Step 1: List the things that are important for you to do with your time (people to spend time with, organizations to be involved in, ways you are going to earn money, investments into yourself, etc.)
Step 2: Prioritize the list
Step 3: Decide what you want to budget your time with (paper calendar, electronic calendar, etc.)
Step 4: Add the required things in your calendar (hours at work, children activities, sleep, etc.)
Step 5: Add the next round of things most important to you (date nights, organization meetings/events, community/networking opportunities, family time, working on goals, etc.)
Step 6: Decide what to do with the remaining time (more community involvement, family time, reading, mentoring others, volunteering, etc.).If you don't some of these steps you are more likely to waste your valuable time when it could be used to make additional investments in yourself and others. What do you think? Do you budget your time? Do you have any additional tips that would help others?
