Summertime. Parades, fairs, picnics, concerts. Even with the longer days, it can be hard to fit all the fun into 24 hours. Work and sleep, too. Unfortunately, the hours don’t always balance. Maybe it’s time to gather back-to-school supplies for the kids. (ALREADY?!) Maybe the house needs a bit of clean up. (Does it ever end?) It seems like there are always too many “maybes” to get in the way of summer fun.
It does not have to be that way. I’ll share a few secrets for squeezing more hours in the day and chasing away the “maybes” that eat up the fun time. How do you begin? Prioritize and simplify. As you begin this task, put a little vase of gerbera daisies at your side. A happy, simple flower to remind you “K-I-S-S” (Keep it Simple Silly). Whenever you get overwhelmed, gaze at the daisies for a moment and think, “KISS”! Then, back to the task at hand, prioritize and simplify.
