With July almost in the record books and fall on the horizon, it is not too late to plan for some down time. Open your calendar and block off some of that unplanned time available in August.
Maybe you can squeeze in two hours on August12 that are blank right now; label those two hours so between now and then you will know that is a two hour already scheduled and not available for anything else.
Unplanned time that goes unscheduled is like a puddle of summer rain – we only notice after it evaporated that it is gone.
Remember: Personal time is the saving account for your sanity.
