Your Most Important Appointment
An appointment is simply a mutual agreement to meet with someone at a specific time.
You set appointments with doctors, dentists, lawyers, accountants, contractors and hair stylists, just to name a few. Usually, appointments that are set actually take place. Even when you do have to cancel an appointment, you usually re-schedule it and place the date and time on your calendar.
There's one person, though, that you might frequently forget to set up an appointment with.
That person is YOU.
The reason that many of us can't seem to find time to enjoy ourselves, read something of interest, exercise or watch a favorite television program is that we don't schedule a definite date and time to do so. You are too important to put the things you love to do on the backburner.
Why not schedule an appointment with yourself and write it on your calendar. When the time comes, keep the appointment, just as you would any other.
You'll find that you'll be able to start doing the things you love to do because you'll have a specific time slot on your calendar prepared to give you that time.

How to Find More Time in Your Day-Balancing Career and Family
Goal Planning-Achieving balance in a person's life requires assessment of one's goals and priorities. This translates into sitting down in a quiet atmosphere and taking just a few minutes to think about "What are my priorities in life? What could I never live without?" When one is clear about the things that are important to them in life, it is easier to determine which errands, assignments, and projects to take time out to complete or to dump or delegate. You will then be able to do the things you love to do. Thinking about goals is a crucial step in striking balance for our busy lives.

Looking At Time With A Capital T
I keep a fossil on my desk at all times. Whenever I feel rushed or find myself creating a sense of urgency, I pick up the fossil and caress its polished surface. It's over 200 million years old. Suddenly, returning that phone call or meeting that self-imposed deadline doesn't seem nearly as critical. My ancient arthropod reminds me that, in the scheme of things, this moment is indescribably insignificant. I find that remarkably comforting.
