How am I using my time?

I’ve been my own worst enemy when it comes to time management. Way back when, it was procrastinating on papers for my undergraduate work, to more recently staying up to late to aimlessly consume light media until all hours of the morning. Looking back at it, even with two growing boys to enjoy and a career that needs more of my personal resources, time management has been my enemy. Via LinkedIn I stumbled upon the book Essentialism: The Disciplined Pursuit of Less, which has been like Manna from Heaven for me. We don’t need more, we need to do less better. One major personal downfall is thinking that I can do it all, until I’m ready to emotionally pop…the idea that I’m somehow a superhuman who can do and achieve vastly more than anyone else is flawed to a wise person, but wasn’t so to me.

In the coming weeks and months I’ll be more deliberate to be careful about what I’m doing with my time and how I’m committing myself to tasks. More doesn’t make us happy, it only makes me try to do even more. I need to do less better…
