I've heard so many times that time is our most precious commodity, and I get it.⌛
The truth is the older I get, the more I get it. When I was young, I used to roll my eyes and clench my jaw when I heard older people talking about how much they wished they could take back time. They would tell me in, what felt like at the time, a patronizing way to enjoy every moment of being a mom, of being in practice, of being healthy and having energy.
At that time these suggestions would annoy me because I was all about staying in the spiritual groove, in the moment of what was right in front of me.
The truth is, now that I move towards 50, I hear myself saying over and over to the young people who I serve, “enjoy every moment,” “time is the most precious commodity,” “they grow up fast,” “you're going to blink and it's going to be over.” 🕰️
One of the things that I say to the new moms in my practice, when they are struggling and stressed out and sleep-deprived and trying to heal from childbirth, is that they will barely remember this time.
The beginning of motherhood feels like a dream to me. I kind of remember moments in between the exhaustion, miracles, and precious experiences - but just little moments. They feel more like faint memories than anything else, because really that's what they are. 💭
So, here I am on this side of the fence with my kids older and my practice moving into its senior years, and I want to squeeze every single moment out of my experience as a Chiropractor as possible.
That's why I implement these tools. That's why I study my schedule and maximize my days and do all of nothing at all on the weekends.
I want to fill every single morsel of my experience on the planet with joy and love and great memories. 💗
The more I plan for it, and the more I cater to the needs of organization and respect for time, the more it seems to slow down in some kind of magical unicorn-like way.
So I offer you, my community, the tool of learning how to organize your time. The time map is a good one. It's one of my favorite tools of all of the tools that we offer at Staffless Practice. Please see our FACEBOOK PAGE for more goodies for Staffless practice success!
