How do people do it? You watch your colleagues and friends carry out their lives in a seamless fashion and see that they have every aspect of their worlds under control.
But after a long day at work, the last thing you want to do is have to cook dinner, make arrangements for that dinner party on the weekend, pay the bills, go shopping – or complete whatever else is piling up on your to-do list. Even your relationship with your partner has been inadvertently put on hold. Even if you had time, you wouldn’t have the energy to give what he or she deserves.
Note to self – your friends and colleagues DO NOT have it all under control and are either a) cutting some corners to get it all done, b) pretending that all is okay when in fact it is not or c) have a personal assistant to help them look so “together”.
A busy work life and social life is all well and good but it means that you as an individual struggle to achieve all that you want to or even need. When you are overworked, the stress can affect all aspects of your life, heightening your emotions and even adversely affecting your relationships with those around you.
Organisation and delegation need not be a nasty word. It is surprisingly easy to hand over certain aspects of your life to a trustworthy and reliable individual leaving you free to do the more important things in life – even for those self-confessed control freaks.
A personal concierge can assist in certain aspects of your life allowing you to meet other more timely deadlines such as those in your work life. Your concierge can do the stuff that is bogging you down and essentially give you permission to take time out for yourself and for those around you.
Now when was the last time you managed to find some real quality time for you and your loved ones?
You can’t do it all and you shouldn’t expect to.
Over the next few posts I will give you some tips to make your busy life run more smoothly and show you why you deserve to have a life and enjoy it!
