Part of my work with clients involves creating new routines to allow them to become more effective with their time or to focus on developing new behaviors until they become a habit. The first part of the process is identifying what needs to change and getting very clear on the outcome, so they can then craft the routine that fits with them and the lifestyle they want.
I am currently working on establishing stronger boundaries between work time and personal time. The end of my working day can sometimes be a bit blurry as I allow something I am engrossed in to compromise time that I wanted to be available for the family. I have also been known to sit down on the weekend to quickly do some work on the computer and find a couple of hours have disappeared before I know what’s happened!!
So I am starting to fine tune the routine that I have been working with up to now, to see how I can complete my work within set hours. As I have started to implement new ways of working I am reminded that there is always a period of discomfort when I have to think a little bit harder about what I am actually doing, and it can feel like it is taking longer to complete my list of tasks to begin with. This is just a natural part of the change process and will quickly disappear as the new routine or way of being becomes a natural part of my life.
