family, friends, work takes up a good portion of one's daily activities. there's also 'me' time. with only 24 hours a day and so much activities to cover, it can get quite overwhelming.
averagely, one spends at work 9-10 hours and sleep about 6-7 hours; leaving 7 hours for family and 'me' time. gym takes 2-3 hours including shower and drive home. that means only 4 hours with the family. if you add dinner time, 1 hour, leaving a grand total of 3 hours with family.
how does one juggle with time to cover all bases. are we setting our priorities right? it doesn't seem logical that family gets so little of one's time when they're the most important aspect of one's life.
some people say "its quality not quantity". how to do quality when the brain is on 'off' mode after work? what's considered quality? doing homework, talking, reading together, play? especially for a non-discipline person like oneself, it's a struggle.
time management and setting priorities is a major revamp for 2009. starting with one's gym schedule. no more daily workouts - 3 times is the target:) that leaves 4 days for family activities. i think that's a good start..the result so far is an expanded waistline:(
tonight, fellow night birds i leave you with a quote from Friedrich Nietzsche;
" he who has the why to live can bear almost any how"
p/s. let's find the 'why' in our lives then, the 'how' should come naturally...
