As I mentioned in my last post, the number one complaint I get from working parents is that they “don't have enough time.”  The problem with that statement is that we all have the same amount of time everyday.  We all have the same amount of time that we've always had.  We all have 24 hours to spend however we choose every day.

The time isn't the issue.

The issue is that you aren't utilizing your time in a fulfilling way.  You aren't making the MOST of those 24 hours each day.

As a working parent, you have an insane amount to do in a very limited amount of time.  You have responsibilities, obligations, duties and requests that demand more of you than ever before.

Until you learn how to control what gets your attention throughout your day though, the most demanding request of the moment is what you'll focus on.  The squeaky wheel gets the grease, right?  And let's be honest.  Children can be very squeaky.  Bosses and clients and customers can be VERY squeaky.  A messy house and your kids' after-school activities and an empty refrigerator can be extremely squeaky.  You're just reacting to the loudest squeaky wheel from moment to moment.  By default, you always feel behind and out of control.

The next series of blog posts are dedicated to helping you make the most of your time.  Because your time is precious.  And until you know how to focus on what you really need (and want) to do, you will always feel like you “don't have enough time.”

I want you to stop telling yourself “I don't have enough time.”

Instead, I want you to learn the tools that allow you to think to yourself:

“I love the way I spend my time.”
