I make effective use of my time. By having an organized workspace and a clear schedule, I increase my efficiency.
My workspace is tidy and I can find things when I need them. When everything has its place, I save time. My workflow is uninterrupted because I take the time to organize myself.
I use any available tools to keep me focused and on task. At the start of each week, I make a schedule so I know what I am expected to accomplish. A clear schedule helps me move forward without stopping to figure out what to do next.
Making time for mental breaks is a responsible and necessary part of my day. Scheduling short mental breaks for myself every few hours makes it easier for me to return to my tasks on a timely manner.
Instead of being carried away with a distraction, I add a 10-minute break to my schedule where I can engage in whatever activity I desire. At the end of those ten minutes, I return to my work.
Setting limits to my time off allows me to enjoy my time more because I am free from guilt or insecurity. I know I am free to momentarily disengage my brain from my work and relax.
Even during a mental break, I refrain from becoming idle. I am constantly exploring, thinking, and creating in my mind. I take advantage of every opportunity to maximize my success.
Today, I choose to maximize my use of time by planning and organizing my workspace. I keep my off-task time within the responsible boundaries I establish for myself.
