Doesn’t it seem like time is flying by when you look at your children and how fast they’re growing?

But then it seems like time is slowly dragging when you’re working and you just want to get everything done.

The most valuable asset you have as a working mom is time, but unfortunately so many of us feel like time is just slipping away and that we have no control over it.

That there just isn’t enough time in order to get what we need to get done, to have free time for ourselves, as well as quality time with our families.

If you struggle with time, you’re not alone.

Most accountant moms are struggling with managing their time and finding time to do all the things they have on their ever-growing to-do lists.

In order to make more time, you have to get a handle on one of the biggest time sucks – indecision.

One of the best time saving strategies I know is making swift decisions and honoring those decisions.

We burn up WAY too much of our time in indecision.

If time were physically like 100 dollar bills, indecision would be like carelessly tossing thousands of dollars into the air.

Indecision just wastes so much time and money.

What typically happens is that you put off making a decision and waste time thinking about it, worrying, fretting, going back and forth about it.

Then wind up eventually making the decision in an instant a week or so later.

That’s always an option OR you can make a decision now and not change your mind.

You can save time by making decisions swiftly, honoring them and moving forward. In order to save a lot of time, I suggest you make a decision, take 5 steps forward, make another decision, take 5 steps forward, rinse and repeat.

If you want to save time, don’t second guess yourself; have your own back on your decisions.

Give yourself permission to believe that there is no such thing as a “good” or “bad” decision.

What do you want to do with your time? 

Make a decision and honor that decision no matter what.

That’s how you save time.


Now it’s your turn – what decisions haven’t been made, that are wasting a lot of your time in indecision and worry?  Give yourself by the end of today to make a decision and also decide to honor that decision. 

Now have fun with the extra time you saved.
