TED Talk Tuesday

Does the phrase “there are not enough hours in a day” sound familiar?

Are you constantly striving to squeeze everything into one week, day, hour, or even minute?

How well do you manage your time?

There are 168 hours in a week – more than enough hours for your needs, desires, work and personal lives. 

I do not have time = It is notpriority

Prioritize what is important to you and you will have time.

“I don’t have time to exercise.” = “Exercise is not a priority.”

Make youyour healthpriority.

In Laura Vanderkam’s TED Talk, How to Gain Control of Your Free Time, she debunks the myth that there is not enough time in a week for working professionals to live happy, balanced, and productive lifestyles. Vanderkam examines how busy people spend their time, and she found that many people drastically overestimate their commitments each week, while underestimating the time they have to themselves. She shares a few practical strategies to help discover more time for what we value most, so we can “build the lives we want in the time we’ve got.”
