inbox, an overflowing sink of dirty breakfast dishes … is this what the experts
mean by “having it all?”
You’ve organized, prioritized, delegated, and simplified, and you still
don’t have enough time for your family, your spouse, your friends, your
boss—much less yourself. You’re a veteran of the time-management wars, fighting
for the life balance ideal, and you’re losing. So, short of quitting your job
and running away from home, what do you do when you can’t keep up? The answer,
says Mary LoVerde, is to reach out and connect—with loved ones,
with colleagues, with yourself. Instead of wondering how you’re going to get it
all done, you’ll master the connection solution by
– Using microactions: Teeny, tiny steps to propel you toward
– Rethinking rituals and traditions: Preserve what’s important
to you and your family, and get rid of the time-consuming things that everyone
takes for granted;
– Instituting policies: Easy shortcuts sure to bring tranquility
into your daily life.
If you’re concerned
about the quality of your home life, your work life, and your inner life, you’re
about to discover that connection works better than the fanciest daily planner
you’ll ever fall for. Toss out the to-do lists–it’s time to Stop
Screaming at the Microwave … and connect!
