Pay yourself first in time.  Get out your planner and schedule all the important, personal things you want to attend or achieve.  They’re key to keeping you happy and productive, and they deserve to go into your planner first. Put the good stuff in before all the obvious obligations.  Plan out your quarterly breaks, family fun time, and long weekends away so you have something to look forward to.  This will ensure these activities don’t get pushed to the bottom of your priority list where they’re overlooked.  Life feels lighter when you can anticipate enjoyable events, by keeping them visible.”
