🌴💆 🌴 Nº52– Cycling, Startups & Sales ✌🏻️
By Twotone Amsterdam • Issue #52
ok, maybe not this week but every week does have 168 hours.
  • wait, actually zap 49 just for sleep. (Don’t try to cheat on this)
  • ok, so 119 hours
  • but you’re an ambitious professional so subtract 56 for work. (8hrs/day @ 7days/wk)
  • your weekends are off-limits? Ok, 11+ hours a day on weekdays only. FYI: productivity craters after 6 hours a day. If you work more than 56 hours a week, you may need to examine your time use. ; )
  • Ok, but let’s assume 56 then & you still have 63 hours
  • take out two more chunks of non-fun activity – 7 hours per week of commuting, and 13 hours per week of errands and routine housework – and you’re down to 43 hours. 
  • This is the amount of time you have for family and other aspects of life: childcare, cooking, and other responsibilities on the home front 
  • Let’s put you down for 20 hours of that.
Guess what: that leaves you with a full 23 hours. 
  • You’ve been saying you don’t have time for exercise, but it seems you do (and exercise makes you more effective the rest of your week at work and at home). Let’s devote 3 hours to that
  • Still give you 20 hours of free time to do whatever else makes you happy and healthy. Maybe that means doing nothing.
It’s surprising, isn’t it? With a little prioritizing and planning, work and life aren’t so impossible to balance. So here’s the real question: Why are we always so stretched? Why doesn’t 168 hours actually feel like enough time?
time sucks: social media, TV, gaming etc.
time confetti: 1hr of play with your kids >distracted 15min interactions
and technology: unplugging actually leads to higher productivity. (for me that means bike rides!)
p.s. thanks FB ‘memories’ of me posting this article 2 years ago! ; )
As always, thanks for reading!
