Lisa Jacobs’ “New Year for a New You” Review: Day 5

As 2017 winds down, I’m in full “Year in Review” mode. So it’s perfect timing for me to participate in Day 5 of Lisa Jacobs’ New Year for a New You annual review!

Here are my responses to today’s prompts (and, if you’re curious, you can also read my responses to the Day 1, Day 2, Day 3, and Day 4 prompts):

What are your main priorities in life (i.e., family, profession, marriage, personal well-being, etc.)? List them in order of importance.

  1. Family
  2. Writing
  3. Fitness/Health
  4. Financial Freedom

Use the graph above to chart how you invest your time during a typical 24-hour period.

Does your time chart (where you’re spending your hours) reflect the priorities you listed in question 1, and in the correct order?

Yes, sort of. I spend a lot of time working in order to provide for my family’s financial freedom, so #1 and #4 are pretty bound up together in some respects. Even though “financial freedom” is listed last, it’s actually a part of my other commitments and priorities, if that makes sense.

How might you rearrange your schedule for better results?

The number one thing I can do is to stick to a schedule. The graph I’ve drawn is my “ideal” day, rather than my “usual” day, most of the time, and I’d like to improve on sticking to my own ideals, rather than dropping everything in order to satisfy others in 2018.

What about you?

How do you spend YOUR time, and how will you rearrange your schedule in 2018?
