your metrics, targets, and goals. There is no way to mess up this tool. There is no wrong answer. As you begin to use this each week, you will become clearer each time with what is important and be more diligent about where you spend your time, which is your most valuable resource.
There are 112 awake hours in a week if you schedule 8 hours each night for sleep. Once you determine goals you will work toward in a given week, you can set your priorities for action in each section for work, personal, family, etc. and distribute your 112 hours.
You may want to place these items on your calendar if you use a calendar so you can see where they fit into your week.
As you encounter every day life and things start to shift, moods start to swing and thoughts creep in to either help or not help you get what is important done, you can track these things with the tracker system at the top. Again, there is no wrong answer, this is a tool for you to become aware of what is carrying you forward and what is holding you back.
At the bottom, there is a place for tools to support you all week. Determine a mantra that will keep you on track. Practice gratitude for the little and big things and find the value in the things that went terribly wrong.
Lastly, celebrate the wins, big and small. After all, tomorrow is not promised and if you aren’t celebrating, what is it all for?
