We see Jacq, who works 70 to 80 hour weeks! I know I have worked long weeks before, but never weeks this long on a consistent basis. How about you – are you familiar with long work weeks? It can come down to FOCUS!
Jacq has some advice that we want to consider and learn from.
- She Works
- Remember that a majority of working adults feel they don’t have enough time!
- She is a Single Parent
- And 61% with children younger than 18 feel they don’t have enough time!

- We are all unique; one priority set doesn’t fit everyone.
- Balance is key.
So take a few moments to list your priorities as they are today.

In this way we can step closer and closer to our TIME EXCELLENCE™ goals!
