Yes, our own happiness matters in big ways. So, how about we set our schedules? I am guilty of feeling like I need to respond to people right away when they need help. Whether by email or social media or a phone call, I feel the need to be there. As I start to set boundaries, I implemented a business policy a few months back that is helping a little, but I’d also like to curb my need to respond to others right away. I am also working to prioritize family, limit screen time, stick to business & volunteer hours and schedule my own writing time.
Of course, sometimes a schedule has to be rearranged to respect others involved. And then there is the upheaval of a schedule when school is out for summer. Yikes! Almost time! I will do my best to respect my wishes.
How will you respect your wishes?
If we check in with one another at least once a month, then maybe we’ll take the time to try to grow toward our goals before next month, right?
