According to a survey by Day-Timers Inc., on Adults and Their Time:
* 62% of American workers feel they are always or frequently rushed to do the things they have to do. Only 5% rarely or neve feel rushed.
* 52% of American workers mentioned their job as the reason they are unable to spend more time with their significant other
* 65% listed spending more time with their family as a priority or goal in their lives
Perhaps the reason for this is found further down on their survey:
* Extremely happy workers are less likely to feel rushed. They are more likely to have time for community activities such as church or little league. They are also more likely to rate themselves extremely successful, 10% say they are not at all or not very successful.
* Extremely or very successful workers are less likely to feel rushed and are most likely to make a written schedule and prioritize tasks for each days’ work.
*One-third of American workers (32%) never plan their daily work. While 45% make a daily plan at least once a week , only 9% accomplish everything they set out to do. The higher the income, the more likely the worker is to make a written schedule and prioritize tasks.
Clearly setting priorities and working towards them are the key to achieving your goal.
