Maximize Your Time (Part 5) | Eliminate, Automate, Delegate
Maximize Your Time (Part 5) | Eliminate, Automate, Delegate

Many of the posts in this series so far have highlighted the importance of focusing on what is absolutely essential in your life, rather than just taking it all on and struggling through your day.  If you're feeling overwhelmed, "crazy-busy" and out of control, you're going to need to begin to cut out some of the tasks on your current to-do list...

Maximize Your Time (Part 4) | Set Boundaries

Last week we talked about focusing your attention on the "Essential Few" and letting go of trying to keep up with the "Trivial Many" as Greg McKeown outlines in his book Essentialism: The Disciplined Pursuit of Less.  One of the most effective ways to limit the non-essentials in your life is to set boundaries.

Of all of the strategies I've learned over the years about how to save time, this is the one that has changed my life the most.  Saying yes strategically is something that never occurred to me before (in fact, I was taught to say "yes" to everything without question...).  When I finally learned how to say yes strategically, my life improved...

Maximize Your Time (Part 1) | Commit to Your Priorities

When I went back to work after I had my son, I was absolutely clear that my family was my priority.  It was a no-brainer for me.  Nothing is more precious to me than my family, and there was no way I would let my job get in the way of my responsibilities as a mom and a wife.  No way, no how.

10 Important Ways to Maximize Your Time
10 Important Ways to Maximize Your Time

As I mentioned in my last post, the number one complaint I get from working parents is that they "don't have enough time."  The problem with that statement is that we all have the same amount of time everyday.  We all have the same amount of time that we've always had.  We all have 24 hours to spend however we choose every day. The time isn't the...

Don’t Have Enough Time?  That’s Not the REAL Problem
Don’t Have Enough Time? That’s Not the REAL Problem

As I began putting the pieces of the Working Parent Resource website together, I asked working parents what their single biggest challenge was. Almost every single response was some variation of the exact same issue: I DON'T HAVE ENOUGH TIME. I feel ya!  I had the same thoughts after my oldest son was born. But here's the thing:  we all have the...
