As an entrepreneur you need time to just sit and do nothing. Sleep. Read a book. And not go out and party. Or group watch a movie. Or even take care of the kids. Managing ones scarce unscheduled time is crucial. It is one of the most valuable resource that you have.
But how do you tackle the last minute request? There are a bunch of strategies apparently. And this article by Nicole Dieker in Lifehacker provides some clues.
For example : Holding off on answering until you’ve figured whether is is something you really wanted to do? Or Simply telling “I would like to do x, y, z” and actually going and doing it. Spending me time away from home in places like libraries or museums can also we an effective strategy. Share looking after kids with your spouse so one can have unscheduled time, one at a time.
“Yes, you’re going to have to get really good at setting boundaries, managing priorities, and learning how to say no. But keeping some unstructured time just for yourself is one of the best ways to relax and rejuvenate—and it might even help you get more sleep.” writes Nicole.
Very viable ideas to steal time for yourself.
