What does waitressing have to do with time management?

Do you feel like you have no time to do the things you want? I sometimes find myself in that space. 

There’s no shortage of things vying for my attention (if you’ve been following me on social media you know the new studio is mostly to blame!) 

What I’ve found is time is kind of like water - and priorities (hear: values) are the glasses keeping it from spilling all over the place. 

The notion of having it all just doesn’t exist - mostly, because it lacks a definition. What you can have, however, is what matters to YOU, and that comes with balance. 

Balance doesn’t mean juggling balls and hoping everything stays in the air. It’s about prioritizing, which is derived from your values. 

My picture of balance comes from my waitressing days, when I’d have seven plates in my hands. They were all stable, they weren’t wobbling, but it was very clear which had priority - the one in my right hand had to be set down first so I could unload the six in my other arm. 

When we have this clear picture of what’s most important to us, we have the opportunity to say no to things that don’t fit. 

Without this, our time is just splattered all over, without and real direction. 

When I really think about it, I don’t “have time” because my jars are full... full of down time and dates with my kiddos and my husband and my work and volunteering and (of course) my runs and workouts.

It’s okay to say no to things that don’t give you life and don’t fill you up. The key is figuring out what does fulfill you, and say yes to that. 

(I also hope you recognize that taking care of yourself is at the top of the list for habits that will fill you up and empower you to realize your full potential!)

You matter. You’re enough!
