The way you use your time is the way you live your life.
Whatever your passions and priorities may be, pausing to reflect gives you a chance to put your feet on the ground, reconnect with yourself, and take in the landscape from where you stand. Since change is a constant in our lives, reflection allows us to see what’s changed and adjust to it. Without investing in reflection time, we lose ground and lose our bearings.
So, it’s been more than a week now that I’ve been participating in #UBC and what has changed?
So, one of the biggest things I have noticed is that UBS has had a major impact on my time … AND on my reflection time! Usually I like to pause each day and look back, but my increased blogging activity has cut into that time significantly.
So, one of the great advantages of reflection time is that it gives me a chance to re-calibrate. After I see where I am, I ask myself, “What would I like to change, moving forward?”
The answer is: “I want to find more time!”
Now my task becomes finding a way to do that.
(And since I am The Time Finder Expert, that’s right up my ally!)
Looking back over the past 11 days, I notice that while I’ve spent more time blogging, I have also been generally more efficient about it. But I think there are ways that I can build on that and carve out more time for other activities (including self care).
Here are some quick ideas that I am going to try (and I encourage you to consider them as well):
I hope you find some of these thoughts helpful – I know that I feel better after taking some reflection time and developing a plan for moving ahead that’s built on what I’ve learned so far.
Drop me a line – I’d love to hear how #UBC is going for you and what you’re learning as you complete the first third of the journey!
