Our reader poll today asks: How well do you set aside time to do things for yourself?
– Very well — I regularly carve out time for myself: 15.56%
– Well — I carve out some time but could do more: 38.77%
– Not well — I don’t often carve out time for myself: 30.12%
– Poorly — I rarely set aside time for myself: 15.56%
If not you, then who? Almost half of you confess to not doing well taking care of yourself by carving out time for you. If you’re not taking care of yourself, it’s doubtful anyone else is. There are some easy ways to carve out time for yourself. It’s simply a question of having the discipline to do it. For those of you who are doing it well, I ask you to go the next step and make sure your team members are taking care of themselves too. Getting that message from their leader should give them the push they need to carve out that time and make sure they have some balance.
