  • How Did You Get So Busy? | SUCCESS For Women
    you to reconnect with what matters most What are the signs of authentic success for you Write them down Make your definition personally meaningful and easily measurable For example I know I ve had a successful week when I was productive at work but left the office on time enjoyed a date with my spouse took time to exercise at least three times and spent time doing something I love with people I care about As Patricia discovered on her journey and I discovered on mine the key is to be intentional in your everyday thoughts and actions Consider these time tested steps to reclaim your schedule and reconnect with what matters most 1 Shift your expectations Redefine success on a personal level All for one woman is too much for another You can have it all but you don t have to have it all at the same time Learn to make schedule adjustments based on what most needs your attention rather than attempting to equally balance every activity Get clear about what is a priority at this stage of your life and take a more relaxed approach to the rest 2 Establish your non negotiables Eating sleeping quality time with your spouse or children some things on your schedule shouldn t leave room for negotiation When you allow these things to be squeezed out the consequences can be devastating Decide what is nonnegotiable for you Then plan the rest of your life around it 3 Ask for help In years of coaching women I ve noticed that too many try to go it alone They don t ask for help either out of fear they won t get it or that others won t do what they want done as well as they do it One of the keys to happiness is having a support system and sense of community What do you need help with Perhaps it s the laundry or the cooking a project at work or picking up the kids from school Go through each of your to do s and ask Who could help me with this 4 Don t be a maximizer Dr Barry Schwartz author of The Paradox of Choice Why More Is Less says the abundance of choice in today s culture robs us of satisfaction To free up time and mental energy limit your choices throughout the day Rather than perfecting every decision what clothes to wear what to eat which gadget to buy establish your minimum standard and then choose the first option that meets your standard It s called being a satisficer and it s the opposite of being a maximizer someone who agonizes over every decision to find the perfect choice 5 Promise little if anything at all Next time someone asks for something be intentional about not creating pressure by promising what you cannot deliver I ll do it by Friday morning may be too much I ll do it by next week gives you wiggle
