Welcome to the 168 Hours Time Tracking Challenge!

No notes for slide. PDF Hours: Book Details Author: Paperback Brand: Description Hours It's an unquestioned truth of modern life: We tell ourselves we'd like to read more, get to the gym regularly, try new hobbies, and accomplish all kinds of goals.

This book shows that with a little examination and prioritizing, you will find it is possible to sleep eight hours a night, exercise five days a week, and, more.

So, it's not that we're overworked or underrested. Maybe it's just that too many hours each week get lost in the shuffle.

What if you started out each week with a blank slate and the clear choice as to how you wanted to live out those fleeting hours? You might be surprised to find that you have more time than you think.

Once you provide for 8 hours each night to sleep, and let's say you commit to working 50 hours that week, then that leaves you with 62 hours for other things. The well-lived life will be ever elusive unless we harness our working hours and our free hours to our dreams. That clarity of purpose and disciplined use of time will get us there.

Before you get started constructing how you want to plan for your hours, it's important to figure out how you are spending them now by keeping a time log, which is available at the website www. I was not pleased to discover how well I have learned to procrastinate. I check my e-mail way too often, as well as surf my favorite websites. I might be able to get away with the claim that I was surfing for ideas for future articles, but I know better. I'm really just doing the easier thing.

Hours: You Have More Time Than You Think — by Laura Vanderkam

Actual writing is hard work. As I have three young children and limited working hours, it's disappointing to realize how much of my writing time I'm frittering away, but also inspiring to realize how much more I could be accomplishing with a little more discipline. Another exercise Vanderkam suggests is to compile a List of Dreams.

It's worthwhile to include many of the dreams that you've already actualized. For me, there were some I would like to do again, such as living abroad, and others, like parachuting out of a plane, that are checked off my list for good.

The key here is to be sure that you're spending a large portion of your time on activities related to your life goals.

Aligned with this should be a focus on your core competencies, the things that are important and meaningful to you and that you do best, and that others can't do as well or can't do at all.

168 Hours: You Have More Time Than You Think

It seems integral to the concept of a well-lived life that you choose the right job, one that plays to your core competencies. How fortunate are those who know from a young age what they want to do in life; for others of us, we might discover it a bit late, if at all.

And, to ever be world class at anything, you'll need at least 10, hours of deliberate practice at the craft to get there, at least according to the findings of K. Anders Ericsson now of Florida State University and his colleagues. With the right job choice, those thousands of hours can be a source of joy and satisfaction. To create the ideal work situation, Vanderkam recommends implementing a four-part process:. Get rid of non—core-competency tasks by ignoring, minimizing, or outsourcing them.

The promise here is that you can reach your professional goals without relinquishing what you value in your personal life. If nurturing your children is one of your core competencies, then you'll need to spend some real quality time with them.

The good news is that parents today are doing just that. What gives is the amount of time spent on housework. Unless you don't mind a messy house, the author recommends outsourcing for all the demands of life maintenance, citing cooking, laundry, and cleaning as opportunity costs. To this, I would simply ask: Is it just taking them to the park or reading with them? If they are asked to pick out the apples at the grocery store, they're more inclined to reach for one when they're ready for a snack.

My daughter now takes great pride in helping me cook meals. My older boy likes to set the table, and my younger boy, at 6, has become an expert dish washer. There is something about the concept of outsourcing our life maintenance that is a bit elitist.
