Our next Weekly Planning Hack is to give things boundaries. Parkinson’s Rule asserts that activities will expand to the time we give them. If we block off huge swaths of time, do we use them most effectively? Are we clear about the smaller tasks (i.e. cleaning out the car for a seasonal detail) which can fit in around the bigger tasks?
At the same time where might we need to say NO to certain things? What activities are taking important space which is needed for other things that are going to move you ahead in the medium- and long-terms?
As you approach your focus this week, here are some questions to consider:
Giving things boundaries can feel challenging in the moment AND as we do it can be liberating.
What do you notice about your boundaries?
Enjoy the conversations!
