Good afternoon! Today we are talking about time and time management on our weekly T.O.P.'s Tuesday post. I've considered myself an organized, prepared, and on-time person yet in the past year...not so much!
I joined Epicure as a consultant in July 2020 and it has changed our lives for the better. We are eating better and having fun sharing healthier seasonings, time saving cookware, and the benefits of cooking at home with so many people. It's a blessing for sure.
I wasn't this busy when the school year started yet as the calendars turned, my business started to grow and the opportunity to reach more people along with it. This is exciting and I enjoy every moment. With this being said, I hope to continue to grow and share so this summer is VERY purposed and disciplined. My goal is to have healthy habits, time-management, and work/writing/Epicure balanced.
A few things I've done and I am doing to accomplish this goal:
1) Using a 15 month Calendar for planning purposes
2) Using a Monthly Planner designed for someone who works and is in direct sales
3) Power Hour - at least 5x a week (1 hour of uninterrupted work time via Zoom with others - cameras on, sound muted - only unmute to ask for help)
4) Exercise 4 - 5 times a week at the gym
5) Using the Planner EVERY DAY - check the night before, create my list, and get it done the next day!
6) 7 - 8 hours of sleep each night
7) Getting up early
8) Doing something outside and away from the house EVERY DAY
9) Keeping the house picked up so it doesn't get away from me
10) Reading at least 15 minutes a day
Am I achieving these every day? Nope
Do I start each new day driven to accomplish them? YES
Will I have it mastered by the time school starts? Yes and No
Yes - I'll have heathier routines and balance for a summer schedule
No - I'll need to tweek and modify these routines a little yet they will be a priority the first 2 weeks of school!
I share this with you because I have goals with my writing, speaking, blogging, podcasting, and to grow my Epicure business. In order to do this, I must take care of my self ad dedicate time to self-care as much as I do the things I'm passionate about. You need to to do the same thing? Are you?

to three hours of a regular day."
