Happy October Bad A$$ Woman!
This month, we are focusing on how we can expand time. Being a woman in leadership, we often feel like there is a pressure cooker around our schedules, which can lead to stress. On the flip side, we can also procrastinate about things like taking care of our health or finances thinking we have plenty of time.
During the Master Class, we discussed how you can expand time while standing more fully in your leadership as a woman.
Primarily we are focused on two areas. The first is your thought leadership around time e.g., being present, creating special moments, trusting the ebbs and flows of time, being appreciative of your time and the time others spend, etc. Each of us shared how we each experience time. We also spoke about what sayings and beliefs we’ve heard about time and if that is still true for us e.g., “Time flies when we’re having fun” and “Time is a created thing.” To say, ‘I don’t have time is to say ‘I don’t want to.’” — Lao Tzu
Further, we covered practical tools like Steven Covey’s 4-time quadrants and how we can get out of crisis and distraction mode and into more effectiveness. Below we have some additional tools for you like the Make Time For Fun Kit. Also, because many of us are not only responsible for our own productivity but also responsible for helping our teams be as productive if you’re interested in our business transformation program to increase productivity and reduce unnecessary expenses, let me know since we didn’t get to it. In the meantime, here is what a few of you got from our time together:
- Insourcing the need to be appreciated
- Scheduling travel time to reduce stress and manage her time better.
- Gratitude for mostly being out of Steven Covey’s Quadrant 1
- Focusing more on Quadrant 2 – Effectiveness
- Taking advantage of the time of day when we have the most energy and get as much done at that time (not just when everyone else does or thinks we should do).
