Make Room in Your Life for the Things You Enjoy Monday, November 8th is “National Ample Time Day”

Millions of Americans are overworked, overtired, and just plain stressed out. According to a recent study by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, the average working American spends 1,976 hours a year on the job. Between 1979 and 1999, the average American working year lengthened by 50 hours, or nearly 3 percent. Today, the pressure has increased to get more done with less—less time, less staff, and less money.

Millions of Americans are overworked, overtired, and just plain stressed out. According to a recent study by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, the average working American spends 1,976 hours a year on the job. Between 1979 and 1999, the average American working year lengthened by 50 hours, or nearly 3 percent. Today, the pressure has increased to get more done with less—less time, less staff, and less money.

Monday, November 8th is “National Ample Time Day.” Take time on this day to recognize the importance of proper time management—of making ample time in life for priorities. The number of hours in a day will never increase, so there’s no better time than now to make some tough decisions. Which tasks should you continue doing yourself, which can you eliminate, and which should you delegate to others? If you focus on the tasks that bring you the most enjoyment and most income, you will watch your business grow.

“Many people are starting to embrace the concept of using virtual assistants (VAs) to free up their time.” says Lauren Hidden, owner of The Hidden Helper, LLC, a virtual services firm. VAs have only been in existence for about 10 years and not everyone is familiar with what they are. The IVAA (International Virtual Assistants Association) uses this definition: “A Virtual Assistant (VA) is an independent entrepreneur providing administrative, creative and/or technical services. Utilizing advanced technological modes of communication and data delivery, a professional VA assists clients in his/her area of expertise from his/her own office on a contractual basis."

Cameo Publications, an editorial and publishing consulting and services firm, uses The Hidden Helper’s VA services regularly. “Sometimes there are tasks that need to be completed, but our regular staff is tied up on other projects. It’s nice to know we can use a VA as needed for editorial support, transcription, research, database management, travel arrangements—just about anything. Since we are a small company, it gives us flexibility without the commitment of adding a regular staff member,” says Dawn Josephson, founder and president of Cameo Publications.

A virtual assistant is not the only way you can free up time for yourself. Are there tasks on your “to-do” list you can eliminate? Can you find a more efficient way to do the tasks you can’t eliminate but don’t enjoy? Take a few minutes on “National Ample Time Day” to evaluate where your priorities lie and free up more time for yourself.

Visiting an organic farm and a rural school, they will have the opportunity to experience “authentic” Costa Rica. Other adventures will include flying over the rain forest canopy by zipline, exploring Veragua Rainforest Park and visiting with local researchers and looking for red hot lava flowing down the sides of Volcán Arenal.

While the trip’s value is $1,400/per person, it’s being offered to educators at a discounted price of $1,000 per person. Educators are invited to bring one companion for the same discounted price.
