Finding Time to Ask Paula!

This morning we’re introducing a new category to our blog here at The Time FinderAsk Paula!

We anticipate that it will be a good spot to highlight questions (and comments) that come to us in response to blog posts and to our e-zine (which will be firing today a little before noontime ET, by the way)!

We’re looking forward to being able to expand on the already-lively dialogue in our Finding Time Community – and this is a great way to start!

So, to inaugurate Ask Paula, here’s a question from Bruce K. in California:

How do I know if my choices around time really do fit with my values?

What a great question!  This is a topic that Heather Dominick actually touched on in our interview on Tuesday night.

In response to a question about making choices and taking risks, she suggested doing a body scan and noting where your feelings about a particular choice reside.

She went on to say that if you feel the energy of the choice in and around your heart, it is probably in sync with your values and core direction.  If, on the other hand, the feelings are centered in your head, you may be over-thinking and forcing something.

To delve further into this – on a daily or weekly basis, ideally, I’d encourage you to step back and think about your values.

Then also, periodically, pause and assess how you are feeling about your time choices.  Ask yourself:

How do I feel at the end of the day?

Do I feel satisfied?

Do I feel like I’ve accomplished something?

Or do I feel anxious or indecisive?

Do I think about the things I could have done or should have done?

The answer to these questions will tell you if your time choices fit into your values.

Knowing how you feel about your choices helps you see your priorities – and then you can tweak things, to bring them into better sync with your core values!
