Thanks for the mention, Preston! I’m glad that you’ve found ways to take more control over how you spend your time in order to focus on higher-value activities, both at work and home.
Everyone can benefit from this level of intentionality. We often go through our lives and careers on autopilot, feeling vaguely dissatisfied and frustrated, but plowing ahead into the next day, and the next.
Your advice is a great way to address this problem. Taking a moment to have a greater awareness of how your time is actually being spent, and then creating strategies for reclaiming time to spend it in more meaningful ways.
