My calendar used to be so full there was nary an unscheduled, white space in it.
This board meeting, that networking group, this event, that book club, this church group. A home business, business team meetings, master-mind calls, webinars. I’d start a weekly business group here and a bi-monthly women’s mentoring group there. I’d swoop in and volunteer two hours of time here, four hours there, plus an extra quarterly leaders’ meeting over there.
I scheduled all of these commitments around my full-time job of homeschooling my son.
Plus, reading for pleasure, reading for personal development, reading for spiritual growth, exercising, caring for five dogs, being a wife, mom, friend, sister, cooking nutritious meals, keeping the house clean (or not so clean, or just clean enough not to completely repel a visitor) . . .
