It’s February and 2014 is in full swing. Is it getting a bit busy with commitments, activities, projects, obligations and responsibilities? Is your calendar overstuffed? Do you have too many obligations and not enough time to get it all done? I have a suggestion, leave space for ketchup and white out on your calendar.
Ketchup = time on your calendar to catch up
White out = time on your calendar that is intentionally whited out with no appointments or obligations
This is a helpful tool that reminds us that it’s important to purposefully leave open pockets of time on our calendar, because this provides us with time to catch up to the fast pace of life. By leaving blank time on our calendar, we give ourselves time to pause, breath, reflect, and organize. Who doesn’t need that?
