Ten Golden Rules for Busy Women

woman in a rushI first heard these ten golden rules from a guest speaker on one of my seminars and I’ve since shared them with hundreds of women. I think they have something to say to all of us, especially on the thorny topic of feeling guilty; I hope you find them helpful too!

  1. I am not on call to all of the people all of the time.
  2. I have needs of my own and they may not be the same as my friends, family, or colleagues.
  3. I don’t have to say yes to every request put to me.
  4. I don’t have to carry on doing something just because I’ve always done it.
  5. Time I spend relaxing is time well spent.
  6. I know there is no such thing as the perfect  girlfriend, wife, mother or child.
  7. Time I spend feeling guilty could be spent doing more enjoyable things.
  8. I won’t do it for others if they are capable of doing it for themselves.
  9. I owe myself the same care and consideration I give to others.
  10. Remember at all times, especially in the face of criticism, when I’m up against difficulties and anxiety: I’m doing my best!
