This is actually my second time reading Amy Lynn Andrew’s eBook Telling Your Time. I even purchase the newest version of her book which I’m happy I did! Ready to learn more about her book. Read my quick and easy review:
5 things I learned
Equating time to weight loss – minutes scheduled needs to be less than minutes in a day. Budget your time just as you budget your calories.
To not schedule every minute or live by the clock. I needed permission to not do everything, to let me know I was being to strict with myself.
Many times we make external changes, but it never works out because we really need to make internal changes. Here is another great analogy that is just like the weight loss mentality, we buy the workout clothes, the gym membership, the perfect app, but we don’t work on the issues that got us overweight and we are surprised when we fail.
Two of the most important roles you can add to your list of roles are self and dreamer. You are not adding self to make you center but because you are aware that none of your other roles can be accomplished without taking care of yourself. You need to add dreamer because if you don’t add your dreams to your schedule none of your dreams will really come about.
Writing everything you want and need to do may make you realize you may be trying to do too much.
