Reframing Your Time


I think it’s safe to say that most of us are in a constant battle against time. Work is demanding, projects have deadlines, and we strive for a good work-life balance so that we aren’t neglecting our families and friends (or ourselves). While we can’t add additional hours to the 24-hour day, what we can do is reframe the way we think about time. A small mental shift can help us work with time instead of against it.

According to an article published recently on the Inc blog, we should learn to appreciate the fact that “busy” is better than “bored.” Busy people live more interesting lives, so think of your packed schedule as a benefit rather than a drawback. The article also suggests that we find a balance between our work lives and our personal lives, and that we structure the day around our internal body clocks.
