Have you ever asked yourself, what does it take to be successful? What more do I need to do in order to experience my ‘lucky break’. Any successful entrepreneur will happily tell you that success is a combination of a variety of different elements…To name a few: hard work, perseverance, time management skills, ability to set realistic but stretching goals…and the list goes on! However one element that tends to get overlooked by the masses is that of having the ability to schedule…To invite a positive balance into your life. The more balanced our life is, the happier and more fulfilled we feel, the happier we are, the more inspired we become, the more inspired we are, the better work we accomplish etc. My aim in writing this article is to bring to light six positive outcomes that are a result of having a consistent but flexible schedule.
1) Enjoy more free time
There is a great misconception that those who keep to a schedule are very restricted. That they don’t have what is known as ‘down time’ or time to relax. However this couldn’t be further from the truth! It has been proven that those who schedule their days are more able to accomplish their tasks in a shorter amount of time, leaving more opportunities to take regular breaks throughout the day. However the more productive we become, the more we tend to fill our ‘free time’ with more wholesome activities, such as reading etc.
