I keep thinking about the amount of time that daily activities take. From the five or fewer minutes to make the bed each morning to the potentially hours-long activities such as deep cleaning, grocery shopping, or cooking. Sometimes it’s simply overwhelming, and there are only so many hours in a day.
Time and again I come to the realization that the systemization of your life makes the most productive choice. Sure, it may not be the sexiest, fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants option, but it really does give you the ability to check things off. And do so efficiently.
That isn’t to say that you shouldn’t leave room for inspiration to strike. In fact, I believe that you should include time in your day to do nothing. Just sit and be. Because it’s in those moments when your mind is wandering that the real magic can happen.
