It’s no surprise that most of us are living busy, hectic lives, and finding time to do all the things we want to, is one of our biggest challenges.
The demands placed on us, either personally or by others, often pulls us in multiple directions during the course of our day or week.
Any advantage we can achieve to gain more time each week can make a huge difference in what and how much we accomplish.
For most professionals, a working week is typically 40 hours, therefore, in order to gain five working weeks over the course of a year, our objective is to save at least 200 hours. If we use 50 working weeks a year, that means we only have to save fours hours per week, which is not difficult at all.
What can you do with the extra hours?
It’s common for busy professionals to give more attention to their career or business endeavours, however there are many other benefits to gaining additional time each week such as:
- Giving more attention to our mental, emotional and physical health.
- Learning new skills.
- Completing an education course.
- Spending more time with family.
- Having more time off to pursue passions or hobbies.
- Starting a new venture or project.
Gaining additional time each week does not necessarily involve making drastic changes. It requires us to become smarter and more intentional in how we use our time.
