I am not sure about you, but my year started out in such a rush, I think I already need a break.  The reality however is, it’s not break-time yet and I have to work!  So many things I want to do, so many places I want to be.  I’ve asked around and it seems that this is the reality for many of us, which made me think about what I am busy with and if what I’m doing is really important and worthwhile?

Now I know that our lives not only consist of work, which makes the spending of time even more complex and valuable.  So I decided to re-evaluate my time and my passions and I hope my evaluation list can be helpful to you as well.  I have asked myself three questions:

  1. What are the most important ‘categories’ in my life I would like to invest my time in?
  2. How and can I allocate time to each of these (how will it practically look like)?
  3. When can I allocate my time (what time of the day/week/month)?

My life categories are (in no particular order):

  • Personal environment and organisation
  • Physical health
  • Emotional health
  • Career growth
  • Personal growth
  • Spiritual growth
  • Finances
  • Friends
  • Love
  • Family
  • Social responsibility
  • Play and recreation

You may have different categories or focus aspects in your life, but the main goal should be on trying to keep it balanced and linked to those things that inspire you and make you feel alive.

So hang in there and remember, you also need some Thyme2B you.
