If I Had one More Hour Every Day...

If you had one more hour every day, what would you do with it?

We recently asked a group of around 300 special education professional from the Lewsiville (Texas) Independent School District that question. Here are some of the answers we received.

If I had one more hour every day, I would...
...sleep. Yoga. out. with my dogs.
...clean up. a good book.
...make a puzzle. my cat.
...make more jewelry.
...tap dance.
...make beads.
...spend more time with my kids.
...spend more "fun" time with my kids.
...relax with a glass of wine.
...write my dissertation.
...spend more time with my family. sure my house is always clean.
...walk outside.
...plan a sail to Europe.
...spend more time with my 3-month old and my mom who has stage-4 cancer.
...volunteer my services to needy people at an adult day stay.
...walk my dogs.
...start classes for a master's degree.

These are real answers from real people. The point is this—when you implement the tools from this workshop, you save—conservatively—an hour every day. An hour a day less spent looking for things, being in doubt about what needs to be done next, dealing with the consequences of forgetting, or feeling the stress of a world that is harder than it needs to be. An hour more to do the things we would like to do.

If you had an extra hour every day, what would you do?
