During this busy time when schools are starting again, new clubs and organizations are starting, kids are getting involved in fall activities here in the US, it’s time to think about subtracting.

How many times have you said you are too busy? But, then someone asks you to chair a committe or plan the kids school dance and now you are doing even more. If your life is already too full, it’s time to do the one in one out rule. You probably already have it for your things. If you buy something than you get rid of something else.

The same principle works for time. If you decide to say yes to something, what are you going to quit doing? If you don’t quit doing something your schedule will feel even tighter. You can even subtract activities without adding more. I know, it’s quite a concept 🙂
