Further Secrets of Adulthood:
I never think about "balance," because that suggests that there's room for everything, if I could just juggle it correctly. Now I tell myself, "I have plenty of time for the things I love to do"--which means dropping things that I don't love to do. This mantra has really helped me make better decisions about how to spend my time.
How about you? Do you have any strategies for making sure that you spend your time doing what you value?
