Some Things That Might Not Make Your Schedule

Posted January 29, 2012

I’m going to go out on a limb and assume that if you set an appointment with a prospective client for 10:15 on Wednesday, you’d put that in your schedule. Right?

How about if the boss tells you they need to speak with you on Friday at 2:00?

And just to beat up the point, how about the client who says they would like to discuss upgrading their service with you on Thursday at 11:00 am?

Why wouldn’t you just commit these appointments to memory and if you remember, you remember?

Because it doesn’t work that way!

These are important things and we don’t want to risk missing them!

Interesting!

How about the other things that important to you . . . personally?

Things like . . .

Having at least one meal with your family this week?

A date night with your significant other?

Time for your hobbies?

Time to embrace your spiritual side?

Perhaps there’s a special cause you want to be involved in?

Just for the heck of it, let revisit the “appointment scenarios” I began today’s blog post with.

Would you just break an appointment with any of those people for the heck of it?

Of course you wouldn’t . . . that would be disrespectful.

Perhaps its time you give yourself the same respect you give others.

You’re so worth it!

    Great post Paul – thanks.  It’s amazing that the first thing that suffers when we get busy is ourselves.  Solid reminder.  Happy Monday.

    • So true Sean!

      Thank you for taking the time to stop by and comment!

      Happy Monday to you too!

    Thanks Paul — Do we always assume there will “be time” for the personal things?  They should be first on the schedule–I apprecate the reminder.  I hope you have a great week and will look back on the memories made.

    • Thank you Debbie . . . That’s the plan 🙂

    Just a great post Paul! Thanks for the reminder. We tend to get so wrapped up in our “business lives”, that we tend to forget that “our personal lives” is what really matters most. Scheduling time to take care of ourselves and loved ones should be prioritized, and not be taken for granted. Great stuff..

    I find myself guilty of that. Your thought puts it in perspective though. I need to reevaluate that and make scheduling the personal items a priority also. Thanks!

    • Unfortunately I speak from experience in this area Mr Rollins 🙂 Thanks for stopping by!
