Episode 40: The Trio on Time for Us

Welcome to Tea, Toast and Trivia.

Thank you for listening in.

I am joined by my sister, Sarah, and my mother, Frances, as we consider the idea of what is called a multiplier effect,  which suggests there are ways to boost our personal productivity.  If we adopt efficiency strategies, such as learning to prioritize our day, eliminate nonessential duties, or simply delegate or delay tasks, will we improve our lives? Will we achieve a higher level of effectiveness?

So put the kettle on and add to the conversation.  We would love to hear your thoughts on

I am your host Rebecca Budd and I’m looking forward to sharing this moment with you.

Thank you for joining Frances, Sarah and me on Tea Toast and Trivia.

One last thought before we go is by Eleanor Roosevelt, “The purpose of life is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experience.”

Until next time, safe travels wherever your adventures take you.

This conversation also hit close to the bone, as I am a recovered workaholic who suffered from too-much-not-good-enoughness, to the detriment of my health and my relationship with my family. And in the end, I had to watch a new boss come in and destroy everything I had worked so hard and sacrificed for. Talk about a hard life lesson to learn. I will never put a job first again.

“Been there, done that, won’t do it again.” Experience is a harsh taskmaster, but the lessons are forever engrained in what we do. My idea of saying “no” was “noooyyyesss”. I find that we must must must be ever vigilant with our understanding of time within the context of our existence of forward motion. I always enjoyed Helen Kellers take on learning lessons. “Life is a succesion of lessons which must be lived to be understood.”

Three important takeaways from your conversation, ladies. The first is managing time to align with our values so that we have time for what’s most important to us. These can be hobbies but also that important time we spend alone with our thoughts, which in turn enable us to find ways to actually enact our values. The second is the importance of making time for whatever compassionate community we’re part of, making sure we water that garden which sustains us. And third, is learning to live those quotes which inspire us. Always a joy listening to you and reading the comments here. Hugs for all!
