Do you remember the expression “that all work and no play made Jill a dull girl?” Jill knew that there was a time for play…that was after the work was done. By setting priorities and goals for yourself and making a dedicated commitment to meet those goals, you benefit from reduced stress levels and increased free time to pursue those things you like to do, or do nothing at all should you choose.
Write down all the things that need to be done in order of their importance. The greater the importance of the task, the higher it goes on the list. At the bottom of your “to do” list add your “play time.” This is a great incentive to get things done.
