Some people are really good at appearing organised and in control.
Sometimes I think I can wing that appearance too.
Not this week.
I am very late to you today because I just said yes too many times this week.
- Yes to attend network meetings.
- Yes to meet up with clients and suppliers.
- Yes to cover Fit Camp sessions.
- Yes to speak to my family.
Now don’t get me wrong, there is nothing here I don’t want to do. That’s why I said yes, but what I haven’t done it looked at each request and how it impacts my day or week. I’ve just said yes and wriggle and squirmed my way around each appointment.
I don’t like that, it makes me feel like I am always behind.
So I am making a change.
My calendar is about to be colour coded.
- Light blue for networking and building business connections.
- Blue for Fit Camp sessions I run.
- Light green for client time.
- Green for no people time (office based tasks)
- Yellow for day off and fun stuff.
- Purple for family catch up calls.
- Orange for working out.
Now I’ll be able to see where I am putting too much time and not enough. I will report back how that works!
What time management strategies do you use?
This week I shared on social media our first person in my goal of helping 1000 people in Wokingham to feel better. I am launching officially in September, but Liz has been making huge progress in her health and well-being for the last 18 months, it only seemed right that she take the number 1 crown.
Since being with us she’s gone from a size 22 to a size 12. Has come off her blood pressure medication. Gone from inactive to uber-active and is stacking up the miles in her attempt to walk 1000 miles this year (she’s already done 750) and she’s part of the Three Peaks Challenge walk that several of us are doing in September.
She’s a fabulous testament to what is possible with what we have to offer at FastTrack Fit Camp.
My goal is to help 1000 women (or men) to improve their health like Liz. I’ll be launching in September, but if you’d like to register your interest now all you need to do is add you name to this form and we’ll be in touch nearer the time.
Last Sunday we helped raise money for Evendon’s School. A local primary that has 50 parents walking the Thames Path Challenge in September. It was a warm day and we had newbies, children and regulars all join us for a simple, fun workout to help them raise funds for the Alzheimer’s Society. We raised £250 to help them reach their £16,000 total.
Thanks to all who joined us!
