Read a review today of Randi Zuckerberg's new book, Pick Three (and yes, she is the sister of that "other" Zuckerberg).
Subtitle? you can have it all (just not every day).
She identifies 5 "buckets": work, sleep, family, friends and fitness.
And she says: on any given day, prioritize 3. Be an "Eliminator" and consciously leave out the other options, just for today. Not a "Passionista" who's trying to do it all and be it all and ends up exhausted. And the "Renovator" might be necessary during a particular period in my life when I'm fixing up stuff that's been neglected -- but not forever. "Superhero" supporting someone else? Maybe short term but again time limited. "Monetizer" primarily focused on making the big bucks? Never been my focus actually.
Sure, "pick three" is inherently asymmetric on any given day: but in the long run, "pick three" if monitored to ensure that the other options have their turn too will balance out.
OK then: today I pick sleep (slept in a bit -- but only just now caught up on the Royal Wedding clips); and fitness (going to the gym a bit late too) and family. Will spend time with DH later when he gets back from his Saturday morning golf with his buddies.
How about you?
